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

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

Aww, now that's just mean! TC, I think you have full rights to those Thin Mints by now.

 

In related news, my neighborhood in Manhattan will be getting a Girl Scouts troop in March! 

Guess it helps to move close to the last remaining forest on the entire island, eh?

Our local grocery stores have started carrying TimTams..and they are the actual imported from New Zealand ones, not any Pepperidge Farm type....

I spoke with the Tim Tam man a few weeks ago when he was stocking the PF items in Target.  Apparently, they won't be delivering Tim Tam's to Target in the spring/summer because their trucks aren't air conditioned and the chocolate will melt in the warmer weather.

Just a little advance notice to those who want to stock up.

 Still haven't found them.

I just bought some at Meijer's Thrifty Acres, a locally owned chain super market and everything else store.  I guess Target's exclusive arrangement has expired.

Out of curiosity, what does the package say about country of origin?

 Don't want to upset the Tim Tam newbies on this forum but I just won a years supply in an Australian promotion ... actually its Arnott's definition of a years supply not mine ... only 48 packets but no complaints from me

Now I realise they are a desired commodity in the USA will have to bring some fro my ski USA ski buddies in January!

Qualified?  I'm a Tim Tam newbie!

Here's my review:  I like them but don't love them.  They are too expensive.  The caramel variety was very disappointing.   If I won a year's supply (my definition) I'd be in trouble!

 You enjoy your timtams while I eat my fresh oranges.

Ahhh! Tim-Tams. The staple diet of Aussie ski bums. Someone going down the mountain for groceries will always be asked to bring back some Tim Tams (and in rare cases some fruit and vegetables).  The originals are good and the dark choc even better but the cappucino flavoured are the BEST! Energy-dense and choc (sorry) full of anti oxidants. Unfortunately my wife has me on a Tim Tam free diet as my general body shape begins to resemble my dads! To all who manage to source these in the U.S. I send my best wishes and greatest envy!

I finally had some TIM-TAMS (the licensed Pepperidge Farms American ones -- are they a faithful copy?)
There were good, but oddly enough I was thinking "these would be even better with dark chocolate".

Will there be any tim-tams available for demo at the gathering this winter? 
post #77 of 81
That's a definite possibility =)

 Saw my first ever package of Tim Tams at the grocery today, and of course had to pick one up.  Most excellent indeed.

As a Pepperidge Farm Distributor I can tell you that tim tams are here for a limited time as they don't hold up well to the heat.  Target should have them as timtams are part of their regular planogram. Some of our other grocery stores also have them for now.

I was in Target tonight and remembered this thread and looked in the cookie aisle.  They were prominrently displayed on and endcap and I got the chocolate cream.  They are pretty good, but after eating homemade cookies all weekend, they didn't really do much for me.  I think I prefer a few Keebler varieties over these, most notably E.L Fudge (aka EL Fatman).

It is kind of hard to compete with cookies made by elf's in a hollow tree.
