re: Lynne's last comments on (bar of) chocolate--

I've been thinking about Peppermint Patties (by York, not Chas. Schulz),

which are round, about 2.5 in in diameter (how many cm?), wrapped in silver

foil....I can almost taste them....anyway, to me they are definitely not

bars. But what then are they? Patties, I guess, though that doesn't seem

like a label I would use in informally discussing them.
