Blocker

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:

Liquorice Lock

Any kind of candies or swirls can be captured by a liquorice locked and they can’t move until they get unlocked. The blocker looks like a locked door, with liquorice surrounding the outside of the square and an X-formation. Break it by matching candies adjacent to it. It is can also be braked by special candies or combination of special candies. First appeared in Level 2.

Cupcake

A cupcake occupies one square and is stuck until cleared. It can be broken by making candies adjacent to it, or through any special candy’s effects reaching the cupcakes. This procedure needs to be repeated as many times as there are more layers. Color bomb + color bomb combination can take off one layer of all cupcakes. Color bomb + coloring candy can strip all types of cupcakes.

Two Layered Cupcake

Two-layered cupcakes are single-tile stationary blockers that takes two tries to destroy. When degraded once, it becomes a one layered cupcake. These blockers will degrade by an adjacent match or an effect of a special candy that touches it. It requires 2 hits to break. It looks like a sponge cake in a white wrapper. First appeared in Level 8.

One Layered Cupcake

A cupcake occupies one square and is stuck until cleared. It can be broken by making candies adjacent to it, or through any special candy’s effects reaching the cupcakes. It requires 1 hit to break. It looks like a white wrapper in a near-circle shape that has been creased 13 times. First appeared in Level 10.

Three Layered Cupcake

Three-layered cupcakes are single-tile stationary blockers that takes two tries to destroy. When degraded once, it becomes a two layered cupcake and degraded once more, it becomes one layered cupcake. These blockers will degrade by an adjacent match or an effect of a special candy that touches it. It requires 3 hits to break. It looks like a sponge cake with pink mousse in a white wrapper. First appeared in Level 22.

Four Layered Cupcake

Four-layered cupcakes are single-tile stationary blockers that takes two tries to destroy. When degraded once, it becomes a three layered cupcake, degraded once more, it becomes two layered cupcake and degraded once more, it becomes one layered cupcake. These blockers will degrade by an adjacent match or an effect of a special candy that touches it. It requires 4 hits to break. It looks like a sponge cake with pink mousse and white cream in a white wrapper. First appeared in Level 28.

Five Layered Cupcake

Five-layered cupcakes are single-tile stationary blockers that takes two tries to destroy. When degraded once, it becomes a four layered cupcake, degraded once more, it becomes three layered cupcake, degraded once more, it becomes two layered cupcake and degraded once more, it becomes one layered cupcake. These blockers will degrade by an adjacent match or an effect of a special candy that touches it. It requires 5 hits to break. It looks like a cream mousse sponge cake with a cherry in a white wrapper. First appeared in Level 41.

Chocolate

It is one of the most hated blockers as it spreads every move if you do not “eat” it. It can also disrupt your moves. Chocolate can be eaten by breaking the candies adjacent to it, or through any special candy’s effects reaching the chocolate. It multiplies if not broken in a move.

Brown Chocolate

It requires 1 hit to eat. First appeared in Level 31.

Locked Brown Chocolate

The way to break locked brown chocolate is by first breaking through the liquorice lock with a special candy. When degraded once, it becomes a brown chocolate. It requires 2 hits to eat. First appeared in Level 45.

White Chocolate

It requires 1 hit to eat. First appeared in Level 121.

White Chocolate (C type)

When degraded once, it becomes a white chocolate. It requires 2 hits to eat. First appeared in Level 121.

Locked White Chocolate

The way to break locked chocolate is by first breaking through the liquorice lock with a special candy. When degraded once, it becomes a white chocolate. It requires 2 hit to eats. First appeared in Level 201.

Locked White Chocolate (C type)

The way to break locked chocolate is by first breaking through the liquorice lock with a special candy. When degraded once, it becomes a white chocolate (c type), degraded once more, it becomes white chocolate. It requires 3 hits to eat. First appeared in Level 135.

