That rather eye-watering price is because in the time they'd take to make 2500 normal bagels, they can put just

    And if you want to take your time over the perfect shot (or get one done for someone else as a pressie), you can just upload a pic from your phone when you're in store and get the labels done that way. The personalised Mini Moët
