Something I’ve actually heard about but never tried is this special Aussie way of eating Tim Tam’s. This ritual goes by many names; the Tim Tam Slam, the Tim Tam Bomb, the Tim Tam Suck and the Tim Tam Explosion but no matter what you call it, the steps are the same.
- First, have your hot coffee/tea/chocolate ready in front of you.
- Then bite off each end of the Tim Tam diagonally.
- Next, place one bitten end of the Tim Tam in your mouth and dip the other bitten end in the hot drink.
- Use the Tim Tam as a straw and suck. As the hot drink is pulled through the biscuit, the structure of the biscuit and cream collapses.
- Once you sense the drink on your tongue, pop the whole Tim Tam in your mouth before it explodes!
In this video the ritual is demonstrated by Natalie Imbruglia.
