✅ A goody is something pleasing, generally a treat of some kind like candy or cake (We brought goodies back from the party).
✅ A tidbit is a small, delicate morsel of food (The table was covered with little tidbits for us to snack on).
✅ While both goody and a tidbit can refer to small pieces of enjoyable and special food, goody is usually used in the plural, goodies, and it generally suggests sweet food (I got lots of goodies for my nieces while I was away).
✅ Tidbit suggests something sweet or savory that is not necessarily a treat (I wasn’t very hungry, so I just had some tidbits for dinner).
