Hopefully, you all already know that I'm a true Jersey girl at heart. I would consider myself a classic case of "you can take the girl out of Jersey ...,' yea, you get the rest. One of the things that being a Jersey girl makes you, in my humble opinion, is both a pizza and bagel snob. I don't think I realized how 'good' I had it when I lived in NJ full time. You can pop into almost any neighborhood pizza or bagel shop, and you won't be disappointed! In MD, it takes a calculated decision to have pizza for dinner or bagels on a perfect Saturday morning.
Despite my love for a fresh-out-of-the-oven-won't-fit-in-your-toaster, NY bagel, while we were growing up, and since there were four of us constantly scavenging around the kitchen for snacks, my Mom always kept a package or two of Lender's frozen bagels in our freezer. They were the perfect size to pop in the toaster and eat on that walk to the bus stop, and even to get greedy and scarf down a second one. You know, as long as my sisters weren't in the kitchen monitoring my every move.
I had the pleasure of picking up a package of the Multi Grain bagels, thanks to Lender's and Clever Girls, and they did not disappoint! B is a big fan of anything multi grain, so they were a hit in our house! And the best part is, they carry them at many WalMart Super Centers! I love anything I can find at WalMart because I feel like it allows me to get all of my errand running done in one place.
If you're a bagel fan, or just looking for another healthy way to start your day, I would totally recommend you try either of the newest additions to the Lender's family.
