NATIONAL SPUMONI DAY
Happily celebrated across the United States each August 21, it is National Spumoni Day.
Spumoni is a molded Italian ice cream that is made with layers of different colors and flavors that usually contain candied fruits, such as cherry bit, and nuts. The typical flavors are cherry, pistachio and either chocolate or vanilla. These ice cream layers are often mixed with whipped cream.
- Spumoni originated in Naples, Italy and was introduced to the United States in the late 1800′s.
- Differing from ice cream, Spumoni is sliced and never scooped.
- Neapolitan flavored ice cream was inspired by Spumoni.
