"Despite having Spanish & Basque ancestry I had no idea "Alfajor" meant "Brick". To say this dessert is "firm" is akin to saying that the Titanic "leaked a little". If you buy it be ready to use a table saw to slice it"

"I should have read the reviews before I bought this cake. It was SO hard to slice that I thought it was stale. This is not for anyone with weak teeth."

"The cake was hard as a rock & really difficult to slice. The flavor was okay, not great. It was a big disappointment when we served it as part of dessert Christmas day. "

"not for those who don't like anise flavor, also very hard to cut, otherwise, an enjoyable delight"
