Sapore della Vita / Lick My Spoon
Sarasota, Florida

Sapore Della Vita, in Italian, means 'Taste of Life' and was started by Fabio Gaioni and Kristine Insalaco-Gaioni. They source organic, all natural products from small artisanal producers from all over Italy and share these in their online store. Under their stateside brand Lick My Spoon, Kristine also concocts the most delicious confections, and a few of our favorites found their way into our February Box.


The first time we opened Sapore Della Vita's website, we wanted to eat everything they sold! (Open their website, you'll see). There was creamed honey made by two brothers in Asiago, balsamic vinegars sourced from Modena, as well as their housemade Pistachio Cream, Hazelnut cream and many more confections that made us drool. Also, we wanted to raid their store and eat, well, everything!


For our February Food Box ('The Sweetest Things') we chose two products: Toronne, and the Totally Fudged Chocolate Sauce. Like everything we've tasted from their store, these taste as delicious as they sound. But don't take our word for it. Experience them for yourself! Sapore della Vita won not one or two but three Good Foods Awards in January 2016 (for the amazing Toronne, Totally Fudged Chocolate Sauce and Caramel Sauce).


We also highly recommend the Hazelnut Cream (we were depressed when we finished our jar) and their award winning Caramel Sauce.

What's your favorite thing about being a small business owner?

My favorite thing about being a small business owner is the excitement of seeing our dream develop each day. It is really wonderful to see our dreams come true.

Where can we find you when you are not working on delicious confections for Sapore Della Vita / Lick my spoon?

You can find me enjoying time with my husband Fabio, one thing we are truly enjoying is practicing kite surfing, on our beautiful beaches in Sarasota. These winter months in Florida are the best time of the year for this sport due to the wind levels.

What's a super power you'd love to have?

I would love to be able to fly. Be free to fly when and where I want as I love to travel.

A fun fact about you?

I have a very cute Bostonian accent

Could you tell us your favorite dish?

My favorite dish to share with my husband is risotto. He loves my blueberry and strawberry. They are actually savory, and my husband absolutely loves them.
