With over 100 years in the industry, Dempster’s is there for Canadians no matter what -or when -they are craving a bagel. Whether you’re a bagel traditionalist or bagel maverick, there is something for everyone!

To help Canadians ring in this food holiday from the comfort of their own home, the brand recently introduced a new bagel flavour to its lineup of delicious and craveable flavours- all of which are ba-goals.

Check out the list below for all of the must-try bagels from Dempster’s that are perfect for enjoying any time of day!

*New* Brioche Bagel: made with real eggs and butter and inspired by French tradition, these bagels have an irresistibly sweet, buttery finish and are crispy on the outside yet soft and fluffy on the inside.

Four Cheese: the savoury flavours of real cheese with a premium blend of parmesan, asiago, cheddar, and mozzarella take this classic bagel into a new age.

Parmesan Garlic & Herb Flavour: made with delicious parmesan flavour and garlic, these bagels are baked with real herbs to make this a truly savoury bagel.

Blueberry Flavour: now you can enjoy the great taste of blueberries, no matter the time of year! These bagels are made with the sweet and delicious blueberry flavour Canadians crave.

Maple French Toast Flavour: a Canadian classic, the taste of maple syrup comes to life with a warm cinnamon flavour in every bite of these bagels.

To continue the conversation, Dempster’s also encouraged Canadians everywhere to engage in the Great Bagel Debate by sharing their most common or surprising bagel preferences.

Dempster’s conducted a national survey to see how Canadians feel about one of their favourite foods and discovered some strong opinions surrounding how they choose to enjoy their beloved bagels. For example, do most prefer sweet or savoury bagels? When asked to decide, the majority (53%) chose savoury bagels over those that are either sweet (16 %) or both (31%).

Dempster’s also uncovered that this survey group loves to enjoy a variety of combinations and flavours, in which, 46% of Canadian bagel lovers feel strongly about the way they enjoy their bagels. As a result, it turns out that the most popular bagel topping among almost three quarters (73%) of Canadian bagel lovers is cream cheese, with butter coming in a close second at 69%.

No matter how you choose to enjoy your bagel this National Bagel Day, one thing is for certain- the Dempster’s lineup offers a unique and satisfying twist on the Canadian favourite. If you’re looking to try some – or all- of the Dempster’s Signature bagel flavours, you can find them at most grocery retailers across Canada.
