16 Surprising Foods and Items Black People Buy More Than Everybody Else

Though the Black community is certainly not a monolith, when Black people walk into stores there are certain products that they tend to purchase more than other groups. According to a report compiled by Nielsen last year on Black consumers, Black buying power continues to increase, expected to rise from its current $1 trillion level to a forecasted $1.3 trillion by 2017. But of the $75 billion spent on television, magazine, Internet and radio advertising, only $2.24 billion of it was spent with media focused on Black audiences — a shocking disparity, especially considering the high consumption patterns and behavioral trends of the Black consumer.
