Thomas’®, a brand of pre-packaged grocery store bagels, is celebrated National Bagel Day 2016 on Tuesday, Feb. 9, by debuting its first entirely new full-size bagel flavor in more than two years — the Lemon Blueberry Bagel — as chosen by consumers during Facebook voting last fall.
This new, limited-edition flavor will hit shelves just in time for National Bagel Day, and will be available for six weeks. The Lemon Blueberry Bagel beat out contenders Apple Granola, Jalapeno Corn and Whole Wheat Everything — in respective order — to take the top spot.
“In recent years, the Thomas’ brand has seen a strong rise in the popularity of its Limited Edition flavors, so it was only fitting to give consumers the chance to vote on our next variety through social media,” said Jon Silvon, Senior Marketing Director of Thomas’ products. “The consumers have spoken, and we’re so excited to unveil the Lemon Blueberry Bagel in honor of National Bagel Day.”
Thomas’ will celebrate National Bagel Day on the ground in Los Angeles with a sampling event and outdoor party, but consumers across the country also have the chance to get a taste of Thomas’ Bagels, as the company will give away 10,000 free packages of bagels on its Facebook page all day Feb. 9.
