One of Australia’s most iconic snacks, the Tim Tam, is getting a tasty tribute from Trader Joe’s.
The grocery store’s newest in-house product is Aussie-Style Chocolate Creme Sandwich Cookies, which, according to the product label, are inspired by a popular snack from Australia. A Trader Joe’s associate confirmed to Foodbeast that their inspiration is the iconic Tim Tam.
For those not in the know, Tim Tams were created in Australia by biscuit company Arnott’s. They consist of a chocolate creme filling, chocolate sandwich cookies, and an encasing of more chocolate on top.
Trader Joe’s version hits all of the marks when it comes to matching that cookie. It also has a slightly sweeter taste, and a little richer chocolate flavor, upon trying them.
The best things to do with these Tim Tam replicas is to bite off part of the end on either side, then drink through the cookie sandwich as if it were a straw. The “Tim Tam Slam,” as it’s called, goes best with coffee or hot chocolate.
With Trader Joe’s making their own version, a lot more people are gonna to get know the Slam and transform their coffee drinking experience.
