I was recently in America and came across an ad for Oreos -- “milk’s favorite cookie”. Very cute.
We do it slightly differently down under.
The Tim Tam Slam (variously known as the ‘Tim Tam Bomb’, the ‘Tim Tam Suck’, and the ‘Tim Tam Explosion’) makes coffee breaks deliciously interesting.
Tim Tams have been a chocolate biscuit favorite in Australia and New Zealand for… I don’t know how long –- but as long as I can remember.
The biscuit (we call ‘cookies’ biscuits) is a stroke of genius -- chocolate cream inside a chocolate-covered chocolate biscuit.
The Tim Tam Slam is a method of using these cookies as a straw to suck up a hot drink (coffee, for example) and then eating it before it explodes.
For full instructions, click on the Tim Tam Slam article.
But before you try it I offer this warning: Oreo Dunks are going to seem really, really tame after this.
