Did you Know that the first tater tots were made from French fry scraps?
In 1954 the tater tot was made by the Grigg brothers as they came up with an idea of what to do with all the leftover potato scraps when making French fries. The two are now the cofounders of the frozen foods company, Ore-Ida.
The tater tot name is trademarked by the brothers. If a tater tot is not of the brand Ore-Ida, it really isn’t a tater tot. The Grigg brothers created this name after digging through a thesaurus, holding a contest, and relating it to the potato. Although the word is trademarked, it doesn’t stop others from using the same name, but it is not of the original founders without that Ore-Ida name.
