AHA! Is a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup (not roundish even; flat out round) a

Trying to stretch the prototype.

Perfect. It's only barely a candy bar for me, if that much. But it brings

up another question. It clearly says "cup" and not "bar" in its title,

which in this case seems to refer to its shape (roundish rather than

rectangular). Now I understand what a "fruit cup" is because it's often

served in cup-like servers; but what does cup mean for Reese's? I guess

not having a vaguely rectangular (even if rounded like Payday) shape

disqualifies candy from being a candy bar. But size has something to do

with this too -- I can imagine inch-long, chocolate covered rectangular

morsels that could not be called candy bars -- even "bite-sized".
