Carrots and nuts

Ok so this is a weird one. Whenever I give my son raw carrots or nuts, he does this weird momma-bird-squirrel thing. What I mean is he chews them up but then won't swallow it for like a half hour or more. He just walks around/plays with it stored away in his mouth. It's really strange. Has anyone else run into something like this with the same or different food items? He's taking the carrots and/or nuts of his own volition so I don't think it's because he doesn't like them. So weird...

    Yes, a couple of mine have done that too and I just assumed it was taking them a long time to chew it all up.
