So, my dear friend Patty Dee was turning me on to a new food.  Well, at least new to me.  She was telling me about 'Broccoli Tots'.

I'm a fan of the Tot.  I love Tots.  Ya have yer Tater Tot Hotdish, Mac & Cheese w/ Tots, Taco Tater Tot Casserole, Tater Tot Nachos, Tater Tot Grilled Cheese, Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots, Baked Tater Tot Dip, Tater Jalapeno Poppers, oh...sorry...went all 'Forest Gump' there.

Anyway, when Patty told me about 'Broccoli Tots' I figured this is great!  Finally, a Tot that's good for you and low in calories.

Not so much.  Check out this disappointment available in the frozen food aisle.  Turns out a 'Broccoli Tot' has about 18 calories, while your run of the mill Tater Tot has about 17 calories.  Well crap...

There real question here is: if they can grow a human ear on a mouse, why can't they invent a calorie free Tot?
