Searching for Tam Tam Crackers...

Hi All!

Could anyone direct me to a grocery store that sells Tam Tam crackers, not Tim Tam biscuits from Australia. I love these crackers and it seems that I can't find them in Burlington. They are kosher crackers, I think they are made by a company that also makes matzo bread. I would appreciate some help! I am going into Toronto for a medical appointment, so suggestions in the "big smoke" would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Carolyn

  1. Many grocery stores carry them - Metro at Bathurst and Lawrence, Loblaws at Bathurst and St. Clair. to name a couple.

    1. Any Sobeys should have one, if you trek up to teh thornhill area, north of steeles on bathurst st. every supermarket should have them.
      Now at passover time might be a little challenge but they should still be around.

      1. I think I have seen these crackers in the Longo's at Leslie and York Mills.

        1. I just saw that Bruno's on Avenue Road has Tam Tam crackers -- original, sesame and everything. $6.49/box.

          1. I've seen them at Pusateri's. Plus you can get them at Nortown, Daiter's (if it's still around) and Sobey's in Thornhill (Clarke and Hilda)

            1. You don't have to pay the Bruno's or Pusateri's markup for these crackers. These are availale at many of the mainstream grocery stores where they usually retail for $4.49 - $4.99 a box. They are made by Mansichewitz but with the new packaging they are playing up the Tam Tam brand and playing down Manischewitz brand and their Jewish roots. Just don't waste your time in the cracker section; you won't find them with the Ritz or Breton crackers. They are usually located in the kosher food section.

                1. The kosher section at Fortino's in West Hamilton (Main St. W.) has several varieties of Tam Tams.

                  1. No Frills at Center and Bathurst in Thornhill have them on right now for $.90 a box from Passover.

                    1. I just saw then in Dominos in the basement at the St. Lawrence Market.
