Tims Tams Come to America

3rd\SE Quadrant: The Approval Matrix

By: Alexandra Vallis\NY Mag

[Tim Tams] come in chocolate crème or caramel flavors and then are coated in chocolate. Though the Campbell Soup Co. owns both Pepperidge Farm and Tim Tam's Australian parent, Arnott's, this is the first time the cookies will be sold in the U.S. Head to the nearest Target and hoard away — Tim Tams are here for only a limited time [from November 2008 through March 2009 at Target stores nationwide, with a suggested retail price of $3.39.]!

Australians consume over 400 million Tim Tam biscuits each year -- that's 35 million packs. And earlier this year, a joint poll by The Times in the United Kingdom and in Australia ranked Tim Tam as one of the best inventions since sliced bread.
