Burger King Is Bringing Back Cheesy Tater Tots

Back by popular demand, just in time to make your winter bright and carb-filled, are the Burger King cheesy tater tots.The limited-edition winter menu item had gone on hiatus in 2013, and now they're back for this year's holiday season thanks to increasingly loud requests over social media.

"Fans have been craving the return of cheesy tots for some time now," Alex Macedo, president of Burger King North America, said in a statement. "So we wanted to give loyalists a holiday surprise after we heard so many of their requests. Now they'll be able to warm up to these cozy cheese and potato bites this holiday season."

The original cheesy tots were stuffed with bacon pieces but it looks like this iteration might be vegetarian. 

The tots will be available throughout the holiday season for just $1.99 for a snack-sized eight-piece order as part of the lunch or dinner menu.
