Best Bagel I Ever Ate. Not since the 1960s and beyond have I tasted a bagel of this quality. Great bagels were a thing of the past before Just Bagels created their master-piece in the Bronx. I love a good salted bagel fresh from the oven with butter or cream cheese better than just about anything in the whole world, along with a good cup of coffee or a glass of cold milk. These guys nailed the creation of their masterpiece bagel and i thank them from the bottom of my stomach. My life is once again worth living, I have something to look forward to every morning. Thank You Just bagels...

Subject: How long do the bagels last frozen?
I was fortunate enough to be able to try your plain bagel when I was traveling through NY last month. It was delicious.
I own a small cafe (7 Leaves Cafe) here in Southern California and would like to know if there's a local distributor here in the area where I can purchase your bagels. If not, if I were to order your bagels in large quantities, how long do they last frozen? Do they loose their deliciousness after a certain time?
You wouldn't happen to offer samples would you? I've only had the chance to try the plain, but would love to try your other varieties. If you can point me to a place here in Southern California who carries your bagel, that would be great as well.
Thank you so much for your time. Looking forward to hearing from you.
Best Regards, Denny

Good Morning Andy:
I love love Just Bagels and was so sad yesterday when I went over to the New York Diner to get my normal 2 dozen bagels and they were closed! I get a dozen poppy and a dozen asiago every week to 10 days. The owner suggested getting them frozen as they are already made, and that way I just pop them in the oven for a few minutes and they taste so fresh and like they were just made!! I just got off the phone with the Manager and they appear to be having problems, so we have to hope they reopen soon.
Just to let you know, I have started quite a few people on to your bagels. My sister just moved here to Orlando and she went with me last week to get herself a dozen, and
was also so dissapointed yesterday when we drove over to get more and they were closed. I was at my nail salon a few weeks ago talking about New York products with
someone who just moved here and was looking for a good New York bagel. I sent her over to the New York Diner, and she too is now hooked!
I will be heading over to Publix later this afternoon for some items, and will talk to my manager there about ordering them for their frozen food section, what a great idea!!
I will explain to him I don't want a bagel that I have to scrap out the inside of all the dough in order to put it in the toaster, which is what their frozen bagels are like, and
what most of the bagel places in town sell. You have to believe the great taste is due to that New York water, and if a buyer sampled one they would see for themselves.
I will also check out that location you gave me to get my bagel fix, it has now been 3 days and I need a Just Bagel, my lox and cream cheese is waiting.
Thank you, any other location ideas about where to buy them here, just let me know.

Subject: International Delivery
I was thrilled to find your bagels at Lotte Mart in Incheon, South Korea today. I picked up 6 packs, and my freezer is full. I haven't had a real bagel since my last visit home to NYC, last summer. The thing is that a lot of the time, when expats find a product that we love, it's discontinued or not restocked for months on end. Such is the life of an expat in Asia.
I checked your website, but after plugging in my shipping address (Korea was an option, so I was excited,) it said that you wouldn't ship here. I was just curious if it would be possible, and, if so, how much shipping would be for, say, 6 packs. I won't need them for a while yet, but, in case Lotte Mart (or any of the Lotte Marts in the near vicinity) don't have any, I'd like an option that's better than the crappy Costco bagels or <
If it isn't possible, or the shipping cost is prohibitive, of course I'd understand, but it can't hurt to try.

We are a new customer of yours and we are excited about your products. Our company name is eM-Ka Ventures, but we operate a coffee house called Arabica Coffee House in Chesterland, Ohio. Our distributor is InstantWhip in Stow, Ohio.
We had been buying our bagels from Sam's Club. They were Harlan Bakery. However, they stopped baking them and only recently started again after the unions shut down Hostess. In our search for a replacement, InstantWhip said your bagels were fantastic. We bought a few at a local market and agreed and immediately placed our first order.
We have been thinking about expanding our bagel offerings because customers have said there is no where in our town to get bagels. We do bagels, and make breakfast sandwiches with them. We do platters for teacher groups, etc... We'd like to do more cream cheeses than just plain, even offer our lunch sandwiches on bagels.
The reason for my email is to see if you have any type of marketing materials to offer such as posters, signs, papers for wrapping bagels, bags, etc... Obviously New York City Style bagels are famous and we'd like to take advantage of it.
If you have anything, or even some suggestions, please let me know. We look forward to working with your products.

