A sweet tooth could cost you more in Massachusetts.
Gov. Deval Patrick wants to charge sales tax on candy and soda. Both are currently exempt.
Patrick rolled out the proposal as part of his budget.
His administration claims tacking on the 6.25% sales tax to sweets would bring in $57 million in revenue to the state.
Patrick has offered up this plan before, but it has failed in the legislature.
