bagels and cream cheeses

indelibledotink | Aug 1, 2013 02:06 AM

been on a bagel kick lately

off supermarket shelves I have tried are:

Thomas everything - my go to brand. presliced, thick, and chewy.

bubba - stay away any flavor

loves - not good either any flavor

there were a few more brands, but they were poor too.

now you may have heard me complain that I could not find a poppyseed only bagel here in Hawaii, so I was excited to see that safeway beretania had artisan bagels with only poppyseeds! I was disappointed to find that the texture is off. they were just mediocre bread in the shape of doughnuts. they are so bready that I am not wasting cream cheese on them, they are getting spread with pb and jam.

I have also extolled the virtues of scallion cream cheese found so commonly in nyc. aside from mixing green onions/chives/onions myself, I have found that philly brand cream cheese with onion an dchives is an acceptable substitute. Lucerne brand garden vegetable cream cheese is not. it tastes alright, like bell peppers, and is thicker than philly.
