Tim Tam Day is celebrated on February 16 of every year. Every country has a special treat. When comes to America it is Apple Pie, it will be scones when comes to England, but when you turn your eyes down under, it is Tim Tam that makes a splash. It is a chocolate biscuit made by Arnott’s, and it consists of two malted biscuits separated by a light chocolate cream filling which is coated with a thin layer of textured chocolate. Hence, the day is a special day to celebrate this special treat with your family members and friends.

History of Tim Tam Day

The creator of the day is still unknown. The Tim Tam biscuit was created by the director of food technology at Arnott’s, Ian Norris. In 1958, he decided to take a world trip to look for inspiration for new products. While traveling, he found the Penguin Biscuit in Britain and he decided to make a better one than Penguin Biscuit. Tim Tams first came to the market in 1964, and it was named by Ross Arnott, the man who attended the 1958 Kentucky Derby. He decided that it was the perfect name for that product. In 2008, the sister company of Arnott’s, Pepperidge Farm started to import it to the United States of America. The Tim Tams are still produced in Australia and packed in the United States of America to bear the slogan of “America’s Favourite Cookie.”

How to Celebrate the Day

The best way to celebrate the day is by picking up a Tim Tam and eating down the entire package in one sitting. For more interesting, bite both ends of it and use them as a straw to drink the beverage through it. Gather your friends, and family members for dinner and conduct a Tim Tam-themed party. Post pictures and share your thoughts on the day by using the hashtag #TimTamDay.
