Viral videos make people go crazy and rainbow bagels were no exception to the rule. So, of course, when my boyfriend mentioned we were right around the corner from The Bagel Store in Brooklyn, we had to stop in and see what it was all about.
The first impression was good. The rainbow bagels were all lined up in the display along with their different, fun cream cheese flavors. The person taking orders came out from behind the counter to take the orders, which was a little odd. We ordered one rainbow bagel with Oreo cream cheese and one rainbow bagel with raspberry creme cheese. They looked great.
When we got around to eating them, though, the disappointment came. The bagels themselves were the problem. Instead of tasting like a normal bagel, it tasted much more like a gooey plastic. We ended up scrapping the cream cheese off the bagels and putting it on toast so we could try them separately – much more worth the trip. Just get it on a plain bagel!
