SA 003: Tim Tams & Hot Cocoa

Posted on 19. Apr, 2009 by djsteen in episodes

Derek shows off an Australian icon — Arnott’s Tim Tams — while Rachel schools him on how to make hot cocoa.

Tim Tams are in the household of 1 in 2 Australians and have been exported overseas as Arnott’s Original. They are very similar to McVitie’s Penguin made in the United Kingdom, but Derek doesn’t think Penguins are as tasty.

Bellagio Sipping Chocolate by Caffe D’Amore is the perfect drink to go with Tim Tams. Many Australians use Tim Tams as a straw with their hot cocoa or coffee because the chocolate cream centre melts before the biscuit casing does. Derek tries this and manages to get it working. Both Derek and Rachel conclude that the mint sipping chocolate tastes like a piece of chewing gum was dropped in it, but the caramel is yummy.
