BagelDid you know? Bagels have a long history that travels from the Jewish families of Poland in the 1600s to today’s breakfast menu.

Bagels made their way to the U.S. in the 1800s when a large Polish-Jewish population immigrated to America. The famous breakfast food thrived in New York City immediately, but it wasn’t until the mid-20th century that bagels became a favorite nationwide.

The most popular bagel is debated, depending on the region and time of day. Among the most common flavors are plain, cinnamon raisin, sesame and everything.

Nowadays, bagel bakeries across the country and the world put their own spin on the ring-shaped treat, from the viral rainbow bagel to the “Cragel”—a croissant-bagel hybrid. Visit a local café or bagel shop near you today to celebrate National Bagel Day!
