I have a great group of friends at work that I rely on a lot. They’ve been there for me through all of my food adventures; good and bad. They trust in me and are available whenever I need taste testers…no matter what the product might be. So when I found myself having to review Tim Tam cookies for the 2nd time I knew I could count on this group to help me out. (you can read my first review here)
I explained to them the requirements. It wasn’t going to be easy but they were up for the challenge. Some were going to have to break their diets; some would be required to eat chocolate and others caramel; and I needed all of them to tell me their inner most thoughts. I knew I was asking a lot but that’s what friends are for right?
The cookies were passed out and the tasting began almost immediately. Initially there was some bickering over who liked which flavor better (chocolate vs caramel). I even witnessed a small scuffle when a Tim Tam was grabbed from the hands of one friend and eaten by another. Helping to preserve your diet was the “grabbers” excuse.
In the end everyone agreed that both flavors of Tim Tam’s were delicious; though most favored the chocolate over the caramel. Words such as crunchy and crisp were used to describe the cookie; creamy and not too tough the filling. They tasted so good in fact one taster offered to run out and get more.
As you can see I am lucky to have such a great group of friends; willing to sacrifice everything for me. In honor of them I’m going to give away a package of Tim Tam’s to one lucky blog reader. Just leave a comment by midnight Wednesday, January 27th, telling me who you turn to in these sticky situations…cause let’s face it we’ve all been there. I will randomly pick one winner. Follow me on twitter www.twitter.com/foodhunterguide for an extra chance to win.

Tim Tam cookies have been a favorite in Australia for decades, and last year, Pepperidge Farm brought them to the US for the first time ever. Pepperidge Farm also introduced a new flavor, Classic Dark, that is totally amazing and only available at Target stores. Best of all, Tim Tam cookies will be back every year from October to March!
