    Nutty Chocolatier is a little expensive. There's a store near the food court in Eglinton Town Square that is all British foods, and fairly cheap. Now if I could just find cheap Jaffa Cakes- Nutty Choc sells them for $7 a package!

      Nutty Choc. is a good source.

      They're also available for $3.99 a pack at:

          I wrote to Arnott's in Australia yesterday and the rep told me that Loblaws now carries the original Tim Tams.

          Can anyone confirm that?

            I can't confirm Loblaws carries them, but if they di, I'll race you for them!

            Last year, I found them absurdly, in the candy/chip aisle at the Dominion on Front Street, across from the St. Lawrence. They were not called Tim Tams though, but "Arnotts." I scooped up all 8 packages for my husband, the Aussie in the family.

            Loblaws definitely carries Vegemite if you need a stash of that too.

              Loblaws and a number of other places carried them up until a year or so ago, under the name of "Arnott's Originals" (if I remember correctly) but I haven't seen them in quite a while. I had assumed that they had been dropped. They were quite expensive; if I wasn't already a Tim Tam devotee I probably would have given them a miss.

          I've spotted Tim Tams at some Hasty Mar(ke)t locations. Definitely the one at Elm & University.

            Nutty Chocolatier, at least the store in the Beaches, carried Penguins not that long ago, don't know if they still do. Big selection of British sweets, crisps, pickles, etc.
