Much has been said and written about Howard's passion for Perfectly Toasted Bagels, how he must start every day, no matter where he is, with a Cinnamon Raisin Bagel from The Nosh restaurant in Beverly Hills. We know that Cathy orders the Bagels in bulk, individually wraps, freezes and even ships them, when necessary, to Colorado ... and that Howard has taken the art of Bagel Toasting to a whole new level. But how much do we really know about these Bagels? What Deep Dark Secret lurks behind Howard's addiction? For the answers to these and other questions, I visited the Nosh this afternoon on the pretext of picking up Howard's latest supply.

Me: Hello, I'm here to pick-up a large order of Cinnamon Raisin Bagels.

Mr. Nosh: You must be Marty. We've been expecting you.

Me: Yes. Let me ask you, do all of your customers order dozens of bagels at a time?

Mr. Nosh: Yes, of course. Everyone loves our bagels. Especially Cinnamon Raisin. And Egg, too. They come from miles around.

Me (chuckling): I'm sure they do. But why? What's your secret?

Mr. Nosh: Our Bagels are the best, people never stop ordering them.

Me (suspicious): What do you put in them?

Mr. Nosh (evasively): Try one!

I declined. Afterall, everyone knows I'm more of a Fritter man.

That was so sweet of you to do for your friend. I have an idea that this oh-so-innocent Bagle has something to hide about it!...Nothing as extream as Herion....but something more then simple BUTTER!

Hard to find a good bagel nowadays! Even harder to find a good fritter, oh wait, maybe there's no such thing!

There is a place here(probably everywhere now that I think of it) that sells warm cinn raisin pretzels. I just had a bite, but it was wonderful. Maybe he'd switch over if he tried it. ~Mary

A little scared to try something new, Mr. Marty ??? :o)

Sounds like you might have a new career as an investigative reporter. Something is suspicious about Mr. Nosh and his unwillingness to answer your probing questions. What is he hiding?
