Designing site structure with Yahoo in mind

I'm starting a site from scratch that will have solid content related to a particular category, for the sake of anonominity
lets say it is about oranges.

I would like each sub category to do well for the subject it represents, i.e., orange candy (a sub category of orange foods)

I am specifically targeting the site to be Yahoo friendly. I was looking for some input on how to structure the site to do so, in other words, where in the url is a search string seen as the strongest by Yahoo. Assuming the .com ends in orange.

That in mind for the sake of example, what is the most powerful structure for the search string "orange candy"?

And this is a very important question in my decisions - would "example candy" lose some of it's punch if it was a subdirectory of foods rather than if it was on it's own? Keeping in mind that "example foods" will also be an important string too.

example.com/foods/candy/
example.com/foods/candy.html
example.com/candy/
example.com/candy.html

I realize Yahoo is big on content, please make the assumption that that particular critiria has been met and now it is a matter of where Yahoo favors the strings it is looking for to be in the url structure.

Thank you for any input, all opinions are much appreciated.

Are there other food categories that would be a level down from /foods/, other than candy?

the 2 string is completely SE friendly. But make sure that there is no other subcategory come after candy, if then you can use that string as example.com/foods/candy/lemon-heads.htm
