Tater tots are deep-fried grated potatoes shaped into tiny cylinders that are commonly served as a side dish. The phrase “tater tot” is a registered trademark of Ore-Ida, a frozen food manufacturer based in the United States. However it is frequently used as a generic term. Potato is abbreviated as “tater.”

F. Nephi Grigg and Golden Grigg, owners of the American frozen food business Ore-Ida, came up with the idea for tater tots in 1953 while attempting to figure out what to do with leftover slivers of cut-up potatoes. They diced up the slivers, mixed in flour and salt, and then pushed the mash through perforations, slicing off portions of the extruded mixture. Tater Tots came to be. In 1956, the product was initially commercially available in shops.

The phrase “Tater Tot” is a registered trademark of Ore-Ida, a Heinz subsidiary, since 1965, but it has become so synonymous with the meal that it is frequently used as a generic term. Potato is abbreviated as “tater.” A member of the Ore-Ida company’s research committee came up with the name “Tater Tot” in the 1950s, and it was quickly patented. Who utilized a thesaurus to come up with an alliterative name.

The product was initially relatively low-cost; according to advertising lectures at Iowa State University, consumers did not buy it since there was no perceived value. People started buying it when the price was hiked. Tater Tots are consumed in the United States at a rate of around 70,000,000 pounds (32,000,000 kg) each year, or 3,710,000,000 Tots.

Recently, several vegetable businesses (such as Green Giant) have created “veggie tots,” which aim to replace potatoes with more nutritionally rich veggies (e.g., broccoli and cauliflower).

Ross Frozen Foods used to make “Oven Crunchies” in the United Kingdom. However, they are no longer available.

In the Netherlands and Germany, rösti is a similar dish. Prepackaged frozen-food rösti are tiny disks akin to tater tots, whereas traditional Swiss rösti is a big, flat cakelike meal.

McCain Foods Limited names its product “Tasti Taters” in Canada.

Tater tots are popular in school lunch counters and cafeterias in the United States. They’re also available in grocery shops frozen food departments. They are also available at certain fast-food establishments.

Safeway supermarkets carry a generic brand of tater tots called “Tater Treats.” “Spud Puppies” is the name of Cascadian Farm’s line. On the normal menu at Sonic drive-in, tater tots are offered with cheddar and chili as toppings. Sonic also serves “Cheesy Tots,” which are coin-shaped potato and cheese tots.

Several eateries in the Pacific Northwest provide “totchos,” a nacho-style variation of tots topped with nacho cheese sauce and toppings. Jim Parker, a publican in Portland, Oregon, developed the Totcho.

Taco Time and Seor Frog’s sell seasoned potato tots under the names “Mexi-Fries” and “Border Fries,” respectively, while Taco Bell used to sell them as “Mexi-Nuggets” and “Border Fries.” “Potato Locos” is spherical disc-shaped tater tots served at Taco Mayo in the Southwest. Taco John’s also sells “Potato Olés,” which are coin-shaped tots.
