Black carrots, man

I was at the Big Supermarket the other night, and they had purple carrots. At least they called them purple, they were actually black. I tried to trick the boys into eating them with their eyes shut, and then opening them – but they twigged that something was afoot. Nobody does that with carrots.

Someone else's black carrots
Review: They are pretty amazing visually. They are black right through. Not very crisp or juicy though. They tasted like carrots probably tasted in the 17th century - like slightly carroty cardboard, with overtones of dirt. Probably best for a once-off freakout or for emo kids who still won't eat their vegies. I laughed, I cried. D+

In retrospect, hats off to whoever thought of orange.
