I have been searching around the net, but I can’t find a good source for certain terms. Specifically:

Amer (Bitter?)

Napolitain

amer is french for bitter, yes.

napolitain i am less sure of. i think it means a assortment or mixture. in germany they use the term for an ice cream that is made of a stripe of strawberry, a stripe of vanilla and a stripe of chocolate. and i think amedei uses it for their crus.
so mixture or assortment is just a guess.
a good place to look for pretty good translations is: http://www.wordreference.com

Alex, I think the ice cream reference is “Neopolitan.” I’m not too sure if there is any deviation of difference in spelling, but over here, Neopolitan is the three flavored ice cream.
