Comments: Neapolitan Strawberries

Comments

I have often wondered why Neapolitan ice cream was so named, and this seems plausible.

Good research.

According to my Larousse Gastronomique (which I adore, by the way) the Neapolitan slice is a slice of ice cream cake traditionally with the strawberry, vanilla and chocolate combination and was popular in 19th century Paris. So it's not an American derivation!

Barrett, as for the berries starting to leak juices, wouldn't that just be due to their contact with sugar?

The flag of Naples under Napoleon was indeed black, red, and white.
