Oh, thank heaven for 7-Eleven!  From Slurpees to Big Gulps to a slice of pizza at 2 a.m., anyone lucky enough to have a 7-Eleven store nearby can always count on it to have just what you need… when you need it most. And now, the convenience store chain’s menu is adding tater tots.

7-Eleven just unveiled a “top-your-own-tots” bar for the tot-lover in all of us.

Participating 7-Eleven locations are now offering tater tots and the ability to customize them with up to 10 nacho-like toppings, in addition to ketchup and mustard. Each store varies, but toppings you may find include chili sauce, melted cheese, pico de gallo, diced onions, sliced jalapeno peppers, green relish and pickles.

Of course, nothing beats tater tots and ranch dressing, and “yes”… ranch dressing will be there, too.
