    they get better when they're a little stale. a real ny bagel should fight you back when you try to bite it. they're not supposed to give up easily.

    also H&H really ruined bagels when they were still in business. they used way too much sugar in the batter. a bagel is not supposed to be sweet (unless you add raisins)

    One day, unless you are going to toast it, then you can get away with two days.

    Same as bread a few days.

    You can freeze them and thaw them out overnight and they are fresh, or you can nuke them from frozen and they are fresh and warm. :hat:

    there's "stale" and there's "real New York Tough", and then there's moldy.

    you shouldn't want the moldy ones, unless its only slightly fuzzy blue and the blue can be scrapped off when no body is watching.

    Those stale kerosene pretzels they sell in NYC are at least 3 months old.

    Real bagels stay fresh for the day. However, you can freeze leftover bagels for about a week. Thaw or nuke as you use them. Toast em up and good to go.

    After day one you have to toast them to eat them.
