    Was it serendipity? I don't care. If it was, I'm glad I put this up.

    That bagel shop I love? The one that was closed two decades and opened back up in November? The one that didn't have cucumbers? Yeah. They didn't have CUCUMBERS. Until today....

    My lucky day!

    Hmm that photo would be about last on my list of things to eat.
    Well, maybe slightly ahead of liver or tripe. :o

    I do not like cucumber and not a great fan of raw onion.

    I vote for Krispy Kreme chocolate and custard donut

    Bagel, every single time! Preferably an Onion Bagel, with Marmite melting into it’s lightly toasted inner. 🥯

    Bagel each and every time. Bagel can easily be made into something sweet that will resemble a doughnut.

    I'm gonna go with a no on that. A good bagel is very different from a good doughnut. Yes they both have flour, water, and some doughnuts also have yeast, but that's because they're both bread products. That's more or less where the similarities end. You could say the same about cake or the aforementioned fry bread.

    No no. What I meant was that I can make the bagel sweet, like a donut, just by toasting and spreading butter and good jelly on top.

    Meh. A bagel that can resemble a doughnut (other than visually, which I'm assuming is not what you meant) is not a good bagel. A doughnut should not be chewy. A bagel should not be pillowy soft.

    See my reply above. Nothing to do with texture.

    Bagel for me, pumpernickel...

    The bagel will keep you fuller especially with the toppings....the donut wont fill a hole for more than half an hour - that's what I find anyway, they're just a sugar hit.

    Bagel every time - Doughnuts just do nothing for me.

    I'd say bagel, but I'd need more than 300 calories because Peanut Butter.

    I prefer savoury over sweet, so bagel for me. I love it just toasted and buttered, though I won't say no to a layer of herb garlic cream cheese.

    You know, if it is a nice soft multigrain bagel, yes please, and hold the cream cheese. Donuts are a fave of mine as well.... So I am conflicted on what I would choose.

    Donut. A good fresh chocolate long john or glazed donut or even a bag full of donut holes and I am in heaven. Bagels are nice, but I prefer the fluffy, fried goodness of a donut.

    I like them both. Plain or whole wheat/honey wheat Bagel with garden vegetable cream cheese with fresh fruit works better for lunch. Also, those little pizza bagel bites can be quite addictive. Doughnuts would be preferred for breakfast. The ones with strawberry icing and sprinkles are great!
    A - bagels
    B - doughnuts
    C - all of the above

    C) for me.

    Depends what I feel like

    Fresh warm bagels form the local Montreal style bagel place are amazing
    Then again a freshly made donut is delicious.

    Basically I'll take either

    1st choice is an everything bagel. 2nd choice is a blueberry donut. After that, I don't really care.
