I was contacted by Bantam Bagels a few months back to see if I wanted to give them a try. I am a bagel lover, but try not to eat too many due to all the carbs and calories. These bagel balls, with various fillings, are a great way to enjoy a bite of a bagel, without eating the whole thing. I thought they were a great idea. The bagels were tasty, however, I thought the fillings could have been a bit more pronounce. They are also available on QVC which has a very large gourmet food inventory. Here is some more info on these little guys for you:
