Are you a true blue Tim Tam-er?
Everyone who is already here in Australia would have to know what a Tim-Tam is, right? For those of you who don’t know, a Tim Tam is Australia’s favourite biscuit (or cookie, if you prefer).
You can buy Tim Tam’s pretty much everywhere here in Australia — at the supermarket, the newsagency and at petrol stations. They also come in many, many, many different flavours — Original, Double Coat, Chewy Caramel, Classic Dark, White Chocolate, Sweet Surrender Choc Hazelnut Mousse, CrÃ¨me Caramel, Honeycomb, the list goes on…
So, whilst you may know what a Tim Tam is, have you heard of a Tim Tam Slammer? A Tim Tam Slammer is popular way of drinking through a Tim Tam — yes, DRINKING!!
So, for those of you who are interested in giving this a go here’s what you do:
Putting your Tim Tams in the fridge before trying a Tim Tam Slammer helps to preserve the outside coating while letting the inside of the biscuit dissolve into a warm, creamy centre.
The thick chocolate coating on the Double Coat Tim Tam offers a more “stable” biscuit to prevent an early collapse — good for beginners, perhaps?
The caramel centre of the Chewy Caramel Tim Tam helps to maintain the structural integrity of the biscuit for a slightly longer time, contributing to enhanced enjoyment.
