The Power of Flour

Picture this. You are in line to check-out at you local grocery store and you find yourself wanting a sweet treat. Be sure to reach for Kit Kats or Twix, instead of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups or Snickers -- that is, if you want to have a tax-free treat. Why is this? The answer depends on one of its ingredients - flour.

Since Kit Kats and Twix contain flour, they are defined as a grocery item and not a candy item. According to one article, "In most states, anything with flour is considered a grocery, and therefore not taxable."
