Tim Tams are known as “Australia’s Favorite Cookie,” and for good reason. These little cookies are nothing short of amazing. The building blocks are simple: a chocolate mousse filling is sandwiched between two chocolate wafer cookies and the whole thing is dunked in a thin layer of chocolate. It’s a fantastic combination of rich, crispy and creamy – especially when you do the Tim Tam Slam and dunk the cookies into a cup of hot coffee.
The cookies are produced by Arnott’s in Australia, a company owned by the Campbell Soup Company. Campbell’s also owns the Pepperidge Farm brand in the US and has decided to release Tim Tams here – officially, not just as an import – for the first time! The Pepperidge Farms Tim Tams come in two varieties so far: Chocolate Creme (the original flavor) and Caramel. Both are outstanding and taste just like the Australian cookies. I’m thrilled to be able to have regular access to Tim Tams at the market and hope that Pepperidge Farms adds some of the other flavors I’ve enjoyed in Tim Tams to theie line, like mint chocolate, chocolate-chili and chocolate-orange.
