Candy is the main item in Candy Crush Saga. Candies come in six colors; match at least three of them with the same color in a line to clear them for points. There are special candies, which are created by forming special configurations, and other special candies that appear on later levels but cannot be created. Each one has its own effect.

Clearing candies in certain positions will also clear blockers, so you can open up the board and make gameplay easier.

Regular candiesEdit

These make up most of the game. Get at least 3 candies of the same color in a row to clear them and turn them into points.

The six different colours and shapes are:

Yellow-0
Yellow Teardrop

Blue Planet
Purple-0

Special candiesEdit

Special Candy Image Info
Striped Candy
Red striped candy HQ

A vertically striped sausage

  • Appearance: Horizontal or vertical white stripes on a regular candy.
  • Effect: Clears an entire row or column, depending on the direction of the stripes.
  • Formation: Exactly 4 regular candies in a row. The most common special candy, often created accidentally (not meant to be) through cascades. This is the easiest Special Candy to make.
    • If the striped candy results from a horizontal move, the stripes will be horizontal, if it results from a vertical move, they will be vertical, and the result is random during larger cascades.
    • If created directly through a match, the striped candy will appear at the location of the candy you switched and matched, and will have the same direction as the direction of the switch. If striped candies are formed in subsequent cascades, they will replace any one of the matched candies that forms the special candy.
  • Vertical striped candies may be useful in ingredient levels if they are in the same column as an ingredient.
Wrapped Candy
Wrapped candy

A Red Wrapped Candy

  • Appearance: A regular candy in a same-coloured square wrapper.
  • Effect: Clears the surrounding 8 candies, activates twice.
  • Formation: 5 or 6 regular candies in a T, L, or + shape (or in some cases, any intersecting matches with none being a match of five or more). Only comes out if the formation cannot create a Colour Bomb.
    • If created directly through a match, the wrapped candy will replace the matched candy you switched. If created through cascades, the wrapped candy will replace any one of the candies being cleared to form the special candy.
Colour Bomb
Colourbomb

A Colour Bomb

  • Appearance: A chocolate ball with sprinkles on it. Known as "freckles".
  • Effect:
    • When switched with a regular candy, it will clear all candies of that colour from the board.
    • When switched with a striped candy it will turn all candies of that colour into striped candies and immediately clear each line according to the striped candy's direction.
    • When switched with a wrapped candy, it will remove all candies of that colour from the board. Once the board settles, it will then remove all candies of another colour from the board.
    • When switched with another colour bomb, it will clear all candy on the board.
    • When blown up by a special candy or falling candies, it will remove all candies of one colour.
  • Formation: 5 or more in a row. This will always come out even if a single formation meets condition of other special candies.
    • If created through a match directly, the Color Bomb will appear at the spot of the switched candy being matched. This means only the central candy of the five cleared candies will be replaced with a Color Bomb. If created during cascades, it will replace any one of the candies being cleared to form the special candy.
Jelly Fish

  • Green and blue candies are the only candies to never be left out of a level.
    • Green candies are the only candies to have never been left out in all of Candy Crush history.
    • Red candies used to appear in every level in iOS and Android. The same went for Yellow candies, except that they did not appear in 3-colour levels like level 31, a 5-colour level like Level 146, and a 4-colour level like Level 289.
  • All 5 colour levels exclude yellow candies. The old mobile version usually excluded purple candies instead.
  • All 4 colour levels exclude yellow and red candies. The old mobile version usually excluded purple and orange candies instead.
    • One exception is old mobile 615, whose colour pattern was red, green, blue and purple.
  • Only a few levels have less than 4 candy colours. Level 2424 is the first level with just two colors, the minimum possible (except for a few promotional levels)
  • In Glazed Grove, Tiffi feeds Freddie up with some red candies.
  • A blue candy appears in Marmalade Meadow and is responsible for clogging Boomer's harvesting equipment.
  • The face of the sunflower in the after story of the 56th episode, Candy Calaboose is replaced by a purple candy. (After character of this episode has been changed to Benny instead of Mr. Raccoon)
