I think this topic would be better suited for the Spanish section, you might get more answers that way. Sorry, I have no idea.

Yes mean candy or sweet..when you said ''ella es muy dulce'' means that she is so sweet and when you said ''adoro los dulces'' means that I adore the sweets.. I hope that I help you! :)

Dulce as an adjective is the general word for sweet. As a noun is used also in general for any sweet food, it might be candies, chocolates, etc. But there are other words for these: candy (USA), sweet (UK) = caramelo (hard) golosina (soft); chocolate = bombón.

Sweets in every other English variant but American English, in which it would then be candy. Just a difference of variants, means both. :)

Sí. Bueno, "candy": more like "caramelos". Pero, caramelos, chocolates, chupetines, ...Todos son dulces.
