Was in IGA next to KMART and noticed a big sign that says "Red Bull On EBT!!"

Not only are they taking it but they sure are advertising it.

My only question is how is this legal at one store and not another. I am a cashier at Walmart and we are not allowed to sell it on EBT.

Red Bull has no nutritional value, except for the slight buzz it can give u if u drink enough.

That sir, is the question. Crazy isn't it?

Now, I do not blame the Food Stamp benefit holders.

As a cashier, I see MANY MANY MANY Transactions with EBT and I must say.. Most of the customers buy what they should be buying. Not that it is my business what they should be buying but.. I see nothing wrong with what they purchase.

The store itself should be ask the question proposed here. In fact, I may just call and ask.

I agree. I can't see much difference between pop, tea or Red Bull. You don't really need any of them.

actually i think its a shame for people to begrudge these people little things like this in life. and as far as the mighty tax dollar paying for it well i am sure most of those people would be happy to work and let the one complaining use the ebt card

Not everyone getting EBT sits on their butts. I know several hard working single mothers who are on food stamps because their jobs do not pay enough to make ends meet. So before you judge everyone by the majority, educate yourself.
happy and i know it

I dont understand why anyone gives a shit about somebody you don't know buying red bull with an ebt card. How bored and lame do u have to be to judge a complete stranger for buying an energy drink with foodstamps.

Because I`m over 60 worked all my life ..never asked for anything but allways helped a person in need as long it would help them in a good manner or KID`S..I don`t give money away nor should the people I pay tax`s to.. I do think that some need help for a short term ( I have met and helped them) But I see to many that want a Free Ride..

A cart full of JUNK FOOD...You could have got 10 lbs of Potatoes for that 8 pack of pepsi..ON and ON
