Einstein Noah’s Brews Up Holiday Spirit

Einstein Bros. Bagels and Noah’s New York Bagels announced the addition of new seasonal menu items that feature flavors of warm cinnamon and spices, in addition to new promotions for the most wonderful time of year. The selection of new menu offerings include Cinnamon Cream Cheese, Cinnamon Toast Egg Panini, and a Cranberry Turkey Panini, in addition to seasonally inspired beverages Winter Blend Coffee, Cinnamon Caramel Latte, and Cookie Crumble Latte. The limited-time menu is available at all restaurants nationwide through January 1.

“The holidays are a time to celebrate with friends and family, so we are excited to debut fresh, new menu items inspired by warm flavors of cinnamon and seasonal spices that not only complement our broad menu options but elicit the emotions of togetherness and holiday tradition,” says Glenn Lunde, chief concept officer of Einstein Noah Restaurant Group. “At Einstein Noah, we take pride in continuous menu innovation to meet the needs of our guests, so we hope they savor our latest offerings that we believe are our greatest holiday lineup yet.”

Guests can top bagel with Einstein Noah’s new double-whipped Cinnamon Cream Cheese that adds a sweet cinnamon flavor. The Cinnamon Toast Egg Panini is a blend of sweet and savory with egg, bacon, melted Cheddar cheese, and a cinnamon-butter blend, grilled and served on a Cinnamon Raisin Bagel. The Cranberry Turkey Panini is a fusion of traditional Thanksgiving flavors, featuring turkey, house-made cranberry sauce, double-whipped plain Shmear, melted Swiss and Mozzarella cheeses, spinach, and bacon on grilled Ciabatta bread.

Einstein Bros. and Noah’s are offering their signature Winter Blend Coffee that combines a mix of vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg flavors. This seasonal coffee is available in both drip and retail packages for customers looking to enjoy in the comfort of their own home. For the latte lover, seasonal latte flavors include the Cinnamon Caramel Latte and the Cookie Crumble Latte. The Cookie Crumble Latte is topped with whipped cream and snickerdoodle cookie. Both holiday lattes are available hot, iced, or frozen.

For every $25 gift card purchased between Wednesday, November 13, and Tuesday, December 31, guests will receive a $5 bonus card, valid from January 1, 2014, through February 28, 2014.
