The world may never agree on the best bagel style (sit down, Montreal) but one thing's for sure: those suckers can always be improved with Cheetos. For proof positive, look no further than these fiery Flamin' Hot Cheetos bagels, currently on sale at Buffalo's BreadHive bakery thanks to a brilliant customer suggestion.
According to The Buffalo News, the breakfast hybrid came about after a local 10-year-old stopped by the shop with a bag of Flamin' Hot Cheetos. As she was snacking on Chester's children, she casually suggested the owners add the stuff to their bagels. They tested it out, and the initial response was more than a little rabid. Now, after tinkering with the recipe, BreadHive has officially put the Cheeto-blasted bagels on sale today. The next batch will roll out on Friday, and after that it's anyone's guess. But based on the public's general love of bagels, Cheetos, and eating gluttonous stuff before their first coffee, we have a feeling these guys will stick around for a while.
