Green bagels to honor the Eagles: They're Beagles

Green bagels in the oven at Spread Bagelry.

Bakers Oscar Gomez (front) and Jose Solis make Beagles, a green bagel that Spread Bagelry is selling to honor the Eagles.

As Philadelphia goes nuts about the Eagles’ trip to the Super Bowl, there is no shortage of promotions and deals out there, along with the fun bets.

Spread Bagelry has stepped things up a hole lot.

It’s called the Beagle.

The shops in University City and Rittenhouse Square, which specialize in wood-fired Montreal-style bagels, are dyeing batches green. (There’s a St. Pat‘s joke in there somewhere.)

The green options ($2 a throw) are plain, sesame, and “all or nothing” — which is owner Larry Rosenblum’s play on everything.
