The bagel, like the circle from which it takes its shape, is a metaphor for life; it literally never ends. Celebrate that delicious symbol with today's Groupon: for $4, you get a dozen bagels at Balsam Bagels (an $8.29 value).
Ron and Rebecca Malek lead the baking staff at Balsam Bagels as it produces upwards of 200-dozen bagels a night, selling and distributing these 2,400 circles of sustenance to local colleges, coffee shops, and delis. Snag 12 bagels for yourself, with flavors such as sesame, wheat, rye, sun-dried tomato, pesto, blueberry, french toast, and salsa jalapeño, bringing the heat like a Nolan Ryan–thrown bagel. Customers can opt for 12 of the same bagels for a Bunyan-sized breakfast, or they can mix and match for a variety of spread-worthy circles. Enjoy your bagels from the privacy of your own hut, or split them with friends in the bakery's outdoor seating section.
Though not included in this deal, customers may wish to complement their duodecad of bagel goodness with some of Balsam Bagel's 8-ounce offerings of cream cheese ($3.49 each), available in tantalizing tastes such as bacon scallion, cheesecake, and cranberry orange. Stop by Balsam Bagels and pick up 4,320 degrees of fresh-baked and nutritious bagel bliss.
