hi, that is certainly a good addition to the database.
however, in australia, ‘lollies’ (usually plural) is the broad term that basically describes the bite-sized pieces of non-baked confectionary, including boiled sweets/ hard candy, chewy lollies (jubes), liquorice, even chocolate, and also included are lollipops (which are the ones you mention specifically on sticks).
i think it is british english that uses the term ‘sweets’, american english is ‘candy’ and australian/ new zealand english is ‘lollies’. ‘sweets’ is another term for ‘dessert’ in australia, not the various types of candy.
