    1. can you not get them in any store in Toronto? Does anyone know?

      1. No australian food stores that I know about in Toronto. A couple of suggestions:

        1. If I can't find the foodstuffs for a particular country, I try the stores specializing in the foodstuff from a nearby country (i.e. try Phillipino gorcery stores (there's a few on Queen West), Indonesian grocery stores, etc.)

        2. Have a pint at the Tranzac Club (292 Brunswick Club): A bar devoted to Austrailian//New Zealand culture...and full of Aussie ex-pats...maybe they'd know

        1. Hahah..oh, Tim Tams. So, the whole business about sucking up hot chocolate through the Tim Tams...pretty overrated! Though I suppose much of the fun is watching the Tim Tam disintegrate within your hapless friend's chocolately fingers as the ineffectual sucking commences.

            Hey Chester -- how do you drink hot chocolate through a Tim Tam? The only Tim Tam's I've ever had are chocolate covered biscuits. Are there straw-type cookies, too?

              you bite both ends and then suck up the drink through the cookie...

              says, "In Canada they are available under the name Arnott's Biscuits. In Vancouver they are available at the Real Canadian Superstore."

          2. If they're available at the Real Canadian Superstore in Vancouver, maybe there are in the one in Toronto as well? It's at Eglinton and Don Mills.
