  • Yeah, I think there should be restrictions on what you can and can't buy. Sodas, candy, chips, etc aren't necessities for life.

  • That wouldn't be a bad idea. I am on food stamps right now until I can get to college and start my career. I don't buy soda on them. I also think that you shouldn't be able to buy candy on them.

  • I don't think they should be able to use food stamps for soda. But I thought they're were only certain things they could buy anyway?

  • Hobbits.. do you think children don't deserve candy & snacks sometimes just because their parents need a little help?

  • Lemme add I don't buy Coke on my foodstamps. I buy food. My husband buys me a case of Coke when he gets his paycheck.
