I Wonder What Fanny Farmer Candies Are Called in the UK?

American Colloquialism / British Swear Word: I was recently corrected by a dear friend from the UK. Apparently you do NOT want to tell someone from the UK that you just "spanked your kid's fanny" because "fanny" is a euphemism for female nether regions over there and does NOT have the same connotation as it has on this side of the puddle. You have been warned.
