Just like Zumba and 40 mpg cars, sweet potatoes are one of the trendiest items out there right now.  Long known as the baked potato’s sassy, step sister, sweet potato fries have emerged as a very popular item in grocery stores and full service restaurants.  Sonic Drive-In has bridged the gap to the fast food world with their newest creation: Sweet Potato Tots.
Personally, I love tossing some salt onto sweet potato fries, and tricking the crap out of my tongue with a salty, sweet pile driver.  The idea of humanizing sweet potatoes into tator tot objects has me greatly interested.  Sonic is advertising these guys as a sweet, salty, hot and crispy treat, making either a great snack or upgrade to one of their combos.  We’ll do everything we can to get our hands on these sweet spuds.
