I have this vivid memory from when I was little which involved carrots. My aunt was just as much of a health nut as I am.

Every time I’d be with her I’d always see her chewing on this HUGE giant carrot. Then one day, she finally gave me my own 🙂 I remember feeling so “adult-like” to have my own carrot. Ha!

Fast forward years later, here I am wanting to eat some favorite childhood snacks!
So, here it is! Continue reading
