Step aside, rainbow bagels — there's a crazy new concoction in town
Rainbow bagels? So last month. These days people (at least me) are going crazy over a new trend — Oreo Bagels.
It sounds a little strange, but bear with me. This is a food craze worth getting worked up over.
The bagels, made at The Bagel Nook in Freehold, New Jersey, are a dream. Oreos are kneaded into the bagel dough itself, and once it's baked, the bagel is smeared with Oreo-flavored cream cheese and then stuffed with more Oreos for good measure.
It totally makes sense to my taste buds. Oreo cheesecake is one of the best desserts of all time, and my aunt used to make a dessert called Dirt Cake, which featured Oreos, cream cheese and pudding. Stuffing an Oreo Bagel with cream cheese and cookies doesn't sound like sacrilege to me— more like destiny.
Lest Oreos aren't your favorite (what's wrong with you?), the store offers other insane combinations too. Fruity Pebbles, Cocoa Puffs and Cap'n Crunch are just a few of the mix-ins you can get with your bagel.
I never thought the humble bagel would become a canvas for such innovations, but here we are. And I'm excited to see what's next!
