sign of the apocalypse?

Signofapocalypse01

Is this supposed to be funny or is it a sign of the apocalypse?  What do you think?

Do you know where this is? 
(hint: a venerable NYC specialty baker, perhaps the place you least expect to see a sign such as this..)

    I can’t even imagine what a low carb bagel is. I thought the low carb craze died out when Atkins when bankrupt.

    Geez, what is the word coming to? It reminds of the cereal ads that tout “We have calcium; the others don’t.” Um, so no one else adds milk?
    My guess would be Lahey’s place.

    It looks like Kossar’s on the lower east side.

    I’m as interested in low carb bagels as I am in vegetarian bacon.

    Well, my neighbor’s husband mail ordered low carb, low fat, whole wheat tortilla from CA to NYC! See what she said on her blog.

    That definitely looks like Kossars on LES. I used to work at the coffee shop right up the block. I remember their piping how bagels in the morning.mmmm….

    People still sell low carb? In NYC? I am surprised. I can’t guess where it is, but I can tell you that it’s sad. If you want low carb, have an egg for breakfast.

    How does one make a low carb bagel?

    how on earth and what on earth do they add to the bagels instead of wheat? is it low-carb or do they actually mean LOWER carb? I bet they substitute soy flour for part of the wheat.

    I wonder if the bagels were made from soy flour. If they wanted to be really trendy, they could make Gluten-Free bagels by using millet flour.
    I think I would like to try both smothered in cream cheese and topped with lox or nova, some red onion rings and capers.
    I am unfamiliar with NYC Bakeries, but I would be surprised if it was a traditional semitic one.

    Apocalypse. Then again, the bagels could be ‘low carb’ because they made them smaller, thus less carbs. Wishful thinking, huh?

    I thought the low carb phase was over! lol

    My guess is that “low-carb bagels” are just the hole at the center.

    You think that’s bad, we just spotted low fat 1/2 & 1/2. Is that like, milk or 2% milk or what?

    As a person with type 1 diabetes, I monitor my carbohydrate intake very carefully. The low carb/Atkins diet fat definitely worked in my favor. Low carb bread (very thin slices, mind you), low carb tortillas, whole grains.. etc, etc are great for me.
    For me, bagels are a carb bomb that play havoc with my blood glucose levels, and I rarely eat them. *sigh* So I’d be willing to try these particular bagels, if I was in NYC.

    I suppose this is a god news for some of the people, certainly not for me. I need carb to able able to function well!

    Hilarious. The thought of a low carb bagel takes out half of the delicious fun of eating carbs.

    Oops, re-reading that it sounded a little critical, I was more wondering what I did wrong, how I can make it better. Any suggestions?
