Finally! The bagel gets some respect!
That’s right. Apple has finally seen fit to upgrade what was clearly an inferior emoji, the new emoji has a doughier consistency and is accompanied by a modest layer of cream cheese. So a wrong has been righted – to a degree.
This new emoji almost looks like a real bagel, and it is a far cry from the previous image that looked like the kind of thing that comes in a plastic bag off the shelf of a grocery store. But it is only a first step.
We who get our fresh, delicious bagels at the Bagel Bakery know this new version is still inferior. It looks nothing like a genuine Bagel Bakery bagel.
For those seeking full respect for the bagel, this is just step one in an ongoing campaign. The bagel has gotten some respect but those of us who are true bagel aficionados, we know it’s not enough.
