Tim Tams in Philly

Does anyone know of a place in Philadelphia to get Tim Tams? Or a supermarket with a decent selection of imported products?

  1. I don't know if they have Tim Tams, but the Superfresh on Columbus Blvd just below Tasker has increased it's imported foods in the last year or so. Might be worth a shot. Nothing else comes to mind but I'll keep my eye out

    1. Sorry this isn't helpful, but I have to ask, what's a Tim Tam? I love Chowhound, I learn new things all the time.

        I've never had them but this is the description I found on line - makes me want to find them!
        Tim Tams are a chocolate biscuit made by Arnott's Biscuits, Australia. A Tim Tam is composed of two layers of chocolate malted biscuit, separated by a light chocolate cream filling, and coated in a thin layer of textured chocolate

      2. Tim Tams, are made in Australia by Arnott's Biscuits, a subsidiary of the Campbell Soup Company, where I work. At present, I do not believe they are imported into the US in any official manner. We occasionally get some around our HQ in Camden when folks from Arnott's come into town, but other than that they are pretty scarce in the US. I can check with our export/import manager, but I suspect you may be out of luck.

        Sorry.

          Have never seem those phenomenally addictive cookies in any retail store in the States. But they're online at a few places like this site:

          We had planned on bringing four packages home as gifts when we went over four years ago. We ended up eating two packages on the flights, then couldn't part with either of the others. Most addicting cookie ever.

          Can't get Victoria Bitter either, but that's another post for another forum...

            My husband worked on the ad campaign for the launch of Tim Tams in the US, so I think soon they will be a lot easier to find. I have no idea the time line tho. I have an Aussie friend who is pretty psyched.

          2. You can absolutely get them at ants pants cafe. i was just on their website today and saw them for the first time.
