Did you know that we Americans consume more carrots than any other people in the world? It’s true. On average, each of us consumes 11.5 pounds of these orange root veggies a year. And, due to either an intriguing affinity for sunshine-hued foods or an increased focus on healthful eating, that consumption is on the rise. Pretty good for a vegetable that was originally cultivated for its seeds and leaves, rather than the sweet roots we now enjoy.
In light of these statistics, we’'e done our part to make enjoying carrots even more palatable. Trader Joe's Organic Cut & Peeled Carrots are crunchy, sweet carrots that have been cut to "baby" size, peeled and washed; so, they’re ready to eat right out of the bag. They're grown in California’s San Joaquin Valley, the heart of American carrot production, and they're processed within hours of harvest. Fresh, nutritious, convenient and a great value at just $1.49* for a 16 ounce bag. What's up, doc? A great value; that's what. Even Mr. Fudd would agree.
