Buying Tips

Buy bagels in the bakery, bread, or refrigerated- or frozen-food sections of most health food and grocery stores. Choose the whole-grain variety whenever possible.


Bagels come in dozens of varieties, from sweet to savory, and may contain dried fruit, nuts, seeds (usually poppy or sesame), herbs, spices, or sweeteners. They’re available in whole-wheat, white, and multi-grain varieties.
