Despite the other characters referring to her as "inanimate," she is capable of moving on her own, having the ability to make sodas at the Candy Barrel.
The Candy Wife has a large, multi-colored cotton candy head, along with two, flat swirly peppermints for eyes. Her hair and lips are fashioned from red licorice.
She wears a long, purple dress and carries around what appears to be a large lollipop. Additionally, she sports an expensive assortment of candy jewelry, such as a gold crown with rock candy embedded in its sides and rings. Her fingernails are made of candy corn, her shawl is made out of cotton candy, her necklace is made of what appears to be a candy bracelet, and her rings are made of ring pops.
Relationship with Peppermint Larry
The marriage of Peppermint Larry and Candy wife can be called turbulent at the best.
Candy Wife often mistreats Larry, pranking him with pickle juice, disapproving of his "hideous" fish haircut, and often showing signs of jealousy. An example being in Gingerbread Woman, when Candy Wife catches Peppermint Larry staring at a Gingerbread Woman,causing her to become immensely upset.
Relationship with Captain K'nuckles
Throughout the series, Captain K'nuckles is hinted - and eventually outright stated - to be infatuated with Candy Wife, though her reaction to this varies between annoyance and reciprocation.
In Candy Casanova, when K'nuckles intended to marry her, he was later shown with a black eye - implying that Candy Wife had socked him. In another episode, Low Tidings, Candy Wife's batch of holiday cookies included one of Captain K'nuckles being sacked by mermen.
Candy Wife and K'nuckles are revealed to get together every year during the annual Parfait Storm, and their intent is likely of the romantic variety, as implied by Captain K'nuckles' "hubba hubba hubba hubba haha."
- Candy Wife was once drawn as a cartoon in the episode, Eye Sea You, when she is seen peeking out from an open door.
- Even though she cannot speak, Larry is capable of understanding her clearly.
- Anything she touches like a pole becomes either CGI Animated or realistic.
