We have Tim Tams here in the US, but I here the Australian & UK Version are better.

Yes, that's true. We have a store here in TX called World Market where they sell real Tim Tams, but the ones by Pepperidge Farm in the grocery store are different. 

ETA: ... There WAS a store here called World Market but come to think of it, the last time we lived in TX, they were going out of business. It was an imports store.

Oh good, then you know what I'm talking about! LOL I wasn't sure if they were still around or not. When we moved to Arizona, I was so excited to see they had World Market there. Then I was deflated to find out that it was a completely different store - a members-only interior design wholesale type place.

World Market is my favorite store.  Almost all of the curtains in my house, lots of the knick knacks, and various other things are from there.  My dh likes it because he can find food her remembers from growing up in Portugal.
