Before the ingredients fall, try to make special candies that will help you bring down them later. You shall also remove locked bombs.
Try to get the ingredients to fall on the right side and not in any stuck zones. If you can, try to get them fall in the fourth column, as you will be required to remove less liquorice in order to clear them.
Try not to clear any liquorice in the last column until you have less than 20 moves left. Twenty-move bombs spawn when you clear it and can be difficult to remove them.
Striped candy/wrapped candy combinations are your very helpful when trying to bring down ingredients.
If you get a vertical striped candy which is ready to drop the first ingredient, hold that until the second ingredient is going to appear, then make the second one appear at the same column in order to drop both together.
