Editor’s note: If you’re wondering where to buy TimTams in Utah, the answer is you can really only get them during Christmas time at a grocery store like Smith’s or Macey’s. I’m not sure why they only come around during the holidays…but I can’t seem to find them at any other time. If you’re someone who does know where to get the goods, leave a comment below. Now onto the story:
I’d like to say that I had a real Tim Tam Slam this weekend, right here in Provo City, USA, but unfortunately that’d be a lie. I can say though, that I’ve seen Tim Tams at the Smith’s grocery store, and although we didn’t eat real Tim Tams this weekend, we did buy a couple packages of Keebler Grasshoppers and pretended they were Tim Tams. Yep, we sucked our hot chocolate and egg nog dry with those Grasshoppers, and Kyle called it a Grasshopper Shlopper. Give it a try sometime, though I bet it doesn’t beat a Tim Tam Slam; and I promise you that Mo and I totally saw carmel and milk chocolate ones last time we bought groceries. They exist, and they’re here!
If you don’t know what a Tim Tam Slam is, (never mind Grasshopper Shlopper), it’s what happens when you bite off the short end on either side of your Tim Tam (or Grasshopper), dip it into your milk, and suck through the other dry end like a straw. You get a taste of chocolate goodness (in this case minty chocolate) and a creamy soggy cookie that you better catch before it plops right into your cup. Mmmmm. So good.
