Tim Tams are the Write Stuff!

Today I was over at Write Stuff and discovered Melanie has a passion for Tim Tam cookies. Well! I had to investigate! Especially because her blog was so funny and she was obviously completely enamored of the things. What kind of cookie inspires that kind of passion?

Down Under Favorite Now Available in United States at Target Stores Nationwide for Limited Time
"The number one chocolate biscuit in Australia, Tim Tam cookies are truly irresistible! Beneath a smooth layer of heavenly chocolate fudge, between two layers of crispy biscuits, a mouthwatering layer of chocolate creme awaits." OH MY!

Pepperidge Farm says, "We're certain Americans will soon understand why this scrumptious cookie is all the rage in Australia."

In a poll in the UK, Tim Tam's were rated the 4th best invention ever... behind the World Wide Web, penicillin and the TV remote! WOW! And to think all this time I've been happy with an Oreo!

A coupon for $1 off! Now, that is my kind of passion! :) So, I decided to find out yet more!

And I discovered these funny testimonials.

And now I know exactly what to do with a genie!

I even found out that they are named after the horse that won the 1958 Kentucky Derby!

Plus, there is a special way to eat them called the Tim Tam Slam. How much more fun can cookies possibly be?

First, the directions:

Now for the party:

Oh, I can't WAIT to go get some Tim Tam's at Target (since they are currently only at Target) this weekend!!! They are obviously more fun than sliced bread! And, more importantly, TRENDY, because OF COURSE we all need to eat trendy food, right? :)

Hahahaha! I can't wait to hear if you like them or not because I'll feel bad if you don't. I went to Target last night and they were OUT so I had to go another one. Or make my husband go. Anyway....


Oh, and you should check out the new addition to the giveaway today. Awesome!

Chris said...

There were OUT at your Target? OH NO! We only have one local Target! What if they are OUT here too????

I am DEFINITELY going over there tomorrow afternoon! I've been looking forward to doing the Tim Tam Slam with a cup of vanilla almond tea! :)

And MORE giveaways? I have to go check that out!

I am SURE I will love them. Chocolate? Caramel? Oh yes. I am SURE. :)

Thanks for the link on your blog! :) That was nice of you!

Do they taste like chicken????

(I like chicken)

Chris said...

Ahoy Eric! :)

I don't know! Maybe they do! :) I will find out and let you know as soon as I track some down. ;)

Are you saying you DON'T like chocolate?

What about chocolate shaped like a chicken????


Daisy said...

Those sound yummy! I've never heard of a Tim Tam. I live such a sheltered life--ha ha! We don't even have a Target here very close--rats! If you try them let me know how they are.

Do you have any ideas where I can get one of those Genies? ;)

Chris said...

Hi Daisy!



I WANT ONE TOO! Just for cleaning my closet and replacing it with clothes that fit, of course. ;) haha

I love that genie!

I'll be sure to let you know about the Tim Tams. I'm going over to Target tomorrow with my mom. I'm hoping for a buy one box of Tim Tams, get a GENIE FREE offer. :)

Daisy said...

How could I NOT notice the Genie? ;D

Good luck with that "get a Genie free" offer--I have a feeling those will sell out FAST! HA HA HA HA!

Chris said...


Sell out fast? I was thinking I was going to have to HIJACK THE DELIVERY TRUCK!!! :) hee hee

Wow... That's news to me. Now I won't have to bring those biscuits back from Australia to my friends. When I first started traveling down under I was a big fan. They have a new advanced cookie; It's crunchier and made with lots more sugar. I bought a package but could only get through about 3 of them... Way too sweet. Nice post! Thanks for the update.

Chris said...

Too much sugar? I don't think I know those words. :)

Seriously, I hope this is the original version at Target. I'm looking forward to trying them! I'm going over tomorrow AM.
