NYC Cookies: 15 Cases of Tim Tams at Tuck Shop RIGHT NOW!

Date November 20, 2008

On the seventh day, the Lord rested. … and made Tim Tams.  Go to the Tuck Shop, Manhattan’s best and only Australian bake shop, immediately and buy Tim Tams. Fifteen cases just arrived and they’re going fast.  For those of you who are late to the party, Tim Tams are the best packaged cookie ever made. I liken the taste to chocolate EL Fudge cookies filled with silky chocolate and dipped in milk chocolate.

Australian Packaging, Worldly Deliciousness

You haven’t heard of them because they’re Australian, which only makes them more awesome.  But now, Pepperidge Farm is selling Tim Tams at Target stores until March 2009, which means we only have 5 months to stock up on Tim Tams and tell Pepperidge Farm we want them to stay.  Good thing for us, Tuck Shop, on 1st Street between 1st & 2nd Avenue, is selling Tim Tams FOREVER! I’ve introduced them to at least a dozen people in the last few weeks and everyone says they’re delicious.

Australia & America, Together At Last

Amazingly, Tim Tams are not even the most delicious dessert at Tuck Shop, where they specialize in Australian street food (nothing like the Halal Guys).  In fact, two of the best desserts I’ve ever had can only be found at Tuck Shop: Lamingtons and Vanilla Slice.

    How excited am I to try these Tim Tams?? You can only imagine. Last weekend, it was all about Momofuku. This weekend, it’s all Tuck Shop.

    Eating in Translation,

    Mr. Cook, no Tim Tams at the 49th Street location, only at the 1st street shop. How you been man? What’s the best meal you’ve had lately? Your reviews are great by the way.

    HungryguyAU,

    YES! Another convert. That’s what I like to hear. What did you drink?

    Sweet Freak,

    How was Momofuku? I can’t wait to hear your reviews of Tuck Shop.

    I’ve been hitting Target on a regular basis since their arrival. Yesterday they were 2 for $5!

    I’m planning on stocking up but I seem to be going through them way faster than I should be! :(

  7. Australian Tim Tams available at the Tuck Shop | Doobybrain.com said:

    [...] Lawrence tipped me off to a new shipment of authentic Australian Arnott’s Tim Tams at the Tuck Shop so I immediately went over to pick up a pack. As of about 8PM last night, there were still quite a lot left in the shop, but knowing the popularity of these chocolate biscuits, I wouldn’t wait too long to go get ‘em. [...]

    Erica,
    Nice work out of you. That’s what I like to hear. Where else do you like to eat dessert in the city? Are you living in Manhattan now?

    Kristen,
    Good to hear from you, its been a little while. Glad to see you’re still holding things down.

  9. Jack said:

    Uh oh Kristen, you better watch out, i think you already know that boys like slim girls.

  10. Ambitious said:

    Are you kidding me?!?!?!!? Peppridge Farm makes Tim Tams NOW?!??????? Are they just as good?

    NICE! I coincidently ended up at Tuck Shop and got it too!! I’m lovin’ this Tim Tam overload!

  11. The NYC Food Guy said:

    Ambitious,
    Thanks for stopping by to say hello. The Pepperidge Farm Cookies really are as good as the Australian version. What else do you get at Tuck Shop?

  12. Bill said:

    NYCFG, I managed to rock some classic and caramel Tim Tams (the Pepperidge Farm kind) at a Target in Syracuse, NY over the holidays. They were on sale 2 for $5, although I didn’t get the “tim-tam-slam” going on. They were mighty good. Reminded me of the Keebler Fudge Covered Grahams I used to pilfer from my Grandma’s cookie jar when she wasn’t looking. The Tams are way better though! Thanks for the heads up!

  13. The NYC Food Guy said:

    Bill,
    Tim Tam Slam. Do it. You said it about Keebler, I think they taste like the EL Fudge.

  14. Stephanie said:

    Does anyone know where I can get Pods made by Mars?

    thanks

  15. The NYC Food Guy said:

    Stephanie,
    Tell me more about Pods. What are they?

  16. lizii said:

    Hi! I’m from Australia. TimTams are awesome =) I blog about them all the time. I didn’t realise only Australia had them.

    As to Pods, they’re little biscuit pieces in a conical shape, filled with different chocolate. Mars and Twix are the best ones.

    This is an interesting blog, :)

  17. Stephanie said:

    I like the snickers flavored pods.

  18. The NYC Food Guy said:

    Lizii & Stephanie,
    Sounds like it’s time to get me some Pods. Can I find them in the US? It’s a conical Mars or Twix bar? Thats out of control. Thanks for the kind words Lizii.

  19. Stephanie said:

    I haven’t been able to find them here in the US but am still holding out hope.

  20. Tony Tim Tam said:

    Tim Tams have been in Walgreens in NYC for a few months now, at least the 23rd & Park location.

  21. David said:

    Jesus Christ on a crutch, are you people for real?! These are shitty mass produced cookie/candy bars. Get a grip.

  22. Sarah said:

    Good to hear so many people are getting into an Australian goodie! Tim Tams really are the food of greater beings on earth haha, best damn biscuits we have to offer :)

  23. Leelee from Australia said:

    there is nothing quite like a tim tam
    we had a tv ad here where a chick finds a lamp
    and rubs it and a genie pops out
    she gets 3 wishes
    3rd wish is a packet of tim tams that never runs out
    phenominal biscuits in Australia!
