The last time I tried Udi’s bagels I wasn’t overly impressed. I just didn’t see the magic in the plain bagels, but I was urged to give the sweeter variety a go by an American GF friend.
The cinnamon and raisin bagels appeal to my innate English appreciation of tea + sweet thing, and make a nice treat for a weekend breakfast. I tried them with just butter, with butter and honey and with butter and lashings of St Dalfour apricot jam (pictured). Mmmhmmm
I enjoyed these far more than the plain variety. I still found the texture a little rubbery, but this isn’t so noticeable when toasted, and the flavour makes up for it. They hold together well and are not too messy,which is an advantage on a rushed morning’s dash-to-the-bus. There are similarly flavoured British treats that I prefer, (Waitrose’s Freefrom Hot Cross Buns and Fruit Scones for example) but I would purchase these again if I saw them on offer.
Bargain alert: This post is rather timely as the whole range of Udi’s bagels is currently on offer for £1 at Tesco!
