It turns out that in at Walmart in Massachusetts, glucose tabs qualify as food items paid for by the EBT food stamp program. Walmart charges about $3.98 vs $5.30 at CVS for 50.
Cheaper alternatives to over priced glucose tabs that are also smaller & easier to carry with you. Lifesavers, Smarties,, jelly beans, Skittles.
Imagine that. Not bad idea for people who may need to get it that way.
I buy bags of smarties at Target.
