I would drain the fuel from the tank ,because candy bars are mostly sugar and this will seize up your engine.  So to be on the safe side I'd refill her with new fuel

Sorry Bif, any nuts or large pieces would be strained by the tank filter and the other ingredients would go to the bottom like sugar. Sugar will not seize an engine, but it might cause it to die, as it may eventually clog the fuel filter, even that would take a while. However, like sand, it would likely sink to the bottom and just sit there and remain. Sugar does not dissolve in gasoline. In fact, Mythbusters found that the engine ran better after sugar was added to the gas tank.
