Apparently People Slice Bagels Like Bread In St. Louis And Honestly? WTF.
A style of slicing bagels as you would a loaf of bread — aka bread-sliced — has caused OUTRAGE among a lot of people this week. (Ok, so not real outrage, but, like, bread outrage.)
The drama all started when Alek Krautmann, a St. Louis native and employee of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, tweeted a photo Monday of a box of Panera bagels looking like they’d gone through a paper shredder.
Andrea Lanning, 25, explained that Panera locations there all have automatic bread slicers for this very purpose, which she said makes it “easy to dip in cream cheese or butter or just snack on in smaller bites.”
“Bread-sliced was the most popular way to prepare the bagels at the Bread Company!” Lanning said.
So, are you a bread-slicer? Traditionalist? Let’s start some arguments in the comments, people.
