Arnott’s is sharing their famous Tim Tam recipe with their US sister-company Pepperidge Farm in hopes of getting Americans to love the chocolate cookie that Australians have been all over for the past 40 years. The Tim Tam packs in regular chocolate and caramel are to be sold exclusively at Target beginning November 2008 until March 2009.

I’m assuming that after March 2009, Campbell Soup Co., which owns Arnott’s and Pepperidge Farm, will take a look at how well the Tim Tam sales did and decide from there whether to make Tim Tam cookies a staple of American diets!

I cannot wait to go to my local Target to see if they’ve already got these in stock! The suggested retail price of each cookie pack is $3.39.
