Food stamps can be used to buy anything considered a 'grocery item'. The only things that can not be purchased with food stamps is non-food items, alcohol, diapers, pre-prepared food and cigarettes. Basically anything at Kroger can be purchased except the above mentioned items. I disagree with this rule. I think that food stamps should be used to buy FOOD. I think the people that use food stamps to buy candy, soda, and other unhealthy type foods are abusing the system. There should be changes to the food stamps. They should only be able to purchase things like fruits, vegetables, meat, dairy, and grains. There should be a rule that makes food stamp users buy a certain amount of food from the FDA regulated food pyramid each month. If you look at someone with food stamps and someone without, the person with food stamps is 9 times out of 10 unhealthy and overweight. I was a food stamp user myself a while ago and DID NOT use them to buy candy, pop, chips, ect. I would budget them just like anything else. I got things like meat, bottled water, fruits, and vegetables. I am sad to see how the food stamps are misused by so many. I am not saying that all people with food stamps abuse them. I am just saying I wish the government would regulate what can be purchased with them. They regulate so many other things, why not add foodstamps to the list too.

Ummm no. If you research all the junk in tap water you would drink bottled water too. Plus its so much healthier than drinking soda. I didn't come on here bashing anybody. I was simply stating the facts and my opinion. Everyone IS entitled to their opinion just so you know.

Hi Erica, nice to meet you. Are you one of those lazy, welfare negroes? You have quite a foul mouth, so I am assuming you are. You should mind your place, and stop being so uppity
