Tim Tams are Australia 's favourite biscuits. They are made from two layers of chocolate malted biscuit separated by a light cream filling and coated in a thin layer of textured chocolate.
They're now available in Canada in three flavours: Tim Tam Original, Tim Tam Chewy Caramel and Tim Tam Classic Dark.
The indulgent chocolate, created from a secret recipe, cradles a delicate cream centre of vanilla, butter and chocolate.
The first delicious batch of Tim Tams was made in 1963. Tim Tams are made by Arnott's Australia , a company that has been making a delicious assortment of biscuits for the past 140 years.
The biscuits are so popular, that Australians annually consume nearly 35 million packs. In fact, Tim Tams are more than a biscuit to Australians- they are a piece of Australia 's culture and a national icon to be shared with the world - especially with CANADA !
The name Tim Tam came from a horse that ran in the Kentucky Derby in 1958. A member of the Arnott family, Ross Arnott, attended the race day and decided 'Tim Tam' was the perfect name for the company's newest biscuit.
The secret is in the chocolate. At Arnott's they make their own real chocolate, in-house. They source the finest cocoa ingredients from around the world, and blend with natural milk products. That's why your Tim Tam biscuits taste so much better than any other cookie.
