Candies are foods usually prepared from molten sugar. These are consumed mostly in its solid and to a lesser extent in its liquid presentation which is sometimes used as a cover for other preparations such as custard.
To the solid candies also known as lollipops or popsicles are usually added fruit flavor, some herb or sometimes even antibacterial drugs or painkillers.
Candy is often a favorite among children because of its pleasant sweet taste and color. This is why manufacturers seek to use bright colors for their products.
