So I am sitting at my desk eating some baby carrots and all of a sudden... One of them tastes HORRIBLE!!! Does anybody else ever get this? I swear there's always one carrot that I have to spit out. Why? They don't look rotten, but boy they taste nasty...

OMG! I have always wondered the same thing! I don't have an answer but I'm glad I'm not the only one lol!

Lol that is freaky! I brought a whole bag to work with me today because the new lady in front of me munches on cheetos all day. I thought the baby carrots kinda sound and look like cheetos so I'd give them a shot lol!

That's why I stopped buying baby carrots!!! I buy old-school carrots, peel them, & cut them up myself. I think they taste better.

Some are baby-CUT carrots and are rinsed in chlorine.

Yuck.

Rousseau baby carrots are always sweet and fresh. :)

Hmmm very interesting! I have the actual baby carrots though they don't seem to be soaked in any chlorine, but I did buy the petite carrots once and did not like them, this is probably why, yuck!

Exactly. That's why we don't do baby carrots; we peel and cut up large ones.

Not all baby carrots are in fact baby carrots...some are big carrots cut to look like baby carrots..

It's the chlorine solution they are soaked in to preserve them, yuk !

I do too!!! This isn't why I stopped buying baby carrots though...I stopped because the whole carrots are cheeper and if I have to take the time to peel them, wash them, and cut them..wellll..I usually don't eat as many (and you have the added benefit of feeling like a giant bunny..but that may be the Kindergarten teacher in me! ha!)
