Question
Are Thomas bagels mezonot?
Answer
ב"ה Shalom I an not familiar with the product, but from the ingredients which I have seen on the internet, I did not notice any sugar or fruit juices added so it would seem to me that they are Hamotzi. Furthermore , even if would be sweet, if the bagel is something that you make a meal out of, the proper Bracha is Hamotzi., even for a Sefaradi , unless the Sefaradi has a specific family custom not to make Hamotzi on sweetened bread. (See Pininei Halacha- Berachot Chapter 6) All the best
