Review: A taste of South America's - Alfrajores

Have you heard of Alfajores??!
I received a delicious parcel from Daniela - LatinPR. It was the delicious Argentine Alfajores by AlfaChoc! It is pronounced as (Al-fa-ho-res). It is a South American type of sandwich cookie that is filled with dulce de leche (caramel filling). YUM!
I received the AlfaChoc Dark - I like how the cookie is crumbly, the caramel filling is slightly gooey and how the dark chocolate ties everything together.
 It is nice as a gift! Who wouldn't want to receive Chocolates + Biscuits + Caramel all in one?!
These Alfajores are handmade in Sydney.
Premium ingredients like Belgian chocolate and fresh vanilla beans from Papua New Guinea are used.
There are no additives and/or preservatives.
