​IRVING, Texas – 7‑Eleven Tots, the newest hot food available at participating 7‑Eleven stores, has a distinct advantage over regular tater tots: 7‑Eleven’s condiment and toppings bar.

Customers can now use condiments for nachos and Big Bite hot dogs to customize their 7‑Eleven tots. Stores offer between six and 10 topping choices in addition to mustard and ketchup. Each store varies, but primary toppings typically found include chili sauce, melted cheese, pico de gallo, diced onion, sliced jalapeno peppers, green relish and pickles. Ranch dressing is also available.

“Tots are hot,” said Robin Murphy, 7‑Eleven director of fresh food. “They’re served up on appetizer menus at trendy bars and restaurants. You can even find tots and topping bars at weddings. 7‑Eleven has its own version of a tot bar for customers to create their own favorite tasty tot concoction. We encourage culinary creativity.”

Made with 100% real Idaho and Oregon potatoes, 7‑Eleven Tots are can be purchased as a side dish, to eat alone or as a snack at any time of day. “I think for many, they’re a guilty pleasure,” said Murphy.
