Start the level by clearing Icing and Marmalade as quickly as you can. With each one you clear it will become increasingly easier to make special candies.
Even though there are only candies of five colors on the playing field it’s still difficult to make special candies at times.
To earn points you have to focus on making Color Bomb candies. Activate Color Bomb candies on their own to give your score a boost. The more candies you clear with the Color Bomb candy the bigger the boost will be. Combining a Color Bomb candy with a Striped or Wrapped candy will barely make your score move. Only make this combination if your intention is to clear blockers.
A second combination you could focus on is the Wrapped + Striped candy combination. This combination will also give your score a nice boost.
Match candies near the bottom of the playing field (or as low as possible) as often as you can. Doing this will shift the largest amount of candies. This in turn will hopefully start a chain reaction that will create new opportunities to make special candies.
