Bagel Bites for Simple Snacking

We've never purchased Bagel Bites prior to this campaign. I offered to try them with my family, however, and was interested to know if the kids would like them compared to traditional pizza. Here is what we found:

First, they were easy to make. You can microwave them or bake them in the oven. Not surprisingly, the kids and I preferred them in the oven. The cheese melted more evenly, and the bagels were crisper this way. However, if I were leaving my daughter home to watch the kids and needed her to cook, I might feel more comfortable with her using the microwave, so this is a good option.

Here is a typical snack with the Bagel Bites. 

They come in 2 servings per box, but my younger kids could split a box three ways (3 each.)  I tend to like my pizza on a thin crust, but they weren't bad. I could see these as a quick and simple snack for the family or served with fruit and veggies for a light lunch that wouldn't require a lot of cleanup.

There is another reason to try Bagel Bites, however, and it's their initiative to help families with simple snacking!  As part of the campaign, they are giving $1 to Boys and Girls Clubs of America for every pledge made (up to $50K).  You can pledge to Keep it Simple, Keep It Tasty, and Keep it Fun by visiting the official page!
