Finagle a Bagel, the Newton restaurant chain, said it is adding something called "Bagel Sliders" to its menu.
The sliders are miniature versions of the chain's plain bagels. Sliders are 1.25 ounces each, the company said. According to the Finagle website, many of its traditional bagels weigh in at 4 ounces. (The photo of the sliders that appears with this post was included with Finagle's press release.)
Sliders are packed four to a box and sell for $2.99, Finagle said.
Finagle is expanding its menu as some consumers are cutting down on restaurant visits because of the tough economy and many fast-food restaurant chains are aggressively promoting their value menu items.
