Enjoy “Right-Size” Thomas Bagel Thins

Updated on April 27, 2011

Did you give up enjoying bagels because you were trying to cut calories? While it’s true that full-size bagels have quite a few calories – especially the super-size ones available in many delis and coffee shops – that’s not the only available option. If you’ve been wishing that there was a way to enjoy terrific bagel taste without all of the calories, you’ll be excited to discover Thomas® Bagel Thins.

What Are Thomas Bagel Thins?

The name given to Thomas Bagel Thins is an apt description. Thomas Bagel Thins are, quite simply, thin bagels. They are soft, tasty, round and have a hole in the middle – just like full-size bagels – but they’re thinner. The diameter is the same size as a traditional bagel, but they are about half as thick.

Because Thomas Bagel Thins are smaller than traditional bagels, they contain less dough. Because they have les dough, they have significantly fewer calories than their full-size counterparts.

As a matter of fact, each one has only 110 calories. This means that can enjoy a Bagel Thin for about the same number of calories you could expect from a standard serving of toast. So, if you’ve been denying yourself bagels as a way of saving calories, you don’t have to do so anymore!

Thomas Bagel Thins Varieties

Thomas Bagel Thins are available in four flavor varieties. Each variety is low in fat and is recognized as a good source of dietary fiber. Flavor selections include:

  • 100% Whole Wheat Bagel Thins
  • Cinnamon Raisin Bagel Thins
  • Everything Bagel Thins
  • Plain Bagel Thins

Serving Your Bagel Thins

Thomas Bagel thins taste great straight out of the package or toasted. They can be served as a side dish for a full breakfast alongside dishes like scrambled eggs, hash browns, grits, bacon and more. They are also fine served on their own for a light meal.

Thomas Bagel Thins taste great plain, but are even better when they are served with your favorite toppings. A few topping suggestions you may want to try include:

  • Almond Butter
  • Butter
  • Chicken salad
  • Cream cheese (plain or flavored)
  • Jam
  • Jelly
  • Nutella
  • Peanut Butter

Finding Thomas Bagel Thins

If you’re ready to try Thomas Bagel Thins for yourself, you won’t have to look very far to find them. They are available at grocery stores and mass merchandise retailers (including Target and Walmart) throughout the United States.

Look for them in the packaged bread aisle. They are available in bags that contain eight pre-sliced bagels.
