    Is this called biscuits or candy or chocolates?

    There are some kinds mix between biscuits, chocolates and candy.
    They are not completely biscuits nor chocolates nor candy.
    They usually come with long shape not circle shape
    and kids like to eat them.

    My question is:
    Is this called biscuits or candy or chocolates or another thing?

    I'd call them junk but they probably come under the heading "confectionery".

    In BrE, the second picture is definitely chocolate/chocolate bars.
    The picture with the question mark in the first link is some kind of chocolate wafer or chocolate biscuit.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    We'd call the second one "candy bars."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: Is this called biscuits or candy or chocolates?

    love-you-mom, please note that North Americans use 'candy' for all kinds of confectionery — what we Brits call sweets, toffee, lollipops, peanut brittle, rock, nougat, chocolate/s etc.

    In BE, 'candy' is rarely used. We have cough candy and candy floss (AE cotton candy), the metaphorical eye candy and arm candy, and that's about it.
