"Spumoni, or spumone (from spuma "foam"), is a molded Italian ice cream made with layers of different colors and flavors, usually containing candied fruits and nuts. Typically it is of three flavors, with a fruit/nut layer between them. The ice cream layers are often mixed with whipped cream. Chocolate and pistachio are the typical flavors of the ice cream layers, and the fruit/nut layer often contains cherry bits—causing the traditional red/pink, brown, and green color combination. This dish comes from Naples, and the three-flavored Neapolitan ice cream evolved from it. Spumoni is virtually unknown in Italy today, but it is popular in places with large Italian immigrant populations such as the United States and Argentina. "
