Popular bagel chain Einstein Bros. have recently joined the ranks with the launch of three new “craveable flavors across America”: a green chile bagel representing the Southwest, a hash brown bagel representing the South, and a mac & cheese bagel representing the Midwest.
While most weird bagel combinations — like beet bagels or kimchi cream cheese — completely gross me out, and while I am far from a nice Midwestern gal, I love comfort food and I am deeply intrigued by this cheesy, carb love child. After all, I love mac & cheese. And I love bagels. What could be bad about this mash-up, other than the fact that the closest location to me is at LaGuardia airport? Guess it’s summer road trip time.
