Not exactly.

Why use the Spanish word when speaking English?
The two words allow a useful distinction to be made between actually being "Spanish" (i.e. relating to Spain) and the more general case of simply relating to spanish-speaking culture.

And isn't the word "Latino" or "Latina" simply the Spanish word for the English word Latin?
I believe it's short for latinoamericano.

I've also never heard anyone of Latin American descent refer to themself as "Spanish."

Sometimes supermarkets have fruit cut open and wrapped. Though it seems to be done primarily to allow people to purchase a smaller portion, it does allow you to see the inside of one of the fruits.
