Baby carrot is a tiny carrot
with no skin. Sometimes the carrot is harvested early, and sometimes a large carrot is just cut down to resemble a younger carrot.
Baby carrot is good, but never seems to catch on as a “junk food” alternative due to the fact that it lacks the addictive qualities of salt
. It is commonly mixed with things like raw broccoli
, which is somewhat unfair because it’s considerably better than those.
