But here’s a very disturbing fact behind baby carrots you didn’t know. These cute little fellows that were packaged up and sold in supermarkets. These softer, sweeter and overall better version of carrots are not what you think they are. You have been deceived your whole life, and today, we’ll show you the truth behind baby carrots.
Ever wondered why baby carrots are so perfectly shaped with round edges and always peeled? Baby carrots are are actually CUT UP NORMAL SIZE CARROTS! Yes! I know! OMG! Years and years of thinking that these cute little carrots grew up looking like that and realising they were just part of a normal freaking carrot. Here’s how they are being made.
1. The normal boring sized carrots are harvested.
2. Next, they are sorted and chopped into half.
3. Then, machines peel the carrots and cutting it into 2 inches stumps.
4. Lastly, they are packed up and send away to cheat people’s feelings.
Upsetting as it is, this will not stop me from eating these baby carrots. I will still add them in my salads and pack them into my lunch boxes. The only difference is that every time I consume one of this bright orange vegetables, I would think about how I was lied and cheated on for the past many years of my life.
