There’s that satisfying crunch whenever you bite into a Tim Tam. And there’s that a wave of pleasure that hits the insides of your mouth when you start chewing a Tim Tam. But before I go any further, I should probably explain just what a Tim Tam is. It’s basically two pieces of chocolate malted biscuits held together by a light creamy chocolate filling and then covered in a layer of chocolate. Seriously, why aren’t they in the US?

Actually, they are. Target is selling them exclusively until March 2009. Hawaii is the only state that will continue selling them beyond March. Stock up while you still can, I say. Maybe if we all buy enough, they’ll keep them on our American shelves?

Anyway, the reason for this post wasn’t because I wanted to declare their arrival. I wanted to share an awesome way to eat the Tim Tam. You can actually use your Tim Tam as a straw! You bite off both ends, stick it into your cup and start sucking. The tiny holes in the chocolate malted biscuits suck the water up all the way through and into your mouth. It’s great with a cup of hot chocolate or coffee!

Unfortunately, with all that has been going on, I havent had a chance to go to Target yet. The ones in NYC are out of the way but thankfully, one of my Aussie friends brought me 2 packs, which should last me for a bit if I attempt to conserve. The ones pictured are the double chocolate coated ones (the chocolate coat is usually a bit thinner) but at the end of the day, I think the original still beats all.
