The only acceptable “flavor” is a simple white flour bagel, with periodic exceptions made for whole wheat and pumpernickel. Flavors such as blueberry and cheddar jalapeño are widely frowned upon by bagel connoisseurs.
Most bagel makers and appetizing shop owners argue that a fresh bagel should never be toasted. H&H went as far as to refuse requests from customers for toasted bagels. Some offer the conceit that toasting a bagel is acceptable if the bagel was baked the day before.
The most iconic topping for bagels after cream cheese is fish. These three types of prepared fish are often confused by even devoted bagel fans. Here’s a cheat sheet: Lox is cured in a salt brine leaving a salty finish. Nova specifically refers to Nova Scotia salmon, though it is also often used to describe cold smoked fish, which has a less salty finish than lox. Smoked salmon is all inclusive term that also covers items like hot smoked salmon.
