RYE BROOK, N.Y. -- It’s impossible to live here and not have a bagel opinion. The New York area, as everyone knows, is the bagel capital of the world. And yes, it’s worth waiting in line on a Sunday morning to get one of these doughy wonders fresh out of the oven. Toasting, as a bagel purist knows, is not necessary when you buy the very best.

We asked for your favorites and now have five contestants in the running. Each is being profiled this week as part of our ongoing DVlicious contest. Here’s the lowdown on one who made the cut.
What Makes Them Bagelicious: There's a reason Lenny's Bagels has been in business for more than 35 years. The shop takes a lot of pride in its variety of food and high quality ingredients.
Crazy Flavors: You name it, it's here, including gluten-free bagels and bagel pretzels. While plain and everything bagels remain big sellers, you'll also find cranberry vanilla, vanilla chocolate chip, and jalapeño cheddar. The cream cheese options are also varied -- think walnut raisin, strawberry cream cheese, plain tofutti and olive, among others.
Reminder: The contest ends Monday, April 25 at 5 p.m.. You can vote multiple times, albeit once per day.
