They claim "Made using Authentic Method since Day dot". What a pile of horse manure.
The process to create bagels is very specific and very different to making normal buns or pastries. It involves at least at one state stopping a par-boil with water treated with a specific chemical using lye or potassium hydroxide to get the particular level of chewiness and consistency in the bun.
I can assure you, that from an EATING perspective, this product does NOT meet up with ANY of the requirements or indications for a product calling itself a "Bagel" that would allow me to qualify it as something that is "Authentic" as labelled on the package.
It's doughy chewy dough doughnuts claiming to be bagels.
This product is not a bagel.
I bought a packet of the bagel crisps for the first time at Woolworths to have with dips. I was so disappointed when I opened the packet - the size of the crisps were so small and almost all were broken. Nothing like the picture on the packet.
Vegemite Bagel Crisps
Usually their products are fantastic but I recently had a bad batch (flavourless) vegemite bagel crisps. I contacted them via email and they verified via batch number that they were in fact below their usual standard and issued a voucher that more than covered the cost.
Support was fantastic, attentive and I felt like they genuinely cared. Love the company, love the product. Highly recommended!
- Verified purchase
Just a pack of crumbs and dust, not even a single whole bagel crisp in the pack. Terrible.
Purchased these twice and basically all I got was a pile of crumbs each time. I Actually wrote to the company and sent a picture, they said they would send me a voucher to make good on email. They never sent me the voucher. Talk about a useless company.
Edit: Company made good on the voucher, but it seems they have a manufacturing problem for the bagel crisps.
Spoonfuls of crumbs
Having purchased a beautiful Tassie blue brie cheese and then a packet of Abe's Bagel Crisps, to eat in remote part of West Coast, I am so disappointed to find I got a packet (half full at that) of varying sized crumbs. I am eating the crumbs using a spoon, with the brie on top. A total waste of money and a big disappointment.
As others have mentioned, the flavor and texture of these crisps is very pleasant. However, I think I have had maybe a quarter of the pack useable as “crisps”. The rest were a mangled crumble. I tried to contact the company before this review, but had no luck. I’m sorry to post this but really the product does not fit the description at all. I’m a private caterer and this product has disappointed too often. Can’t afford to use them again.
disappointing crispy crumbs
I have enjoyed these crisps in the past - never had a problem. But recently have been very disappointed. One bag filled with crumbs is an unfortunate accident, Twice is very annoying and the third time will be my last ... I'll not be buying this product any more ! The bags were not damaged so I can only conclude that they have been filled with the crumbs to start with. I am eating them but could not use them to place on a cheese platter for my guests ! Very disappointing indeed. I've read the comments and note that I am not the only one who is disappointed.
Don't waste your money
I am so disappointed with this product.
I have been buying these Roasted Garlic Bagel Crisps for awhile with the last 3 bags just broken bits.
I have decided that enough is enough NO MORE BUYING THIS BRAND.
The whole of the last bag was all broken and I take great care when I was buying them to have them separated in the shopping to the point of holding them carefully through checkout then placing them in an open bag so they would not be crushed.
I have worked out that they are broken to start with and no amount of careful handling makes th...
Vegemite Used to be Good
Usually I love these on the side with homemade soups. And I like the Vegemite ones as a snack. But the last few bags I have bought have no vegemite flavour anymore. They are just hard stale tasting bread. Usually in my house they disappear before I can get a look in. Now they are sitting in the cupboard because no-one wants them anymore.
What a shame. Please fix these back up.
