Date: Thu, 28 Sep 1995 07:53:18 -0500 From: wachal robert s Subject: candy bar According to the SHORTER OED (1993) 'candy bar' is N. Amer. for "a bar of toffee or other sweet substance, a bar of chocolate" Sounds like Heath Bara and Hershey Bars have the inside track. Like Lynne, I have not been able to find it in a U.S. dictionary. Does anyone remember Candy Barr? Bob Wachal