I live in Olathe, Kansas, just south west of Kansas City. We had some multi grain with raisen bagels at a Barnes and Noble store up by the airport.
As you probably always hear, they are wonderful. Not gummy like other bagels.
I am interested in buying them locally, are they in grocery stores, for instance Hy Vee, available at COSCO or Sams Club? I hate to order them

I really appreciate the product that you give to me when I'm there. I'm half Jewish (and half Italian, a great combination!!) and I've been eating bagles for more than 50 years. You can imagine that I've had quite a few really good ones, and a whole lot of really bad product that only resembles the look, but taste like s---.
I generally prefer bagels with a crisp/crunchy light brown crust and a fluffy inside. Yours are not so crisp on the outside, but the tremendous flavor that your bagels have is completely over the top and is overwhelmingly superior. That also makes them easier to eat with nothing on (like butter, jelly, cream cheese), especially on the day they are baked. On day two, I prefer to toast them.
Everyone with whom I have shared your bagels is also very enthusiastic about them. When I left your office, I visited my computer/IT guy and gave him a few. He whipped out the Asiago-poppy one, took a bite, rolled his eyes, and was raving about the taste. I ate three of them the day I did the service while on the way home.
How's that for consumer feedback???!!

I wanted to purchase several packs online but it seems like you do not ship outside the NY area.
I was wondering if you could do an exception and mail them to me via Priority Mail. I assume full responsibility if they do not reach me fresh or on time. Shipping to PR is the same as within any other US State.
I am interested in purchasing four (4) bags of the 6 pack Multi-grain Energy bagels.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon,

t was a pleasure talking with you on the phone.
After visiting our children in New York and tasting your bagels, sesame bagels in particular, my ability to enjoy anyone else's bagel is ruined.
Please add my name to your "product wanted list" so that hopefully at some time, I will be able to purchase, or order your bagels to be delivered where I live.
Thanks you for your kindness on the telephone.

Twice now since I have finished the bagels you so generously sent me I've been to Starbucks on George Washington Highway in the Lincoln Mall Plaza in Lincoln, Rhode Island and they've been sold out. I've given up. I asked and one of the employees said they only put out 6. SIX bagels in a coffee shop? SIX of the most delicious bagels on earth...in a coffee shop???....they're probably gone before I wake up! I don't get it.
I'm sorry but your bagels are worthy of a heck a lot more than that. I understand that Starbucks doesn't want to end up tossing them but we're talking about PHENOMENAL bagels here.

Hi Cliff, I am sitting here this glorious Saturday morning eating one of the multigrain energy bagels you sent me and I savoring every single bite! Within the past 1-1/2 years I've lost 40 pounds the hard way.....through changing my diet and by going to the gym. I've got 20 pounds left to go and WILL do it. The beautiful part about eating this bagel....I DON'T FEEL GUILTY!!!!! I have incorporated it into my eating plan. I toast 1/2 (sometimes whole), put peanut butter on it, drink a large glass of water, go to the gym and feel great! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE start selling these bagels online soon. I only have a couple bagels left and really don't want to drive around town looking for them at Starbucks especially when I already know they'll most likely be sold out : ( I think if you market them as energy bagels or even make some in the form of a bar or rectangular shaped bagel (very appealing to women as they may not want to eat the entire bagel)....you would attract an even larger market and could make $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. They're absolutely delicious! Food for thought : )

FABULOUS bagels! My favorite has always been blueberry and yours, WOW, are absolutely wonderful! I opened the box, the smell..... I opened the bag and quickly cut into one to have everyone on staff sample one (I ate 1/2 of one & Bob ate a whole one). I actually had to lick the blueberry off my fingers! They ALL agreed they taste like BLUEBERRY! What did I expect though? I grew up in Ohio and we grew some wonderful blueberries and I only imagine NY is the same.
Bob is currently on his way to our customer with bagels in hand, along with some cream cheese samples I put together. Bob had actually purchased some of the blueberry from some of our local competition (Einstein Bagels & Panera) and agreed that yours blows theirs out of the water! (pun intended. water bagels. ;)
Also, can you confirm the minimum order? Is it possible to get less than 3 pallets? We keep our freezer at 0, will this be an optimal temp? What are the baking instructions for par-baked, 5 min @ 450-500?

