Aussie Tim Tam Tips

Just received a packet of Tim Tams and unsure how to eat them? Well listen up folks, this here is called the 'Tim Tam Slam' and you ain't lived 'til you've tried it.

Here's what Wikipedia has to say on the matter:

The Tim Tam Slam is the practice of drinking a beverage by sucking it through a Tim Tam, an Australian chocolate-covered biscuit. The practice is done by sucking through a Tim Tam with both ends bitten off. According to the Toxic Custard guide to Australia, this procedure is done as follows:

  1. Prepare a cup of tea (or other hot or cold drink)
    [I'd like to interject at this point and say DON'T try this with a cold drink or with tea... use coffee, milo or hot chocolate]

  2. Remove the Tim Tam from the packet [usually helps]
  3. Bite a small section off two diagonally opposite corners
  4. Dip one corner into the drink
  5. Suck on the other corner, which will mix the drink with little pieces of the biscuit
  6. When the Tim Tam begins to fall apart in your hand, eat the whole biscuit
  7. Obtain another Tim Tam from the packet and return to step 3
If anyone else has a strange ritual to share, please give us a bell.

Just the very existence of Big Red constitutes a strange ritual...and then, when you get a Big Red and a Moon Pie...

Loooooving the new header bars!!!

O. Mi. Gawd. Big Red in the header?!

Either you have some wizard of Photoshop noodling away for you, or you've got direct access to one of the Most Typically Texan Items you'll find.

Had me a Diet Big Red a few weekends ago. Mmm, drinking an oxymoron.

If someone uses Viagra UK or any other drug used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED) then he must be getting alarmed by the price that he will pay for Viagra pills sexual satisfaction. I will not advice them that they should stop using Viagra online as a treatment but I would definitely suggest them to go for a cheaper choice that supplies the same result in the end.
