A kind friend in Australia sent me a care package containing these - limited edition mint Tim Tams. Now, I have gone on record as being conflicted about mint chocolate. I adore the Mint Slice biscuit, the Peppermint Aero chocolate, the Peppermint Crisp chocolate, the After Dinner Mint. But the last few times I have had a minty chocolate dessert I have thought it was absolutely horrible.
The Mint Crisp Tim Tam is not horrible. No indeed. A single layer of normal Tim Tam chocolate biscuit (which - for those of you who haven't had the pleasure - is normally 2 biscuits sandwiched with creamy chocolate stuff and covered in chocolate) is topped with a white mound of creamy minty filling, flecked with crispy green bits. Then the whole lot is coated in dark chocolate. Yum. The dark chocolate is bitter enough to take the edge of the rest and the mint is fresh without being toothpasty. Get them while you can.
