My mom brought home Thomas Bagel Thins and I decided to give them a try because you know that, for me, heaven is a Sunday morning bagel that’s big enough to rest my head on for a carb-induced nap.
Um, apparently, 1/3 of the calories means 1/3 of the carb density and…1/3 of the cooking time.
Toast lightly, carb fiends! I burned up two of these this morning.
Once you get past that, they are pretty tasty and bagel-ish. Ish. They taste like bagels but they just aren’t as thick and fluffy…and that’s precisely why I eat bagels. They deliver the “Everything” flavor, but they don’t deliver the bagel experience. I would use them more for sandwiches that taste good on bagels, like tuna or egg and cheese, rather than a cream cheese extravaganza. They are dece, but the long ingredients list makes me certain they won’t become a pantry staple.
I must say though, they taste a lot better than the sandwich thins, which, as far as I can tell, provide less flavor and nutrition than a Communion wafer. I mean, no, you can’t put roast beef on the good Lord, but those sandwich thins are vile.
