Flagels, and Bagels, and Breads! Oh My! Retirement Yenta loves her bagels, but what they can do to a girls hips or tummy is not pretty. Thus, your dear Yenta has taken to eating a scooped out bagel…until recently. Now your dear Yenta (when she can make it down to 91st street) bops over to the Bagel Basket and orders herself a yummy flagel. What’s a flagel, you ask? It’s a bagel, scooped out without the scoop out! It’s a flat bagel without all the bread and many fewer carbs per yummy, crusty, bready goodnesses. It’s fewer calories than a regular bagel too! A flagel makes a good Jewish maidela happy. Go ahead…indulge yourself…give it a try!
