I fell in love with these devilish Australian treats the first time I tried them a few years back. My uncle had returned from visiting some of our family in Australia and brought some back. I guess he traded the bacon he brought with boxes of Tim Tams. I bought these Tim Tams at a nearby Metro a few weeks back, but they can be supposedly found in Loblaws and other grocery stores.
These few cookies were left to chill in the fridge before consumption. Unfortunately, the rest of the cookies didn't make the trip to the fridge... if you know what I mean. It's an amazing cookie. In the words of Jimmy, "it tastes like Twix." The cookie tastes slightly caramel-y - but without the sticky goo. The cookies weren't as sweet or as caramel-y when I ate them straight out of the fridge.
Tim Tams have a few different flavours: dark chocolate, chewy caramel and black forest to name a few. I don't know if they're all available outside of Australia though. It's okay. The original ones are perfectly fine.
I prefer to eat the Tim Tam cookies when they're at room temperature, even though the chocolate coating melts as you pick them up. It's worth the mess! If you haven't tried these babies yet, do yourself a favour and go find some!
On a random note, drop in at 7-Eleven convenient stores for a free Slurpee® tomorrow (July 11th)!
