Tater Tots

A tater tot is like a bite-sized hash brown. It’s diced up potato that is deep-fried and delicious. I would place tater tots in the top ten of American comfort foods because of how versatile they are. They can be a side dish or be featured in the main course. You never had a childhood if you never had a tater tot. Tater tots, or tots if you wanna be cool, are the official food of the Midwest. They have tater tot casseroles, tots are an acceptable pizza topping, and tots have even replaced tortilla chips in nachos (creating a dish called totchos). Every broke ass college kid should have a big bag of tots in the freezer. You can’t eat ramen everyday. You should mix it up with potato products and fries are too cliché. Tater tots can go with every meal. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all improved by a simple appearance from the majestic tot. You don’t have to believe me, but you’re missing out if you don’t have tater tots in your life.

CornNuts

CornNuts are a crunchy corn snack made from roasted or deep-fried corn kernels. They are fucking tasty too. If you’ve never had them before, it’s recommended that you go with the Original flavor. Corn is good for you. It’s a vegetable, and veggies are healthy. So if you eat cooked and salted corn kernels, you’re doing your body a favor. As far as junk food and snacks go, this is one of the better options. You can’t eat them all the time, and I’m not sure why you’d want to, but CornNuts are all right by me. They really aren’t healthy for you; I’m not advocating a CornNut diet. But they taste good, and that’s good enough.

Corn Dogs

Corn dogs are my personal favorite deep-fried food on a stick. I think that a lot of people are with me on this one. Hot dogs are good, cornbread is good, combine the two and shove a stick in it, add some mustard and you are good to go. Some people don’t like corn dogs. Some people had a shitty childhood. Corn dogs remind me of carnivals and fairs and summertime. Comfort food is good. Comfort food on a stick is even better.
