Having returned to the UK from Australia and suffered deprivation from TImTams, I discovered they are available in the UK!

There are several websites that stock them and anyone you living in London they can be bought in the Aussie shops in Covent Garden, amongst others.

Good work, Charlie!


As an educational point the Cadbury’s chocolate out there tastes completely different to how it tastes here – something about adding stuff to stop it melting so easily (not a problem the Brits suffer from commonly!).

Ah, didn’t know it was because of the melting point, very interesting! Same here in the US about the taste though – the Cadbury chocolate operated by Hershey’s in the US is not the same. But it’s definitely better than nothing! And definitely better than eating Hershey’s chocolate which tastes dreadful!


P.s. comparing Penguin biscuits to TimTams is verging on blasphemy! ;-)

Coke v Pepsi, right? :)

Scott, Tim Tam is great:) But there is another thing I can not forget – Vegemite. Maybe i’ll have a chance to refresh one’s memory about it 20 years from now, thanks to the Non-Exclusive Account:) Shame for those who do not understand me:)

Hi Alex! I have never tasted Vegemite (or Marmite for that matter), and never will. I’ll send you mine if I ever become Elite. ;)

By the way, you made it to Elite status with a non-exclusive account which is a MASSIVE achievement, especially as an AudioJungle author, you should try to do it with your exclusive account too!

Has anyone else ever done that before – gone Elite with two different accounts (with no partnerships)?!

Do you Aussies have Flake bars like we Brits do? :)

I seem to remember that when I visited Australia yes, they had Flakes and other Cadbury’s chocolate bars. Why? Is yours a 99, Blinn? :)

Hopefully one day they may come to the UK so therefore I can try one :D

They’ll definitely be on their way when you become an Elite author, Palzme! Challenge accepted? :D

I live in the UK, so I think the closest thing we have to a Tim Tam is a Penguin Bar. If Tim Tams are as good as Penguin Bars, I’ll be in for a treat when I go back to the USA. :)

Hi Blinn! They are indeed very, very similar to Penguins, but I would describe them as half as light, and taste twice as good. Which I guess is why I eat twice as many. ;)

Many authors here have only become aware of (and later become addicted to!) Tim Tams through their Elite care packs. For those that don’t know, Tim Tams are an Australian chocolate cookie/biscuit self-described by Arnotts as, “Irresistible chocolaty happiness in a cookie.” Envato typically gives them away to authors as part of the care pack authors receive when they level-up as Elite.

Well, good news for anyone living in the US! My wife kindly found (and bought me) several packets of Tim Tams this past weekend from Target! So if you’re in the US and either love Tim Tams or want to find out what they’re all about, now’s a great time to stock up! You’ll find them in the Easter candy aisle in Target and I’ve since heard that this is the only time of year they sell them in the US.

Time to stock-up US Tim Tam fans! :)

Are Tim Tams available anywhere else outside of Australia? How much do you like them? Is there anyone who doesn’t like Tim Tams?! Shame on you if so. ;)

I dont get what i have to do with her, or maybe i dont have inspiration at this moment

Hey Farko! Take a look at some of the entries so far for some inspiration. But don’t think that is all you can do. Think outside the box!

I would also recommend thinking about how you can apply styles or techniques that you are familiar with or enjoy utilizing. For example, seems like flyer design is your speciality. So you could use and manipulate the image and incorporate it into a flyer design somehow. The asset can be part of something big/different, the asset does not necessarily have to be the main focus (if that makes sense). Remix. Create. Use your imagination. :)

Good luck, Farko! I want to see what you come up with now, I’ll be looking out for your entry, don’t let me down. :-D

Hi MUS! If the same items are being sold on different sites when the author is exclusive, they are in breach of our terms and conditions. You did the right thing contacting our Help team, awesome job, thanks so much for doing that.

To answer your question, it’s just like life itself… a minority of people will always try to break and bend rules on purpose, knowingly, and try to get away with it, but in doing so, they are taking a big risk and will have to face the reality of consequences if/when caught.

Please also note that any authors that transition away from being exclusive here I believe they have a grace period of about 30 days while the exclusivity expires, so, without knowing anything specific about the items/authors you have reported, please bear this in mind as far as time is concerned. Ultimately, the information on Exclusive Author Information always applies, so anyone who is in breach of the exclusivity agreement should proceed with caution, see below:

What happens if I don’t meet exclusivity?

Depending on the extent of your breach of exclusivity, it may be decided that your rate is reduced to that of a non-exclusive author or if your breach is considered serious enough, you’ll be disabled as an author completely and you may lose your ability to sell with us in the future.
