Does your state tax sugar?

I just moved to Texas and was buying groceries. The first thing I rung up (self checkout) was my pepsi.  I looked at the price and  wasn't sure why it was more than listed.  Anyway I asked a worker what the deal was and I guess anything with sugar is taxed?   I moved from a state where no grocery store food was taxed  (cold/not served, If you got a chicken order from deli they prob taxed it).

Sort of. NY state has always charged tax on candy, soda and fruit punches and juice cocktails. The tax however is dropped if someone pays with food stamps.

100% juice is not taxed, neither are cereals, cakes or things like that.

No. There is a tourist tax in some towns, but that's it.

Nope. We have a prepared food tax. Like you said a cooked chicken or any reasturant. Other then that anything you buy is the price it says. I live in new hampshire.
