Tim Tims from Australia

Tim Tams from Australia

Most of you are aware that chocolate is one of my weakness.

So you could imagine what happened when my friend francis bought these Tim Tams back from Australia. He went to Sydney and I made a special request to bring back this limited edition Tim Tams not available here:

Chilli Choc Fling

and a fling was what i had. a passionate fling with me and my Tim Tams. It certainly was a dangerous liasion. I was literally popping Tim Tam after Tim Tam into my mouth. Sinful. And I did the Tim Tam slam with hot milo. Heaven. Must try it with coffee or milk next.

Anyway i enjoyed the chilli choc fling! i know what you must be thinking - no, it's not THAT spicy. It's kind of subtle. I actually tasted the sweetness of the chooclate cream first... then, the spicy tinge starts to creep up on your tastebuds. It's a change, but a lovely one. I totally dig these tim tams. Too bad I don't live in Australia. I could stock up on Tim Tams~ but that would mean a bigger sized me. Haha...

eatzycath said...

what an unusual combination - chilli with chocolate, will have to try it tho' I may end up eating the whole packet since my hubby doesn't like chilli at all other than in curry??

the baker said...

Yeah, Tim Tams are great especially the ones directly from Australia. I tried the ones packed with alcohol and they were fantastic. Not had any chilli chocolate though but it sounds interesting.

I've tried these Tim Tams before too. And yah, the chilli taste is very subtle...in fact it kinda takes quite a while to kick in!

Clare Eats said...

The blackforest ones are really good too! and the dark chocolate and the truffel! Oh they are all good :)

(and I can have them whenever I want! but I dont)

Sonya said...

Hmmzz if u like the chilli tim tams ..
U should really try the white truffles temptations ... I lurve the white truffles ones and the tia maria ... best for milo dipping and definately on its own

spots said...
