    I have seen vegemite at Monsieur Marcel in the Farmer's Market in the British Foods section and also at the tea shop next to the King's Head in Santa Monica. I have yet to find a bag of Tim-Tams.

      I found Tim Tams in the unlikeliest location - the concession stand at the new Landmark Theatre at Westside Pavilion. They were the real deal, and they had plenty of them.

        As other have already mentioned, Tim Tams are repackaged as "Arnott's" at Cost Plus World Market. Same taste, no difference.

      The best source for Australian products is Cost Plus World Market - there's one at the Farmer's Market and one in WLA at Westwood and Santa Monica Blvd. They carry Vegemite, Tim Tams, Jammy Dodgers, Arnott's Biscuits, etc.

        Yes, and Violet Crumble too.

          I've seen these products at the WLA location, but for some reason they don't carry them at the El Segundo or Torrance branches.

          I see plenty of things like this in the Indian grocery stores in Artesia on Pioneer Blvd.

            I've also noted a small supply of "Brit/Empire" food items at branches of India's Sweets/Spices: canned Heinz beans (which you need for a trad breakfast) salad creme, Marmite/Vegemite etc.

            Mel N Rose's has Tim Tams.

            The King's Head has Vili's meat pies (frozen).

              We get Bundaberg beverages at BevMo. DH got hooked on those during a trip to Australia, so we are happy we can get them here!
