I recently saw an article in the Chicago Tribune titled ‘All hail the baby carrot’ from January 15, 2016.

The article speaks to the creation of the baby carrot. Now, I must admit that I thought it was going to be an article about a genetically engineered product that is outselling the real thing. I had never thought about the origin of the baby carrot. It turns out that the little healthy snacks are not grown in 2” pods that force them to grow into a smooth bite size nugget. Although we both know that neither of us would be surprised if that was true.
