The 21st of August is Spumoni Day.
If you missed Soft Ice Cream Day two days ago, you have another excuse today to have ice cream.
It’s Spumoni Day, all day today!
You have two choices: you can try the Italian dessert called Spumoni, which has some ice cream in it, or you can try the North American ice cream called “Spumoni.”
If you’re not sure what the difference is, you can click through to read all about Spumoni in its various guises.
Today is a great excuse to have either.
The earliest print mention of a Spumoni Day that CooksInfo is aware of dates from 2001 in San Francisco:
“21: National Spumoni Day. Spumoni is one heck of a tricky dessert, a frozen, molded concoction of ice cream, rum-laced whipped cream, toasted nuts and candied fruit.” — August. National Month Month. San Francisco, California: The San Francisco Examiner. Wednesday, 1 August 2001. Page C3, col. 2.
