Thomas' Bagel Thins Review & Give-a-way...



Eating healthy is so hard sometimes and eating a good healthy breakfast is very important for my family. A lot of times we are in a hurry in the mornings and that makes it even harder to grab something good for us. Well we were recently able to try Thomas' Bagel Thins which is a very healthy option in the morning or any time of day for that matter.


The Thomas' brand of breakfast breads has been around since the late 1800's when they introduced the original "nooks & crannies" English Muffin. Over the years they have expanded their varieties of English Muffin and brought us Swirl & Toasting breads, Bagels, Mini Bagels and more. Now Thomas' is introducing the first "trim" bagel option: Thomas' Bagel Thins.

Thomas' Bagel Thins come in 4 varieties- plain, 100% whole wheat, cinnamon raisin & everything. Each Bagel Thin has only 110 calories, is low in fat and an excellent source of fiber (4-5 gms/bagel thin) with all the same taste as those huge bagels we are used to!


We received two bags of these to try out. We received the 100% Whole Wheat and the Cinnamon Raisin Bagel Thins. I love bagels but they are just way to big and have to many calories for me! So to have a bagel with all of the same taste and a lot thinner, healthier version with only 110 calories really excited me!


After trying these bagel thins I am in love with them! They are the perfect size for breakfast. My kids love them and I love that they are not too thick for them like regular bagels that are hard to chew. They toast really well and taste just as good as a regular bagel! We will definitely be purchasing more of these!!


I love that the Thomas' site has tons of nutritious recipes and with the bagel thins you can use them to make yummy bagel sandwiches which my kids are loving! It's a really different idea that I had never thought of doing before but they are so easy to make and are really really good. My kids love bagel thin pizza! We just top the bagel thins with pizza sauce, cheese and whatever toppings they like, if you can believe it my 2 year old LOVES black olives on his! Then we just pop them in the oven for about 15 min until the cheese melts and they love this meal!! So so easy and very healthy!
