Did You Know – Bagels
Whenever I want to eat a sliced bagel from the store, I get so frustrated that I have to finish slicing it before I can spread butter or cream cheese on it.
Do you know why they leave the bagels only partially sliced?
According to WBZ News Radio, “The reason why they’re not cut all the way through is because the bagels are propelled through a spinning blade and they’re spit out at a very high velocity, and if they’re cut all the way through- the tops and the bottoms would separate,” Trust said.

Thank you Ned!
I’d rather have them uncut
So do you cut your own or eat them without butter or cream cheese?
I cut my own and eat them with spiced avocado and smoked salmon. No cream cheese or butter required.
You are so healthy!!!!! Lol
Being a native of The Bronx, I know a good bagel when I see one. I do prefer to slice it myself, but if it is pre-sliced, you’re right. It is never sliced all the way through. That is also true of Italian bread in restaurants and even some bakeries. You always have to break off part of it. Maybe that’s what makes it more personal. There’s always just enough if your own labor so that you can really call it your own. ( I know. I need therapy.) 😄😄
Hahaha Now I want fresh Italian bread!
Great post. I learned something new Today. Thank you 💛💛
You’re welcome, It was new for me too. Now I won’t get frustrated cutting it the rest of the way. Lol
Well, isn’t that be interesting. 🙂

Thank you Mitzy!
I once went to a Jewish wedding of a pal from work .Bagles they had in platefuls I had never bothered with them ever but ate four that day .Fresh it is totally different taste
How in the world did you eat four? Lol Years ago I worked for a donut place and we steam the bagels and yes, fresh is amazing!
Well, that answer that question! Thanks for sharing.
Right, who knew! I thought it was fascinating though. You’re welcome Karla!
Thank you Ultra. 💕
We can learn a lot from a 🥯🌱
Especially how good they are to eat! 😉
Hahaha Have a great weekend Linda.
See, I learn something new every day! it’s the same with umbilical cords. Hugs, C
Well that is why you are so smart! 🥰
I didn’t know that and that does make sense, but I have tried to pry them apart and end up with one slice with extra bread and other slice is skinny – annoying!
I am appreciating another of your great tips!
Thank you they are so fun!
Very interesting! Can you imagine the chaos when the tops and bottoms of the bagels fly all over the place … I solemnly forgive the company for not cutting it all the way through!
I know right!!!!
Aha! So THAT’S why! I always wondered why bagels were never sliced all the way through.
Now that I know I won’t get so irritated with them. Lol
Good info about my favorite breakfast item, Diane–thanks!
You’re welcome, I thought it was very interesting.
Okay that was pretty cool to find out why bagels are only partially sliced!
I thought so too, now it won’t irritate me as much. 🤣
