I’ll have the Pocky, please!


Washington State will begin taxing candy and gum in June. However, not everything you consider a candy is on the taxable list.  The Department of Revenue states “Any product that lists flour as an ingredient on the nutritional facts label is not taxable as candy.” Yes, we’re now living in a state where Twix and Nestle Crunch bars are not considered a candy by the government. Not only that, but regular Milky Way bars are not taxable (wheat flour) and Milky Way Midnights are. The spreadsheet is nicely thorough enough to include separate lists for Asian and Mexican candies.
