Disney Garden Carrots and Ranch Dip Review

Reviewed by Tanya Jackson | Dec 14, 2008

Disney Garden Carrots and Ranch DipDisney is creatively using their characters appeal to attract children (and adults) to healthy eating through fruits and vegetables through their Disney Garden Products initiaive. I love having fruits and veggies pre-packaged, washed and ready to go since I'm more likely to eat them and grab them on my way out the door. To help Mickey and Friends spread the word on convenient healthy eating, I opted to review Disney Garden Carrots and Ranch Dip which features the characters from the movie Cars.

The carrots are small and thin (as opposed to big, fat ones that sometimes make their way into the baby carrot world). The ranch dip is actually a ranch dressing, and tastes like ... ranch dressing. I double dipped about 3/4 of my little bag of carrots (the other 1/4 just got a single dunk) and had just enough dressing. As you may infer, the dressing cup is a bit on the small side; then again, so are the carrots, so they complement each other nicely.

The small, yet tasty addition of ranch dressing does not drag down the nutrition stats of these carrot packs one bit. Each bag of carrots, accompanied by a 0.5 ounce cup of dressing, provides only 45 calories, 1.5 grams of total fat (2% of the RDA), no saturated fat, 5 mg of cholesterol (2% of the RDA), 135 mg of sodium (6% of the RDA), 2 grams of fiber (8% of the RDA), 4 grams of sugar and 4 grams of protein. Also, the notoriously nutritious carrots provide 90% of the RDA for Vitamin A. The low-fat ranch dip contains a lot of ingredients (as you would expect), but it is certainly just an enhancer, not the main show.

The price is a bit steep. I paid $3.25 for 5, 2.25oz packets of carrots and dressing. If having cute characters on the packaging makes your child (or you), eat more vegetables, then the price is well worth it.
