L’oven Fresh Plain Bagels From Aldi Review

L’oven Fresh Plain Bagels are going in my toaster oven today. Well, I might just eat them at room temp. Is that weird if I just like taking bagels or bread and eating it straight out of the bag? I don’t think it is but I don’t know if other people might. There’s definitely something to be said about bagels and cream cheese where the bagel’s toasted.

I’ll also admit that toasting adds some extra flavor. Could just be that different consistency seems like a different flavor. Either way, I thought that regular bagels would be a good place to start. There’s about a billion different flavors out there these days, but original plan is always good. I’m sure you can find a bacon bagel somewhere if you look hard enough.

These L’oven Fresh Plain Bagels are like the healthier version of donuts. Not necessarily lower in calories, but definitely lower in sugar and fat content. I could definitely have a bagel before exercising but a donut would kill me. I’m sure that if I look around Aldi enough I can find some donuts another day, I mean they have French toast sticks so there’s gotta be donuts.

Maybe the ad this week will have some, it’s worth a look. Seems like more Aldi’s have been popping up in my area lately, I guess that’s a good thing since there’s always one pretty close within driving distance. Let’s take a look at some nutrition facts here.

L’oven Fresh Plain Bagels Nutrition Facts

L'oven Fresh Plain Bagels

These L’oven Fresh Plain Bagels do pack a pretty big punch in terms of calories. That’s a good thing as far as I’m concerned, it’s a convenient way to pack in 250 big ones quickly. I don’t care what different diet trends say, I’m convinced people need their carbs. There’s not too much fat in these, kind of expected that. I mean it’s a bagel, what would you expect?

There is actually a lot more sodium than I was thinking we’d see in the L’oven Fresh Plain Bagels. 20% might be something I’d expect in a tortilla, but not a bagel. Guess I learned something new in this one. One of these also has almost 20% of your daily carbs – that I did expect.

Tiny bit of fiber in there, too. That’s never a bad thing to see. We’re also looking at a tiny bit of sugar and actually a lot of protein in there as well.

Ingredients

bagel ingredients

These contain enriched wheat flower, which is made up of wheat flower, malted barley flour, niacin, reduced iron, thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin folic acid. It also contains 2% or less of sugar, yeast, salt, vital wheat gluten (yummy) and some monoglycerides.

Additionally, there are a few other kind of chemically sounding ingredients in the L’oven Fresh Plain Bagels as well.

The Review

I really enjoyed these from Aldi. You might think it’s tough to enjoy a plain bagel that I took straight out of the bag, but truth be told, they were really fresh. I was tentatively planning to cook some eggs and ground beef to make a sandwich but I just went for it and ate the thing right there.

They were good but I’ll be honest, a plain bagel is a plain bagel. There’s nothin’ fancy going on with them. I could absolutely see myself getting these again, the price was definitely right at $1.49 for these.
