Not yet, and yes you should have.

So I did an Amazon search for tim tams and all it gave me was this...

I looked in my kitchen cabinets today and to my surprise there was a box of Tim-tams in there. I guess my mom grabbed a box when she was at the store. Anyway, they're good...really good.

Just got back from New Zealand...alas, only one box of Tim-tams left in the luggage...
post #35 of 81
We have them in NZ. I did not realise they were world famous! My employer supplies choccie biscuits at work, the Tim Tams always disappear the quickest - except the strawberry ones, they should be banned, taste more like 'perfume' not that I've ever tried drinking perfume, really artificial, yuk. Why ruin something when you can have the original or chewy caramel, yum. We have a monthly ration of biccies, thank goodness, or we'd all be humungous.

When I went to Canada in '99, I had to bring in 5 jars of vegemite (1 kg jars at that), 4 for expats and one for a Pom who was homesick for Marmite. Also had about 10 packets of Tim Tams, umpteen Cherry Ripes, Violet Crumbles and some 'tard even ordered a package of Scotch Finger biscuits...?! Customs were somewhat astonished by it all, but let me and the loot into the country.

Tim tams should take the US biscuit aisles by storm, they've got nothing remotely like them. Chips Ahoy, oh please.

Next, Magnum ice creams.

Not if they're produced locally under licence. Then they'll taste just like everything else.

(ever notice how Ichiban and Kirin by Molson, taste like, well, Molson?)





Of course, if they're produced locally there's a lesser chance of Chinese melamine....
post #38 of 81
Good point, Comprex. And they're not as good as they used to be. You used to get more in a packet, they were bigger, and there was a real golden syrup taste to the biscuit.

I'm reading all food labels very carefully now to ensure that nothing's from China, I prefer my melamine to be organic.

I went on a two week "gourmet" store rampage trying to find golden syrup for a bowl of Weetabix.
post #40 of 81
Heh, golden syrup isn't gourmet! It's funny how some things that are so common and "normal" can't be found in other places.

There's nothing quite like things made with golden syrup.

kirin in japan tastes like molson too. and they both taste like budweiser no matter where you get them. watery light lager is watery light lager the whole world round.

Considering their corporate history, did we really expect anything else?

Anzac biscuits..
post #44 of 81
Still haven't found them.
post #45 of 81
Yep, Anzac biscuits are brilliant, and golden syrup being the magic ingredient. They must be home-made though.

Probably people have been in, like locusts, and bought them all.

Offer still stands Philpug.

I'll be in Utah next month, I guess I should bring over a supply.
post #48 of 81
I'll be in Utah next month too! If he still requires tim tams, I also can help. Reminds me, must take some for my host.

I almost mastered teh Tim Tam Suck a while back, too. Can't eat them now, there's the dreaded "traces of nuts" warning on the packet. Sigh.

Where and when?
post #50 of 81
I'll be based in Park City for the month (staying with a friend and ex-colleague), but choofing around to PSIA training events and am going to the last 3 days of the Gathering (there's a couple of good training events at Sundance I want to go to on the first few days).
post #51 of 81
Just brought some back on a vacation in Thailand, and they're quite tasty! I'll have to do a taste comparison test with the ones at Target and see if they're up to par.
post #52 of 81
i stopped at target again, still no luck.
post #53 of 81
You are cursed, Phil. Well I'll be bringing a giant and mainly empty case to SLC in Feb, so by then if you're still deprived I can fix that! just let me know. although PA is a tad of a hop from Ut. Coming to the gathering?

Not the Gathering, I will be at JH the week before. I will check another target.

i found some at my local target yesterday. pretty good, but not really anything special, especially at $3.50 for one tiny little package. at least they're not inedible gack like vegemite. i approach any sort of aussie delicacy with a great deal of trepidation after trying that.

Try beets on a burger...not bad! Now make that burger a kangaroo burger and you've really got something going.

Quite seriously, though, ostrich or emu steak is amazing. WAY better than cow meat, and much healthier.

Tim Tams did certainly make to Italy last december.
I have friends from Australia visiting and they brought us some packets.
Very tasty!

A burger MUST have beetroot, that's a given. I've never had a roo burger, but we eat the meat fairly often, roo fillets on the barbeque are good.

I'll swap one of our burgers for a buffalo burger anyday, I can't wait to hit the US and scoff down a few.

So when I got home yesterday my wife had a few surprises for me.  One of them was..... Tim Tams!

 

Yup pretty darn tasty.  My will power faces a stern test trying to save one or two for her this evening =)

This should make up for the fact that your thin mints are still in my freezer.
