How to Spot a Cuban in a Supermarket Abroad

How can you recognize a Cuban while shopping in a supermarket outside the island? This question was humorously answered in a viral video circulating on TikTok.

In the video, uploaded to the profile of Rosmeryprida0 on the mentioned social network, we see a Cuban in a supermarket in Spain, walking down an aisle and then stopping in front of a selection of rice and beans packages.

The funny part is that the Cuban begins to hoard several packages of these products, which are very popular in the island's culinary culture, and takes them in large quantities.

Although the video has brought smiles to many, this action is sadly reflective of a common behavior among Cuban citizens due to the scarcity they experience on the island. Many Cubans tend to stockpile food out of fear that it may be unavailable tomorrow.
