Aries: Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Bagel
There are only so many hours in the day to get things done. And as the ambitious leader of the zodiac, Aries tend to be early birds who begin their day with a long to-do list. So, one thing's for certain—you'll need a filling breakfast that'll give you the energy to keep going all day long.
The classic bacon, egg, and cheese bagel has all the protein and carbs you'll need to start your day off on the right foot. And the ooey-gooey melted cheese is the perfect decadent treat.
Taurus: Onion Bagel
Tauruses are known for being focused and driven workers, but that doesn't mean you like waking up before the sun. If you can get away with hitting snooze, you'll do it. You know that everything will get done in time and aren't looking to add unnecessary stress to your life.
Sensual and tuned into your senses, you like foods with rich flavors that pack a punch. So, the next time you oversleep, treat yourself to an onion bagel with warm cream cheese. This flavorful combo will have you savoring every bite (and get you where you're going on time).

Gemini: Plain Bagel
Charming, funny, and chatty—Geminis are anything but dull. Whether it's your down-to-earth approach to making friends or your willingness to try new things, you're one of the most exciting people to have around. But your love of variety means you often have a hard time making up your mind.

Cancer: Blueberry Bagel
You're the nurturer of the zodiac, Cancer, so you know all about keeping things cozy. As someone who places a lot of value on family, food is more than a meal for you; it's a way of connecting with others. Therefore, you're usually the one hosting brunch. But even a domestic diva like you doesn't always have time to cook a gourmet meal.
Whether you're ordering a baker's dozen or just one for yourself, why not treat yourself to a childhood favorite and warm up a fresh blueberry bagel with plenty of butter? This pairing will transport you back in time and give you that sense of nostalgia you're known for loving.

Virgo: Asiago Cheese Bagel
You're a lover of routine, Virgo, and as a result, you tend to rise early and at the same time.

Scorpio: Marble Rye Bagel
You're a complex character, Scorpio. And if we're being honest, you're more of a night owl than a morning person. Your drive and ambition are intense, and you'll stay up to get things done. Some might call it obsessive, but you think of yourself as passionate and focused.
