New York City is well known for having one of the best food scenes in the world. While the city is full of five-star restaurants owned by some of the best chefs in the world, it is sometimes the more casual snacks that get the most attention. New York is definitely used to the newest trends in snack foods, which have recently included the cronut and coffee in a cone. According to a recent news article (http://www.cntraveler.com/stories/2016-08-10/the-mufgel-is-the-latest-nyc-food-craze) the mufgel could be the most popular culinary craze of all.
The mufgel is a delicious morning snack that is a cross between a muffin and bagel, which has helped anyone decide on the perfect breakfast. The mufgel, which has started popping up in bakeries all over the city over the past few weeks, was first introduced to the city in early July.
While it has rapidly increased in popularity, the snack has some interesting roots behind it. The snack was initially discussed as a joke on a popular New York City morning news program. Initially, it was considered a joke to poke fun at the recent craze of snack foods in the city. However, one bakery in Brooklyn decided that they wanted to take the idea to the next level. The popular Bagel Store in Brooklyn, which is owned by baker Scott Russilo, was the first to unveil the bagel. Overall consumer reports of the snack have been favorable. Many have stated that the mufgel looks like a bagel, but actually tastes quite a bit like a muffin. While it was initially only released for a temporary time, there is a good chance that the bakery could add it to the permanent menu.
