My professor told me a few weeks ago that the word 'candy' is an uncountable noun. I've always thought candy could be counted, as in one candy, two candies, three candies and so on.
Now that I know I can't pluralize it, how do I count candy? I know with mass nouns you use partitives like piece, slice, loaf, pint, cup, and so on. Do you use 'piece' for candy? I've never heard anyone say 'two pieces of candy'.
The display of candies (or: candy) in the shop was tempting.
The kids brought their Halloween candy to school.

I hope this is helpful,
