Reviewing NYC’s Baz Hanukkah Bagel

A few weeks ago it was brought to my attention that a bagel shop in New York was selling a Hanukkah bagel package on Goldbelly. For those of you who aren’t aware, Goldbelly is a service that allows you to order high-end/gourmet foods from restaurants across the country. Want pastrami on rye from a legit deli but you live in Owatonna? Goldbelly will deliver it to your door – at a premium of course.

So I immediately ordered the $89 Hanukkah bagel package. I figured it would be a nice follow-up to TC Jewfolk’s previous two attempts to find a decent bagel in town: First in 2012, and then again in 2018.

Let’s put the $89 price tag aside. The bagels from Baz are legit NYC bagels. The blue and white tie-dye makes them pretty, but a little distracting. That said, they would still be the best bagel in all of the Twin Cities. 

The package comes with 1/2 pound of lox, 2 tubs of cream cheese, and 6 mini black and white cookies that are in fact blue and white as well. 

For $89, this is a special occasion item, one for the kids, or a gift. There are many other bagel options on Goldbelly that provide more bang for the buck, 

What’s your favorite bagel? Let’s order some and compare. 

Oh, and Happy Hanukkah!
