"La fragola è lo spuntino."

Translation:The strawberry is the snack.

Is "spuntino" in the same family as the word "spontaneous"?


That would make sense. It comes from the Latin word sponte, meaning "of one's free will". I guess a snack is just something you eat in the middle of the day because you feel like it.
