Panera - Pumpkin Pie Bagel
We finally meet, Panera Pumpkin Pie bagel! It's not so much that this bagel was hard to find, but more that I wasn't really by one in the morning when I could try it out. I had my mom pick this up for me as I was en route to Seattle to visit them, which worked out well :o)
First off - if you're a fan of coffee or crumb cake, you will love the top of this bagel. It's got the same crumbly sweet topping sprinkled liberally on top. The rest of the bagel smelled like any other pumpkin baked good. This really didn't resemble so much a bagel as a round, dense, pumpkin crumb pastry haha. Which isn't to say it's bad, it's just incredibly sweet - but clearly, that shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. I'm glad I tried out this seasonal treat!
