Burger King will look to tap into the popularity of an old favorite to light a flame under slowing U.S. sales as this year draws to a close.
"Cheesy Tots," which are small fried balls filled with cheese and potatoes, were re-launched by the Restaurant Brands International (QSR) fast-food chain in several markets in California recently, TheStreet learned (video and photos below). The company confirmed the glorified tater tot will debut next month at $1.99 for an eight-piece order.

It's easy to see why Burger King is looking into its product vault for old winners.
