The Rise and Fall of H&H Bagels by Marc Zirogiannis

By Reg on June 20, 2016
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a sad story. Helmer Toro is despicable if this story is accurate. All of the people that believed in him 
that were let down should come forward to corroborate this book. It is not the company or the delicious bagels 
that were upsetting. It was the man who had his insurance taken from him with no warning so he couldn't 
receive his cancer treatment. It was all the paycheck to paycheck workers that stayed until the end thinking 
that Helmer was working to save them. If this account is factual, Helmer Toro should be a full time 
inmate at Ryker Island and not just a 'weekend warrior'.

Dennis St. John did a good job narrating this material.

I received this book for free from Audiobook Boom! in exchange for an honest review.

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Bodega Bagels (But Were Afraid to Ask)

February 17, 2016
- Ask a New Yorker what they think of bagels sold in bodegas, and the response is pretty uniform. Stale, flavorless, pale, soft, mediocre. The nameless and brand-less bagels, often stacked on top of each other in clear bread cases above deli counters, somehow all seem the same. Of course, they're not.
