These litte bagel bites come in several different varieties from savory to sweet. As you can see, they really are "mini." The serving size is one, but I chose to have two because I wanted a more hearty breakfast. These little bagel bites are found in the freezer section near the waffles. They are frozen, and the directions recommend thawing them out in the refrigerator and then baking them for about 7 minutes.
I followed the directions, but I wasn't preparing them all at once. I baked just two at a time and will prepare the remaining bagels this week. They were crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside, just like the box promises. I did put one in the microwave just to see how they would come out, and they were gummy and not very good at all. Not recommended.
These were very tasty and the filling was plentiful. I was pleasantly surprised at the texture, which was definitely very bagel-like. The filling was good and not too salty. I recommend letting them cool a bit before eating so that you don't burn your mouth on the filling.
The box states that each bagel contains 5 grams of protein, which isn't too bad for such a carb-heavy item. Of course, these are not nutrition powerhouses. Personally, I view this as a once in a while treat while generally going for something with more fiber. That's just me. I think these would be great served at a brunch or even as a side for soup. I'd definitely buy these again and I might just try a different flavor.
I bought a four-pack of this drink that I saw in our local Giant Food store for a family birthday party. I thought it would be a nice change of pace from the usual soda. My birthday party attendees love beer, but I didn't want them to drink and then have to drive over an hour back home on unfamiliar roads. So, I got this instead.
I was ready with my bottle opener in hand but found that the tops are twist off. Upon twisting off the top, there was a familiar hiss of carbonation and ginger-y smell. It has a satisfying brown color and it's pretty fizzy. The main thing I noticed right away about this soft drink was that it is SPICY! It is much spicier than regular ginger ale and it almost had a spiciness that one might find in a hard apple cider. It definitely was not too sweet. No noticeable diet soda aftertaste either, which was pleasant and surprising. Just to let you know exactly how spicy this is, my "spice sensitive" husband couldn't drink it.
We were eating pizza with this, which I suppose was fine, but I really feel that this would pair very well with a fish and chips, burgers or chicken.
After drinking at least two bottles of this, I noticed a peculiar thing. It made me sneeze and actually seemed to help clear my sinuses. I went on Google to confirm this phenomenon and it turns out that ginger actually has that effect on others. The sneezing wasn't bothersome enough to make me avoid this soda. I really loved its different, spicy bite.
If you like ginger ale but long for something more flavorful, I would say to give this a try.
Love the Moscow Mule recipe on the back label! I know you can't see it, but the first ingredient is vodka.
Unfortunately, this does have Acesulfame Potassium and Sucralose and no natural sweeteners, but hey, you can't have everything. I do limit my intake of diet drinks, but I would make an exception for this. It's that good.
