Nicely timed with my weight loss challenge, I’m now participating in a BzzCampaign for Thomas’ Bagel Thins. Bagels have long been one of my favorite things to eat but they’re not the healthiest breakfast choice. In fact, despite them being something I love, I can’t remember the last time I had an actual bagel, for that very reason.
Bagel thins are exactly what they sound like – thin bagels. Each serving of Bagel Thins is 110 calories, which is about the same as one piece of toast.
They come in a few flavors, but I’ve only tried wheat so far. I’m not a cream cheese fan, so jam or butter is usually what I use as a topping. The first time I tried them I tried them with jam. It was actually really good.
The second time I had one I used butter (well, Smart Balance Light, actually, but I pretend it’s butter). I was a little put off that the butter wasn’t really melting on the bagel. I don’t like the taste of unmelted butter, or unmelted fake butter, in this case. I think that’s because it’s so thin – maybe the butter doesn’t have anywhere to go?
At the end of the day, I thought they were good and I don’t really feel bad about the 110 calories. Definitely a nice alternative to traditional bagels. For more info, check out Thomas’ Facebook page.
