If you’re a fan of bagels, you’ve probably tried the savoury bagels at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. But did you know they recently launched a range of sweet bagels? A warm toasted bagel with cream cheese or butter, paired with a cup of hot coffee, is just the perfect snack either for breakfast and tea-time. According to Fiona Rodrigues, director of marketing and development, the reason they embarked on creating a fresh line-up of bagels was to introduce sweet dessert flavours that resonate very well and are trendy.
“We have always wanted a berry-based flavour for our bagels and blueberry custard is a very traditional flavour. Furthermore, blueberries and cranberries are antioxidant superfoods. Hence, our Cranberry Oatmeal and Blueberry Custard bagels are appealing on a healthy level and also delicious. As for the lovely Cinnamon Walnut bagel, we have always loved the idea of spices in our baked items. For example, we have the absolutely mouth-watering cinnamon brioche! These sweet bagels are somewhat a healthier dessert alternative when you crave for something sweet but do not want to break your dessert quota for the entire week!” shared Fiona.
