Quick Reference

Neapolitan ice is a block of ice cream made in layers of different flavours and colours: a typical combination is strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate. The name seems to have come simply from the high reputation Italians, and particularly Neapolitans, had as ice-cream makers in the nineteenth century. It first appears in English in the 1890s, and to begin with is found only in American texts.
