Where are the Tim Tam biscuits originally from?

The Tim Tam biscuits are invented and manufactured in Australia. In 1958 Ian Norris started experimenting with crème flavours and biscuit cookies. Ross Arnott came up with the name Tim Tam and after 6 years of perfecting the Tim Tam it got to the market. So, in 1964 the first cookies were manufactured for the public by Arnott’s factory.
