There’s only one way to slice a bagel, right?
According to a recent tweet, people in St. Louis secretly slice their bagels like you would a loaf of bread.
Today I introduced my coworkers to the St Louis secret of ordering bagels bread sliced. It was a hit! pic.twitter.com/XNGbljtpYz— Alek Krautmann (@AlekKrautmann) March 26, 2019
How can this be? I mean they would still taste the same but can you fathom eating a bagel this way?
Panera bagels are in the photo and the company tweeted it isn't quite sure what to make of it, either.
Our team is divided over here. Do other people slice their bagel Bread Co style? https://t.co/NbdZjj6G6C— Panera Bread (@panerabread) March 27, 2019
Of course, the internet reacted.

Not all reactions were bad.
Hey but as a diabetic I have been told to _never_ eat bagels but with a bread sliced one I could pick out a reasonable portion and keep my blood sugar down, And anyway I don't get why a big wodge of dough is so sacred!— Lucy Went-A-Walking (de la Mare) (@lucykemnitzer) March 27, 2019
I'm not into bagels but I like this idea— Divalatina (@Divalatinawow) March 28, 2019
