>> To some extent this is how we do it in CA. It does result in some oddities - A brownie is taxed, but brownie mix isn't for example... <<

Others I remember from California (at least this is how it was as of 2003 when we left the state):

Popped popcorn is taxable but unpopped kernels were not.

If you go to a sandwich shop and order to eat at the establishment, it's always taxable, but if you order "to go" it's NOT taxable *if it's a cold sandwich*. Hot sandwiches are always taxed as are sandwiches eaten on the premises. Cold "to go" orders are tax-exempt.

Odd stuff. Who thinks of these things?
