Argentinian-style Alfajores at their BEST!
They're the 
perfect artisan
sweet treat to create memories that
will last a
We are proud to introduce our traditional heritage
to Christchurch.

Sweetargentos means Argentinian-style Alfajores at their BEST! With a vision to share our culture through artisan baked-to-order Alfajores (biscuits) and Masitas (cookies), we opened our online shop based in Christchurch, New Zealand, in December 2020.  In addition to local collection and delivery, we also ship our Alfajores nationwide, to Australia, the UK and now the USA.

Our Alfajores, which are pronounced "al.-fa.-ho-eres", consist of two delicate melt-in-your-mouth Argentinian-style biscuits made of a tasty combination of vanilla butter, citrus, lemon, and honey notes, sandwiched together with the traditional Dulce de leche (a caramel confection made from milk and sugar) and then hand-dipped in dark or white chocolate.  New: Gluten-free Belgian 56% Dark chocolate is now available.

Our Masitas Argentinian-style cookies, are the most delicious buttery biscuits, similar to Viennese sable cookies, perfectly decorated with chocolate and colourful sugar sparkles. 

We use the highest quality ingredients to create our confections including vegan (dairy and egg-free), and gluten-free.  Sweetargentos is a Christchurch Vegan Society Business Member.

We are committed to providing you and your loved ones with more than just delicious handmade treats. It is about bringing our Whānau and E hoa mā* together (*family and friends in the Maori language) as we do in Argentina when enjoying Alfajores and Mate, the traditional Argentinian tea, as we believe in creating memories that last a lifetime.

 Don’t take it from us – here’s what our customers have to say about our Alfajores!

I’d never tried alfajores before. They were incredible! Both beautiful and delicious. They came in a box with a see-through panel so I could admire their chocolatey goodness before giving way to temptation. I love that they’re made with almond flour. It gives them a real depth of flavour and wonderful texture. I also bought some for my vegan friend as a gift and she was thrilled.
