The Definitive Ranking Of Tim Tam Flavours

Sorry, Australia, but it's now official.

Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

Tim Tams are an Australian biscuit that have become an icon for this great nation, and loved all over the world. The success of the original Tim Tam lead to many new flavours and the inevitable debate over which is the best.

Four brave BuzzFeed Australia writers conducted a highly scientific* analysis to discover the greatest flavour, once and for all…

*Like our ranking for Zooper Dooper flavours, this is actually subjective as hell.

9. Peanut Butter

Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

Dean: Nope. This is the worst. Tastes like ass. Peanut butter has one purpose - to be spread on toast. Stay out of my Tim Tam.

Alex: This smells so good! Super peanutty. Saltiness of the peanut butter is a good counterpoint to the sweetness of the chocolate. I feel like this is what Americans would do to Tim Tams if they had them. Slather them in peanut butter and make a sandwich out of them.

Nick: Well this was a fucking let down.

Jemima: VOM. WHAT ARE YOU DOING TIM TAMS? If I really wanted a peanut buttery Tim Tam I could have spread my own on a plain one. It doesn’t even taste like peanut butter. GTFO of my life.

8. Classic Dark

Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

Dean: This wasn’t bad, but there’s only so much chocolate one can handle, even in Tim Tam form. I’ll eat it, but I don’t have to like it.

I feel like this is the Tim Tam I eat when I want a healthier alternative.

Nick: I hate this and I hate dark chocolate.

Jemima: I’m really not a fan of dark chocolate so I certainly don’t want it hanging around ruining my Tim Tams.

7. Coconut Cream

Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

Dean: I was excited by this because I’m a fan of the Bounty bars, but was disappointed. It’s like they went overboard with the coconut flavouring. Calm the fuck down Coconut Cream.

Alex: I was so pumped to try this one but it’s not completely doing it for me. Maybe if the consistency was more like actual coconut flakes.

Nick: Yeah nah.

First thought was YAAAAASSSS I love this! Then I had three in a row and felt pretty ill. It is very coconutty. Do not make my mistake.

6. Choc Raspberry

Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

Dean: Raspberry and chocolate is a match made in heaven, so this makes sense. Approve.

Alex: Nup. Not into it. Raspberry tastes really fake. Like a crap Wagon Wheel.

Nick: No wonder this shit was on sale.

Jemima: OMG this is amazing I love it. Perfect.

5. Salted Caramel

Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

Dean: Salty goodness. It was like a party in my mouth and everyone was invited.

Tastes like 2012.

Nick: I’m not even a big fan of caramel but this is turning me.

No. It tastes like someone burnt my Tim Tam.

4. Chewy Caramel

Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

Dean: Caramel is really good, but a bit boring when compared to badass salty caramel.

Alex: It’s OK I guess. But if f I’m going to have a caramel-filled patriotic snack, it’s going to be a Caramello Koala.

Nick: After eating Salted Caramel this is a major step back. Still OK though.

Jemima: Eh. Caramel’s great. But it makes it very difficult to do a Tim Tam slam with all that damn caramel in the way.

3. White Chocolate

Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

Dean: I don’t care what you say, white chocolate will always be real chocolate to me. I’m a fan of the diversity. I like it.

Alex: I’m just impressed they managed to invent a machine that can suck the actual joy out of a real Tim Tam.


Jemima: YAAAAS I love white chocolate Tim Tams, always have, always will. I could eat like ten of these in one go, not sure if that’s a good or bad thing.

2. Double Coat

Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

Dean: Probably the closest to original as you’ll get so it’s good. Keep in mind though, less is more.

Alex: Yeah this is actually just way better than the plain Tim Tam. They took an excellent thing and added more of the same excellence.

Nick: This is just Malibu Stacy with a new hat.

Jemima: BEST BEST BEST. It’s got that extra layer of chocolate to stop it from crumbling away in your hot beverage, and it’s just all around the greatest biscuit ever invented.

1. Original

Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

Dean: As they say, you can’t improve on perfection. Original is still da best.

Alex: When we were kids we used to get Tim Tams and hold them over the heater to melt them. Can’t beat it.

Nick: This is the first Tim Tam I ever had, so yeah, this is the best.

Jemima: I mean, for the longest time, these were the only and the best Tim Tams. But then their hot family members moved in and we forgot all about these ones.
