As I understand, most Cuban’s have such a low income level that even if these good are no longer “banned”, most won’t be able to afford them anyway, at least not legally.

But then again, knowing they exist and that they can be purchased for a price will, I would think, stimulate the underground economy that probably already exists on some level.

But we should not mistake consumerism with capitalism. China has become a big “consumer” but they are in no way capitalists – at least not the type of capitalists that is good for a free society.
