Can one use candy to fulfill the mitzvah of Mishloach Manot?

I’ve always wondered if I can use candy in my Mishloach Manot. I’ve heard some say that Mishloach Manot should be real food and not just candy.

Mishloach Manot is the requirement for each person to give two food items to a friend on Purim day. Anything edible will do the trick.
