  • About
Simpler ice cream desserts are formed with layers of different ice creams, usually in a rectangular loaf-cake shape that is easily sliced. The Neopolitan is composed of two or more different flavored and colored ice creams, often vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate. Pückler is a German variation on the Neopolitan, including layers of crushed macarons soaked in liqueur along with the ice cream layers. Viennetta, a globally available Unilever product, is made of extruded rippled layers of ice cream alternated with sprayed layers of compound chocolate. It is available in various flavor combinations.
