Subject: Re: candy & measurements - take 3

As far as candy bars go, if it isn't chocolate, why bother? My feeling,

terminology-wise, is that if it's about the right shape, it's a candy bar.

Who else remembers the Big Daddy taffy candy bars that we got in the movies

because they would last the whole time?


I remember the Big Daddy taffy. My dad has a grocery store back home,

and he sells them. I can't believe those things are still being sold. I

think that the theatre downtown sells it, but I'm not for sure.

Someone mentioned the stove/range usage. I am from Louisville. And

back home if we want a drink we say "coke". It basically due to the fact that

whatever product is out first, that is the name that you use (ex. Klennex for

tissue or Xerox for a copier). Well, at school, which is a small town, they

say "pop" cause of the sound that a can makes when you open it. I can't get

use to the change. I am starting to say "pop" instead of "coke" because I am

down here more than I am back home and my friends say it.