I wanted to confirm the information that I got is correct that your company provides bagels to the Ashbrook Commons Starbucks in Ashburn, Virginia. I understand this request may be random but my wife loves the multigrain bagel at the Starbucks and the store now seems to always have run out when she goes there.
Her obsession for the multigrain bagel began shortly after our third child was born and I brought my wife a bagel and coffee at the hospital. The store was out of plain bagels (her normal order) and I went ahead and ordered her a multigrain bagel hoping she would be happy with it. Her initial disappointment at the lack of a plain bagel was reversed after she ate the multigrain bagel. She absolutely loved it. Since then, she only orders the multigrain bagel and is downtrodden if the store is out.
If you do indeed provide bagels for the Starbucks, I would love to order some to keep in stock at home, if possible.
Please let me know if you do indeed ship bagels to the Ashbrook Commons Starbucks and if so, how I can purchase some of your multigrain bagels.

yes or no, if you ship boxes of a dozen or two bagels/bialys/sticks to individuals. I have about six or eight recipients I would send to if you do small orders to non-commercial-customers. Overnight or two day would be fine.
If you do ship, I would fax the list to you and include charge card #, or would send a check if you prefer,
or even one of my 20 grandchildren.....I might not miss just one of 'em.
You are a truly savvy businessman, and the good will you have generated from me alone must be emanating in waves up there in Bronx, New Yawk. I don't know how to thank you.
Everyone I have bragged to about your bagels to, is waiting with baited breath to see if they are going to partake of the Bagels Ain't Bagels Unless They're JUST BAGELS which I told them I would hope to send them.

Dear Just Bagels: I had my first Starbucks experience last week. My friend insisted on taking me, we had coffee and she got a bagel, gave me half with cream cheese. I said, no, no, I don't want any, I had breakfast. She insisted. Well, I was hooked from that first bite! I kept breaking small pieces off the half she gave me, and finished it all, and with cream cheese. I prevailed upon Starbucks twice now to sell me your bagels from their freezer. Yes, the OH-YOU kosher certification made it perfect, and all of my family can enjoy Just Bagels. My husband was third generation in a hand-operation bakery here in Columbus, Ohio, that made the best cissel rye, pumpernickel and BAGELS and more that I have ever had anywhere. When he closed the bakery in 1970 due to health problems and trouble getting the European bakers, we kept one bagel in the freezer for a souvenir. When I saw your Just Bagels and tasted it, it was like a revelation! It is the first time I have ever had a bagel that approaches the old Schwartz Bakery bagel of yore. The size, the beautiful golden, glossy top crust, and the soft, tasty innards........to me, Just Bagels is what a bagel SHOULD BE. And you don't have to break your jaw chewing...... They are PERFECT. I am very excited about "discovering" them. I'd like to send them to my family in Denver, Baltimore and Teaneck NJ, and want to know if you ship them. I hope so. If not, I will have to prevail upon my local Starbucks in Bexley to please order several dozen for me to pick up. You have the right formula, I will spread the word about you here in Columbus, Ohio, so if you see business booming here, you'll know I'm on the Just Bagels Publicity Tour ! All best wishes, thanks for your superior, delicious bagels. Esther

Hi, I was in the states for a very short business trip, and I grabbed a Bagel just before I flew back home. It was one of yours and I thought it was the best bagel ever! I was wondering if you sell to Canadian customers or if you could ship a small quantity directly to me. I would pay the shipping, (we could mark the box as samples or gift to avoid duties problems). I would like to have a few 6 packs (I guess it is packs of 6 bagels??? Could I get packs of 6). Maybe 3 of each; Sesame, Plain, Energy/Multigrain, Sun Dried Tomato, Blueberry, Whole wheat, Cinnamon Raisin, Poppy, Pumpernickel.
I will froze it and take it out the freezer when I need some. I think it’s the best way for me to have good bagels. Unfortunately, my freezer would not contain more than these packs. I hope you can arrange some shipment for me. I really want to have your bagels. I can’t find any Bagels as good as yours here. By the way, I’m in the greater Montreal area, Canada.

