In Which the Blogger FINALLY Gets Her Hands on the Elusive Adriano Zumbo Tim Tams…

Toothsome, sugary, and totally moreish!
Toothsome, sugary, and totally moreish!

This is the packet that sent shrieks of excited delight echoing throughout the bullpen at work one afternoon when one of the girls from Sales opened it and shared it with the rest of us lesser beings.

High school classmates who now live Down Under have tortured me by posting pictures of the limited edition Adriano Zumbo Tim Tams on Facebook.  I’ve been all, “Girls, anyone coming home to the Philippines any time soon?  Hey, I’ll chip in for the TimTams – just gimme some!”  Alas, no one’s flying in earlier than Christmas, so I pretty much reduced myself to a regular sulky snit over these elusive snacks.

So you can just imagine how totally blissed out I was to get an Adriano Zumbo TimTam: specifically, the au courant salted caramel variant.  It was a particularly toothsome bit: not too sweet, the milk chocolate coating of a slightly better quality than that of the standard Tim Tam biccie and also a bit thicker; the caramel rich, buttery, with that pop of salt towards the end.  Yum.

We’re all trying to find a way to order more of these treats; heck, we’re all craving the chocolate brownie and raspberry-white choc versions, too.  Until then, we’ll make do with what we can put our grubby little paws on – but, hey: regular Tim Tams are nothing to sneer at and are amazing enough treats on their own.   So, anyone up for a Tim Tam Slam? 😉
