They DO exist in France! What you ask? Bagels of course! In a country that loves bread so much, I am surprised there aren't more of these. Last week, as I was doing my grocery shopping, in between my stop for cheese and crepes, I was walking down an aisle when I saw right in front of me, like a mirage in the desert, a new exotic food being introduced to the masses. Bagels!
Mr. Bagels.
4 Small natural special breads.
Low in fat.
Recommended use:
Cut your bagel in two and put it in the toaster for 1 minute. Or put in a microwave for 20-40 seconds. Delicious sweet or salty or as a sandwich.

Of course, the next important question is cream cheese. The closest seems to be spreadable cheese, which isn't quite the same, but it will do. I have found Philly cream cheese in Italy, when we went to San Remo. Thought about buying some then, but didn't see the point as there were no bagels. Ahh...

As for the bagel quality, I must say they are rather dry. Oh how I miss Bodo's....

I've been able to find bagels in Picard ever since I moved here four years ago, but maybe it's not a nationwide thing. They're kinda small & fairly pricey, but it's worth it everyonce in a while! They also have really yummy sweetcorn & corn on the cob (plus a bunch of other great products).

I was really surprised to see English muffins here - the whole wheat ones are extremely tasty, especially toasted & spread with peanut butter!

I was just going to say the same thing -- the Picard bagels are pretty good.
