ISO Tim-Tams

EliAnnKat Jan 23, 2008 12:45 PM

I know Australian products in general were recently covered, but I have not found Tim-Tams. I am looking to score some SERIOUS points with my father-in-law and I'm willing to drive. Has anyone recently seen them?

    I've purchased them at Cost Plus World Market.

      I checked the one on Westwood Blvd. Did you buy them at another location?

          I bought them at the Pasadena location on Colorado. If you're really in a pinch, Amazon sells the British version, Penguins, online.

            They must have been out of stock as I have purchased them there in the past. Have you tried the Farmer's Market location?

          They have them at the concession stand at The Landmark Theater at The Westside Pavillion - Westwood/Pico - last time I was there they had 4-5 different kinds.

            This was going to be my suggestion. The concession stand is accessible with purchasing a movie ticket.

            I think they have them at the Continental Shop on Wilshire & 16th - hub of all British empire stuff - violet crumble, mars bars, digestives, etc.

            This is random, but I just saw them in the kosher food section of Ralphs on Olympic & Barrington. Not sure if kosher Tim-Tams = regular Tim-Tams.
