If it’s a work day I’m definitely not a savory breakfast person. If it’s a weekend I'm always down for some good old fashioned bacon and eggs but when I’m eating breakfast before work I always need something slightly sweet. Last time I was at Costco I noticed these Ozery Bakery Morning Rounds and I could smell the strong scent of blueberry seeping out of the bag, I decided to try them.
These are pretty tasty! They taste like a softer, flattened, less chewy bagel. They’re VERY flavorful and there’s a generous amount of blueberries and raisins in each round. The blueberry flavoring isn’t very artificial tasting and not overly sweet. The rounds are less heavy than a bagel and toast up nicely. Although they’re super thin I still cut the rounds in half to get the maximum amount of surface area that I can slather butter on to (if I had a list of my top 10 favorite foods, butter would be on it). I also prefer toasting each half rather than toasting the whole round to get the inside extra crispy.
12 morning rounds cost $6.49 Canadian. More than a loaf of bread but about the same price as 12 Costco Kirkland Signature Bagels.
I’ve been bringing these to work and they’re really easy to toast up and eat in a pinch. I prefer to eat them with butter but you could also spread almond butter or jam on top or even just eat them plain. The rounds also freeze well. One thing I find a little inconvenient is that these aren’t pre-sliced and every time I tend to cut them in half I get a really thin half and a thicker half.
Each round is 190 calories, one and a half grams of fat, 220mg of sodium, 40 grams of carbohydrates, three grams of fibre, six grams of protein and nine grams of sugar. If I compare the nutrition to half a Costco Kirkland Signature Imitation Blueberry Bagel (62.5 grams) versus 75 grams for a morning round. The calories in a whole round are a little more, the sugar is almost double, the protein is the same and the carbs are about the same. The sodium is quite a bit less though. The question is would you rather have half a bagel or a full flat morning round?
These were fun to try and they’re very tasty! I definitely enjoyed them enough to repurchase them but I tend to get tired of things quickly if I eat them all the time!
What’s your go to breakfast carb? Would you try these? Why or why not?
