A blocker is very common element and main obstacle. They prevent a player from accomplishing a level goal. They usually take up a square (except of cake bombs, which occupy four squares). Blockers threaten the combination of candies and can be very annoying. Blockers are the main obstacles of the board, so the player has to clear them. Nearly every level has at least one type of blocker. Sometimes blockers are useful because they can prevent chocolate from spreading and very necessary for some type of levels. There are many different types of blockers, each having different properties, so a player has to deal with each one differently. Some are easier to deal with, some harder. Blockers cannot be swapped with other candies, except of liquorice swirl and time bomb candies. Blockers are listed below:
