    In Swedish candy is pronounced “Godis”.
    “Godis” is technically a word for something that has a good and positive taste or attribute.

    As you thrive in your project for giving candy a place in the modern gastronomy or food society, should not the definition of “Candy” be given a new and modern attention?
