How to Properly Store Bagels

Congratulations – you’ve purchased our Bag O’ Bagels, and you have 13 fresh bagels to enjoy. Our bagels are hard to resist, but occasionally there are some to spare. How do you keep these bagels in tip-top shape to be enjoyed later? Follow our advice:


It can be tempting to put the extra bagels in the fridge – stop! These will cause them to dry out quickly. Instead, we recommend storing the bagels in a plastic bag at room temperature. Be sure to squeeze as much air out of the bag as possible. This method can store bagels for up to five days. But, be careful. Putting warm bagels in a plastic bag can cause them to be soggy. Nobody likes a soggy bagel.


Another option is to freeze your bagels. This is a great option if you want to enjoy your Bag O’ Bagels at a slower pace, as they will keep for about 3-4 months in the freezer. To eat, simply pop the pre-sliced frozen bagel into the toaster – voila—you’ll have a quick, tasty breakfast.


Don’t let the fear of stale bagels prevent you from buying our bagels in bulk. With these easy tips, you can have a fresh-tasting Bagel Bakery Bagel anytime. Your taste buds will thank you.


Five Fun Facts About Bagels


We love bagels. And we bet you do, too. So, sink your teeth into these fun facts to learn even more about our favorite food.


  1. The earliest known mention of a bagel originates in Poland back in the early 1600s. However, it wasn’t until the 1960s until the bagel became popular in America.
  2. Due to its multi-step process, bagel production used to be a four-person job. In an assembly line, two men would shape the bagel dough, then a man boiled the bagels (the kettleman). Finally, the last man would be in charge of the oven.
  3. Americans sure do love bagels — nearly 61% of surveyed Americans reported to eat a bagel at least twice a week for their breakfast.
  4. The most popular bagel flavor is plain, while sesame takes second place.
  5. National Bagel Day is celebrated on Feb. 9. But, we think every day is bagel day. Who needs an excuse to eat a bagel?
