You can still get Penguin biscuits not sure if the kids are thrilled by them like we used to be, never tried both, when you get to one of the meetups you must bring us so samples OZ 

Until I do Mary, you can practice the Tim Tam Slam, here are the instructions...

You need 1 Tim Tam biscuit and a cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate, (You could try a Penguin biscuit)

Take a small bite out of one corner of the biscuit

Take a small bite out of the opposite corner

Hold the biscuit at one of the unbitten corners

Dunk one end of the biscuit into the coffee

Suck really, really hard on the other end of the biscuit until you get the hot coffee in your mouth

Slam the entire biscuit into your mouth and enjoy that hot gooey chocolatey taste

Repeat until you feel physically sick
