St. Louis bagels finally have the support they've been waiting for. 

Philadelphia Cream cheese is sticking with the St. Louis-style slice and gave their full support on Twitter:

We don't just stand with St. Louis, we slice with St. Louis! Today, we're launching our latest schmear, #StLouisStyle. One brick. Ten slices. Yeah, we’re going there. Find us in the dairy aisle. #Bagelgate #ItMustBeThePhilly

Last week, a St. Louis man named Alex Krautmann shared a photo of two boxes of Panera bagels that were sliced vertically like a loaf of bread - a technique Krautmann dubbed a "St. Louis secret."

This method "allows for smaller, easy-to-consume portions that will toast quickly and are more shareable." But most people - especially New Yorkers - hated it. 

And "St. Louis style" food became a big trend:

Today we're eating our cookies St. Louis style❗
