Tater Tots in American cuisine are pieces of deep-fried, grated potatoes served as a side dish. They are recognized for their cylindrical shape and crispy exterior. “Tater Tots” is a registered trademark of Ore-Ida (a division of the Heinz Company) that is often used as a generic term. In Australia, they are known as “potato gems”, “potato royals” or “potato pom-poms” (also used in New Zealand). In the United Kingdom, Ross Frozen Foods once produced “oven crunchies” which are no longer available. In Canada, McCain Foods calls its line “Tasti Taters”. Cascadian Farm calls its line “Spud Puppies”. The New Zealand Pizza Hut franchise offers “Hash Bites” as a side dish with an aioli dipping sauce.
