The Sweet History Of Neapolitan Ice Cream

When you can't choose just one flavor, Neapolitan ice cream comes to the rescue! Neapolitan is the tasty trifecta of classic ice cream flavors -- vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry -- that ice cream lovers have enjoyed for decades. But where did this classic originate? Let's find out!

How It Started

It turns out that the origins of Neapolitan ice cream date back to the late 1800s when Neapolitan immigrants in America had quite a bit of knowledge about desserts. One of the desserts they introduced to America was spumoni -- Italian ice cream that contains three flavors of ice cream that are molded (often including pistachio and chocolate) with fruits and nuts in between each layer. The "Neapolitan-style ice cream" took on the popular American flavors --vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry, becoming the trio ice cream flavor that is beloved today.

How It's Going

Of course, we bet Neapolitan immigrants in the 1800's wouldn't have guessed that their ice cream creation would have been enjoyed freeze-dried too. Imagine how shocked they would have been to try ice cream that has the classic Neapolitan taste, isn't cold, melts in your mouth, and requires no refrigeration. It's mind blowing!
