This traditional Vaucluse confectionery is one of the oldest sweets in France. And one of the most colorful! Pyramidal in shape, the berlingot displays its different colors to better indicate its taste: anise, mint, apple, violet, melon, fig, all made from natural fruit syrups. Its white stripes are the result of adding sugar that has been cooked for a long time and beaten. Legend has it that it was Bertrand de Got, who became Clement V (the first Pope of Avignon), who gave his name to this Provencal sweetness. For a long time, the berlingots were prepared from the syrup obtained from the manufacture of candied fruits, it is now glucose syrup which is used to bring these candies to life.
