During the 19th century, American English slang gained popularity, and 'tater' became a widely recognized colloquialism for potato. It was embraced by individuals across various regions, especially in rural areas and farming communities where potatoes were a staple crop.
In the early 20th century, the tater tot was invented by Ore-Ida, a frozen potato product company. The term 'tater' was prominently used in the product's name, further solidifying the association of the word with potatoes in the public consciousness.
In 1926, Ore-Ida introduced tater tots to the commercial market, marking a pivotal moment in the popularization of the term 'tater.' The product quickly gained fame and popularity, leading to the widespread use of the term to refer to various potato dishes.

It showcases the evolution of language and how slang terms can become deeply rooted in cultural identity. From everyday conversations to menu descriptions, 'tater' continues to be a familiar and endearing term across the United States and beyond.
