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".
