Here in the northwest we have a candy bar called the "Mountain Bar" which
is neither bar shaped nor longer than wide. It's more like a lump. Never
heard it refered to as anything but a candy bar.
I would not refer to M&Ms or Reese's Pieces or even Reese's Peanut Butter
Cups as candy bars. At first I thought the distinction had to do with the
fact that the items in question had to be individually wrapped and come in
one piece--but then I remembered Almond Joy, which I consider a candy bar.
Back to the drawing board.

The big, round peppermint patties I'm
not so sure about. They're borderline.
