Bagels Forever Cinnamon-Raisin

HK$26 for four (326 grams), City'super Boiled in water and hearth-baked a la New York-style, these pre-sliced bagels have been made in Madison, Wisconsin, since 1973. Each bagel has 230 calories, one gram of fat, 47 grams of carbs and 10 grams of protein.

Verdict: crisp on the outside and fabulously soft and chewy on the inside. Could do with more raisins and cinnamon.

Thomas' Bagel Thins Plain

HK$68 for eight (369 grams), ThreeSixty If you're watching your waistline, these skinny pre-sliced bagels are perfect. Certified by the American Heart Association for being low in saturated fat and cholesterol, each bagel has just 110 calories, one gram of fat, 25 grams of carbs and four grams of protein.

Verdict: because it's so thin, it's more crust than anything, so it has more crunch than chew. But I like crusty bread, so I loved this.

Alvarado St Bakery Sprouted Wheat Onion and Poppyseed Bagels

HK$49 for six (567 grams), ThreeSixty These large bagels from Petaluma, California, are made with organic sprouted wheat, which is said to be richer in micronutrients than non-sprouted whole grains. Each bagel has 320 calories, two grams of fat, 64 grams of carbs and 11 grams of protein.

Verdict: smell heavenly in the oven, great with butter, and onion flavour doesn't overpower - but a bit dry.
