We're told Flav asked to buy a pack of grape-flavored Swisher Sweets ... when the clerk asked Flav for identification proving he was of age.

Flav respectfully obliged ... and tells TMZ, "I wasn’t bothered ... I was flattered that she asked me for my ID" ... adding, "The woman was there doing what she had to do, her job.”
