Gold Bars first introduced in Facebook

When first introduced on Facebook



Gold (also known as Gold Bars) is the premium currency in Candy Crush Saga.

It was introduced on September 19, 2013 with the release of the 33rd episode, Cherry Chateau. Gold was tested during spring and summer of 2013, before being added massively to many accounts, although not all accounts have gold bars.

On September 24, 2013, the game gave away 30 gold bars for free. In some events, you can earn gold bars from challenges. Gold bars can also be won as prizes, via the Sugar Drop Feature.

Gold can be used to buy boosters, lives, moves, and tickets to unlock episodes. Do not but Extra Lives under any circumstances.

Owing to the rarity of Gold Bars outside of real-money purchases, they should be used sparingly as almost all levels and episodes can be completed without the use of purchased tickets and boosters. Additionally, tickets can be obtained by either playing Mystery Quests or simply waiting, wherease boosters can be obtained through the Booster Wheel, Sugar Drops, or Events.

Note: Never, EVER buy Extra Lives under any circumstances. This is considered completely wasteful, as Lives itself has zero tactical value or worth, and they can easily be obtained through other methods.

These items can only be obtained by using Gold besides rare offers and getting them initially.

  • Extra Moves (5)
  • Bomb Cooler (5)
  • Sweet Teeth (facebook only)
  • Bubblegum Troll (facebook only)
  • Extra Time (both platforms, all varieties)
  • Moon Struck
  • Failure boosters
    • Restore Balance
    • Extra Time
    • Striped Candy
    • All higher levels of Extra Moves, Extra Time, and Bomb Cooler boosters


  • The player receives 50 gold bars at the end of Candy Town, before 2014 a players receives 10.
  • Unfortunately, there was no other possible way to obtain gold bars other than the first 50, Facebook, or via in-app purchase. If one was to obtain them free, they would have been hacking. However, now there are some ways to earn gold bars for free without hacking. The first way is completing challenge (collect red or green candies, see the gallery below), and the second is playing sugar drop mode. The third way is to synchronize the progress when downloading/starting the game first time on another platform (PC or mobile), which gives another 50 gold bars.
  • Occasionally, if a player buys something with gold, he/she may get infinite lives for two hours.
  • The Secondary Wheel has been removed so players cannot earn Gold Bars from that.
