Simply Delicious Carrot Creationscan help health-conscious consumers easily incorporate the nutritious benefits of carrots into their diet. Carrots are an excellent source of beta-carotene, which is the most important plant form of vitamin A. Vitamin A supports healthy eyes and skin and helps to protect against infections. Additionally, carrots promote growth and a strong immune system, and contain phytochemicals—colorful plant compounds—that may offer protection from heart disease and certain cancers. One serving of baby carrots (85g; approximately nine medium baby carrots) is a source of over 15 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, vitamin A, vitamin K, potassium, vitamin C, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, and niacin. Carrots are a nutrition powerhouse, providing essential vitamins and minerals along with phytonutrients and fiber that are important for good health.

"Now more than ever consumers are looking for an easy way to make more healthful meals for their families," said Bob Borda, Vice President of Marketing at Grimmway Farms. "By developing flavorful products with our nutrient-packed carrots, we can give consumers new, delicious ways to add vegetables to their plate — with the convenience and value they have come to expect from the Grimmway Farms family."

Grimmway Farms Simply Delicious Carrot Creationsare made with fresh carrots, herbs and spices, and creamy all-natural butter. Through Grimmway Farms' unique product development, simply remove from the refrigerator, heat microwave-safe bag in the microwave for two and a half to three minutes, remove and enjoy (oven instructions are also available). Heating the carrots marinates them in an intense, decadent, flavor-packed sauce.

Grimmway Farms Simply Delicious Carrot Creations are perfect as a nutritious snack or meal accompaniment great for everyday and for holidays. Grimmway Farms Simply Delicious Carrot Creationscome in two delicious and nutritionally-dense varieties: Roasted Garlic & Savory Herb and Honey, Brown Sugar & Cinnamon. These delicious side dishes are only 70 calories per serving and contain 110 percent Vitamin A RDA (Recommended Dietary Allowance), 2g fiber, and 1g protein.

Grimmway Farms Simply Delicious Carrot Creationsare available in October in the refrigerated produce section of major food and mass retail outlets nationwide. Suggested retail price is $2.49 - $2.79 (prices may vary depending on geographic location and retail outlet).
