Another post Super Bowl snack. It’s similar to Irish Nachos. Tater Tots, a registeredtrademarkofOre-Ida(a division of theH. J. Heinz Company), are fried slices of potatoes. Tater Tots werecreated in 1953 when the Ore-Ida founders were trying to figure out what to do with leftover slivers of cut-up potatoes. They chopped up the slivers, added flour and seasoning, then pushed the mash through holes and sliced off pieces of the extruded mixture.The product was first offered in stores in 1956. Originally, the product was very inexpensive. Apparently, people did not buy it at first because there was no perceived value. When the price was raised, people began buying it.
