I like bagels. There's nothing quite like a nice toasted bagel with cream cheese. Cream cheese, of course, is the universal bagel spread--it works on all kinds of bagels. Some kinds of bagels don't really work with some kinds of spreads, though. Like, I often put peanut butter or Nutella on raisin bagels. I wouldn't do that with an onion bagel. That just wouldn't be right. And an onion bagel is good for making a traditional deli-style sandwich with meat and cheese and tomatoes, but a raisin bagel would be too sweet for that.
These days I eat more bagels than regular bread. There are a couple reasons. For one thing, a bagel sliced in half is bigger than two slices of bread, so a single serving is more filling. But a loaf of bread also contains more servings--there are six bagels in a bag, but, like, I dunno, ten sandwiches worth of bread in a loaf, or whatever. So instead of having to eat ten servings to finish a bag, it only takes six, and since I finish them faster, they're less likely to get stale. I count that as an upside. Also, it's faster to make a bagel than a sandwich. If you're just adding cream cheese, it takes half the time compared to adding both peanut butter and jelly. So that's upside too.
Anyway, here's a picture of a bagel.
