COMPOSITION

    beet

    Beet is a root vegetable, which means it grows underground alongside its colleagues, potato and carrot. It’s colored an extremely saturated red (beet red) and is generally boiled for preparation. Beets saw a rise in popularity after a successful marketing campaign that featured the quip “the incredible, edible beet.”

    Taste
    Beets, though not very flavorful, taste good. Their intense color helps make up for some of this shortcoming.

    beet became an official snack on April 21st, 2012.
