Bagel or doughnut?

Bignuf Bignuf
I walk into our workplace this morning. There on the counter is a BIG bag of fresh, hot bagels, brought in by someone. Next to it is a big box of still warm Dough-nuts.

Now...a dozen people are in that lounge, so being a pig and picking one of each is a NO NO. I had to choose NONE, or one of the two options.


Which would YOU choose??????

(sorry to admit, I was UBER BAD and picked the chocolate covered, cream filled doughtnut!!! So much for any benefit from this mornings half hour of sweat at the gym)!!!! DARN those do gooders who bring food.

SO....which do you choose??????

The doughnut tastes better, but I try to watch what I eat. If the bagels were whole wheat I'd go with that. If not they're both laden with calories and I'd probably pass - even though it would be super hard since I love both.

Well, I had a bagel this morning and it was delicious. Faced with that choice, though I would probably go for a doughnut especially if they had blueberry.

Both sound delicious but I think I would've choose the bagel.

Sadly, a bagel isn't necessarily going to save you much in the way of calories. A yeast or raised donut can have about 170-270 calories. A 4.5" bagel can have 300-380 calories - and that's a plain bagel, with no cream cheese or anything. Of course, you're saving in the fat and transfat categories... but nevertheless, though a bagel seems like you're getting less calories, you may not be.

Anyway, I'd take a donut! LOL And not a small, plain yeast donut either!! If I'm spending calories, I want them to be as delicious as possible.

Probably the bagel. I'm fairly picky about donuts and tend to only like them if they're made by a smaller bakery/not commercialized.

I like them both. But I think I would have picked a donut as well.

I like them both but I'd b-line straight for the donut.

A bagel - if it's a good one and there's some cream cheese! (:

Oh, I'd choose the donut in a heartbeat. That's why I try to stay away from donuts. I can't control myself.

If there's cream cheese then a bagel. Otherwise I'd go for a doughnut.

Bagel. I like donuts once in a while, but bagel's nice for nibbling on. =]

I prefer bagels, but they both have a lot of calories so I try not to eat either too much.

Donut. Chances are decent it'd actually have fewer calories too. And you'd know you indulged.
