Baby carrots aren't just ordinary carrots cut down to size. Ordinary carrots have a clear orange center that isn't as sweet as the rest of the carrot. If made from regular carrots, baby carrots would consist of mostly the center. They are made from a special variety of carrot that is cut down to the baby carrot size. They're delicious eaten cooked or raw.
