Franz Family Bakeries has teamed up with Tillamook to create a new line of bagels called New York Bagel Boys, in flavors like Pizza, Tillamook Cheese (YUM) and French Toast. As with everything in the Franz line, they are great quality and fresh. And who in the world wouldn’t love a giant bagel with melted Tillamook cheese on top? I’m not sure I want to be their friend.
Franz sent me an email and asked if they could send me some bagels to taste and try. We don’t eat much bread or grains at all, but if I’m going to eat it, it’s going to be a ginormous bagel with a slab of Tillamook cheese on it. My response? Resounding yes. My college-aged brother moved in with us recently and he almost passed out when I told him his job this week was to review bagels. His response? My job is to eat? Done.
These bagels are ridiculous. The flavors are very true and strong, not just a hint of cinnamon or cheese, but a full-on slap in the face (or mouth). Honestly, I haven’t even used butter or cream cheese on them. The flavors totally speak for themselves and they are super soft and fresh, right out of the bag.
To spread the word about their bagels, Franz is running the “Show Us How You Bagel” contest. Upload a digital photo to the Franz Facebook page showing the creative ways you enjoy your bagels. The photo that receives the most votes will win a year’s supply of Franz fresh bakery bread! The photo contest is open to residents of Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah and California (north of Chico).
