Sperlari has been carrying on the great Italian confectionery tradition, creating products capable of giving moments of happiness, excellent and unique since 1836.  Their roots are linked to the traditions of the territory.

From nougat to mostarda and candies: the brands that make up the Sperlari family have their history and uniqueness, but always keeping updated about innovations.

La Pasticca del Re Sole is one of Sperlari’s brands, a symbol of tradition since 1918.

The origin of its name – in English Sun King’s Pill comes from an idea of the entrepreneur who launched it on the market.

He was inspired by his great-grandfather’s recipe book, which contained the ingredients of an anti-cough candy, signed by Fra Giacomo the Portuguese, a pharmacist at Sun King’s court.
