Today is the day that I ate the best spinach bagel ever. Today is the only day that I have ever eaten a spinach bagel, but it was maybe the best one that I will ever eat. And not because it was so gross that I will never eat it again – just because it was that darn yummy. My bagel was tinted green (does that make you want to throw up?) and topped with tomato, lettuce, and cream cheese. The best part of my spinach bagel is that it was only $2.23. And when I have change – like a quarter – that doesn’t count as money, so my lunch was really only $2! Top that! Spinach bagels are born at Bagel Bin here in Huntersville, NC, and other than the BB, I’ve never even heard of such a treat. I was very pleased with my whole BB experience because the bagel makers were having fun and my bagel sandwich was prepared in a jiffy. Also, my lettuce was dark dark green and not that iceberg nonsense that my sister prefers.
Two things that I think the Charlotte area is missing are: a good bagel bakery and a decent smoothie shop. From my experience here, we only have Bruegger’s Bagels and Smoothie King. And those places are pond scum compared to Tropical Smoothie and Chesapeake Bagel Bakery in Virginia Beach. Oh, I would give anything for a Sun-Dried Tomato Bagel from CBB and a Banana Banana Smoothie from TS (at separate occasions). Quite frankly, Charlotte, I could live on Tropical Smoothie’s Smoothies. So I think we should go ahead and acquire one. When I make my first million working as a marketing assistant, I’ll make the big move and open for everyone’s frozen fruit sipping pleasure. Free samples all around. In the mean time, would anyone mind mailing me one?
