I don’t know if you know this, but tater tots are hot right now. In fact, to quote 7-Eleven director of fresh food Robin Murphy, “Tots are hot,” and since you now have two people saying that you know it must be true. What is also true is that 7-Eleven is now installing tater tot bars in participating stores, so you know what that means: there are now tater totcho bars probably right down your street.Read More
It's that time of year again, time for Nachonomics to hit the road and peddle its nacho wares!
Should you happen to be out in Massachusetts' Pioneer Valley (Namely South Hadley, Saturday, April 21st) stop by Plains Elementary at 267 Granby St. between 9:30am and 3pm for Craft Fest! Mother's Day is May 13th, and what would a better gift be than a set of nacho books? 4/20 is the day before, and marijuana is legal in Massachusetts, so we all know that you'll probably be pretty hungry on Saturday, perhaps for some nachos? Or maybe you just need a nacho shirt for you works annual Company Nacho Party. Any reason for nachos is acceptable, we won't judge. Hope you can make it!

I knew I had written about their excellent breakfast nachos before. I searched the ol’ Nachonomics for my previous review and saw that EXACTLY TWO YEARS AGO TODAY I reviewed their breakfast nachos. It can be nothing but fate that today I review their regular nachos.Read More
I have a horrifying and shameful secret to reveal: sometimes when I eat spicy food my tum tum hurts. There used to be a time when I was known as “The Cast-Iron Stomach” and could eat a whole platter of Buffalo Calamari with a side of jalapenos any time of day without a second thought, but those days are long over. Now if I want to think about eating nachos after 8 pm I better have some Tums ready because my guts are going to be an acid bath. I thought they’d be ok if I went to The Compass Tavern for lunch, but then I saw their nachos.Read More