The last time I had a decent bagel was on a business trip to CT six years ago. It was at an airport shop, so it may have beenone of yours. Prior to that, I had met a man here in St Cloud MN who have the only bagel shop. Tons of business because they were made like Just Bagels makes 'em! He did use a small bagel making machine at times, but he showed me the proofing, boiling, and baking on the cornstarch processes. From him I first learned the term "bread with a hole it". They he was taken out of business when a Panera Bread opened across the highway. Oh sure, we have a few frachised bagel restaurants in Minnesota, but seeing the Food Network segment on Just Bagels reminded me that a NY area bagel can't be duplicated. Unfortunately, in the past few years, I've found I have MS and I'm not doing well enough for leisure travel any longer.And by this time in the letter I am typing with Justa Couple Fingers!

I'm so pleased that we have your bagels here in the cafeteria at SUNY-Downstate- they are some of the best bagels I've had, and the fact that they're kosher makes it very convenient for guys like me.
Keep up the great baking!

Subj: No "Just Bagels" in Hawaii :
Aloha Cliff! I just spoke with you this morning. I have to say that I really enjoyed eating the 2 lonely bagels my girlfriend left at my home. She acquired the bagels from a United Airlines flight to Hawaii from San Francisco. I hope to see your bagels on our store shelves here in Hawaii. In the meantime however, I would be blessed to be able to purchase some from you. If this becomes a possibility, please let me know ! ! !

Subj: Florida needs bagels!
We need GOOD bagels in Spring Hill. I'm from Howard Beach, N.Y.11414 and retired to Spring Hill, Florida and there are NO Good BAGEL stores here. Would you consider shipping to my home????

I tried your product at the Orlando food show and thought they were outstanding. I would like some samples for my Director and Director of Operations to try. We run dining services at the University of Central Florida. We have three retail outlets that are interested in selling a quality bagel. Please get back to me about this inquiry. Thank you.

Hey Cliff!!!! My mom just phoned you to inquire as to where she can buy your bagels in bulk, so on her behalf and because she doesn't have email I thought I would write to you!!! I was impressed by her steps and means to go about asking how to get more of your bagels!!!! Asking the barista, getting a phone number and following through by calling a long distance number to get MORE info!!! We are in Seattle and of course like we love our coffee and BAGELS!!! Thanks for taking the time to chat w/my mom.

I go to the Bronx just to get just bagels. I used to bring them back to DC with me when I was in school because my friends liked them so much. The bagels are delicious and addicting. Sandwiches are good but I always get a classic bagel with cream cheese

I'm an old fashion traveling salesman from NY that loves his morning bagel with a smear. I always wondered if there were any national bagel specialty bakery/coffee shop chains that serve what a bagel afficianado would consider a real New York bagel, or are such shops confined to ethnic mom-and-pop operations? Well I found one and it's Starbucks!

I love bagels, but I use to agree with the prevailing notion that it's hard to get a good one outside of New York. What distinguishes a New York bagel from the wannabes? The ingredients? Methods of preparation? The skills and ethnic background of the bakers (i.e., must they have trained under Jewish mothers who made them for their families back in the old country? well whatever the reason I found the best bagel I ever tasted in Florida and it's made by Just Bagels.

Taster's Choice panelists claimed to be open-minded about store-bought bagels. They prefer the morning offering at the local bagel shop, as do I, but they will reach for a substitute in a pinch. The only rule: Bagels have to be really fresh to be good.
We sampled 10 bagels from local grocery stores - two were from the freezer section and warmed in the oven or microwave as directed by the manufacturer.
Judges liked Ray's frozen bagels $2.50 for a bag of six from Publix. They gave these 70 out of a possible 100 points. Three of the four panelists said they would buy the Ray's brand.
Panelists liked the chewy texture of the bagels, the slightly sweet taste and the light brown color.
"They are better than a regular bagel," said one.
Another judge said, "These look like they came right out of the oven fresh."
Only one judge complained that the Ray's bagels weren't presliced.