Honey

Honey occupies one square and can have one up to six layers. Honey can trap candies, bears, liquorice swirls, bubble gum, or it can just be empty. While contained in the honey, other elements are isolated from outside and cannot be matched, collected, or destroyed, until the square of honey has been destroyed.  Honey can be transparent or opaque, and its coloring varies with the number of layers. Honey can be removed by making matches adjacent to it, or through any special candy’s effects reaching the honey (different from cupcake and ice cubes). Each hit will remove one layer of honey. To be fully destroyed, multi-layered honey requires as many hits as there are layers. It can also be destroyed when a striped or wrapped candy hits an adjacent candy without directly hitting the honey. Chocolate and honey are the only blockers that can be destroyed in such a way. Color bomb + color bomb combination can take off one layer of honey. Color bomb + coloring candy can strip honey without honeycomb, and honeycomb will disappear if there is.

One Layered Honey

It can be broken by making candies adjacent to it, or through any special candy’s effects. It requires 1 hit to break. First appeared in Level 76.

Two Layered Honey

It can be broken by making candies adjacent to it, or through any special candy’s effects. When degraded once, it becomes one layered honey. It requires 2 hits to break. First appeared in Level 76.

Three Layered Honey

When degraded once, it becomes two layered honey and degraded once more, it becomes one layered honey. It requires 2 or 3 hits to break. First appeared in Level 95.

Four Layered Honey

When degraded once, it becomes a three layered honey, degraded once more, it becomes two layered honey and degraded once more, it becomes one layered honey. First appeared in Level 105.

Five Layered Honey

When degraded once, it becomes four layered honey, degraded once more, it becomes three layered honey, degraded once more, it becomes two layered honey and degraded once more, it becomes one layered honey. First appeared in Level 106.

Six Layered Honey

When degraded once, it becomes a five layered honey, degraded once more, it becomes four layered honey, degraded once more, it becomes three layered honey, degraded once more, it becomes two layered honey and degraded once more, it becomes one layered honey. First appeared in Level 106.

Liquorice Swirl

The blocker looks like a swirl of black liquorice and a dot of cream in the middle, taking up an entire square. It is one of the only blockers that can actually be clicked on and switched with candies, but not matched. It can be disposed of through breaking the candy next to it, or any special candy’s effects through it. They are resistant to special candies. If a striped candy, wrapped candy, or fish candy’s effect hits a liquorice swirl, it will get rid of the blocker but won’t get rid of any other candies or blockers beyond it. Color bomb + color bomb and color bomb + coloring candy combinations can clear all liquorice swirls at once regardless of its resistance. First appeared in Level 136.

Bubble Gum

Just like chocolate it spreads or strengthen every move if you do not chew it. When a regular candy, striped candy, fish candy, wrapped candy and coloring candy is locked it can be removed by regular matches. When a color bomb is locked, the lock can only be removed using special candy effects. When a liquorice swirl is locked, it can be removed by adjacent matches. Color bomb + coloring candy can clear all bubble gum on the board. First appeared in Level 166.

Candy Ice Cube

It is very similar to multilayered icing (even having up to 5 layers), except it is mobile, like a multilayered liquorice swirl that doesn’t block special candies. Like candy bombs, waffles can get “eaten” by chocolate. Cake bomb explosions can blow away waffles regardless of the number of layers they have. A candy frog landing on a waffle will remove it completely, regardless of the number of layers it has. A candy ice cube occupies one square and stays stationary until cleared. It can be broken by matching candies adjacent to it, or through any special candy’s effects reaching the ice cube. This procedure needs to be repeated until all layers are cleared. Color bomb + color bomb combination can take off one layer of ice cube. Unlike Honey, Color Bomb + coloring candy can strip all of the layers of the ice cube.    Like Honey, inside the ice cube can be candies, liquorice swirls or nothing. When they are trapped in ice cube, other elements are isolated from outside and lose their properties.   Like the comb honey you cannot see through the ice cube with more than two layers. Unlike Honey, candies destroyed by striped or wrapped candy do not affect adjacent ice cubes.

