Tim Tams lost again !

From being readily available there seems to be a shortage. I can get the caramel ones in Loblaws but not the original dark biscuits anywhere at all.

Anyone seen them?

      IGA had them last time I checked, about a month ago.

      I've been noticing this too. Frustrating.

      I just ran across all the varieties at Pusateri's yesterday, fyi.

        Saw three flavours - Caramel, Dark Choc and Milk Choc in the Sobey's on Front Street East last weekend.

          I saw them today at Bruno's on Avenue Rd. Milk chocolate, dark chocolate and caramel flavours. $4.99/package.

            I saw them today at the Cambridge Walmart SuperCentre. They had lots in a couple of flavours.

                Loose Moose used to have a few flavours on hand too, might be worth a look if you are in chinatown.

            Concord Food Centre (@ centre & dufferin in thornhill) is unloading a whack of feb '10 expiry dark chocolate ones for $1 each.

            They also have some sweet angus striploins/roast on sale for $7.99/lb and fresh pork side ribs for $1.79/lb until tomorrow.

              Loblaws on Redway (off Millwood) in Leaside, Galati Brothers on Leslie Street north of Finch, and Sobeys on Front Street east of the St. Lawrence Market are just three of the stores I've bought them at in recent weeks.

                I"m pretty sure you'll be seeing them everywhere soon.
                They just did a tim tam slam sampling station down at First Canadian Place last week..

                  Both Sobey's on the Queensway seem to have them whenever I go in. Weirdly, a few European grocers seem to carry them; I'm pretty sure I saw them at a Starsky's once.

                    After all the Tim Tam furour here, I picked some up at what used to be the Pape IGA but is now the Pape Rebranded Something Else. Anyway, they are quite tasty! Thanks to all those who piqued my curiosity!
