Thank you to Warburtons who recently sent me a hamper full of their new Bagel Thins to try. These bagels are ideal for this time of year, as they have all the taste of a regular bagel, but are slightly smaller and thinner, with less calories too.
There are three varieties available; Plain Bagels, Sesame Bagels and Cinnamon & Raisin Bagels. The Plain variety has only 120 calories per bagel, whilst the Sesame and Cinnamon & Raisin bagels have 130 calories each.
Warburtons Thin Bagels - Plain: Even though the Warburtons Bagel Thins are hinner than regular bagels they are still a good size and are big enough to make a decent sized bagel sandwich. The Plain variety has a lovely soft texture which is great for toasting. I also found that because these are thinner, it makes them less chewy then regular bagels so they can also be easily enjoyed without toasting - which is great for packed lunches!
Warburtons Thin Bagels - Cinnamon & Raisin: These are just delicious and I have to admit I enjoy them most when just lightly toasted and spread with a little butter. Each bagel has a lovely sweetness from the juicy raisins with a wonderful cinnamon spice flavour. My eldest son is a big fan of hot cross buns and he really enjoyed the similar warming flavour in these delicious bagels too.
Warburtons Thin Bagels - Sesame: I don't often buy Sesame bagels but I actually really enjoyed these as an alternative to my usual bread for sandwiches. They're also delicious with cream cheese!
Overall I really enjoyed the Warburtons Thin Bagels range. I actually prefer this slightly smaller size, as I found them satisfying enough for a filling breakfast or lunch, without being too doughy or heavy.
Warburtons Thin Bagels are available at Asda, Tesco, Morrisons, and Sainsbury's - they're currently on offer for £1.00p a pack in Tesco.
