When it comes to food my family is like a bunch of little piggies heading to the slop tray…most of them will try just about anything. As avid Instagram followers, we creep on the most obscurely delicious delicacies, and made it our goal to eat at each one of them.
A recent trip to a tiny town not far from Freehold, NJ concluded with a well-awaited for trip to the famous Bagel Nook in Freehold. http://www.thebagelnook.com/ Dear God! Who the hell stays up at night coming up with these concoctions that will balloon you in your sleep, waking up fifty pounds heavier just from a dream? I ventured to try the ever popular Cheeto Bagel. When I asked what I should team it with, the obvious answer was “ranch cream cheese.” Of course, ranch cream cheese, what else. Richard Simmons, come out of hiding, please!!!!! This cannot be on Deal A Meal!
My usually cautious Federica did stick with the standard menu, and went for the basic, Oreo Overload: Oreo brownie stuffed to capacity with Oreo cream cheese. She now tells me she did something with Nutella mixed with the bagel. She had to mix it with Oreo? Eva, my creative little guru overloaded her ten year old jaw with a Fruity Pebbles Bagel injected with cookie dough cream cheese, because really, what else do you eat with a Fruity Pebbles bagel?
Bagel Nook’s Instagram tells the real story @the_bagel_nook. I took a gander today and didn’t get passed the overloaded Cheeetos Flamin’Hot bagel, Fruity Pebbles bagel with cotton candy cream cheese, or my midnight snack fantasy, French Toast Bagel draped in s’mores cream cheese. Wait…if that doesn’t do it for you, and you find these entrees too boring, reach over the counter for a Dorito bagel with jalapeno cheddar cream cheese, stuffed with Doritos. Then for a little something sweet after you scarf that down, try the Cap’n Crunch bagel with salted caramel and chocolate chip cream cheese. Make sure you accompany your overdone, seriously WTF are you doing bagel with water..it’s much healthier.
Truth be told, I wish they were closer. MMMMM….maybe not. The staff here works harder than Lucy and Ethel on the chocolate candy conveyor belt, and the line may look like it’s dragging, but it moves along, and is worth the wait. The Nook’s online menu is way too average for me. Check out their Instagram or take a ride in a vehicle you can still fit on on the way home. Worth every single unwanted calorie.
