YORKTOWN, 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: Want to spell out “Happy 50th Birthday!” or “Congrats!” for your next big party? JV makes bagels in the shape of letters and numbers, not to mention ahhh-inspiring hearts. They can even do Mickey Mouse, or other cartoon characters. There are, of course, all sorts of varieties in traditional shapes.
Crazy Flavors: Nothing wild, but fresh and warm bagels in classic plain, egg, onion, and cinnamon raisin. A few spreads such as veggie-scallion and olive-pimento also come in “lite” versions. Multi-colored rainbow bagels are now on the menu, too.
Reminder: The contest ends Monday, April 25 at 5 p.m. You can vote multiple times, albeit once per day.
