The Gumdrop (called Candy or Round Drop in some games or versions of the games) is one of the recurring items in the Mana series. It is the most basic healing item in the game, restoring a small amount of HP to a single character. It could be said to be the Mana series' equivalent of the Final Fantasy series' Potion.
