What you describe is a shop=newsagent . I wasn't aware of this tag
until four days ago when someone mentioned  on the Swiss mailing
list that some newsagents (k kiosk brand) are wrongly tagged as
shop=kiosk instead of shop=newsagent. Unfortunately, the word "Kiosk"
is also used for newsagents in German (or at least in Swiss German).
In my opinion, a shop that doesn't sell other food than snacks and
other non-food items than newspapers shouldn't be tagged
