On National Bagel Day, this specialty food delivers flavorful surprises

In honor of January 15th — National Bagel Day, a special day to pay homage to a favorite breakfast and lunch food — "Fox & Friends Weekend" shared a few tasty morsels of information about the popular bagel.

"We have bagels, cragels and flagels," said co-host Will Cain, about the spread that was arranged in front of them.

Co-owner Sam Kaplan of Brooklyn's Bagel Point — along with bagel roller Angel Lucero — were guests of the program to share their creations.