If it's bagels you want, satisfactory taste is in store
Just Bagels Deli
They arent open as often as i hoped but man its worth it. These Bagels are so fresh and rich that you could eat 3 and wish your stomach could fit one more. They arent a store or deli either as it says here. It's more like a stand inside a store. You tell the worker what you want and you get it freshly made in a matter of minutes. Magnicifo! is one word not to small to describe what there bagels taste like.

I'm from Queens New York and there is just a different taste and quality to a NY bagel. It's very hard to describe. I went to CA and visited a place which touts "New York bagels" but they sure didn't taste anything like real NY bagels. I think NY bagels have a unique taste, distinctive and strong. It *could* be the water -- I've heard that NY pizza is the same way -- it's very hard to find decent NY pizza anywhere but NY. After 5 years of searching I finally found one place that sells what I'm looking for, bagels made by Just bagels in NY. I guess their shipped frozen, who cares, the best I ever had.

Ok, maybe I'm not qualified to review bagels, but I feel like I am obligated to review Just Bagels My brother and everyone in Reading are obsessed with the ones I bring them a few times a year. Reason #1: When I say everyone back home loves these bagels, I am not lying, they can't get enough of them, when I do come home their hands are out, god forbid I didn't have any with me. Reason #2: The NY bagel claim is true and the last thing I want to do is open up this debate. I'm sure Just Bagels will acknowledge that it does make New York bagels the old fashion way, just like they claim to do.
At some places these bagels are freshly made in front of the customers in huge ovens. But going on the testimonials of others who rave about their bagels, I'm going to boldly state that Just Bagels are probably the best around Then again, what do I know, I just eat them and love them.

Ever have one of those days when you're hungry, but nothing really appeals to you? So you sit around listless, waiting for divine inspiration, as your stomach growls louder and louder... Fortunately, for situations like these, I can always be enticed to eat a bagel by Just Bagels. Just Bagels is a company out of the Bronx, and the Bronx is exactly where you'd expect folks who know how to make a good bagel. The company ships the bagels frozen to grocers and restaurants alike who then thaw them and put them out with the daily bakery. I buy my four-pack of Just Bagels at the Jenifer St. Market for $2.99. They come in a variety of flavors, such as egg, everything, cinnamon and raisin, blueberry, sesame, and whole wheat, but I tend to go for the plain bagels, which I always eat with peanut butter. Indie Coffee on Regent St. also sells the tasty circular goodness. I suppose other places around town do, too, but I haven't taken a survey. Why do I like Just Bagels? Well, because they're your basic hearty bagel, and not drizzled in this or that nonsense. They also taste excellent plain and untoasted, which is something that can not be said for many bagels that will remain nameless. I also like eating stuff that makes me feel like a "tough guy," and how could you feel like anything but a "tough guy" eating a bagel from the Bronx? Question for bagel eaters out there. What's with the frosting?!!! I can't believe how many people I've witnessed applying cream cheese in proportions so that you'd think they there were frosting a cake. That's a heck of a lot of extra fat and calories folks, and it still tastes pretty good with only a smidge. Just saying.

Great bagels, always very fresh, makes the best bagel sandwiches, my particular favorite is the Chix salad sandwich.

I just experienced the following epiphany (with the help of a knowledgeable friend): could the alleged (!) superiority of the New York bagel have something to do with kosher methods/ingredients? The best bagel I ever had was made by Just Bagels and that is a Kosher bagel.

I grew up in NYC, the bagel capital of the world. More to the point, I grew up in Brooklyn, the bagel capital of NY. In fact, I lived not far from Kings Highway which is well known as -- you guessed it -- the bagel capital of Brooklyn. The odd thing is, now that I live upstate, I have found a bagel every bit as good as the ones I grew up with. It's made by Just Bagels and might even be better the ones I grew up eating.
I just tasted your multi-grain bagels at a coffee shop in Wilmington, Delaware, and wanted to see if it is possible to order directly from you. The shop had 4 and by the time I left I had purchased all of them. By far your bagels are the absolute best I have ever eaten. Please let me know if it is possible to order from you. Thank you.
Thanks for sending me this! keep them coming!!!!!!!! The multigrain is a damn good bagel. The new & improved cinnamon raisin is good too. Irene
just bagels are geat bagels, even makes good sandwiches that works with anything you prefer to put on them, good comfort food, I can't stop eating them, I'm hooked.
