TIM TAMS IN AMERICA! HOLY CRAP!


in case you don't know what a tim tam is...

think oreo.

BUT TEN ZILLION MILLION GAJILLION TIMES BETTER
...AND AUSTRALIAN!
(and until now-ish only available in australia?!?!)

...and then there's something called a tim tam slam!

and when friend jon came back from an australian excursion
years and years ago,
he brought back a box of these foreign things and introduced me to the tim tam slam.

an experience that i have not been able to relive...

UNTIL TODAY WHEN I WAS BUYING SPINACH AT THE CORNER COMMERCIAL GROCERY STORE AND JUST HAPPENED UPON THE COOKIE SECTION AND WHAT SHOULD BE STARING ME RIGHT IN THE EYE?!!

FREAKING TIM TAMS!
double take.
am i in australia?
no.
is this a figment of my imagination?
no.
am i still alive?
yes.
jaw drop.
phone call to jon.
purchase four boxes.
leave store.
eat half a box on the way home.
eat the rest with roomies via tim tam slams.


still in shock.
but really really full.



xoxo

OMG - I was chemically addicted to these when I was in New Zealand! I considered dumping all my clothes, and just packing my suitcase full of Tim Tams when I came home!! xx

YAY I'm so glad you can now have the wonder of tim tams in your daily life. They are like a permanent fixture in our fridge here.

In addition to the tim tam slam (which is awesome) can I also recommend crumbling tim tam over vanilla ice-cream, or for total indulgence dipping tim tams in nutella (you know how I feel about nutella hehe).

And just to make you jealous you know over here with have tim tam ice cream - get your corner store on the case, its amazing!!
