LOL, that's a common term. An "everything" bagel has everything on it--onions, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, etc.

Everyone should take at least one trip to the NYC metro area to have a real bagel at some point in their lives. Nice and hot, fresh from the oven.

Born and raised in Connecticut, and I think Dunkin Donuts is crap. Their coffee is watered down, their bagels are inedible, eggs are microwaved, and donuts dry and flaky. Also, the times I have gone, the same order is never consistent.

Gas station coffee > Dunkin Donuts.

Yeah, they sell everything bagels in bags at most grocery stores, so I would be a little surprised at the thought that someone hasn't heard of that.

We have bagel shops that sell real bagels in other parts of the country too. I know people say that they are different in NYC (because of the water or something) but I haven't noticed any real difference in a hot fresh bagel in NYC as opposed to one in Chicago or L.A.

Probably not--I don't buy that special water thing. I'm just saying there's a difference between a hot fresh handmade bagel anywhere and something that comes in a package at the supermarket and/or is made somewhere and shipped somewhere else.

Krispy Kreme's donuts seem like they've gone downhill in the past few years, don't they? Used to be among my favorites.

That, exactly. I don't drink coffee, but I could always count on DD (drive through) when I had to be somewhere early in the morning, and didn't have time to make a real breakfast. I could grab a quick bagel and a cup of tea and be on my way. No, the bagels aren't the best, but they're good enough when you're hungry . I grew up in New England where they were on practically every street corner, so the convenience is what I really miss. I'm excited that they're coming back to Denver, but sadly, I don't live close enough to the city for them to be convenient for me.
