Jan. 15, 2022, is National Bagel Day — the official “hole-y” day to honor, celebrate and enjoy the iconic bagel.
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 snack.
It’s estimated that more than 200 million Americans consume a bagel annually. However, the most popular bagel is up for debate, depending on what region of the country and what time of day it’s being consumed. The flavors often ranking near the top are plain, cinnamon raisin, sesame and everything.
How can you celebrate the “hole-iest day” of the year? Usually, we’d tell you to take advantage of FREE bagels on National Bagel Day, but so far, no national freebies or deals have been announced for that day. However, Einstein Bros. Bagels recently added its Take & Toast Bagels to Walmart shelves in more than 3,500 locations nationwide, so if you don’t have a freestanding bagel shop in your city, you might be able to score an Einstein Bros. bagel at Walmart to toast at home. And, we’ve found some free bagel offers if you sign up for the loyalty programs below.
You can also check with your local bagel shop to see if it’s offering any freebies or deals.
Every year, we publish the best offers around the country, so keep checking back in case deals are announced.
