7 am – 7 pm: Pick your free Original Tim Tam
Free Tim Tam pickings
Martin Place is the place to be today for Tim Tam lovers wanting to pick their own free Tim Tam from the trees. They'll be available between 7 am and 7 pm. Initially 30,000 Tim Tams will be hung from the trees but they're going so fast I heard 1000s more are on their way to keep up with demand. I love the idea and it brings some fun to Martin Place for the office workers especially with the addition of fun-loving orchard farm folk, woodpecker looking dancers and a camouflaged tree man. I felt a bit like Charlie in the Chocolate Factory. Perhaps in the future an even bigger and better forest of chocolate and candy treats will come to Martin Place. According to Mumbrella the Tim Tam Orchard is being filmed for a TV commerical to be aired on Sunday 20 May.
PROS: Free sample, Fun atmosphere, Free entertainment, Great idea
CONS: Only for one day, High in sugar and fat, Tim Tams actually don't grow on trees in reality — or do they?
MUST TRY: Picking off your free Tim Tam while they last
