It's actualy not bad, the price is not too bad if you buy 13 and they also sell nice cream cheese. Last time we bought the bagels were warm when they arrived and very fresh. Loads of options too.

Mail order only though.


They sell that brand in Cold Storage and Fairprice Finest.

yeah, I have bought NYC bagels from Cold Storage. Greggs? Marks? I never know what to do with Marks food. Saying that I used to go toe Marks for Christmas food whenever they used to have that GBP30.00 GBP5.00 off vouchers during Crimbo.
Their mince pies are so-so.

Yes, they do, however, when you buy from them, they are delivered fresh from the bakery, so better (IMO) than from the supermarket where they have been sitting for hours/days.

Just saying.

Not everyone can afford to consume thirteen bagels before they go stale or wait for them to be delivered at home (if work won't allow it).

It certainly took ages for them to open up in Singapore. Meantime have been going down to KL for my supplies. And with all that long queues I see in the UK I wonder what's so fantastic about krispykreme. Am alright with the once-a-month box of k'kremes tho'. a daily supply of durian chocolate cakes would be what I rather look forward to.

Bagels freeze well. In fact freeze, take one out, put in toaster ... yum

For me Krispy Kreme are too soft and sickly sweet.

I like Australian bakery donuts.

Tesco Jam/custard/chocolate donuts ........... 4 for a quid ......

Lots of sugary goodness

They are the solid kind and do not have holes in them, though that probably means they are not doughnuts

Oh yes, the Tesco jam donut. They were such a treat.

Krispy Kremes look good but the taste is a big let down.

Hey if the 'root canal' is planned a week ahead, it can't be *that* bad ;)

p.s. I went into Casualty once to have one. Perhaps the single most painful thing I've ever experienced. But the relief... the immediate elevation to the joyous uplands of Godly pain-free-ness, as that drill hit the festering geyser below... was quite amazing, I almost wanted to cry laughing!


Good luck!

:lol:

I think ASDA tried to copy ...... but not the same.

Its a pity TESCO didnt have a crack at the Singapore supermarket scene ... if only for a short while.
