Good news for bagel fans. New York Bakery Co have released two new bagel varieties, Fruit & Oat and Red Onion & Chive, as well as one Limited Edition bagel variety, Blueberry.
The blueberry bagels are especially exciting news, as it is surprisingly hard to find this flavour of bagel (Sainsbury's used to sell a delicious blueberry bagel but they were sadly discontinued). As soon as I opened the packet I could tell that these New York Bakery Co Blueberry bagels were not going to disappoint, the abundant smell of blueberries was immediately evident.
The overall flavour is just delicious, full of sweet fruitiness. They tasted amazing with some added blueberry jam on top! There was also quite a lot of fruit in each bagel. The blueberries were all different sizes, there were some whole large pieces of fruit and other smaller bits. I loved the the sweet burst of flavour from the larger blueberries! The only thing I don't like (and I don't often say this!) is that they are only a limited edition. I would love these to be added to the permanent range as I can see them being very popular.
The Fruit & Oat bagels are a mix of raisins, cranberries, sunflower seeds, all topped with oats. The fruit pieces were all succulent and sweet, but I couldn't particularly tell the raisins from the cranberries. Despite that, these bagels are extremely delicious, and if you like fruity bagels or oats then you will definitely enjoy these.

The only savoury option in this batch of new additions are these Red Onion & Chive bagels. They have visible bits of chive throughout but I couldn't detect too many pieces of onion, apart from a few small flecks.
