A Guide to Buying a Good Everything Bagel

June 10, 2019 (NYC)– All bagels are not created equal.  Just because a famous bagel store calls that seeded circle with the hole an “Everything Bagel”, doesn’t mean it isn’t an imposter.  In fact, I would argue there are more imposters on the market today than ever.   So how can you, the discerning consumer, be sure to get an authentic Everything Bagel?

The Problem Defined

You get a craving for an Everything Bagel and you walk into your local bagel store.   How can you be certain  the bagel you are purchasing is the very best?  At Davidovich Bakery we understand that buying an Everything bagel, without a source of comparison, can make the answer to this question very difficult.   So we decided to provide a short guide to determining whether your store’s Everything Bagel passes muster.  We decided the surest way to illustrate the differences between an authentic, Davidovich, Everything Bagel and others was to do a side-by-side comparison.

The Bagels Were Chosen at Random

To set up this test we selected a Davidovich Everything bagel at random.  This bagel was not hand selected for this purpose of showcasing our great bagels.  It, simply, was chosen from an ordinary bin of Davidovich Everything Bagels at our Blue Moon Hotel location on the Lower East Side of NYC.

Davidovich Everything Bagel
Bagel #1
Bagel 2

This Davidovich Everything Bagel was placed side-by-side with two bagels purchased at some reputable NYC Bagel Stores.   These bagels, also, were not hand selected by us, but chosen, blindly, by the clerk in  “arms length” transactions.  Both stores were established NYC bagel stores with solid reputations.  The stores had no idea we were conducting this test.

The Results

When we compared the seeding of these three bagel selections, the results  were not even  close.  Davidovich’s double seeded, Everything bagel was generously  covered with Poppy seeds, Sesame seeds, Onions, Salt, Garlic, and  Oats.  Bagel #1 had only a few seeds, that appeared accidental by contact.   Bagel #2 was covered more generously on one side, only, with Sesame and Poppy Seeds.

How can these other Bagel Stores even dare to call their products “Everything Bagels”?

While we understand the cost of ingredients has gone up, we believe discerning customers expect more value from their bagel seller, not less, in these times.  We also know that, historically, bagel stores always reduce the quality and quantity of seeds when they are looking to save a few pennies on their product.  The hope is, that without a source of comparison, the average customer will not even notice.

Well, but-for our little experiment, these bagel store owners may have been correct.   However, once these bagels are lined up side-by-side, the results are undeniable.   Davidovich is the winner by unanimous decision.

In  addition to seeding the test  we went on to compare other salient factors that constitute bagel quality.  The test went on to discuss such factors as texture, flour, density, and more.

Once again, the hands down favorite was the Davidovich Everything Bagel.
