Italy is known as a producer of high-quality gourmet chocolates. The Piedmont region is considered the largest Italian center for chocolate production, with the capital, Torino, responsible for the creation of the renowned chocolate-hazelnut Gianduja spread. Piedmont is also the birthplace of Cremino: three-layer chocolate with gianduja outer layers with a coffee, lemon, or hazelnut paste filling. Italian chocolate is famous for being rich and creamy but well-balanced and not overly sweet.
The history of Sperlari goes way back to 1836 when Enea Sperlari opened up a little shop in the center of Cremona to pursue his culinary dreams. The unmatched quality of his torrone and mostarda quickly conquered the hearts of not only the entire city but even Giuseppe Verdi, renowned Italian composer - who frequently visited Cremona to stock up on Sperlari treats. Thanks to the finest quality and distinctive flavors, Sperlari became famous worldwide for its soft Italian torrone, cremonelli, and tempting sweets.
Sperlari’s Assorted Chocolate Truffles are an excellent pick-me-up for any time of the day. Enjoy the candies on the go, or settle down with a cup of hot coffee or tea after dessert - they’ll be good either way.