One Layered Ice Cube

It is a stationary blocker that occupies only one space. It can be broken by making candies adjacent to it, or through any special candy’s effects. Candies or blockers without multiple layers can be hidden inside. It requires 1 hit to break. First appeared in Level 226.

Two Layered Ice Cube

It is a stationary blocker that occupies only one space. It can be broken by making candies adjacent to it, or through any special candy’s effects. Candies or blockers without multiple layers can be hidden inside. It requires 2 hits to break. When degraded once, it becomes one layered ice cube. The two-layered ice cube looks like a semi-transparent cube with some mist in it. First appeared in Level 226.

Three Layered Ice Cube

It is a single-tile stationary blocker. The ways to destroy it is to make an adjacent match or  special candies effects. Ice can hide under the honey. Candies or Blockers without multiple layers can be hidden inside, but you cannot see through it. It requires 2 or 3 hits to break. When degraded once, it becomes two layered ice cube and degraded once more, it becomes one layered ice cube. The three-layered ice cube looks like a white cube as snow with many cracks. First appeared in Level 226.

Four Layered Ice Cube

It is a single-tile stationary blocker. The ways to destroy it is to make an adjacent match or  special candies effects. Ice can hide under the honey. Candies or Blockers without multiple layers can be hidden inside, but you cannot see through it. When degraded once, it becomes three layered ice cube, degraded once more, it becomes two layered ice cube and degraded once more, it becomes one layered ice cube. The four-layered ice cube looks like a white cube as snow with 3 cherries on it. First appeared in Level 266.

Five Layered Ice Cube

It is a single-tile stationary blocker. The ways to destroy it is to make an adjacent match or  special candies effects. Ice can hide under the honey. Candies or Blockers without multiple layers can be hidden inside, but you cannot see through it. When degraded once, it becomes four layered ice cube, degraded once more, it becomes three layered ice cube, degraded once more, it becomes two layered ice cube and degraded once more, it becomes one layered ice cube.  The five-layered ice cubes look like a silvery white cube with 3 swells. First appeared in Level 226.

Six Layered Ice Cube

It is a single-tile stationary blocker. The ways to destroy it is to make an adjacent match or special candies effects. Ice can hide under the honey. Candies or Blockers without multiple layers can be hidden inside, but you cannot see through it. When degraded once, it becomes a five layered ice cube, degraded once more, it becomes four layered ice cube, degraded once more, it becomes three layered ice cube, degraded once more, it becomes two layered ice cube and degraded once more, it becomes one layered ice cube. The six-layered ice cubes look like a silvery white cube with 3 swells and some colorful icing sugar on it. First appeared in Level 226.

Jelly Cake

It which occupies a 2 x 2 square on the board. The blocker can take 8 hits (by matching candies adjacent to any of the four spaces the cake occupies or by using special candies) to destroy. Each time a cake takes a hit one of the colored slices vanish (the colored slices vanish in clockwise order, starting from the top). The 8 colors of the slices (one color for each hit) are, (in clockwise order from the top), red, yellow, green, cyan, blue, pink, magenta and purple. When it is destroyed it explodes and hits all the blockers and candies on the board (this effect is like as color bomb + color bomb combination). If the board has special candies, they will be activated; color bomb and coloring will not have effect when activated. The jelly cake can be hit on any of the four squares which it occupies. First appeared in Level 271.

Peppermint Stick

It takes up two to nine squares in a straight line (horizontally and vertically) and can be destroyed by lighting up all stripes on it by matching candies next to it or by hitting it with special candies. When all stripes on the peppermint stick is lit up, it will explode, create the equivalent of a striped candy + striped candy combo for every square it occupied. It has two stripes for every square it occupies, i.e. a peppermint stick which occupies three spaces will have 6 stripes and will therefore need to be hit 6 times. When it explodes it will release a shock wave to all sides of it, including the top and bottom. Color bomb + coloring candy combo can light up all stripes on the peppermint stick at once. It blocks the effect of striped candies, much like liquorice swirls. First appeared in Level 1106.
