Despite the other characters referring to her as "inanimate," she is capable of moving on her own, such as ominously peeking around the corner in Eye Sea You and using the pool cue in Just One Kiss.
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, sleeveless 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 that appear to be Ring Pops. Her fingernails are made of candy corn, her shawl is made out of cotton candy, and her necklace is made of what appears to be a candy bracelet.
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 Eye Sea You, when Candy Wife supposedly caught Peppermint Larry staring at a Gingerbread Woman, resulting in Candy Wife becoming immensely upset. The ordeal sparked enthralling marital drama, according to Bubbie.
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 has been briefly drawn in 2D in the episodes Eye Sea You and Lookin' for Love in All the Wrong Barrels when she is seen peeking out from an open door and in a booth at the Candy Barrel, respectively.
- Even though she cannot speak, Larry is capable of understanding her clearly. However, both Flapjack and K'nuckles are seen interacting with her later on.
- Sometimes, items she interacts with are shown as animated CGI or realistic (E.G. a pool cue in Just One Kiss).
- Candy Wife may wear lipstick as her bare lips are shown to be a pale blue color on the occasions she's drawn in 2D.
