Alfajor, the most argentinian treat

Simple, effective and addictive, alfajor is the favorite treat of all Argentines. Everyone has his favorite, but no one can live without it.

Alfajor golosina

If we think fast about the Argentinian   treat   par excellence, the answer does not fail: the   alfajor  . The weakness of all Argentines is much more than just a sweet. It is part of our cultural identity and our daily lives, with a consumption of  one kilo per capita per year. 

This treat is in our country  150 years ago. Tradition goes back to the province of  Córdoba , where a French chemist,  Augusto Chammás , had the magical idea. Two  cookies  or round baked dough joined by some filling and bathed in chocolate. Simple, effective and addictive. He baptized him “ alfajor ” and launched him to conquer a whole country.

There are different types and with different  fillings . Everyone has his favorite, but we all agree on something: without the alfajor, our life would be a little empty.
