Tim Tams

We found a way to watch LOST live on our computer. Normally we have to wait until it’s been uploaded to the site, which takes about a day. I’m not telling the name of the site because I don’t want it to be found. It’s my little secret island, if you will.

Immediately after we found it, I exclaimed that now all we need is chocolate! Here’s how my brain works:

celebration = chocolate, sadness = chocolate, fright = chocolate, paranoia = chocolate, explaining how my brain works = chocolate.

Then R smiled. He asked me to wait a few minutes because he was already working on something. After I turned from the clock’s minute hand, I looked to see what he had made.

Two cups of hot chocolate with a plate of cookies!  Awesome.

But these weren’t just any cookies. These were Tim Tams. And you best include a pause after saying its name so everyone can bow their heads in adoration.

R studied for a semester in Australia and these apparently are the sacred cookies of Down Under. Everyone loves them. Up until recently, it was hard to find them in the U.S.

There’s a catch however: there’s a correct way of eating them. I even found a bunch of youtube videos later demonstrating it.

Let me list out the steps.

1. Bite off both ends.

2. So that it looks like this, but less blurry.

3. Then, dip it into your drink (we used hot chocolate) like a straw. Suck on the cookie until you just barely taste the liquid.

4.  Once you feel it, pop the cookie into your mouth followed by an optional gulp.

It. is. heavenly.

The cookie just melts into this silky chocolate mess. Oh my, go out and get some… like, now.
