And what, pray tell, is a Tim Tam Slam. The public wants to know...

Argh. I meant:
"And what, pray tell, is a Tim Tam Slam?"

TimTam Slam = biting the opposite corners of a chocolate covered rectangular chocolate cookie, dipping one of the corners into coffee, sucking the coffee through from the opposite corner, and then popping it into your mouth. .... Oh the rush!!!

It's even more delicious when you use hot chocolate instead of coffee...

Hot chocolate? You might die of a sugar-induced heart attack. Maybe you should post a picture of a tim-tam up close so people can get a better idea. The insides are 2 sort of meringue-y, very crispy cookie/wafer things sandwiched around chocolate cream, and then the whole thing is covered in chocolate. Or double-dipped, as were the ones we had. And I agree that they hold up much better to the slams.

rodeoclown i was thinking the exact same thing!

ooh, i haven't tried the double dipped ones yet. i'll have to give them a go.

tim tam slams are the ultimate. for those outside of australia you've been deprived too long. you should start a petition to have arnotts sell tim tams all over the world.

ahhh, chocolatey goodness...

Try spicy chai through a caramel tim tam ... it's the most increadible experience!

Incidentally, there's a place in Texas from whom you can order vast quantities of tim tams ... lemme see if I can find the URL ... ah! here

Caramel is good too, the dark ones are great!!! However, I have found myself disappointed by the
'black forest' and
'mochacino' type tim tams.

Stick to the simple ones!

So Chris, when you and Liz come back to the states, you are planning on ordering vast quantities of these? Jamie and I will come over for dinner some night after you get home and we will be expecting dessert! lol!

I have experienced the Tim Tam Slam with Ruth and Colin.
