He's right there are lowlife scumbags using state aid cards to buy $3.00 drinks from gas stations. I've seen people using those cards while they jaw away on tjeir iPhones from AT&T.

I would love to have some food stamps. Stamps Rock. OMG Energy drinks. Seriously who cares what people buy with there food stamp cards. I think they should go back to paper. We could go back into cashing them in for change. LOL Please people get a life & when we all figure out how to get some Stamps. We can have a cook out & drink cases of red bull. Party on.

I can tell your useless to society. I hope that our taxes aren't paying for you to drink red bull. Providing water is way more than i want to pay on your behalf. grow up and get a job and a life mister.

okay so my question is why can i buy RED BULL with my EBT but not other energy drinks such as Rockstar or monster? no one can seem to explain it to me.

Now I don't abuse my food stamp card with energy drinks and candy but if i choose to buy a RED BULL before work it's no one's business but my own.

BUT WHY DOES RED BULL GET APPROVED AND OTHER ENERGY DRINKS DENIED? Nutrition facts? if anyone knows please let me know, thank you.

why is the attitude on here always " who cares what they're doing, just mind your business"??
What happened to Justice? Food Stamps are meant to be used for FOOD, not your precious addictive substances. Someone needs to report the businesses allowing such transactions.

How about getting off your ass and getting a job then you can buy it by the case! No wait, if you actually had to work to pay for something you might think twice about paying $3 for it.

Red Bull can be bought with EBT only cause of a small loophole they found in the system. Basically, as long as their nutrition label says "nutritional facts" it is considered food by government standards. AMP, RockStar and Monster are still labeled as "supplemental facts", hence they are a supplement. however, in the end, think it's the individual store's that choose whether to honor this or not.

I am a cashier at a store. I see people all the time use food stamps to buy Red Bull. These are the same ones that bring in handfuls of change to buy their cigarettes, they will have a few little kids with them and refuse to buy the kids anything to eat or drink. They will also buy a lot of lottety tickets...It burns me up that I am working my a** off, making minimun wage and barely getting by. And to watch the laziest, nastiness humans on earth use a government card to buy energy drinks, the whole system is SO screwed up!!!

i would pay $1.00 cash for every $2.00 worth of food stamps if someone would sell them, that way you could buy drugs, beer, energy drinks, whatever, with the cash and i can get double the amount of food. everybody wins!

If you want to try a REAL energy drink try finding some Neurofuel if you've never tried any.It's made in Knoxville and it actually helps dopamine and seratonin creation and thus gives you mental alertness/energy.It's kind of hard to find in our region but easily found from Johnson City on through TN. and you can also order it via Amazon.com .
