How to Win Favor with Australians in the USA

TimTam ...OK a bit off topic.

Do you work with, or know an Australian who lives in the USA? Don't know what to get them this holiday season? Here's a simple suggestion.

I have just found out that every Australian's favorite cookie, the Tim Tam, is now available in the USA until March next year! You can find them Pepperidge Farm and Target stores. If you've never tried them, you should. Trust me. If you want to make an ex-pat Australian weep with joy or even propose marriage then this is something you can surprise them with.

Some American Tim Tam perspectives:

They're also at World Cost Plus Markets (well throughout Seattle anyway).

I've given them to a lot of US folks and they go "it tastes like ..like...chocolate but only richer..not as waxy.."
