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".
