Taste Testing O’Doughs Bagel Thins!

The Product

Bagels are one of the few things that I really miss. Over the past five years, I’ve tried almost every brand on the market. Udi’s bagels are OK, but the nutritional information is horrific: add peanut butter to your morning bagel and you’re basically consuming a Big Mac. Other brands taste like wet cardboard, or just bread in a weird shape.

Luckily, over a year ago I heard about O’Doughs Bagel Thins. I did see them at Jane’s Gluten Free in Moncton this spring, but I didn’t pick any up and have been kicking myself ever since. Luckily, we spotted them at Pete’s Frootique in Halifax last weekend thanks to a sampling event!

 

The Test

At Pete’s Frootique, we got to try the sprouted whole grain flax and apple cranberry flavours, toasted and with ghee on top. I also purchased a six-pack of the sprouted whole grain flax bagel thins for $6.99. Here’s what my breakfast looked like the next day:

The Verdict

Michael was with me when we tried the samples at Pete’s Frootique. His first response was, “Wow, these taste like real bagels!” I couldn’t agree more! This is the product that I’ve been looking for. They are light, toast well, and have tons of flavour. As a bonus, each bagel has only 100 calories and 1.5 grams of fat. For some people, that might be too small a serving, but I find that these bagels are the perfect start to my day.

There are some other great things about O’Doughs. For one, they are a Canadian company. As well, their products are gluten-free, non-GMO, egg free, and kosher, making them suitable for a wide variety of diets.

I’m sad to say that I’ve already consumed almost the entire package of bagel thins that I bought last weekend, but I’m glad that I can now get more right here in Halifax!

    And this is why I follow this blog 🙂 AWESOME!! Heading in to Halifax in five days to pick wife up from the airport, will make a bagel thins stop. I wonder if they’ll carry these in normal grocery stores at some point?

    Also, did you happen to notice if they had any plain flavour bagel thins?

      Hehe thanks 🙂 Pete’s in Halifax had all three flavours, I’m heading to Bedford tomorrow and can let you know if they have them as well. I am hoping to see them in grocery stores eventually as some stores do carry other O’Doughs products. Will keep an eye out and update the post if I see them!

    Excellent, thanks 🙂 I’m not a real fan of the Glutino bagels (which I’ve been eating instead of the Udis for precisely the reason you pointed out).

    Can’t wait to try these as pizza bagels 🙂 (if you haven’t done the pizza bagel thing yet, you haven’t lived! lol).

      Yeah I find the Glutino ones kind of gluey. Ooh will have to try the pizza thing!

        Yeah the pizza bagels are fantastic. Get two bagel halves, brush some sauce on them, sprinkle some shredded cheese, pop in the toaster oven and bake (not toast) for 4 minutes (I put mine at around 425 degrees), presto–instant delicious snack!

    I’ve seen them at one of the HRM Sobey’s (Dartmouth side for sure). Can’t remember which one. Might be in more of them, in the freezer section of the natural source. I don’t miss bagels often, but noticed them after enjoying a bag while home in Ontario earlier this summer!

    Thanks for this product review… I followed the link you posted to their website and there is a list of Winnipeg businesses that carry their products also. I’m going to look for this on my next grocery run.

      You’re welcome! They should be easier to find out West than here – good luck. 🙂
