Review: Kinnikinnick Soft Bagels

It was just a few weeks ago that I found out and wrote a blog post about the brand new Kinnikinnick Soft Bagels.  I checked a few local stores, but was not able to find the bagels in stock yet.  The gluten-free gods must have smiled down on me because I received samples of the new bagels earlier this week.

I didn’t waste any time sampling these babies!  I had planned on a veggie burger for a fast dinner, so the plain bagel became my vehicle!

Look at that – so bagel-y!  The outside has crisper “skin” and the inside is nice and chewy, just like a bagel should be! Breakfast was a given – blueberry bagel and cream cheese.  Before I show you my breakfast, check out the bagel after I toasted it, before I spread it with cream cheese, it is purple from all of the blueberries!

Seriously delicious!  I do believe that this is the first gluten-free blueberry bagel I have tried and it was spectacular!  The bagel was thick, soft and chewy and had a wonderful blueberry flavor.  Simply heaven!  Last, but not least, the Cinnamon Raisin bagel.  It was equally as impressive and tasty smeared with butter and a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar.  What a nice treat! 

In addition to being gluten-free, these bagels are also vegan, dairy- and nut-free.  The bagels come 4 to a package and are priced at $5.99/package.  They are currently available on the Kinnikinnick website and will be shipping to their distributors over the next few weeks.  Remember that Kinnikinnick offers flat rate shipping for $10, so make sure to stock up on your favorites.

Have you tried the new Kinnikinnick Soft Bagels?

  1. Celiac daughter gave these a big thumbs-up. She loves them toasted, but says they’re also great — and 100 per cent “bagel-y” — straight from the bag. She rates them much higher than Udi or Glutino, our previous choices. Kinnikinnick has raised the bar with all of its soft breads, buns and — now — bagels.
