Life Shattering News


We interrupt this worthless blog to report some life shattering news. Blogger World, in 34 days Pepperidge Farm will be bringing back their version of Tim Tams cookies. Let me repeat this again...34 days, Pepperidge Farm will bring back Tim Tams. What is a Tim Tam you ask? Well, Tim Tams are the greatest cookies! I discovered these little jewels when I was in Australia. When I left Australia I brought back 3 boxes, and did not share with anyone. Yes, I'm that selfish! These cookies are very addicting, but oh so tasty! If anyone out there is looking for my Christmas present, or birthday present...these cookies would work. I mean, if you really want to show the love, throw in a non-fat Chai too.

PS- The answer to Friday's game was #2. Way to go....Amy in Edmond, Kendon, and KC. Imaginary high-five to you all!

Oh my goodness! I´m back into blogging and adding blogs to my list. I just found yours and I´ve been laughing hysterically for the past 30 minutes. I´m going to enjoy this.

You have just changed my life. I love me a timtam or 12.

Should we start a countdown calendar? I say yes.

Uh oh. That's not good. I'll eat an entire packet of Tim Tams in one sitting if I'm not careful. That's not good at all.

But what is good, and I mean really good, is taking two small bites from opposite corners of a Tim Tam (not adjacent corners, but opposite) then dipping one exposed corner of the Tim Tam into a cup of coffee (or milk), placing your mouth over the other upper exposed corner and sucking. Yes, you turn the Tim Tam into a straw and use it to suck up your coffee or milk.

If using coffee be quick, because the hot coffee makes the biscuit very soft very quickly. So as soon as you get the first bit of coffee into your mouth you need to quickly follow it with the now soaked Tim Tam (the whole biscuit) before it falls apart.

With milk you can take your time, because it doesn't destroy the structural integrity of the Tim Tam quite as quickly.

I love Tim Tams! I remember all the boxes we bought in Austraila! I have found something similar to them at World Market here in San Antonio, but I'm excited to see these!

Mental note to self, never try Tim Tams, since everyone else is addicted.

I was so confused by the familiar, yet different packet of Tim Tams. Are they really the same?

I so have to send you a packet one of these days, there are lots of flavours now...

They are going to sell Tim-Tam at Target in about a month.

But what I don’t know is if these the same quality of Tim-Tam as they sell in Australia?

Last year someone compared the Arnott’s version to the one being sold in the US under the Pepperidge Farm label and determined that the Arnott’s version was far superior.
