The higher shelf TimTams are made in Australia, weigh 200g and cost RM13.75.

On the lower shelf the TimTams are made in Indonesia, weigh 120g, cost RM3.29 – that’s RM10 less, or a quarter the price for just over half the weight – and feature the notice, “Not for sale in Australia or New Zealand.”  None of that nasty free trade for Arnotts, then.

Now, I don’t actually want to eat these, but I have in the past, and the expensive ones do taste better.
