Recently the New York Bakery introduced Mini Bagels (see review) and now Kingsmill have introduced their ‘Bagel Thins’. Each bagel has 122 calories compared with 231 calories for the regular sized bagel.
As I’m writing this, they are only available as white, so no wholemeal or seedy types yet. Although I try to avoid buying white, unrefined food, I picked up a pack of these as my family do enjoy eating bagels.

I made up some bagels for lunch one day, half toasted and half not.

They taste like regular bagels so are probably best eaten untoasted if you're after the regular bagel texture.
Personally, I think the Warburtons mini bagels are a better idea as they’re fatter and they keep their texture inside when toasted. They have a similar number of calories to the Kingsmill Bagel thins, ranging between 114-119 per bagel. However, there isn't as much room to pile in any fillings.
By far my favourite ‘Thins’ bread type food are Warburtons Sandwich Thins (see reviews):

I especially love the seeded variety which is often difficult to find. They now have another new variety called Half & Half which is made with 50% wholegrain and 50% white flour and still with 100 calories per thin.
