"Hard candy"

As we discovered recently, the bon bon is a very ill-defined candy, and probably needs a Venn diagram.

When I was talking about it with dcseain, it turned out that we don't mean the same thing by "hard candy". I specifically take that to be candy made almost entirely out of sugar which is usually sucked, while dcseain includes caramels and, I think, at least some of what I consider taffy-- candies which are a chewy and possibly stuck-on-teeth experience.

We may be able to pin down a regional/cultural variation for "hard candy". "Bonbon", on the other hand, seems more like a subject for a dessertation.
