Have we started to tax milk?

One Sunday night I found I was out of milk so I went to a drug store offering food items. I had the quart of milk rung up by the cashier. Being the only item I purchased I had the exact amount. She asked for 8 cents more than the price of the milk. She told me that milk is taxable.

(Is Connecticut now taxing milk? Please enlighten me.)

Next time you go to a drug store that sells food items, check your receipt before you leave the store. You might be paying tax on items that most certainly should not be taxed.
