Life of Pi (taters) – A Starch Reality
Don’t ask me why, but I was doing some research on potatoes and learned of the difficult and interesting lives of taters.
Taters are born into litters of 15 to 20. The crunchy newborns, or “tots” battle a host of natural predators from school lunch ladies to trendy pubs to Ore-Ida. Most are rounded up, individually frozen, fried in oil and served as side dishes. The survivors face steep odds. A mere 1 in 5 tater tots will grow up to be tater teens and only 1 in 10 of those will qualify for Potato Head Start programs.
