  • Candy order levels were returned after their absence in the previous episode, Savory Springs.
  • This is the second episode in a row without moves levels.
  • This is the 10th episode in a row without timed levels.
  • Every level has 25 moves or less.
    • 12 levels have less than 20 moves!
  • This episode shares its second word with a Dreamworld episode, Whimsical Waves.
  • On a recent major update, several minutes before the release of this episode, Dreamworld version has been now removed on web. It was previously removed on mobile a while back.
  • Also, the extra time booster was removed, possibly because of the continuous absence of timed levels in later episodes.
  • This is the eighth episode to have the name of a fruit in its title.
  • This is the first episode to have several 6 color levels in a long time. The last episode to have a 6 color level is Blooming Backyard, but that episode only has 1, so the last episode to have several 6 color levels is Frosty Fields, with 2, which was 13 episodes ago.
  • This is one of three episodes with a mean difficulty of at least 8, the other ones were Haystack Hills and  Popsicle Plateau.
