“Why are there donut holes, but not bagel holes?”

"If they make donut holes, why don’t they make bagel holes?” was posted on Twitter on July 6, 2009. “Why are there donut holes but not bagel holes?” was posted on Reddit—Shower Thoughts on September 28, 2015. “Why can’t you buy bagel holes as well doughnut holes?” was posted on Reddit—Shower Thoughts on September 18, 2017.

One answer might be that bagels are made using string of dough, so there are no holes left over.

IF THEY SELL DONUT HOLES, WHERE DO ALL THE BAGEL HOLES GO?

Sidenote: While I was in Dunkin Donuts, I got to thinking about donut holes and smiled to myself as I thought, “Whoever invented donut holes, must’ve been a little like me…doesn’t like wasting food and found a way to make them profitable.” But, then I looked next to the donuts and noticed the bagels…but wait. No bagel holes. Where do all the bagel holes go??? So, this made me want to make my own and find out. After some searching, I found this blog and discovered the answer.

If donut holes are a thing, why aren’t “bagel holes”?

But also, donuts have holes because they are cut into a circle shape, so there’s a leftover “hole”; bagels are made by using a string of dough end to end. See this image.
