1997 Best Bagel

Finagle A Bagel

Their initials don’t spell FAB for nothing. Soft and chewy on the inside, with a firm-but-not-crunchy shell, Finagle’s are what bagels are supposed to be: not too round, not too heavy, not too big. In a variety of flavors ranging from Super Cinnamon Raisin to Triple Chocolate Chip, they can be topped with regular or light cream cheeses, which also come in a variety of flavors.
