Faithful cookie-crazed fans came out in masses to join Top Chef’s Gail Simmons at South Street Seaport on Wednesday, October 14th to celebrate the return of the Pepperidge Farm Tim Tam to American soil!
The celebration was a Tim Tam slam dunk! An unprecedented 1,100+ Tim Tams were distributed to cookie-crazed consumers in a record 45 minutes.
The seaport was complete with shipping crates filled with all three Tim Tam flavors and a crow-bar to bring to life the excitement surrounding the return of Tim Tam to the USA. Gail unveiled the first crates and distributed Tim Tams to the cookie-loving crowd.
