Colourful, carb loaded, psychedelic, delicious… these are not words you would typically see strung together, but the rainbow bagel encompass all of these and more.
The Bagel Store in NYC has been making the popular Rainbow Bagel for 20 years, but only until recently did it receive the praise it deserved. With lineups out the door and selling hundreds of these labour-intensive treats on a daily basis, there’s no doubt this trend is worth a try.
But you don’t need to take a trip to NYC to try this trend. Montreal has created its own psychedelic take on the traditional breakfast food at Dizz’s Bagel. These colourful, looped wonders are putting our sesame bagels to shame with their vibrant, chewy exterior, only to be heightened by big slab of sweet, birthday cake cream cheese.
The creation process is no doubt time-consuming due to the multiple layers of neon coloured dough that are piled one on top of another. They’re then cut and rolled so each individual rainbow bagel is slightly different than the next.
People have said it’s like eating cake for breakfast, which isn’t the worst way you could start your day. So watch out Skittles, with this bagel you really can “taste the rainbow.”
