The Tim Tam Slam

[:gb]There are so many things that are associated with Australia foodwise, like the infamous vegemite and exotic meats of the likes of kangaroo or crocodile. But the ultimate must try and must try properly food are Tim Tams. There are not just sandwich chocolate cookies and do not compare them to the American orios. They play in a league of their own. Right now there are so many different kinds, but the best – in my opinion – are the original and double coated ones. Whatever your liking is, there is only one real way to savour their full flavour: by doing the Tim Tam Slam!
[:de]Es gibt so viele Dinge, die man in Australien kosten muss, wie zum Beispiel das verrufende Vegemite oder exotisches Fleisch, wie Kanguru oder Krokodil. Aber das ultimative Essenserlebnis hat man mit Tim Tams. Diese muss man aber nicht nur unbedingt probieren, sondern man muss sie auch richtig verzehren. Denn Tim Tams sind nicht einfach nur Schokogebäck wie Oreos, sondern spielen in ihrer eigenen Liga. Zur Zeit gibt es so viele verschiedene Sorten, aber die besten sind – meiner Meinung nach – die Originalen und mit extra Schokolade überzogenen. Aber, was auch immer ihr bevorzugt, es gibt nur einen Weg ihnen gerecht zu werden: mit dem Tim Tam Slam!

    Is a Tim Tam just chocolate or has wafer in it too? Either way that is a Genius idea!! Yum!!

    1. Hi Chelsea, a Tim Tam is a wafer covered in chocolate and with a soft chocolate cream centre. It come sin different flavours, too. Double choc, dark choc, peanut butter, white and special editions, such as red velvet. It is addicting! And if you are in Australia, always wait for the 2 for 1 deals and then stock up! But you don’t necessarily have to use Tim Tams, Penguins and Twix work just as well.
