32. Reduced-fat turkey bacon breakfast sandwich
There was a time in the early ‘90s when low-fat everything was all the rage. Society snapped out of it when they realized it was sugar that was making us fat, but buzzwords are buzzwords and some will never go away. And like most “reduced-fat” items, this one is basically void of flavor. But it’s reduced-fat!
31. Michigan cherry oat bar
No disrespect to the state of Michigan, but the cherries in the jam topping don’t make a strong enough showing in the flavor profile to merit any kind of nod in the title. The oats on top are a nice contrast to the soft bottom layer, but I prefer my cherry bars from a grade-school bake sale.
30. Cheese Danish
The cream cheese Danish is a good option if you want a snack that’s rich but not aggressively sweet. My only knock is that it gets weird after sitting in a room-temperature case all day, so you may want to reconsider this option if noon constitutes as “morning” in your daily routine.
29. Plain bagel
This is officially the most average thing I’ve eaten in years. It’s a chewy, neutral palette for cream cheese if that’s what you require of your bagels. If you want an explosion of authentic New York-style bagel flavor here, well, you’ve probably never been to New York.
