The “Pink Ribbon Bagel” is a trademarked product of the Panera Bread franchise, with a trademark date of September 2001. Panera Bread states that the bagel (in the shape of a ribbon) is made with “cherry chips, dried cherries and cranberries, vanilla, honey and brown sugar.” A portion of the sales of the pink ribbon bagel goes to breast cancer charities.
The Susan G. Komen Foundation is credited with handing out the first pink ribbons to participants in a New York City “Race for the Cure” in 1991.

The pink ribbon is an international symbol of breast cancer awareness. Pink ribbons, and the color pink in general, identify the wearer or promoter with the breast cancer brand and express moral support for women with breast cancer.
Pink ribbons are most commonly seen during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The first known use of a pink ribbon in connection with breast cancer awareness was in the fall of 1991, when the Susan G. Komen Foundation handed out pink ribbons to participants in its New York City race for breast cancer survivors.
The pink ribbon was adopted as the official symbol of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month the next year, in 1992. The pink ribbon was derived from the popular red ribbon for AIDS awareness. Alexandra Penney, the editor-in-chief of the women’s health magazine Self, and breast cancer survivor Evelyn Lauder, the senior corporate vice president at the cosmetics company Estée Lauder created a ribbon for the cosmetics giant to distribute in stores in New York City.
