When the delightful Fiona of Wok and Spoon announced that she would be picking up 3 packages of Tim Tams on a recent trip to Melbourne and then mailing them to lucky readers of her blog, it was a no-brainer to put my name in the drawing. Free chocolate? Oh, yes!
Tim Tams, you ask? Well, so did I. I'd never heard of them and apparently they are available only in Australia. Perhaps New Zealand. I don't know, having never been to either place. Thus I've been deprived of ever tasting Tim Tams, Fiona's favorite treat.
Great was my surprise and excitement when my name was actually drawn. Woo hoo! I'd get to try a Tim Tam! I hovered by my mail box eagerly awaiting a small package with a sweet souvenir from the Southern Hemisphere. What I got was much more than expected. It was a Value Share Pack! Not even greedy me would polish that whole thing off by myself. There was plenty to go around.
As my daughter set up the photo shoot on the counter, some of my son's toys wanted in on the action. Good thing there were enough that even the cars could share.
The Tim Tams are wonderful. My husband said they remind him of chocolate-covered graham crackers, but the cracker part is more like a wafer. Crisp, delicate, melding wonderfully with the chocolate creme filling and smooth milk chocolate coating when you bite. Mmm, I think I need to go get another one.
When this package runs out I'll either have to figure out how to make them myself or go to Australia to stock up. Thank you so much, Fiona, for this fun treat!
