The Candy Soldiers are a army of candy warriors created by Pain-Yatta, with the Light and Dark energies he absorbed. They appeared in the Light in the Dark comic story arc, where they begin to devastate parts of Skylands, and manage to deal heavy damage to Gearshift. Soon they begin to fight with a team of Skylanders which eventually ended when Pain-Yatta absorbed too much Light and Dark energy, causing the Candy Soldiers to crumble into the harmless pieces of candy they were animated from.
