Tim Tams!!!

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 


OMGOMGOMG! I found Tim Tams HERE!! Not just in Australia, but here in Colorado!!!

For those unfamiliar with Tim Tams, they are about the yummiest cookie/biscuit in the whole world. I got the chocolate ones. It's two chocolate cookies with chocolate cookie cream - not quite as sweet as Oreo - then covered in milk chocolate.

I found them at Cost Plus World Market. I don't know if they have national locations, but there are 3 in the Denver-metro area (Southwest Plaza, Park Meadows, and Boulder). That place has SO much stuff! Just the food department - sparkling water from Norway, international ethnic chocolate, marinara sauce from Italy, REAL Cadburry chocolates from the UK (will try those on the next trip), Haribo gummi bears from Germany, and I seriously about jumped out of my skin when I asked the girl if they had Tim Tams and she said YES! They are under the name of Arnott's, but she assured me that they are Tim Tams, made in Australia.

Being from NZ, I know TimTams as well. I like the delux ones, however I think they're over rated

ETA we can get TimTams in Japan

Oooh Tim Tams! I found Digestives by McVities in random select areas too along with Tim Tams. The Digestives with regular chocolate are my favorite, though they're a little harder to find. The milk chocolate ones are everywhere though.

Never heard of a TimTam, but me being a chocolate and sweet-food FREAK, I am drooling at this thread!!!!!

I love Tim Tams! I loved the Kahlua flavoured ones - I should check if they are still selling those though, it has been a while since I had some.

I guess I need to make a trip into Boulder. I usually don't go there too often because traffic is such a bother and they have these little itty bitty parking spaces in so many places. But TimTams........

They don't carry the Kahlua ones. I would be ALL over those! They just had the original and chocolate at the store I went to.

See, y'all from Australia know that, but us Yanks don't have a clue! I wouldn't have found them if the girl didn't know what TimTams were.

This is why I always volunteer to have a Secret Santa from Australia.
And you aren't the only one drooling.

I remember another member found a supplier in Arkansas who ships by the case.

Oh yeah Tim Tams rock!!!!! We can get them from the local Cost Plus, but the "family size" packs are also available at the local Aussie store. Check to see if there's an Australian store in your area at all

Yup, a Tim Tam slam! It has to be a hot drink so it completely melts the inside of the Tim Tam. I eat off the chocolate from each end, then suck the drink through it, and here's the key part - learn how much you can drink through the Tim Tam before it falls apart... You need to shove that whole Tim Tam in your mouth before it falls apart. It just explodes with chocolately goodness!!

Over here for some reason, they're not actually called Tim Tams (hence the confusion). They're sold as "Arnott's chocolate biscuits" or something silly like that. The packaging is just the same except for the name. It's so weird

I was just at the Aussie store last week and stocked up on choccie biscuits. I got a family pack of assorted chocolate biscuits (Tim Tams, Gaiety, Mint Slice, Caramel Crowns and I think a couple of other things), and a regular pack of Tim Tams for me to scoff, which I did So good!

I got some as a trade off a few years ago and oh... my.... gosh!!! I looked up the website of that place and we got one about 35 miles from here!! Road trip!!! May have to swing off there once we figure out a Michigan Meet-up Place!!

The important question is "How many did you buy?"

Do you have any idea how many people put "Can I have a Secret Santa from Australia so I can get Tim-Tams" in their SS email last year?

They are yummy though.

Karen, since I'm leaving on Friday for over a week, and it was really hot in the car and we had other errands, I only got one package. But the important thing is that I KNOW WHERE TO GET TIM-TAMS! <--- That was me when she showed me where they were.
