Colour Bomb is a special candy in Candy Crush Saga. It is formed by matching five candies of the same colour in a row or column. When formed, it gives the player 200 points. 


A Colour Bomb is quite unlike other candies because it can be swapped with any candy on board not captured in a blocker. When swapped with a candy, all of that colour on the board will be detonated, and following an update they give lots of points when used. If it is destroyed it will pick a candy colour with most candies on the board.

This special candy is generally quite weak on its own considering how hard it is to make, but when mixed with other special candies, or when the board has only 4 colours, it can create some very big and useful effects.


Colour Bomb Striped Candy Turns every candy of that colour (including special candies and those below Liquorice Locks or Marmalade, but not including Sugar Drops) into a striped candy in a horizontal-vertical pattern from top left along the rows and then activates them all.

Note: This will not activate other special candies. On iOS and Android it does activate them. 

Colour Bomb Wrapped Candy Sets off the Wrapped Candy to clear every candy of the same colour on the board, then the Colour Bomb itself will clear the most abundant colour present on the board. In effect, this combination clears two colours, and usually scores massive amounts of points.
Colour Bomb Colour Bomb Sweeps every tile, clears every candy inside and takes out one layer of blockers.
Colour Bomb Candy Bomb Same effect as using a colour bomb with a normal candy, except it scores you much more points, and even more depending how many bombs of the same colour are on the board.
Colour Bomb Jelly Fish Creates three dotted fish that eat three candies as normal, and transform those candies into three more jelly fish. This has the potential to create twelve fish in total.
Colour Bomb Coconut Wheel The colour bomb activates. After, the coconut wheel will scroll in whatever direction was made and makes a full line of vertical/horizontal striped candies. Every candy (unless already a special one) scrolled past is turned into a striped candy. Then all scrolled candies are set off.

Appearances in game Edit

Colour Bomb firstly appears at the 14th episode, Caramel Cove where with it, Tiffi stops the volcano with it. Next appears in the 24th episode, Pearly White Plains where one of them destroys Tooth Fairy's teeth. It also appears in the 24th Dreamworld episode, Moonshot Molars where colour bomb is used as a baseball. It does make another appearance in the 47th episode, Choco Rio Grande where it appears at Mario's T-shirt. Its last appearance is at the 52nd episode, Chewy Citadel where Tiffi puts one of these to Franken-Stefan's head as a brain.


  • It is a chocolate ball with little coloured candies stuck to it.
  • Due to its appearance, some like to call it a "disco ball".
  • Level 202 starts with 19 colour bombs on the board - the most out of any level.
    • A similar level, level 400, starts with 14 colour bombs on the board.
  • The Colour Bomb is inspired by Australian candy which are called "chocolate freckles"
  • When a Colour Bomb is created, it makes a sound similar to that of the start of a level.
  • Many fans of the game have created their own Colour Bombs in real life.
  • Combining a Colour Bomb with a wrapped or regular candy (options that clear less of the board) scores significantly more points than with a striped candy or another colour bomb. The highest scoring method is using one of the first two combos to defuse a candy bomb.
  • Oftentimes, Candy Bomb has been mistakenly called for this. They are in fact opposites in terms of benefits towards this game. 
  • Colour Bomb + Striped Candy may be the best combo for clearing things, but for levels that worry about the target score only, like levels 47 and 433, it is the worst option. Moreover, on later levels where the one star target score is so high that clearing the objective will not give enough points such as levels 902 and 923, it should be used sparingly.
  • In Dreamworld levels it is not advisable to use them against one of the colours on the scale as it will tip over and you will fail the level. Combining it with striped candy would be better. It will not do this all the time, but it will most of the time, but it depends on how much. Watch the board carefully if one of the colours have too many candies, since setting the colour bomb off with something else has a high chance of clearing that colour.
  • It is impossible to create a colour bomb on quadrant levels. However, it's possible to be made when there are mystery candies in some levels.
    • As such, in level 467 (Reality and Dreamworld), if given colour bombs are all used up, the level will fail since it's a quadrant level.
  • In the beta versions, a colour bomb was just giving 1,000-2,000 points. Now it gives you more than 20,000 points. For example, if you mix a colour bomb with a red candy, and there are 12 red candies it will just give 720 points. Now it gives you 4,000-4,500 points for 12 red candies. However, level 297 was harder because of this.
  • Colour bomb will not animate in mobile versions.
    • On the other hand, it jiggles in web versions. Also, by making a colour bomb + wrapped candy combo, the flashing colour bomb will beat like a heart instead.
  • When the colour bomb + striped candy combination is used on the striped candy with the same colour of the candy inside the liquorice lock or marmalade, the combination will destroy the blocker over these candies before they are activated.
  • This is a very rare occurrence, but if a colour bomb is swapped with a striped candy, and that striped candy is the only candy of its colour on the board at the moment, the two candies will simply disappear and the rest of the board will fall normally- no whole rows or columns are cleared.
  • A colour bomb + colour bomb combo affects ingredients, it destroys icing surrounding it.
  • Colour bombs can be made by destroying popcorn, which is officially introduced in the 53rd episode, Eggnog Emporium.
  • The colour bomb appears in achievement system in my profile (Sweet Combust, Tasty Explosion, and Divine Detonation).
  • If two or more colour bombs get caught at the same time during cascade (mostly by wrapped candies), it is possible that some of them will target the same colour, reducing the total effect.
  • The application icon of mobile version (all platforms) has a colour bomb on it. The other candies are one red candy and one orange candy.
  • On new ending splash screen after release of Raspberry Races, there is a colour bomb on the green yo-yo which Tiffi is playing.
