As an easterner I am accustomed to eating great bagels, the old school kind. Chewy crust and a dense middle. None of those pseudo bagels with chocolate chips or blueberrries. Just salt, poppy seeds, sesame seeds and sometimes onion, or even a mix of all of the above. Not to forget Montreal style style bagels which are on the sweet side having been boiled in water with honey.
I have tried Chompies which are not bad, and Cashmans which are a mediocre imitation of a real bagel. Forget about supermarket bagelels.
Any suggestions short of having them shipped from Essabagel in NY?
