Spumoni originated in Italy and today is popular in places with large Italian immigrant populations, such as the United States. National Spumoni Day is celebrated in the United States on August 21.
Spumoni is a dessert made up of differently coloured layers of ice cream, typically three, containing candied fruits and nuts and often mixed with whipped cream. Originally, Spumoni were made with a surrounding layer of sponge cake. Traditional Spumoni are made with cherry, pistachio and vanilla or chocolate ice cream. The American Neopolitan ice cream is a popular type of Spumoni made with vanilla, strawberry and chocolate ice cream.
