The five healthiest alfajores

Is there anything more delicious than two soft and crumbly cookies, filled with a creamy and smooth Dulce de Leche, covered with the most delicious milk chocolate? Your answer will be: probably another two soft and crumbly cookies also filled with creamy and smooth Dulce de Leche but sugar coated instead. Or maybe filled with a sweet and flavorful quince jelly? Yes, all of them sound perfect. The variety of Alfajores right now is endless.

They are definitely one of the main reasons life on earth is still worthy, but are they really keeping us alive? All of that sugar, carbs and calories, are they good for us? Today we are going to explore which Alfajores are the best and healthiest for your body and also for your happiness.

Even though we have a long and almost infinite list to choose from, we are going to narrow our options to the most famous and available ones.

First, on our sixth place we have one of the favorites by the general public. Chocolate Jorgito:

  • 220 Kcal
  • 55 gr/ 1.94 oz

Secondly, Alfajor Ser. This brand is famous by being one of the healthiest, but surprisingly it has more calories than other famous Alfajores we will mention later.

  • 183 Kcal
  • 47 gr/ 1.65 oz

In third place, another favorite one and quite controversial since a lot of people say it is an overrated Alfajor, but at the same time super desired, the chocolate and classic version of Capitan del Espacio:

  • 163 Kcal
  • 40 gr/ 1.4 oz

One of the favorites of the house: Tofi, the sugar coated version. Yes, sugar coated alfajores are amazing because their cookies are still as crumbly as always but also, the Dulce de Leche flavor is intensified by the soft sugar outside.

  • 156 Kcal
  • 44 gr / 1.55 oz

 And last but not least, the one and only sugar coated Terrabusi. Another popular favorite, and top from our list. It not only has less calories but also one of the most delicious and creamy Dulce de Leches from the country.

  • 142 Kcal
  • 38 grs / 1.34 oz

This is our selection of the five alfajores we believe are the healthiest for you. We know that the amount of calories is not equal to healthy, but they are definitely important to keep a complete and balanced diet.

We hope you can use this information to your favor, adding alfajores to your everyday meal plans to enjoy a little sweetness.

"Pampa Direct is a fantastic online provider of Argentinian products. I ordered a couple of Yerba Mate teas and their gourd with a bombilla. I’ve received a huge package from Argentina in about a week after my order (and I live in Europe). The shipping was extremely fast and all the products arrived well-wrapped and in great condition. I didn’t expect that, honestly. I’ve been drinking Yerba Mate teas since 2015 and I’ve tried a lot of them. Pampa Direct has a great variety of products, fast worldwide shipping, and awesome customer support. You can easily find lots of positive reviews about their products."

"Pampa Direct is a new store selling yerba mate, and it’s already the best one I’ve come across. They ship worldwide, have the largest selection of brands (brands no other store sells online), and some of the lowest prices I’ve ever seen. After submitting my order I was quickly sent a confirmation email. Then, the next day, an email with my tracking link. My package was delivered in just 4 days (May 13 – May 17). It arrived in a large cardboard box, I hurried to open it and was happy to see everything in perfect condition. Everything from the products they offer, the purchasing process, the shipping times, the prices, and even the customer support were all exceptionally great. Overall, a wonderful experience from beginning to end without even the slightest problem. If you haven’t shopped at Pampa Direct yet, you’re wasting your time and money elsewhere."

"In Italy it was impossibile to find high-quality, handmade mates. Now, thanks to Pampa Direct, everything an Italian matero could desire is easily avalaible in Italy, our 'Belpaese'. Fabulous personalized imperial mate gourds with an almighty traditional big bombilla. That is what I got, but you can purchase -or request!- everything a real mate lover would have. Thank you Pampa Direct! You are the best professionals in the business!"
