Breaking news in the bagel world: A Flamin’ Hot Cheetos bagel now exists, with a little help from a bakery and a 10-year-old.
According to Allison Ewing of BreadHive Worker Cooperative Bakery in Buffalo, New York, the idea for a bagel topped with crumbled Cheetos came about when a 10-year-old neighbor stopped by the bakery. The girl suggested that her snack might make a solid bagel match, and thus the Flamin’ Hot bagel was born.
Inspired by this young inventor, I brainstormed some other crazy childhood snack and food combinations that a 10-year-old might dream up. Surprisingly, many of them already exist. Turns out the culinary world needs to grow up!
