new home & sugar overload

I moved my blog here - no more people searching for "Big Buttys" or whatever that is!

I stumbled onto Tim Tam Slams on YouTube - and I was immediately intrigued. Originating in Australia, the basics of a Tim Tam Slam is you take a cookie or biscuit (usually a Tim Tam), bite off opposite corners of the biscuit and then use the biscuit as a straw to suck up your hot beverage of choice (coffee, tea, hot cocoa, etc.) Once the hot liquid enters the biscuit it melts the Tim Tam which you then turn around and stuff the whole thing in your mouth. What results is a big gooey chocolatey melted cookie explosion.

I went out and bought 3 packs of Tim Tam's from Cost Plus (they are called Arnott's Biscuits) and made a cup of tea and did the Tim Tam Slam. It was really good but too much of a good thing for me - probably because you pretty much have to put the entire biscuit in your mouth at once and that was overkill for me. I got that sick feeling I usually get when I eat a large quantity of sweets.

Natalie Imbruglia does the Tim Tam Slam!
