History of National Tater Tot Day

National Tater Tot Day was first celebrated in 2009. It started by the food writers as an effort to fill out their copy quota, and after they put it on his Twitter, it was an immediate hit. In 1953, Tater Tot was created when Ore-Ida founders Golden Grigg and F. Nephi Grigg were thinking about what to do with leftover pieces of cut-up potatoes. Then, they decided to chop the pieces, adding seasoning and flour. Then, they pushed the mash through holes and cut off pieces of the mixture. Tater Tot was first served in stores in 1956. Americans consume about 70 million tons every year. Actually, in the American school system, Tater Tots happen to be the most famous side dish.
