* Okay, yes, I agree with the other reviewer that these bagels have more in common with whole-wheat dinner rolls than bagels. Maybe they need a name change, but they are seriously delicious. My diet is low-calorie/low-carb, and most low-carb breads out there are too high-calorie for me. These are wonderful. The bread is soft and tender and moist and practically melts in your mouth. Granted, I've been living the keto lifestyle for nearly two years, so someone who's used to "normal" bread may very well have a different reaction, but for a low-carb lifer who's craving bread, these hit the spot. Too pricey to buy regularly, but perfect for holidays and other special occasions.
* WOW! These are really delicious when toasted and spread with cream cheese or Smart Balance. And they are a pretty big size for ONLY 86 calories and a couple of carbs! Worth the price and I liked them better than any other low carb bagel (more like a roll) that I have tried. BUT, I suggest you freeze them rather than refrigerate if you don't eat them all right away!
* Love these.
A lot of low carb breads either have texture of cardboard or are made with nut flour which makes them taste pretty good, but very high in calories and the texture is off. These taste great and more importantly they are the closest to a 'bagel texture' I ever found and I've been watching my carbs for almost 2 decades.
Yes - they are somewhat expensive, but a regular bagel at Panera for example is ~$1.50 for a 300 colorie carb-bomb. Not to mention that these are made out of much more expensive ingredients than your regular baked goods. Also if you ever tried baking a low carb bread product you know how hard it is to create anything edible, let alone correct in texture, especially if you do not want to rely on nut flours. Bagels in particular are hard to get right even with 'conventional ingredients'. So I say these are definitely worth it.
