Activate the given striped candies to remove all chocolate. It is important to prevent from chocolate being spread. Do so using horizontal striped candies, a wrapped candy + striped candy combination, or if you are really lucky, a wrapped candy + wrapped candy combination on the right side of the board.
Work the left side of the board to start. You do not want a frozen board. Keeping some moves available on the right side will prevent having to waste moves for a reshuffle.
Create as many special candies, preferably on the right side of the board or near to the bottom of the left, as you can. If you can drop a special candy onto the right section from the bottom left, do so. Odds are it will be more useful on the right side, especially wrapped candies.
Colour bombs are vital to completing this level. Always look out for opportunities to make colour bombs. Mix these with a striped or wrapped candy and you will have most of the board cleared. By themselves, colour bombs can create matches on the right side of the board, which can give way to cascades and more special candies.
Use the matches on the right side of the board to your advantage. Sometimes a match on the right side of the board can help you place a candy on the left side to a position where it can make a special candy.
Be patient, wait till you get a lucky board. In Candy Crush Saga the outcome of an individual game depends largely on luck, what proportion of games a player wins depends finally on skill.
This used to be the only level in this episode to have six colours.
This is one of the few levels to make a cameo in a Candy Crush Saga television advertisement. The other levels are 33, 50, 97, 147, 181, 290, 350, 361, and 461. Most of these levels were rated hard or harder.
After nerf, this level is the first level to contain marmalade. However, it is an unofficial release.
The layout of this level is almost the same as level 353, but the right board of the level is copied to the left board of 353. On level 353, the chocolate is replaced by regular icing, and there are 3 rows of icing on the right board.
Another difference is the number of candy colours. This level has 6 colours, while level 353 has 5 colours.
