Mieux vs meilleur

Correct answer in test: "Elle (referring to la maison) est mieux que l'autre. In the lesson the example is "Les bonbons sont meilleurs que.... Noun + Etre +..meilleur or mieux. I would have thought it would be meilleure. $

This relates to:
Meilleur, mieux, pire / plus mauvais, plus mal = better, best, worse and worst (irregular comparatives and superlatives) -

I just conferred with a native French speaker and learned the following:

Ma maison est mieux que la tienne.
Mes bonbons sont meilleurs que les tiens.

Two completely parallel grammatical constructions but different use of adverb vs. adjective. Maybe Aurélie can weigh in here.
