Effective January 1, 2018, candy and soft drinks will no longer fall within the exemption for food and food ingredients.

Arkansas partially exempts "food" and "food ingredients," and currently the definitions for those items include candy and soft drinks. Beginning January 1, 2018, those definitions will specifically exclude candy and soft drinks.

Candy is any preparation of sugar, honey, or other natural or artificial sweeteners in combination with chocolate, fruits, nuts, or other ingredients in the form of bars, drops or pieces. Candy does not include items that contain flour or require refrigeration. Soft drinks are non-alcoholic beverages that contain natural or artificial sweeteners. Soft drinks do not include beverages that contain milk products, milk substitutes, or 50% or more juice by volume.
