Caffeinated Bagels Are Now A Thing

Do you love coffee? And bagels? Now you can have the best of both worlds with the 'Espresso Buzz Bagel.' That’s right, now you’ll be able to chew your caffeine every morning as courtesy of Einstein Bros Bagels, creators of this wonder. The product guarantees part of the usual energy boost as each pastry contains 32 caffeine’s milligrams, a third of what an average 8-ounce cup of coffee contains. It also has 13 grams of protein, derived from cocoa plus bacon. Which is...not a combination we'd normally stick together, but ok.

The Espresso Buzz Bagel is also said to be much healthier than the average donut or any McDonald’s breakfast menus, with three grams of sugar and 2.5 grams of fat, making it a total of 230 calories. For those who are caffeine sensitive, Espresso Buzz bagel has also launched other 'busted bagels' including a Cherry Chia bagel, a vegan option that contains Omega 3 rich chia seeds and pats and has 12 grams of protein, plus the Savory Parm bagel, which contains 13 grams of protein and has three different kind of cheeses.

Coffee consumption is growing among the population of 19 to 34-year olds. Kerry Coyne, vice president of Einstein’s bros understands this and explained the product's appeal: “We have watched the coffee category expand and adapt as Millennials converted to coffee drinkers, attracted by the smoother flavour and artisanal characteristics and third- and fourth-wave coffee.

'We knew our culinary team could deliver that same premium, hand-crafted sensory experience with the beloved category hero of espresso in our best-in-class, fresh-baked bagel.

Sadly(?) these bagel wonders are only available in U.S at the moment. So, if you’re currently in the States make sure to grab your Espresso Bagel, and if not you might have to get your caffeine fix on the side for now. Soz.
