Tim-Tam Slam

TOP TIP FOR THE DAY…

It’s rumoured that Tim Tams are Australia’s favourite chocolate biscuit. And a Tim-Tam Slam is the country’s favourite biscuit related past time? So it would only be fitting, as it is Australia Day to partake in a classic Australian pastime!

  • To perform a Tim-Tam Slam you need…
  • A Tim Tam (or the British substitute, a Peguin Bar)
  • A hot drink
  • Nibble the corner off both ends of your Tim Tam
  • Use it as a straw for your drink
  • As soon as the biscuit is saturated, slam it into your mouth and revel in delight as it collapses.

Go on give it a burl!

AT THE END OF THE DAY…

As the day’s celebrations draw to a close, and after attempting too many Tim-Tam Slams, its time to settle down on the sofa and chill. So, how about spending the evening watching an Australian film? Sound like a good idea? Here are a few to choose from:

  • Red Dog
  • The Hunter
  • Crocodile Dundee
  • Animal Kingdom
  • Australia
  • The Dressmaker
  • Mad Max

Chosen one yet? If you have, grab your cosy, super comfy Boody and settle down….
