NYC Bagel Factory bagels are baked fresh every day so go ahead and enjoy them the day you buy them. In the unlikely event you have any leftovers, don’t worry! Here are some tips that will help you to keep enjoying our bagels the way they are meant to be enjoyed:
Store leftover bagels in a tightly sealed plastic bag at room temperature. Your bagels will still taste fresh stored this way for up to 36 hours. Remember… we do not add preservatives to our bagels!
You can refresh day-old bagels by slightly moistening the exterior and baking at 180°C (350°F) for 7-10 minutes.
Freeze any extra bagels in a tightly sealed plastic bag. Bagels freeze extremely well and will last for months. Before freezing, slice the bagels. They can then be toasted straight from the freezer, or thawed at room temperature for a still-fresh taste.
Do NOT microwave bagels. Microwaves are not bagel-friendly.
Do NOT put your bagels in the fridge/chiller. Refrigeration hastens staleness.
