So, I thought that the “Case of the Massive Bagels” was site-specific to Boston, but apparently I was very wrong. Not only are the bagels growing in size in Mass, but also in New Jersey as well! After purchasing a dozen on Sunday, including Chocolate Chip, Everything, & Wheat, I realized each bagel was at least 3x the size of a normal bagel. Perhaps, the boost in prices of bagels is directly correlated to the significant increase in size? Whatever the deal may be, I enjoyed the older smaller versions and would like my extra $1.00 back as well please.
Be on the lookout for the attack of the big bagels, if you see more in states other than those listed, feel free to upload pictures & comment.
