Nancy's Petite Stuffed Bagels

Nancy's Petite Stuffed Bagels

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
NANCY’S Petite Stuffed Bagels are freshly baked bagels, made with fresh milk and real cream, ready to serve and enjoy in minutes! Inspired by Nancy Mueller for those who want to enjoy exceptional eating every day, each petite stuffed bagel combination is paired with distinct ingredients to create a robust line of flavors.

NANCY’S Petite Stuffed Bagels start with the same quality ingredients used in home cooking -- butter, flour, milk, eggs, fresh produce, herbs and high quality cream cheese and come in four delicious flavors!
I love bagels. One of my favorite Holiday memories is going to the Town Square Mall in Vestal, NY with my Mom and older sister and stopping into this coffee & bagel shop (I REALLY want to say it was ‘Bagel Town’, but this was about 20-25 years ago, so I can’t remember the name). They made the BEST bagels, and after that, anytime I went to Vestal, I made it a point to stop in there and get a few bagels to bring home.

Well, now that I live in Central NY, I obviously don’t get to Vestal anymore, not that it matters since it doesn’t seem to be there anymore. So, I’m relegated to the ones you can get in the stores. Our local Modern Market makes some delicious ‘French Toast’ bagels, but sometimes it’s a pain for me to spread the cream cheese, especially when my hands don’t want to cooperate with me. Plus, I tend to burn myself by accidentally touching the hot toaster when trying to get the bagels out!

So, Nancy’s Petite Stuffed Bagels are a godsend to my hands! No fighting with the cream cheese and no burnt and blistered hands or fingers! I was sent 3 of the 4 flavors to try and review...

^^The three flavors labeled^^

Pumpkin: Enjoy a fall flavor favorite with Nancy’s Petite Pumpkin Stuffed Bagels made with PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese blended with pumpkin puree in a pumpkin spice bagel (exclusively at Walmart)

Okay, so I am KNOWN for liking anything Pumpkin flavored, which is quite funny actually, since I wouldn’t TOUCH Pumpkin Pie as a child. I started liking the pumpkin flavor around 15 or 16, and I promptly kicked myself in the rump for not liking it sooner.
I find the warmer these are, the better they taste. I made some the morning after I received them, but by time I had made my coffee and sat down to eat, they were on the cooler side and tasted a little odd.
A few days later, Mama Melissa made me some of the pumpkin flavor when she was making herself some of the jalapeño flavor. Since she can walk faster than I do, I got to eat them when they were still warm and they tasted so much better than the bagels I warmed up.
TASTE: 9.5/10

Original: Keep it classic with Nancy’s Petite Stuffed Original Bagels made with PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese in a plain bagel

These were okay… not really my favorite, but not horrible either. My main problem with these is they tended to ‘flake’ – like the bread had gotten wet and was just sloughing off. I really didn’t taste too much of an actual flavor in these; I felt like they scrimped on the cream cheese filling in these.
TASTE: 6/10

Jalapeño: Create a pop of flavor excitement anytime with Nancy’s Petite Stuffed Jalapeño Bagels made with PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese blended with jalapeños in an asiago herb bagel

Whew-wee, these are HOT! I didn’t think these would be as hot as they are. I figured the cream cheese would ‘cool’ the jalapeño flavor down, but it didn’t. My acid reflux (and my mouth) were screaming at me every time I ate these, but I didn’t care. They were THAT good.  I ate about half and then gave the rest to Mama Melissa, since she doesn’t have acid reflux and they played nicely with her pre-diabetic diet.
TASTE: 8.5/10

All 3 of the bagels had very creamy fillings, although as I said above, I felt the Original was lacking in the filling department. But all 3 flavors I received for review were very soft and chewy.

The only problem I see disabled folks having is opening the inner bags. I had trouble opening them, even with scissors; I ended up needing Mama Melissa to open them for me. But as long as the disabled person can use a microwave safely, I can’t see any problem with these. (These CAN be made in a conventional oven or toaster oven as well, but since I was making only 3-6 at a time it wasn’t worth heating the conventional oven for that amount and we don't own a toaster oven here)

These are available at most national supermarkets, with the Pumpkin flavor being an exclusive to Walmart. These have a MSRP of $6.99 each, although Wal-mart sells the Pumpkin flavor for $5.98 a box.

FINAL THOUGHTS
Very yummy bagels, perfect for on-the-go mornings or an after-school snack for the kids!
