Mum sparks debate after she started eating supermarket shopping before paying at till

She had posted a video on TikTok about her recent grocery shop

A mum has sparked a debate after she started eating her supermarket shopping before paying at the till, with some saying the move was ‘so real’, while others criticised her for consuming the goods before handing over the cash.

Mum vlogger Cecily Bauchmann (@cecilybauchmann) posted a video on TikTok about her recent grocery shop, having taken fans along with her as she stocked up.

“We have to grocery shopping, I have no food,” she said in the car before heading into the store.

“Kids are in school, we need snacks, we need breakfast, we need lunch, we need dinners...”

At one point, she picked up a packet up spicy salmon roll sushi, saying as she dropped it into the trolley: “I’m starving.”

She picked up some sushi while shopping for the weekly groceries.

However, after dropping a few more items in the trolley, Bachmann couldn’t help but grab the sushi from her trolley and open it up.

“So, so hungry,” she told the camera sheepishly, continuing to shop as she chomped on more pieces.

By the time she got to the checkout and starting putting products onto the conveyer belt to be scanned, the sushi packet was empty.

However, she couldn't resist tucking in.

"I also opened this in-store,” she told the checkout clerk.

“I'm sorry, I was so hungry."

Luckily, the clerk didn’t seem too fussed, telling Bauchmann: "I can just scan it, you're good."

The original video racked up 1.5 million views, but it was soon overshadowed by her follow-up video, which was just the clip of her handing over the empty sushi container to the cashier.

Luckily, the cashier took it well.

She titled the video, which had 4.3 million views, ‘Grocery shopping reality’, adding in the caption: “OPENING FOOD IS A NORMAL THING AT THE GROCERY STORE K?”

Many found the move super relatable, but others weren’t quite so impressed.

“The opening the sushi in the store is so real,” one person commented.

Someone else said: “Eating food in the grocery store when you’re hungry is a necessity sometimes.”

Another wrote: “I mean if ur gonna pay for it what’s the prob.”

But others didn’t think it was a great idea, with one pointing out: “What if your card declines and you’ve already eaten it?”

Another wrote: “Never done this, taught to never do this.”

One other person said: “I never do that because I can wait a few minutes to at least get to the car.”

Weighing in on the debate from the other side of the till, someone else explained: “When I’m a cashier I get annoyed sometimes when people hand me their trash to scan lol.”
