Bagels are the quick and easy meal of many on-the-go work peeps, and everyone from adults to children can appreciate the fresh, chewy goodness of a freshly baked bagel. There are many reasons to love bagels, so let’s list off the many wonderful things about this multi-functional food now.

  • Bagels are considered the perfect food primarily for their texture. Taking a bite of a bagel is special, especially when it’s done right. The outside should be crusty by not hard or crunchy, and the inside should be soft and warm. The firm chewiness is the best part, and bagels can even be toasted for even more texture.
  • Whether you’re getting them fresh off the rack at a bakery or toasting one to-go at the house before work, a bagel is always one of the quickest options for breakfast. Their shape makes them easy to hold too, so no matter where you are, you can enjoy a quick snack.
  • Some bagels are hot and crispy, others are gooey and soft. At the risk of this article turning into scary bagel propaganda, there’s almost too many bagel options out there to not like bagels in some form.
  • Between the various styles and the various spreads (cream cheese, butter, salmon), there’s really something out there for everyone.
