When local bagel chain Kettleman Bagel Co. was bought by the Einstein Bros. Bagels last November, the masses speculated — again and again — as to whether or not the Kettleman bagel recipe would be changed. And now, the answer: Yes, with the exception of three kettle-boiled "flavors" that will remain on the menu.
Per a press release, three original Kettleman recipes will remain available post Einstein-re-branding, in a move that "will more than double the availability of kettle-style boiled kosher bagels to Portland residents." Portlanders are invited to visit this here Facebook page to vote for their favorite kettle-boiled flavor, presumably saving them from getting the ax.
