How is this not general

"Les enfants demandent des bonbons".  I used "du" as the bonbons are not counted.  Am I to use "des" because the bonbons CAN be counted, even though they are not in this sentence?

Bonbons are sweets and are plural, so you have to use des.

Dee M.A1Kwiziq community member

"du bonbons" is "of the," or de+le 

"des" is the plural form, because bonbons is plural, right?
