This is bizarre. Never in my life would I ever consider peanut butter cups to be a bar, because it's not a bar. It's a cup.

So bizarre.

Its a candy bar.

"A Rose by any other name would smell as sweet"

If I think about getting a candy bar while I am filling up my car with gasoline, a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup is near or at the top of the list.

This, with one caveat; it is pronounced REEsez, so as to rhyme with pieces. Hence, Reese's Pieces. NOT REEseez, so as to rhyme with feces.

You can call it a candy bar, a disk like confection, or any damned thing else that tickles your fancy, but for the love of sweet chocolate, do not say Reesy's

And since we're (sorta) on the subject, the man's name that sounds like "Reese" is spelled "Rhys". Bloody illiterates!

This has been the most fascinating thread. A lot of "well, I get that it is not technically a candy bar, not being a bar and all, but I think I'll call it a candy bar anyway because reasons."

I assume that's the very reason for the OP, because it is a conundrum of sorts.

I've never pondered it before, though I've always classified it in my mind as a candy bar. Mostly because of context, as others have mentioned, and also because it's packaged and , um, selfcontained (?) the way a traditional candy bar is.

The issue is that some people are using candy bar to mean candy that is in bar form and others use candy bar to mean single serving retail unit of candy, or possibly dividing candy into candy pieces such as skittles, m&ms and necco wafers and everything else is a 'candy bar'.

Not candy, because peanut butter is not candy and it's not a bar shape either. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are either entrees or appetizers, depending upon when they are served.

Although, if we are going it insist that a candy bar be actually in a 'bar' shape then we are going to have to find new names for a lot of candy. Would a Payday be a candy bar? It's more of a log shape to me.

It wouldn't be the only candy bar with peanuts or peanut butter in it.

Peppermint Patty is obviously a character from Peanuts. Which is ironic because the candy involves no peanuts, just coconut. Is coconut a nut? Or a fruit? And what do you call those cacao things? Is chocolate a vegetable or a fruit?

Peppermint patty? Of course that's not a candy bar. Madness, I tell you. For a brief period, sanity was winning this poll, but we're back to the "yes"es taking the lead.

Yes, it's a candy bar to me. In my personal lexicon, "candy bar" is a compound phrase. Whether or not something is a "candy bar" to me depends more on what it's made of and what section it's sold in, not the literal shape of the confection.

Does this mean that for those who feel a reeses cup is not a candy bar, if I softened a cup and smushed it into a rectangular shape, it would now be a candy bar? If I took a milky way and warmed it until I was able to shape it into a sphere, is it no longer a candy bar? Or is it a deformed candy bar?

If you solidify the peanut butter to give it rigidity, then mold it into a rectangular solid and coat it with chocolate, then it would be a "candy bar."

The Milky Way would be a "deformed mass of candy."

As for the Payday example prior, it is still a "candy bar," since bars can be cylindrical. Bars cannot, however, be cup-shaped.

Why does the peanut butter need to be solidified? It's more solid than milky way or 3 musketeers filling.

Exactly. Part of the point of a candy bar, as I mentioned above, is its convenience in eating. You can peel the wrapper back, hold it in one hand, and eat it as needed while doing another activity. Like the whole point of sandwich. Hold your sandwich in one hand, your cards in the other (okay, we might have a problem when playing a card. Then hold your sandwich/candy bar in one hand, the steering wheel in the other). You can do the same with a candy bar. You can't do it easily with a Reese's. It is not a candy bar in shape, nor utility. To me, the entire fucking point of a candy bar is that I can easily eat it one bite at a time, as needed, with one hand.

I'm exaggerating for effect. Still, for my working definition, that is where and why I draw the line there. A candy bar is a snack of convenience, and eating a Reese's is a little more finicky and (given that it's not even shaped like a bar), it goes into the "other confectionary" category for me, like mini-chocolates or those Ferraro Rocher balls or truffles, etc.

To you. I get that to you this is how it is. But language is not so easily defined. This poll is like something from a linguistics class, designed to spark just this kind of discussion. And it can spark this kind of discussion precisely because people have different usages of the term and therefore different opinions on whether this particular example qualifies. Its not about right or wrong if we're talking linguistics, since linguistics is descriptive rather than prescriptive, like grammar or English language studies. So your opinion is perfectly valid, but so is everyone else's. And right now the yes's are winning, so maybe that should tell you something.

Yes, I know how linguistics works. I'm a descriptivist. I'm playing along a bit here. It's pretty much evenly divided, which is, actually, pretty interesting to me. I would not have guessed it would be that down the middle.

What about 100 Thousand Grand bars? Or Mounds or Almond Joys? They come two to a "bar". Don't they count as candy bars?

I was actually thinking about those. Those are probably still just outside what I would consider a "candy bar" by my definition. I admit, it's a much grayer area for me than Reese's.

I find this whole discussion fascinating.

And the bag of Reese cups in the next room waiting for Halloween is killing me!

If you count the Reese's cups as a "Candy bar" then you would have to consider Rolo's one, too--they are sold in the same location at similar price points, partially consist of chocolate, and generally fill the other criteria that constitute the reasons or "exceptions" people who voted Yes are providing.

And if you consider Rolo's a candy bar, that is just plain stupid.

I only commented because some of your statements came off a bit rigid, and incredulous at the very idea that anyone could see it differently.

I thought that and the pretty even results of the survey was a pretty noteworthy juxtaposition. That's all.

Well, Rolo is bar shaped. Is it disqualified just because the foil is utilized differently than in most candy bars? It has the same ingredients, and the correct shape. So you must be factoring in the foil location?

I'm just curious and want to see how this thread plays out, so this is partly devil's advocate here.

What you can take seriously, though, is that I'm surprised a majority of posters (at the moment) consider it a candy bar. That really is surprising to me. I want to post the question on my Facebook and see what non-dopers say. ETA: OK, I put it up exactly as this: "Question: Do you consider Reese's Peanut Butter Cups a candy bar?" Let's see what my folks say (although I probably expect no more than 20 replies.)

More like, do you refuse to use the term, "dial the phone"? Or adhere only to the ancient Roman definition of "decimate"?

Too many little pieces. I rule out M&Ms and Skittles etc under the same criteria.

Well, so far my Facebook survey is 2-to-1 in favor of Reese's being candy bars. I may very well be on the wrong side of usage here.

ETA:Oh, we've pulled even. Will have to wait at least 12 hours for the next meaningful update.

Yes, because the individual parts are still, in themselves, roughly bar-shaped. It's close, though -- if they were much squatter, they would be venturing into peanut butter cup territory.

I'm surprised too. I really expected upon clicking on the survey that it would be something like 9 to 1 "not a candy bar".

I was challenging pulykamell's assertion that candy bars are defined the being one piece that she could eat the entirety of in one hand.

And what about Big Hunk and Look? Obviously candy bars. And you can even eat them pulykamell's way if you happen to have steel jaws*. But the proper way to eat them, as recommended on the wrapper, is to smash them into bite-size pieces.

*In which case what are you doing sitting around eating candy? Shouldn't you be out chasing down James Bond?
