Ore-Ida Extra Crispy Easy Tater Tots Crispy Crowns!

Rating: 6 out of 10
Pros: Decent fried potato flavor. Easy to prepare. Inexpensive. Enough to share with someone. Gluten free. Crisping tray does a good job at making them crispy.
Cons: I don’t know if I’d consider them “extra crispy.” Some might find a condiment is necessary when eating them. Is the exclamation point really necessary? Made with partially hydrogenated oil, which means it has less than 0.5 grams of trans fat. Crispy Crowns? More like Crispy Rounds. Inconsistent cooking; some had a crispy exterior and fluffy interior, but some has dried up interiors. Three and a half minutes seem kind of long for just tater tots.

  1. I agree with this review for the most part. I bought two boxes of these, expecting to be as pleasantly surprised as I was with the fries and the breakfast potatoes (where did those go?), but I was let down.

    Neither box was great. VERY uneven cooking and none were crispy. I even cooked the second box a minute longer, but alas, no luck. The insides were dry and overly starchy.

    With ketchup, they were decent, but nothing I will buy again.
