Tater tots are good but they're never something that I crave. If they happen to come into my life I will eat them happily.

I agree with this - they're good and I'll eat them whenever an opportunity presents itself, but yeah it's never something I actually crave. In the words of George Bush from the Simpsons: "Mmmm, good tots. Good, not great."

Also, I see some other people ITT calling tots 'potato gems'. I was gonna ask, are there any other weird and/or regional names for tots, that you goons have encountered? I've heard a bunch of people calling tots gems of course, but I've also heard some sorry sap call tots 'spud bites', of all things!

sure okay

This is very true. Tots were originally cheap to buy, because they were cheap to make, being shaving leftovers and all.

But no one was buying them because of percieved value, so Ore-Ida raised the price to fry levels and they started selling better

I don't like tater tots that much they are always soggy in the middle like when you go to waffle house and the cook that's making your hash browns is coming down off molly always make sure to get there early enough that they are peaking on molly but not so early that you miss out on the multiple domestic disturbancesat 3:00 am

My local grocery sells tater tots that have minced onion mixed up with the minced potato bits in them.

I did not read the package the first time I bought them so they were a Delightful Surprise to discover.

Tots are amazing in a local specialty known as a garbage plate.

Before I came to know TATER KEG

I once made a tater tot hot dish, a festive delicacy from the great northern land of Minnesota I now call home



Some might call it a casserole, but it's a hot dish.

Non-obvious combination that's actually killer: saag paneer or bhindi masala over tater tots.

Don't worry, I'll give you a sign. The sign will be that life is awesome

I moved to The Netherlands about 5 years ago and after I got used to living here I went around searching for tots to no avail. There are tot-like things but no tots.

I found a restaurant in Amsterdam that served "tader todds" with some form of a cheese sauce but they were some sort of bullshit potato dumpling and not a real tot.

If I made tater tots with a hole in the middle so they cook faster and more evenly, what should I call them? Tater Tubes? Tater Tooots?

I'm saving Tater Torus for the onion ring shaped and flavored variant.
