I wrote "sweets" instead of "candies", which a non-American probably wouldn't use but is pretty standard elsewhere, and it counted as incorrect.
You should report it.
In America we use "sweets" to refer to candies, cookies, cake, etc... For example, a dentist might tell you to eliminate "sweets" as a category of sugary foods in general
"Sweets " is accepted now.
Yes, in Australia they are called "lollies" or "sweets". Just a cultural linguistic difference.
I agree – Lollies should be accepted.

No one that I know says, "tasty" - we say, yummy, delicious, good.
Isn't Candy a plural word also ? Can't we say "Their candy.." ?
Is it sweets or candies?
Both is possible. יהודה your club misses you!
In English, sweets. In American, candy.
Depends on which tongue. In English, sweets. In American, candy.
Both are right. They are synonyms. The only difference is sweets is used in British English and candies is used in American English.
Why is, "The candies of them are tasty" incorrect? I know I translated it literally, but it should still be correct.
I think it's just too odd English.
Is the word for candy and watermelon the same? ממתקים
No, watermelon is אבטיח.
I never heard candies. Everybody in the US says candy.
