January 15th is National Bagel Day 2021, the official date to honor and enjoy the bagel this year. The humble bagel, once known as obwarzanek, is believed to have originated as a ring of bread in Poland during the 14th century. The bagel began to trend in the U.S. in the ’70s, and today is a well-known and popular breakfast grab-and-go.
It’s estimated that more than 200 million Americans consumed a bagel in 2020. The most popular bagel is up for debate, depending on what region of the country and what time of day it’s being consumed. However, the flavors often ranking near the top are plain, cinnamon raisin, sesame and everything.
