New York Style Bagel Crisps and the New York Style Bagel Snack Star Sweepstakes

Every time we even talk about entertaining, I have grand aspirations of channeling my inner party planner. Ideas swirl in my head that include elaborate decorations, a refined menu, and an agenda that runs smoothly from start to finish.

In reality? Decorations are usually non-existent and just about anything goes with the agenda. But the food? Well, that's an easy one. Instead of anything too unusual, I know that the way to satisfy guests young and old is to keep things simple. Tasty finger foods that folks can pile on a plate (and return to get more of) again and again. Now that's the way to happiness!

Which is why I know that New York Style Mini and Original Bagel Crisps offer an easy, versatile appetizer that guests are sure to enjoy.

New York Style Mini Bagel Crisps satisfy your cravings without the guilt, as the Mini morsels with mighty flavor have 50% less fat and 18% fewer calories than leading potato chips. At the same time, these tasty Crisps make a perfect light and crunchy snack for guests this summer, as they are delicious on their own or "dressed up" with something more.

Looking to transform Original Bagel Crisps into a delectable, easy to make appetizer? Here's the list of  topping ideas I've come up with to use New York Style Bagel Crisps for our next gathering:
  • Fruit
  • Hummus
  • Sliced cheese
  • Spreadable cheese
  • Cream cheese
  • Pesto
  • Salsa
  • Peanut butter
  • Sour cream and chives
  • Sliced cucumber
  • Mozzarella, basil and sliced cherry tomatoes
Considering how much we've been enjoying the salty crunch of the New York Style Original and Mini Bagel Crisps, I have yet to make it through my list of topping ideas... but am going to try!

If munching on tasty snacks wasn't enough this season, New York Style has also paired up with Stacy Keibler to launch the New York Style Bagel Snack Star Sweepstakes to give one lucky fan the opportunity to win a red carpet movie experience with their friends and family!

That's right! Along with Stacy's tips on staying red carpet ready with the help of New York Style Mini Bagel Crisps and Original Bagel Crisp, one lucky grand prize winner will get the chance to rent out a local theater with 50 of their friends to have their own red carpet experience! Along with this private, photographed, and catered event, the winner will receive a gift card for a year supply ($500 worth) of movie tickets.

The Bagel Snack Star Sweepstakes is only running through September 2, so be sure to head over to the New York Style Facebook page to enter and then connect with them on Twitter as well.

I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of New York Style and received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

While I'm not interested in the movie theater experience, I'm most definitely interested in eating some of those bagel crisps.
