In English we often say "candy" to refer to several pieces of candy. In that case, shouldn't "there is candy inside" be accepted?

Yes, I reported that.

Candy in british english is sweets. That should also be accepted.

Might a native Hebrew speaker say
"יש ממתק בפנים"
when there are multiple pieces inside, the way an American might say "there is candy inside"?
