Spanish to English translations [Non-PRO]
Spanish term or phrase:caramelo duro relleno
caramelo duro relleno, no es masticable y tiene un relleno de jalea o dulce.
Explanation: Caramelo is 'sweet' in English and 'candy' in American.
Duro means 'hard' which would refer to a boiled sweet.
Relleno means 'filled' which signifies that is has a filling, in this case filled with sweet jelly, so we we would say it has a soft centre, in contrast to its hard exterior.
Explanation: Tengo muchos años como traductora, pero ésta información no la he sacado de ningún diccionario. Se lo he preguntado a mi esposo que es estadounidense.
Me respondió sin dudarlo: HARD CANDY WITH A SOFT CENTER.
Explanation: In England it's a "sweet", in the US "candy"
There are many different kind of sweets.
(Candy is made simply by dissolving sugar in water. The different heating levels determine the types of candy. Hot temperatures make hard candy, medium heat will make soft candy and cool temperatures make chewy candy)
Your candy is a hard candy, with a soft filling, since you indicate it comes with jelly.
I'd translate it this way: " hard candy with soft filling"
