Are there any folklore about a woman or man that gives candy, and sweets to children?

Question by Breanna: Are there any folklore about a woman or man that gives candy, and sweets to children?
I know about La Befana, the Italian folklore of Santa but are there any others? It doesn’t have to be a European folklore. I’d take African, Indian, or whatever folklore that deals with a person giving children sweets like cookies, cakes, and ice cream and all that.
Okay I’m talking about FOLKLORE. Not fairy tales. No Grimm. No Hans Christian Anderson tales. No Hansel and Gretel. I’m talking about GOOD folklore where there is a creature or magical being that gives children candy and sweets out of the kindness of his or her’s heart. Like Santa Claus. Easter Bunny. The Stork. Cupid. Father Time. All folklore creatures that HELP people not torture them.
