It can be hard to demolish the initial candy bombs because they are surrounded by liquorice swirls, rendering striped candies ineffective, especially when they only need seven moves to explode. Also, more bombs drop down every five moves.
The only issue is candy bombs, which are surrounded by some liquorice swirls. Demolish them as quickly as possible, preferably using wrapped candies. Remember, liquorice swirls can be swapped around, so if you can move the candy bomb between the two same-coloured candies beside them, do it! After that, start freeing some liquorice locks to free up some spaces below the them, so that you can produce special candies more easily.
