Ok, I’m starting to realise that it’s probably impossible to discover a new and noteworthy product each fortnight- as I’m all out of new product recommendations for you. *Sad look*. So I’m scraping the bottom of the barrel here, recommending this product to you, and what to do with it.
But the one product which I’m loving right now is Arnott’s Tim Tams. Yeah, for sure everyone knows about Tim Tams, even international markets know about the Aussie chocolate coated cookie! But have you tried them frozen?
We hadn’t either, until a friend insisted we try them sub-zero and literally took the Tim Tam packet off the coffee table and placed it into a freezer, before we actually gave it a go.
Of course, there is some hesitation in trying a frozen Tim Tam- some don’t even like placing them in the fridge! Let alone the freezer! But don’t knock it until you’ve tried it!
My initial response was “I don’t want to break my teeth”, when offered a Tim Tam straight out of the freezer. But it’s actually not all that hard when frozen. Sure, you’d probably want to use your canine teeth rather than your front teeth to bite into it. But I have to admit, it’s not all that bad – quite good actually! The key difference when frozen, is that the cookie is drier and denser which results in a more crunchy and satisfying bite, and the chocolate remains solid throughout the entire experience! Not like when it comes out of the fridge, and by the time you get to the final third and the chocolate is getting all melty on you.
If you’re still umming and erring, not convinced…..Just give it a go! It’s def worth the experience even if you try it only once! Just chuck it into the freezer, and if anything your Tim Tams last longer! As it’s more substantial when frozen, and it’s out of direct sight and out of mind, thus you don’t demolish them as quickly compared when they’re always just under your nose in the fridge.
And contributing to the theme of doing what Arnott’s had never intended? I had a box of Arnott’s Jatz crackers in the pantry, but no dip at home. But I did have a tub of yoghurt though? So you’ve guessed it……..In went the Jatz, and I ended up with a savoury and sweet combination, again not all that bad, I’d def do it again when confronted with a similar scenario. Haaha.
