So is 과자 interchangeable with cookies, snacks and crackers?

Basically: sweet things

Wait crackers like saltines ?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Staszek456

It's even used for cakes and ice cream, sometimes

Why isn't this "the cracker is not good" wouldnt crackers be 과자들이?

들 is usually only for counting people. A lot of the time multiples are implied.

"The cracker is not good" should also technically be correct though

I have always heard the word used to describe cookies as well. why is "cookies are not good" not right?

Mmm so the definition says crackers but when I put crackers its wrong? Ok duo

"crackers" is offensive. ;)

I answered "the snacks aren't delicious" is it count as wrong answer?? :'(

Snacks is correct, but "not good" should be in the answer. I've never heard 과자 translated strictly as crackers. All crackers are 과자 but not all 과자 are crackers.

I don't like snacks is also correct...?
