Reply Cassie October 22nd, 2008 I hate celery, refuse to eat…. Reply Meg October 22nd, 2008 I dislike both, but celery has the worst texture. It’s crunchy and stringy and water-y. Keep the carrots, but only so I can continue to eat the Tuna Melt from Cosi. Reply JT October 22nd, 2008 On the nutrition scale, no contest. Gotta go with carrots. Reply marit October 22nd, 2008 gaah!! i hate celery with a passion. it just tastes vile! carrots on the other hand are jummy. Reply Youppi October 22nd, 2008 can’t understand anyone taking celery over carrots. what about carrot juice, soup, cake, sticks? celery you get for wings, soup filler and putting cream cheese in (barf!). Reply Grimace October 22nd, 2008 Carrot soup?!? What?!?! I need celery for my tunafish. I need carrots for nothing other than split pea soup and that can go carrot-less (i’ll use extra celery.) Plus – celery salt. Reply Hillary October 22nd, 2008 Carrots trump celery by far! Reply Eick October 22nd, 2008 BTW, I’m weighing in here with Celery. Carrots blow. Soups and stews? Carrots are easily replaceable by something else. I NEED my celery with wings, and celery in chicken salad is essential. Plus, the classic childhood snack “Ants on a Log” (celery sticks with peanut butter & raisins). I can’t think of the last time I actually wanted to eat a carrot. Reply Chef Mike October 22nd, 2008 Heh, I was thinking blue cheese and celery with my wings, but you beat me to it! Reply Cary October 23rd, 2008 eick, I couldn’t disagree with you more. as Youppi pointed out, carrots are multi-faceted and adaptable to many important dishes (curries, soups, stews). The celery is so one-dimensional it hurts. If the two were comedic actors, celery would be Hugh Grant to carrot’s Peter Sellers. And don’t give me that anti-soup garbage. You people are obviously insane. Reply Caroline December 16th, 2008 My school sells Wraps, they used to have Celery and Carrots. Now only two sticks or more of Carrots. So me verdict is…Carrots are the Best : D Reply Megan January 22nd, 2009 although no nutritional value… celery has NO calories and can be dressed up with anything. also helps (believe it or not) to add great flavor to many cooked meals… casseroles & soups. ever used celery seed? keep your carrots raw, or cooked & mushy.
