Kroger Everything Bagels

I spent New Years in Columbus, Ohio with my girlfriend's family. It was a good time and a great way to start 2012. One of our nightly activities was eating bagels and ice cream at midnight. Admittedly, the ice cream consumption was mostly by me, but everyone ate bagels. It was decadent and fun! While eating the bagels and ice cream we watched The Golden Girls, Law & Order and tons of the I.D. Channel.


I became addicted to bagels and now it's all I ever think about. A bagel with Earth Balance or a bagel with Tofutti Cream Cheese. Or shoot, even a plain toasted bagel. Everything Bagels from Kroger was the bagel of choice. They were amazing toasted and had great flavor. Plenty of poppy seeds and dried onion. I think we went through three bags!


And the coolest part about these bagels is that they say Vegan right on the package. How awesome is that! I wish every grocery store in America would start labeling like this. Maybe in 5 to 10 years? I hope soon.

  3. Kroger has a GREAT vegan selection. When I lived in rural Indiana (2007 - 2010) I depended on Kroger for 95% of my vegan needs. Their store-brand organic soymilk is delicious in my opinion... I have been drinking it almost exclusively since 2006ish?? (Seriously, three cartons in the fridge right now.) Some items can get pricey in certain areas - I've seen 4 sticks of Earth Balance for $5.99, omg! - but for the most part they're a value-oriented place to shop. Now that I'm back in Atlanta with our Sevananda co-op and Whole Foods, I depend on Kroger slightly less but still go weekly. Their Private Selection line of organics is great quality, too. And yes, I've been chowing down on those crispy Everything bagels for years!! At $2.50 per bag and with something like 9-11 grams of protein per bagel, they're kind of a super deal. And delicious, too!

  4. We've got a grocery store chain, Wegman's, who clearly labels their store brands that are vegan. I love them for it.

  5. Are these fresh or refrigerated? I haven't seen these at my local Kroger but will be looking closer! Kroger does a pretty good job of labeling items. If you abstain from honey, though, be aware that I have seen Kroger items labeled as vegan that do contain honey.

  8. They must be using a non-animal L-cysteine. Usually it is from an animal in the form or duck feathers or something like that. Wonder what their source is for the bagels?
