Sliced bagel controversy makes its way to Long Island
A St. Louis man's photo of bagels sliced like bread has gone viral on social media - and now the debate has made its way to Long Island.
Alex Krautmann tweeted the photo March 25. It shows two boxes of bagels with each bagel sliced vertically into multiple pieces.
However, people on the East Coast were in shock over the style of bagel cutting.
Jessica Levine, of Oceanside, say slicing a bagel like that is wrong.
"You can't slice a bagel like that," says Levine. "That's completely not Kosher."
Sen. Charles Schumer wasn't buying it either. Schumer tweeted, "On behalf of the New York Delegation: St. Louis Fuhgeddaboudit."
While many New Yorkers disagree with the midwesterner's bagel slicing method, they say in the end a bagel is a bagel and no matter how you slice it, it's still delicious bread.
