Yesterday, a colleague from Argentina was kind enough to bring in a box of these little Argentine snack cakes, each individually wrapped in gold foil. Alfajores are typical Argentine (as well as much of Latin American) snacks, and Havanna is a local manufacturer that produces them. An alfajor consists of a sandwich cookie (with a cake-like consistency) filled with dulce de leche and coated in chocolate (other varieties had a vanilla coating). For packaged cookies they were pretty good, as anything coated in dark chocolate and filled with dulce de leche would be; kind of like a very high-class Hostess cake. I’d imagine they are available in some Latin grocery stores, but are also available online.

Alfajores… alfajores… seemed to be the greatest and latest treat… I have read some many different articles about them… but for some reason you can’t find them anywhere… what about selling these to the masses so everyone can enjoy them!
Havanna Alfajores were impossible to find but I just found them online at amigofoods.com. Here’s the link to the website http://www.amigofoods.com/haalmi12al.html
