mkay. usually, candygoths are girls. may or may not wear black/dress in a gothic manner, but it is more than likely that they are very hyper, perky, and happy most of the time. they listen to what is labeled as gothic music, but they may also listen to a variety of other things. more than likely, classic rock, ska, punk, heavy metal, new age metal, or anything of the sort.
someone whom you may know that likes cradle of filth and the beatles but doesn't wear black/dresses in a gothic manner and acts happy but is sadistic at the same time is a candygoth.
