Thanks Cath. Does it say if there's one by me?
If there's one thing the grocery store that I shop at has, it's a LOOOONG ethinc foods aisle. I'm going to check it out next time I go. I should probably check it out anyway.

I prefer the raspeberry Love Potion Tim Tams over the original but they are super sweet and by the end of eating one of em, I am over it. But then a couple of days later, I'll see the packet and will forget what I thought at the end only that I liked it at the beginning!!

They brought out a chilli Tim Tam a while ago and all I can say is Blah!!!!!

Smile I cannot believe...

Pacanis, they do not have one in the north east US, they have 299 stores over the country but not in this region. According to their website they have 2 stores in Maryland and 13 in Ohio, which is ok if you live in the west/south west of PA. But you can order online! I am learning alot about US geography though!!! If you can't get any let me know, I will send some over.

My grocery store doesn't have Tim Tams. I looked for them yesterday. They have items called Tam Tams.... which look like regular crackers. Oh well. No biggie.

OH YEAHHHH *drools* just use it like a straw like Cath says and oh you can't go wrong, but that's if you don't finish the Tim Tam after taking one bite and before you can dunk it in haha

Cath, definitely a NO on the Arrowroots. Arrowroots are too hard and not at all like graham crackers. Do you have those teething biscuits in NZ/Oz? They are a bit molasses-y and if crushed would likely yield the same flavour as a graham cracker/biscuit. I'll go find you a picture.

Hi Cath,

If you want to experience the real thing then maybe you could try ordering some graham crackers online. Perhaps NetGrocer would ship to Australia.
