“Sabor Cid” Ice Cream opened a store in Havana

HAVANA, May 10  A well-known private company and local ice cream brand in Cuba, privately managed, identified as Helados Cid, opened a store in Havana,the Cuban capital, and ensure the increase in demand for their products, despite their high price.

According to a report on the 14ymedio website, the store reopened because it had been remodeling for several months and is located at 23 and H, in Havana’s Vedado, very close to the capital’s Coppelia, the former “Cathedral of Ice Cream” that spends more time closed than working.

This is not the case of private companies, whose production and investments grow every day.

It opened on May 3, after six months of repairs, under the slogan “Sabor Cid,” and customers did not stop coming to the center in search of their products, said the reporter from the aforementioned media.

Even one of the owners, the Cid brothers, approached the customers and asked about the quality of the ice cream and a professional photographer took the images of the reopening of the establishment and business.

What are the prices of this private ice cream company that is expanding in Havana? Well, it is the center of all their criticism, although they make the excuse that they must import products from Italy and this causes the cost to rise.

For example, the Copa Cid (2,250 pesos), Affogato Cid (790) and Dona Helada (960), also for 295 pesos you can eat the wafer with one scoop and 700 for the one with three scoops. It is also worth 760 pesos for a cone of two flavors and 1,875 pesos for a five glass. Keep in mind in comparison that the average retirement in Cuba is about 1,500 pesos.

“At the rate they are going with prices, I will be intolerant to CID ice cream. Very good quality, but prices are skyrocketing,” a customer on his networks said this month.

Given the shortage of state ice cream, the constant interruptions of Coppelia, and the lack of dairy products in the state industry, it is logical that private companies of this type will resurface and succeed, beyond the talent and dedication of a years-long tradition.

Other brands that dazzle and take over the capital, in terms of ice cream, would be other private ones such as Clamanta, Gustó, or Los Olivos.
