Yes, in conservative RP 'candid" and "candied" were reported as  the same by
someone in authority, I'm trying to remember who--Daniel Jones?  I remember as
an undergraduate being confused by Claude Wise (who I believe was from
Louisiana) who stated in one of his books that the two vowels of "city" were the
same (capital eye).
