I dunno...the options "a beef candy" and "a tomato candy" make it really difficult to select the correct answer :)
The preposition "a" is fairly similar to "à" in French; e.g. "spaghetti al pomodoro", meaning more or less "spaghetti in tomato sauce". The word that follows "a" can refer to the main ingredient, the manner of preparing, some tradition etc. Compare: "mousse au chocolat" in French.
I spelt candy with 'ie' at the end and failed. Afterall candy is an american word I am english and dont speak american!
speakecc: Do you spell it "candie" in the UK? Or you don't use the word at all? What do call a little ball of sweet stuff like a lemon drop?
