I honestly tried to like these but I didn't. They are very dry and honestly to thin for my liking. These would be good if you were doing a low carb diet. But I even thought the taste was off. My husband and kids agreed that these are way too dry. I guess we like chewy bagels.
I loved these bagel thins. I've always thought bagels we're just too much bread and filled me up too fast. These were awesome. I wish there were more flavors than plain and everything. Blueberry would be amazing in these. Not too chewy and great taste. I will definitely be buying again. Great great product.
Very unequal size between halfs.
It's a shame that they can't maintain a even slice size between half's which makes toasting or heating evenly impossible.
Thomas' Bagel Thins: Great For A Low-Carb Diet
I love toasted bagels but trying to use them to make a sandwich makes it hard to eat; when I saw the Bagel Thins at the store I knew that they would be the perfect pick for a sandwich but if you are going to toast them you need to turn down the browning time or the outside of the bagel will get scorched. You can toast them in the toaster or in a toaster oven; you can also use these to make pizza bagels since they are thinner than a regular bagel.
I tried the whole wheat ones and didn't like them but the regular plain Bagel Thins are great; I keep them refrigerated to keep them fresh but that's not a necessity. They are pre-split so there's no need to cut them; each bagel has 110 calories, 25 grams of carbohydrates (4 are dietary fiber) and 4 grams of protein. This is a great way for those who are doing a low carbohydrate diet to have a bread selection without having to sacrifice taste.
My grocery store usually only has the eight count packs; there are larger packages available but I have only seen them at price clubs like Costco. They are about the same price as a regular pack of bagels but you have to check the bag for the "best by" date if you aren't going to be eating one a day. You can freeze them but when I've done that they've always seemed a little harder when I have defrosted them.
Great for those dieting
Bagel thins are a wonderful invention that allows one to enjoy the comforts of a bagel while still cutting calories out of their diet. Because the middle portion and thickness of the bagel is cut out, much of the unnecessary bread is removed. A wonderful thing.
Good replacement for an actual bagel.
These taste great, but are more like round bread.. Not exactly the best choice if you are craving an actual bagel. But its not bad. For someone who trys to stay healthy and watch my weight bagels arent really the healthiest option. But buying these in whole wheat was great. They were good and filling when I topped them with jelly, peanut butter, eggs, etc. Once you get used to these and you try to eat a normal bagel for once you probably wont be able to finish bc it will be too much. But they taste good so they arent all that bad. I would buy again.
Perfect breakfast food!
I've never been a breakfast person but these bagels are awesome. A regular bagel is too much. These are perfect and filling. They taste great and they only have 110 calories. These are an easy way to eat something quick before work or on the way. I'll definitely continue buying these!
Very tasty, but not filling enough to have just one
I am trying not to eat any bagels or bread products to cut carbohydrates to lose weight. But I like most bagels, and I love cinnamon raisin bagels. Cinnamon raising bagels are among my favorite desserts to cheat on when I fall off the diet. The cinnamon raisin Thomas Bagel Thins were as tasty as the normal, bigger size cinnamon raisin bagels from bagel shops with fewer calories. However, one bagel thin is not as filling as a big bagel. If I had enough self restraint to eat just one, it would not blow my diet to eat these for dessert occasionally, but I could not stop at just one. These bagels still have too many carbs relative to protein for me to eat them regularly. I wish these were higher in protein and lower in carbs, like the high protein low carb breads that are available.

This is not a bagel!
I love bagels for their texture and how dense they are. Since eating lots of them isn't good for me or my waist I decided to try Thomas Bagel Thins. I was so happy to finally let myself eat a bagel again, and was very disappointed when I took my first bit. These remind me of Arnold sandwich thins and are nothing like a bagel. I won't be buying them again if I want a bagel that is for sure. As a thin sandwich bread they are good, but the whole in the middle is not great for a sandwich and there are other more affordable options. My conclusion is these are a poor excuse for a bagel and not worth the cost.
The flavor is there, but the thick, bready, chewiness is not
I realize these are meant to be a replacement for the typical high-calorie, thick, chewy bagel - and the taste is there, but the bagel is missing. That is why I give them 3 stars. I don't really think of them as a bagel. A bagel is meant to be large, thick, bread that is chewy on the inside, and crusty on the outside. And when you bite into it and you have to pull hard to break away. These are thin, and get too crisp when you toast them. So, to me the texture of a bagel is lacking.
However, they taste very much like a bagel. When you are dieting, you tend to make do and settle for lesser quality, and the taste is what really matters. With that said, the taste is dead on to a bagel, and these are perfect substitutes.
I have found they are perfect for quick, easy lunches. I have used them for sandwiches, and they make great pizzas when topped with sauce, meats, vegies, cheese and then place them in the toaster oven! But, they are not that much different than the round sandwich thins that are everywhere lately.
I am a BzzAgent, and I get to try and share new products with friends and family as long as I spread my opinions and report back my reviews. I received coupons to allow me to get these free at my grocery store through BzzAgent, however, I have tried them prior. I plan on using my coupon to purchase some of these and some real bagels and place them in the break room at work. My theory is that the real bagels will get scarfed up first... but we shall see. Maybe the dieters and the curiosity of others will win out? I'll report the results soon!
