Tim Tams

Does anyone know where I can buy Tim Tams? (the yummy Australia cookie) I used to be able to find them at Shaw's and Star Market but they have mysteriously stopped stocking them. I need my Tim Tam fix!!

    I have seen them at Target. Pepperidge Farm is selling them under their badge.

      via wikipedia:

      Pepperidge Farm, a sister company of Arnott's, brought the Tim Tam to the United States in the fall of 2008, with select distribution of caramel and chocolate crème flavors in Target stores nationwide. ...
      In the fall of 2009, Pepperidge Farm announced that Tim Tam cookies will be made available each year between October and March. The brand also premiered the Classic Dark flavour in the United States, in addition to extending distribution of Caramel and Chocolate Crème flavors to supermarkets and grocery stores across the country.

      So stock up now, I guess.

        Only difference between Arnotts and Pepperidge farms is high fructose corn syrup.

      Target and Hong Kong Market both carry them.

          You could try Kiki's in Brighton...I'm not they carry Tim Tams but they do have a wide assortment of English and Irish goodies...

            I've seen them at the Christmas Tree Shops in Somerville and Framingham.

                    Thanks everyone! I recently found them at Cardullo's in Harvard Square and the Watertown Target. (Bought some at both:)

                      I bought them at Cardullo's in Harvard Square as recently as two months ago.... they had both the milk and dark chocolate varieties.

                      I also got served one with my meal a couple of days ago on a Cathay Pacific flight :)

                          Alton Brown has been shilling for a kosher salt company (I forget which, and it's not relevant at the moment anyway), and recommended gussying up your favorite chocolate-dipped cookie by melting the chocolate on top with a torch and sprinkling hotshot salts upon it. I tried it on Tim Tams and liked the results just fine.

                            If you happen to be up north skiing. I saw the PF Tim Tams in the Killington Market last week.
