Wikipedia: Junior Mints
Junior Mints are a candy brand consisting of small rounds of mint filling inside a semi-sweet chocolate coating, with a dimple on one side. The mints are produced by Tootsie Roll Industries, and packaged in varying amounts from the so-called ‘fun-size box’ to the much larger 12 oz. box.
 
Wikipedia: York Peppermint Pattie
York Peppermint Pattie is an American dark chocolate enrobed peppermint confection introduced in 1940 and currently produced by the Hershey Company.

I think york peppermint patties are junior mints that grew up. Klondike bars are ones that got old, died and cryogenically frozen.
