    * Okay, so I HATE writing negative reviews but this time I have to make an exception and I really feel that I have to share my opinion. First, I must say I love, love, LOVE Great Low Carb Bread's REGULAR Bagels. I mean I LOVE them. Sometimes I use them for sandwiches but mainly I enjoy them in the morning, toasted with butter & cream cheese, and often, depending on the variety, with lox too. My all-time favorite is their Everything bagels but I really do love their Sesame too. I also regularly order their Rye, Garlic Butter and Pumpernickel. On occasion I'll order the Onion, sometimes the Cinnamon and I've enjoyed their Pumpkin & Spice. (Probably the only one I've actually missed is the Multi-Grain and believe it or not, I just ordered that one today, lol!!!) What I'm trying to say here is I've had LOTS of positive experience with these bagels!

    Well, the other day, I was ordering Garlic Butter but "Everything" and Rye were both out of stock. :-( I already had some Sesame on hand so I thought now would be the PERFECT opportunity to try out the Low-Calorie Bagels. "Everything" was out of stock there as well so I ordered Plain. As luck would have it, the day my order came was a night off from cooking so we had already planned on a kind of early dinner thing with all kinds of Italian Cold Cuts. Some Genoa Salami, Capicola, Prosciutto...a few slices of Provolone...that kind of thing. Like a do-it-yourself Italian coldcut sub! (yum, right?!) I made my husband's on a Ciabatta roll and mine went right on the bakery-fresh low-calorie bagel that had just arrived!

    The problem however, was the bagel. Not only the taste (or lack thereof), but it was the texture of the outer 'crust' and the endlesssssss chewing involved in order to even get the thing DOWN! As another reviewer mentioned, it was indeed like chewing on cardboard. And this was soooooooo UNEXPECTED!!! You saw my list above, so who would have ever DREAMED that after out-and-out loving 8...that would be EIGHT(!)...different varieties of the GLCBC's REGULAR bagels that I would try a low-cal version from the SAME company that I wouldn't even be able to get THROUGH it?! Well, I thought it HAD to be because the bagel wasn't toasted, so this morning, I bravely took a second one to the toaster, but I'm sorry to report I had the very same tasteless, cardboard-like result. And the endless chewwinnng and chewwwwinnnng and chewwwwwwwinggggggg.

    I must reiterate. As far as Great Low Carb Bread Company's REGULAR Bagels go...these bagels are AHHHHHHmazinggggg!!! 5 Stars all the WAY!!! Needless to say however, I can't say the same for their Low-Calorie version.

    These Low-Calorie Bagels seemed like a TOTALLY different product from a totally different company! So today (only 7 days since my last order), I came back to Netrition and was happy to see that they were all restocked in the regular Rye and the regular Everything Bagels which I happily reordered, and, while I was at it I also placed an order for Multigrain Bagels so I will be be able to say "I've tried them all"!

    * They have the consistency of a hamburger bun and get very hard even with light toasting. Terrible.

    * So sorry. I wanted to like these. I've had other low carb bagels that I love, so my expectations were not unrealistic (I.e. I didn't expect them to taste like "regular" bagels). I toasted the bagel, as I normally would. I tried one half, it was awful, so I changed the toaster setting for the the second half. Still awful. It literally was like cardboard. the crust had a stiff, hard, papery texture. I could barely chew it and there was zero flavor. I had to throw these out. They weren't just not good. They were not edible. I wish I had been able to write a better review.

    * I regularly buy and enjoy this company's regular low carb bagels (multigrain the best), regular and thin sliced rye bread, and hamburger rolls. These, however, are wretched. They have a bland yet unpleasant taste and the consistency of playdough. Toasting them makes them slightly less worse. You are far better off cutting one of their regular bagels in thirds and using the outside slices as your bagel. The middle piece can be used later as a slice of bread. Calorie and carb wise it's about the same and much better.

    * If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is, but I gave these a try anyway. The taste and texture were DISGUSTING! I even ladled on whipped cream cheese and still couldn't swallow this YUCK! Cardboard would be an improvement.

    * These bagels are UTTER TRASH. In fact after one bite, that is where I placed the entire bag - right in the trash. These are not like the regular GLCBC low carb bagels - the ones that are NOT low calorie are thoroughly decent. No these. THESE LOW CALORIE ones are rubbish. I took one bite and it fell apart in my mouth. I felt like I was actually eating cardboard flakes. It was awful. AWFUL. If you are doing low carb then calories should not be that much of a concern. Don't waste your money on this. But the GLCBC Low Carb bagels that are 120 cal each and 2 carb. This is a waste of money.

    * Perhaps I'm too used to my regular bagel, but this alone with just butter is a step above cardbosrd (barely) and requires some salami to dress it up.

    * I tried, I really tried, to eat these, but I could not even chew the bagel - the texture is like sawdust and the taste is the same. I am going back to a different bagel, which I think are delicious - and the taste is incomparable.
