A Tribute To The Tim Tam

Tim Tams are undisputedly the world’s greatest chocolate cookie. Australian cookie inventors are brilliant. 

If you are American and haven’t tried them, you HAVE to. But don't get the weird fake version that are being sold in Target and other normal stores, go to a World Market and get the real ones. If you’re Australian and haven’t tried them, you are unAustralian. And as we are in the Olympics and trying to do our country proud, I think it’s time we got a Gold Medal in Tim Tam eating.
Tim Tams help you feel good (how’s that for a marketing slogan?) Tim Tams are chocolate coated cookies; a layer of cookie, followed by a layer of soft chocolate cream, then another layer of chocolate. Doesn’t sound like much, but my goodness, is it ever. What other cookie can you bite off opposing corners and use as a straw to suck hot chocolate through creating a chocolatey, gooey, delicious delight? This, my friends, is called a Tim Tam Slam. Do it. Live it. And if you can, your hot chocolate should be Milo.
I’ve spent many a girl’s night Tim Tam Slamming. In fact I’m doing it right now.
Arnotts Tim Tams. You can get original, double coat, caramel, dark chocolate and a whole range of other flavours. My favourites are the original and double coat. You can’t go past the original. The chocolate goes gooey in your fingers just moments after touching them which means you have a delicious finger or two to lick once the cookie has gone. Tim Tams just keep on giving.
Anyone says no to an offer of a Tim Tam must be out of their mind and should seek help immediately. 


  1. I love the caramel and Joe loves the dark chocolate! We've done some Tim Tam Slamming ourselves! SO yummy. The gold is well deserved. : )

  2. I'm going to have to order me some. Any idea if these on Amazon are authentic?
