Honorable mentions go out to David Daniel (who notes it is indeed "Tough to find in California, but I console myself at the beach" then also adds "typical NYT skewed view: California = much more than just San Francisco"), Lauren Weaver (who adds "May the battle of the bagels officially be explained. #JerseyBagelsarethebest"), Jeanne Kirk (who theorizes "everyone knows it is the NY water"), Carrie Gray, Thomas Feyer (who advises Californians to simply "Come to New York!"), Edward Tenner, Julie Jarratt, Kelly Doyle, Ron Casalotti (who points out "You need: NYC water; NYC seasoned wood planks; NYC exp. bakers, & a schmear"), Dan Rosenbaum (who reveals he is "visiting LA from Bklyn today, and it's true"), Debkrol (who suggests "Something in the CA air causes right coasters to lose bagel-making smarts"), Bailey McGowan (who reflects "What a shame"), Hal Davis (who nearly didn't guess because he thought a bagel might be "too cliché") and Mark Gibbs for all getting that exactly right, as well. Shout out to John D'anna, who responded, "Just spitballing here, but I'm gonna go with 'normal people.'"
