Yeah, Tim tams rock... Ever had the Caramel or Cherry ones? - I'll give you something to do with them

Get a hot coffee or chocolate or tea (works best when you put milk in them) - Then bite off the ends of them, emerge one end into the drink and the other into your mouth like a drinking straw then suck the hot beverage up into your mouth until you can't get more then as quicky as you can slam the biscuit into your mouth before it loses its shape... Tim Tam Slam  Smile Yummo
Coolier than thou.

Agreed. I also like the carmal, and partially the cherry.

Haha.. I'll have to try that sometime. I believe it's called the "tim tam suck".. a quick search yielded the following: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tim_Tam

Hahahaha.. "Also known as the Tim Tam Slam, Tim Tam Explosion, or Shot-gunning a Tim Tam."

I really wish they'd sell Tim Tams in the US, I guarantee they would be a hit, cause like APFPilot1985 pointed out, we have nothing like them here...now Im getting a craving for them just by typing this...@)&&)Q*&@#!

Thanks...I was thinking more along the lines of them being sold in supermarkets or even "World Markets" over here, which have mostly international merchandise for sale..I drop by the World Market in Boulder every couple of months to see if they started carrying them, and no luck just yet  Sad I don't trust mail order chocolate anyways...its a quirk of mine...but I know there is a store in London that carries them, so when I head over the pond in June, I'll definitely be stopping by there to pick some up...
