When you catch a glimpse of the new Dempster’s Thin Bagels, the million dollar question that comes to mind is how many calories are actually in a regular bagel? Because while these new thin bagels only have 100 calories, they are significantly smaller than what we formerly knew as a bagel.
And we’re OK with that, because we’ll confess to a love-hate relationship with carbs. Smaller in diameter and in thickness, they are nonetheless very yummy and give us the bagel satisfaction we need along with a soft texture, and three varieties to choose from (White with Whole Grains, Multigrain with 100% Whole Grains and Cinnamon Raisin).
Googling to try to answer the afore-mentioned question was not conclusive—estimates ranged from 200 to 500 calories—but I do recall a nutritionist once telling me that eating a bagel was the same as eating five slices of bread! Dempster’s Thin Bagels are great for kids, too, as they offer a more appropriate portion size for them.
And that’s the ‘hole’ story.
