Now I get why they call themselves Einstein Bros. Someone at the bagel chain is a genius.
Last week, Einstein Bros Bagels introduced three limited-edition bagels, one being the Espresso Buzz Bagel, which is the color of pumpernickel and boasts 32 milligrams of caffeine. It also has 13 grams of protein.
With this brilliant hybrid, coffee and bagel can be had in one hand.
This “boosted” bagel is one of three that boast “incredibly delicious benefits.” There is also a Cherry-Chia Bagel with 300 grams of Omega-3 ALAs and a Savory Parm Bagel with protein, B vitamins and thiamine.
Has anyone tried the buzzy bagel? We’d love to find out what you think, so please write and let us know.
