What are the limitations?

what can't you purchase with foodstamps? can you purchase seasonings, icecream, yogurt, etc.? I know you can only purchase food items and there are restrictions such as hot food, but are there any others?

  • No hot foods from the deli. No alcohol or tobacco, no nonfood items. You can buy anything else, including spices and formula. You can even buy the foods on the salad bar and deli case.
