Candy does not belong to mint and mint does not belong to candy

Depends on why you’re eating it. Mint helps with digestion and sugar is a great carriers for the substance so it can be consumed after meals and preserved for later.
The origin of candy is actually medicine believe it or not. Old pills were made of a medicinal extract of some kind mixed into hardened sugar. If you are eating a mint for a stomach ache or to finish off a meal, I’d say no, it’s not candy, but if you are pulling it out of a giant sock over your fireplace and eating it for it’s own sake, I’d say yes, it is candy.
