Tim Tam Slam – an Aussie Ritual

tim tam slamEven though I now don’t try and push my Australian food on unsuspecting Austrians so forcefully, there is one thing that I think deserves a particular mention. Not just for its fabulous taste – best chocolate biscuit in the world, I tell you – but also for the special way us Aussies consume it.

The Tim Tam Slam is a great Aussie experience. Everyone who visits should try it out. No idea what I’m talking about? That’s what I thought! Read on to find out how it goes!

Procure a packet of Tim Tams. Ignore the flavours – just stick with plain old simple original.

Step 2

Make yourself a hot beverage – coffee is ideal – or hot chocolate if you’re not so into coffee like me.tim tam slam

Step 3

Bite the opposing corners off one biscuit.

Step 4

Dip one end into your hot beverage (be quick now) and use the biscuit like a straw, sucking the hot liquid through.

Step 5

Quickly now! Before the biscuit can dissolve in your hands from the heat, shove it into your mouth. The result? A gooey, warm, chocolatey mess that fills you with happiness.

Think I’ll go and have one now!

    Oh no! What is this??? Yesterday I came across a couple of Japanese guys, on youtube, trying all the different Tim Tam flavours. This morning my 16 yo said he had a dream about them. And now you?
    Surely it’s a sign.
