So what exactly are Tim Tam cookies and why haven't you ever heard of them? Believe it or not there are around 35 million packages of these cookies sold each year. Produced by the Australian baking company, Arnott's, Tim Tams are the #1 selling chocolate cookie in Australia. Ilovetimtamcookies.com describes these treats as: "the most irresistible chocolate cookie." "Crisp cookie layers lovingly covered with rich chocolate fudge, and filled with smooth chocolate crème that will slowly melt on your tongue in decadent delight."My sample cookies arrived this past Saturday, just in time for me to have a mid-afternoon snack. I tore into the package and savored each bite. Tim Tam cookies are pretty good. They remind me of chocolate coated graham crackers with a silky mousse filling.

Tim Tam Cookies Have Made It To The US...
And I've been chosen to sample them. A few weeks back I was contacted by the advertising firm, Mr Youth, and asked if I would taste test some Tim Tam cookies. Prior to this I had never heard of Tim Tam cookies, but once they described them of course I agreed. Chocolate wafer cookies filled with chocolate and covered in chocolate; I couldn't possibly turn the offer down.
So if you'd like to experience these Australian cookies for yourself, Pepperidge Farm has brought them to the US for a limited time. You'll find them exclusively at Target until March, 2009.
