    A simple choice, but I LOVE chupa chup lollipops. If someone were to give me thousands of them I'll be able to finish them all ;)

    To this day I am still annoyed at C.S Lewist for making me think Turkish Delight was some amazing thing that was totally worth selling your entire family for. Learning that it was basically gelatin covered in powdered sugar really messed me up.

    ...That being said, I think it counts as candy in the same way fudge counts as a candy.

    I think there is a difference between a candy and a confection. There may be some overlap, but I don't think Turkish Delight falls in that area. I guess I wouldn't consider fudge to be candy either though.

    I legit had to look into this to figure out what a candy is. It's a subset of confectionary where sugar is the primary ingredient, and chocolates are recognizes as a whole different subset, so technically chocolates aren't even properly "candy". Neither are caramels.

    Technically the only things in the thread so far that are 100 percent for sure recognized as candies are war heads, chupa chups, and possibly wine gums.

    ...So I'm fine if DH wants to choose Turkish Disappointments.

    I draw a line here. Potatoes are not candy.
