TheseBlueberry bagels are terrible

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
The blueberry bagels of yesteryear are gone. Bought Lender's Blueberry from grocer's refrigerator straight into mine and they were dry and tasteless, not like they used to be. Never buying again.

Purchased onion bagels at Walmart yesterday. Got them out to use this morning and they were unusable. One side of the bagels were rock hard, the other side was soft and mushy. Normally we love Lenders but these were just awful and such a disappointment! The POP # is76800 0****. The closure tag says Best if used by 28 NOV 23 with control #s of 131/1609 and 16:34/2373 Even more disappointing is that i ignorantly purchased 2 bags! Its hard to find onion bagels and Im sure well try lenders again but today our breakfast was not happening. Angry

Taste & quality

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full

Years ago these bagels were always good. They were smaller (and that was okay) and they had lots of ingredients you could see.

I would keep them in the freezer, take one out and put it in the microwave for 30 seconds to defrost and then put in the toaster (whole, not sliced). It would then be so toasty & chewy. I would sometimes use butter or cream cheese or eat plain. An easy grab and go for work too.

But NOW...

they are awful !!! Much bigger, less of the good ingredients, dry and tasteless. Have given them several tries the last few years with incredible disappointment. Will not buy these ever again.

Do not understand WHY companies do this ???

I understand the money aspect but I would rather pay more for something that I know is good. Very sad, just another thing to take off my list.

My recent purchase of plain bagels was incredibly awful. The bagels were soft and mushy inside and out. Are you saving money by skipping sone steps in the process? Nothing like a New York bagel!!!

Go back to old recipe. New ones not at all good. Why would they change something everyone loved? Makes no sense.

The blueberry Lender Bagels have gotten continually worse on their pre- cut angle over the last year and a half at least. The last bag I got was the tipping point for me. The blade need recalibrated

Complaint about the worsening cutting of the bagels, especially the blueberry bagels. The cut is getting so bad the top part is just a sliver that breaks apart and only pieces go in the toaster. They get unevenly toasted
View full review

User's recommendation: Call and complain if the pre-cut bagels are not cut more evenly. If they are cut so bad that the top is just a sliver.. PLEASE CALL AND COMPLAIN to make a difference to have the BILBO bakery calibrate their blades at the central Arkansas bakery.

They are not even worth 1 star . They sell it as a sliced bagel but don't actually cut it completely . Try to pull it apart and it crumbles and tears . VERY DISAPPOINTING !

Sell what you advertise . If you want more information tell your marketing executive to go to he'll.

Changed recipe

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
I used to love the French Toast flavor and I prefer the Lender's bagel texture. It was one of the cheapest brands but still tasted great in my opinion... But now, there is NO flavor. The so called French Toast tastes like a plain bagel, and it used to have swirls in the bagel, now it's all one color... bland. The price went way up and the quality went way down. Disappointed.

Not happy

They don't taste the same and even the texture is different. Not happy with the change that has taken place. Probably will not buy again.

After eating these bagels for 20+years they are just not the great tasting bagels. Something has changed and that great taste just isnt there. Ive tried the different varieties but I just dont get that certain taste anymore. Time to move on but not happy about it .
