I see more than four...

Wow! I never knew. I thought all carrots were orange.

Is it me or does the slow reading voice sound a bit like "gulerøtter" (with an extra "e"-sound inserted there)?

Yes, and it's actually quite common to add a soft 'e' in between the two words that make up this compound. Perhaps not enunciated quite as clearly as the TTS does here, but it's not far off either.

Bit ironic... isn't gulrøtter literally "yellow roots"?

They didnt used to be all orange.

They are orange now because of Dutch patriotism.
