With the back-to-school season upon us, you might be wondering how best to spice up your children's lunchtime fare without resorting to sugary, unhealthy snacks. In order for kids to do their best in school, they need an abundance of healthy foods to keep their minds sharp and their bodies strong.
For more than 30 years, New York Style has been bringing tasty baked New York Bagels to your home that deliver plenty of flavor and an authentic crunchy bite. So why reach for a bag of greasy potato chips to compliment your child's lunch when New York Style Bagel Crisps offer a yummy alternative with 50% less fat and 18% fewer calories?
To be honest, I had never sampled the New York Style line of bagel treats before this review, but have to admit that now I'm hooked! I wasn't expecting the tastes to be as bold or the crunch to be as fantastic as it was. I was sent the new Mini Bagels variety in BBQ and was definitely skeptical before trying them. I mean, this boils down to being barbecued flavored bread...how good could that be?
Well, in a nutshell, they're great! I love barbecue and everything barbecue-flavored, and now I can add barbecue bagels to the list. Although I wouldn't recommend dipping these mini bagels or spreading a cheese on them, I must admit that they are perfect for a child's lunch or after-school snack. They're bite-sized, super crunchy and very reminiscent of potato chips, except much healthier.
Next up was the the larger Original Bagel Crisps in Roasted Garlic. Again, I was pleasantly surprised by the bold flavor and would pair this variety with a bowl of pasta in a heartbeat. I thought that the Bagel Crisps were just perfect for dipping or pairing with your favorite cheeses. Personally, I couldn't get enough of this variety smeared with a dab of cream cheese...so decadent, but oh so good!
