New best bagels in Howard County

   For most of us the bagels at the Bagel Bin have always been the ones that most represented what a "real" bagel should be like.  None of those bready fake bagels that are sold in most grocery stores.  A real bagel had to be crusty on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside.  The pictures above are from my new favorite bagel store---Wegmans.  Yes, a grocery store that makes their own bagels that top the Bagel Bin ones.  My favorite bagel has always been the everything bagel.  The poppy seed es are also great.  Instead of cream cheese I like to put on some of the Maryland crab dip that is sold at Wegmans.

Hi Duane, YOu might want to reach out to @ZackPund who created this list - And ask him if he'll add your "great bagel place" to the list.

Also, thanks so much for using the "magic phrase" for the hocoblogs category organization to put your blog post in the food category. The exact and specific term to use is hocofood@@@ ... with no other letters or symbols touching that word. Thanks!
