    Default why can't you buy just one carrot?

    really what if that's all you want? it doesn't seem right to have to buy 10 when all you're going to use is one

    Some vegetables you can buy just one like potatoes or green peppers. But I've never seen that option for carrots- its always the whole bag or nothing. I live alone, I only buy groceries for myself and I often feel like I'm wasting food because I can't or don't want to eat all of it before it goes bad. Not just carrots but many other things that come packaged in bags or boxes.

    Why only one carrot? That doesn't seem like enough for just one person. They do last one to two weeks in the refrigerator. Possibly longer if you purchase containers meant to preserve them.

    I'd imagine it's a similar sentiment to "why not buy just a crisp" instead of a bag of crisps.

    Depends where you're shopping. Some bigger chain stores, especially ones selling international products, usually have a grocery selection area where you could pick and choose what you want.
    In Europe it is a common rule to be allowed to pick and select as many items of the one product you want.
