Advanced Tim Tam Slam Techniques

August 24, 2010

LAST TIME ON PWTIC: A Tim Tam Slam ended in disaster, when our hero’s biscuit disintegrated into mush before it even had a chance.

Since then, the community has banded together, offering suggestions that could prevent this tragedy from ever happening again. Many people suggested that temperature was a key factor. So let’s just chill out and try a few new techniques.

Frozen Tim Tam with Hot Coffee:

Freezing a regular Tim Tam overnight was a definite improvement. Suckage increased by at least 1 or 2 sucks, so that a decent amount of Tim Tam flavoured coffee could be extracted before it all fell apart. Even after its messy death, some particularly cold spots remained intact.

Frozen Caramel Tim Tam with Iced Coffee:

Just biting off the corners, it was clear that there were some solid bits in the frozen caramel Tim Tam.

Oh wow, so many sucks! This biscuit refuses to go mushy. I hoovered 5 or 6 good squirts of coffee, and even after that it didn’t crumble, but just lost its ability to transport liquid.

Biting into it was not tooth-friendly. A solid skeleton of jagged caramel had kept the whole thing together, and the cold coffee had done nothing to soften it.

Using the frozen caramel kind and sucking up cold coffee is the best way to delay the senseless murder of Tim Tams.

    greetings from down under!
    i stumbled across this blog and great to see you’re trying the greatest aussie experience ever, tim tam slam!

    in the interest of ensuring your maximum enjoyment, as well as maintaining the integrity of the TTS, may i offer some advice?

    1. take smaller bites off the ends first – you only need to remove the outside chocolate layer
    2. only coffee, hot chocolate or sometimes tea is used down here
    3. after you’ve sucked throught the tt, you need to slam it into your mouth, no point holding on to it or letting it go into your cup. it will explode in your mouth which is the best part!
    4. you can never stop at just one…

    if you’d like to try different tim tams you can order them online – when i lived OS i used to have a regular order being sent over! homesick.com.au does them, or just google.

    lastly, enjoy your taste of australia! 😉
