Important things to consider

Plenty of BagelsIf you’re craving a less traditional bagel for a quick breakfast or lunch, your choice is as unique as you are. From the basic plain flavor to garlic and sesame seeds for bolder tastes; from cheddar cheese or parmesan flavors that remind you of home-style cooking to gingerbread or cinnamon sugar if you want something more seasonal, and even with meat like ham or salmon – there’s always going to be one just right.

Bakeries are known to offer different tastes and flavors of cream cheese spread such as chive and onion flavors that can top your bagels to make them even better.

Choose the baker’s dozen of 13

A baker’s dozen, if you ever heard of the term, will usually consist of 13 bagels instead of 12. The term originated from medieval English bakers giving an extra loaf when selling a dozen to avoid being penalized for selling short weight. So, a baker’s dozen bagels would mean you get 12 bagels plus 1 for free. It’s a great deal, especially if you’re hosting a brunch or simply love bagels.

Is there any way to spend less?

A lot of franchises offer coupons. For example, Einstein Bagels are a great source for deals. For example, on Tuesdays, you can find a $6 dozen bagel deal at an Einstein Bagel! Keep checking their social media accounts or official website to see what other specials they have available. It also doesn’t hurt to join their email list so that the next time there’s something new offered in your area, you’ll be the first to know.

Local grocery stores often offer a better bargain on the bagels than local bakeries, but keep in mind that you may not find as many flavors. If you want to save some money, make sure you go for the plain bagels, which are usually cheaper.
