The CCB&G Dancing Carrots
In light of the four dancing carrots who are helping us with a new promotion on our website (scroll to bottom for details), the four guys took a brief break to sit down for a quick interview with Doug, founder of CCB&G and a personal fan of dancing carrot foursomes.
Doug First off, welcome to the USA and thanks so much for agreeing to help me and the bakers of Columbia County Bread & Granola promote our products.
Derrick You bet. And thanks for having us. We love your granola by the way.
Doug Okay. Cool. Awesome. Thanks.
Boris Love the granola bars. Love them!
Sergei Yah, best snack-along bars ever - in whole world.
Doug That's really appreciated. Thank you. So, guys, how long have you -
Sergei The bread.... eh, maybe different story.
Doug What's that?
Boris Yeah, bread we don't, you know, how you say...? Get it? We don't get it?
Doug Oh. Okay. I guess that's okay. I mean, a lot of people love it so... to each his own, right?
Sergei Is problem - we say - in that you say this bread not made with the flour?
Doug No flour. That's correct. We don't use any flour to make our bread. Or pita for that matter. Or the crisps.
Boris Yes, this is the problem. Nobody make the bread without the flour. Is not possible.
Doug Oh, it's possible. We do it all the time.
Derrick I gotta agree with the guys. The thing is, there's no way you can make bread without flour.
Doug Okay. Fellas.... we can do that. We do do that. It's totally possible. Why don't we talk about something else? Um, like, how long have you all been doing this and how'd you all get together in the first place?
Derrick We met on the circuit - the professional quartet-carrot-line-dancing-circuit - it's more recognized over in Eastern Europe and down thru the Balkans, parts of Ireland and here and there in other parts of the world but, I think, if you're a carrot and you feel you have an innate capacity to shuffle step with a trio of your brother carrots then, well, that's what you do.
Doug Awesome. And you're all from the Ukraine? What's that about?
Derrick Boris and Sergei are from the Ukraine. Marko is from Argentina and -
Marko Go Argentina! We can beat Germany!
Derrick And my name is Derrick and I'm from Detroit.
Doug Michigan? Wow, how did you ever end up -
Derrick Right...? So, it was just one of those weird circumstances where you walk into a situation and you do a little soft step on a dare and it just felt natural and next thing I know, I was spotted by a talent agent and put on a plane to Kiev where I met these guys and we just felt a real camaraderie from the get go. Right, guys?
Boris On the get go. Agreed. But what we don't agree is you make the bread with no flour. This can not happen.
Doug Right. Um. Okay. We can discuss that later, okay? I'll show you how we do it. But for now, why don't we talk about your, you know, your cause? You guys are partly doing this - coming to this country and working with us - to promote your cause. Do you want to talk about that a little bit?
Derrick Yes, thank you. We are here in the United States to create awareness for the plight of little baby carrots.
Boris This is so wrong what they do. With the babies.
Doug Baby carrots. Yes, I get it. It's terrible and I never really thought about it much but you guys are very passionate about this.
Derrick Carrots are like anyone else. We deserve a long healthy life. Not being stripped from their bunch at a tender young age only to be denied all the advantages that we enjoy as hard-working mature carrots.
Doug Okay. I see your position. And what do you have there? What are you showing me?
Derrick I brought you a picture for you to share.... On the left you see a healthy happy baby carrot while on the right you see a couple of baby carrots whose dimples, stalks and divots have been all but shorn or scrubbed off and are now waiting to be packaged then shipped away to who knows where. It's terrible.
Boris Very much terrible.
Doug Yes, I agree. Is there something we can do to help? An organization we can join or, I don't know, make calls to spread awareness on this?
Derrick Yes, thank you. You can visit our facebook page at facebook.com/spare the baby carrots
Doug Okay, we got it. Thank you fellas. This has been fascinating and enlightening at the same time. Happy Dancing!
Boris / Sergei / Marko / Derrick Thanks, yes, we go now to Happy Dance!
