Bagel Variety Economics

Whether it is in a supermarket or dedicated bagel shop, I can't help but notice this situation:

At the end of the day (or sometimes much earlier) they are out of sesame, poppyseed onion, garlic, or plain bagels. The only bagels left are asiago, jalapeño, blueberry, whole wheat, or.... well, you get the ideas.

I leave without buying bagels.

So how does this work? Why wouldn't the store make more of the former and less of the latter? What am I missing?
