As if I wasn’t in enough trouble with their delicious Pumpkin Muffins and Pumpkin Spice Lattes, I now have another breakfast item to consider: The Pumpkin Pie Bagel.
You may recall, I was moved to compose “Ode to Panera” one morning last year after consuming a pumpkin muffin (click here for reference).
Today I was swayed by the woman behind the counter, and decided to give the new pumpkin pie bagel a try, with the recommended New York Cheesecake cream cheese…and this limerick is the result:A new pumpkin pie flavored bagel!
Panera has tried to finagle
My love for their muffins
By pie-flavored stuffins
But I’d rather eat cardboard rectangles.
There you have it folks…my verdict – stick with the muffins if you want a true taste of autumn; the bagels just aren’t going to satisfy that craving for pumpkiny spiced goodness.
