Neapolitan means “from Naples” (which is in Italy), but Neapolitan ice cream means simply three specific flavors of ice cream
placed next to each other: strawberry
, and chocolate
. There seems to be a lengthy etymology about its introduction to the United States
, which is uninteresting in its entirety.
Neapolitan ice cream is super fun because it is three flavors in one, and they haven’t been made into a homogenous mess (mixed). The colors of the treat are very elegant; They are at once timeless, and yet, reminiscent of a time forgotten.
