I make my own and they will always be approximately round. That's because the cream cheese is round and it fits better on a round bagel.

I am a huge bagel fan. I like them round and would not want a square one. I see no reason for a petition though. It certainly is not hurting anyone to have a square bagel. If someone wants that then more power to them.

If I can get them out of a square toaster more easily, I'm all for it. Dont'cha just hate it when they get stuck, & you fiddle around with a knife to get 'em out. I'm waiting for a square English Muffin. Round bread - now that's practicle!

I just made a sand. with the new square sour dough bagel and my honey said it was great. When I saw them at the s.market, I thought "great". The hole isn't as big, and like mish stated, they fit much better in my toaster, mine has a large slot and a button for bagels. Sorry, I think it's a great thing.

Dear Friends:
Ella was kind enough to put in a link to the petition about the square bagel. My concern is protecting the Round Bagel not Thomas' square bagels, a Frankenstein neither bread nor bagel. The round bagel is iconic and its shape should not be changed. If we let this Square BagelBread exist what else will be changed, lox into pre-formed squares and triangular hot dog rolls.

Your help is needed and you must put down the cream cheese smearer and sign the petition.

Sign the petition and forward it on to other bagel aficionados.

I am a bagel lover. It was the breakfast food I grew up with. Some of my earliest and best memories are of eating breakfast at my grandparents house on Long Island and having the most amazing bagels with ALL the fixings.

I see no reason to petition to get rid of a square bagel though. It is not hurting anyone. If you don't like it then don't buy it. Simple as that. No need to get upset that it exists. The round bagel is not going to go away because a square bagel has come along.

For the record I would have no problem with pre-formed lox squares either. Triangular hot dog rolls won't ever exist because it just does not make and sense, but if someone wanted to create that then I say go for it. You won't see me buying them, but who cares if they exist. Maybe they will make someone happy. Why should that be a bad thing.

I think this petition must be a joke. That is the only thing that would make sense to me.

BTW I just looked at the site and it is not even being called a bagel. It is bagel bread (whatever that means) so why get all upset over something so inconsequential?
