NYC Cookies: 15 Cases of Tim Tams at Tuck Shop RIGHT NOW!

November 20, 2008

On the seventh day, the Lord rested. … and made Tim Tams.  Go to the Tuck Shop, Manhattan’s best and only Australian bake shop, immediately and buy Tim Tams. Fifteen cases just arrived and they’re going fast.  For those of you who are late to the party, Tim Tams are the best packaged cookie ever made. I liken the taste to chocolate EL Fudge cookies filled with silky chocolate and dipped in milk chocolate.

Australian Packaging, Worldly Deliciousness

You haven’t heard of them because they’re Australian, which only makes them more awesome.  But now, Pepperidge Farm is selling Tim Tams at Target stores until March 2009, which means we only have 5 months to stock up on Tim Tams and tell Pepperidge Farm we want them to stay.  Good thing for us, Tuck Shop, on 1st Street between 1st & 2nd Avenue, is selling Tim Tams FOREVER! I’ve introduced them to at least a dozen people in the last few weeks and everyone says they’re delicious.

Australia & America, Together At Last

Amazingly, Tim Tams are not even the most delicious dessert at Tuck Shop, where they specialize in Australian street food (nothing like the Halal Guys).  In fact, two of the best desserts I’ve ever had can only be found at Tuck Shop: Lamingtons and Vanilla Slice.

NY Food Tour: Vanilla Slice at Tuck Shop, “The Great Aussie Bite”

August 20, 2008

NYC Food Guy Note: I’m on vacation in California so I’m sending you on a NY Food Tour to keep your stomach happy while I’m gone. Enjoy the deliciousness.

  • What: Decadent vanilla custard, with a consistency similar to banana pudding, sandwiched between two slices of pastry puff covered in vanilla icing. What more do I have to say? Despite its sloppy appearance, it remains one of the best desserts I’ve ever had.
  • Cost: $3 for a massive slice
  • Where: 68 East 1st Street b/t 1st & 2nd Avenue NY, NY 10003 212-979-5200
  • Website: http://www.tuckshopnyc.com/
  • Inside info: Tuck Shop serves Australian street food including delicious meat pies and lamingtons (pound cake with jam in the middle rolled in chocolate and coconut) until 5AM on Friday & Saturday. Pick up some Tim Tams, on the popularity level with Oreos in Australia, from the tiny grocery section. They’re the best packaged cookies I’ve ever had. Look into the Tim Tam Slam for maximum enjoyment.
