Discoveries at the Jungle Cookie Month: Arnott's Tim Tams Original from Australia and Daelmans Stroopwafels from Holland
Cookies, crisps, biscuits, wafers, buns, etc. Depending on what part of the world you reside, these are all the same thing. Different countries and cultures have their own cookie styles, but all we know is they are all delicious. This month we are taking you on a cookie journey around the globe to show you the best that the world has to offer!
Cookie-like wafers have existed for as long as baking has been documented, because they are great for bringing along while traveling. But those wafers were not usually sweet and not really a “cookie” as we would classify it today. Once sugar become a little more common, around the 7th century, people started combining it with “travel cakes” we mentioned to make them sweeter and more desirable. Cookies as we know it - cream, butter and sugar cookies - didn’t really come into existence until around the 18th century.
Arnott's Tim Tams Original from Australia
An Australian favorite! They are 2 biscuits separated by a cream filling and then covered in chocolate. The name comes from the winning horse of the 1958 Kentucky derby that Ross Arnott was attending. He figured why not name his new product after a winner? They come in many flavors, and, oddly enough, the United States actually has our own flavor: chocolate mint!
