Review: Ore Ida's Hot Bites was one of the sponsors of the 2001 X Games (think skateboarding, snowboarding and other sports taken to extremes you never thought possible). If you have an X Games fan at home, you'll want to snap up these frozen snacks. They're just the thing to keep an active guy or gal going. The line includes mini pizzas, mini hot dogs wrapped in Tater Tots and mini calzones. For snack fare, they're pretty good. We tried the sausage, pepperoni and cheese flavor Li'L Calzonies and the cheese Deep Dish Mini's. They easily staved off our hunger pangs 'til supper.
