Start the level by clearing tiles of Honey one by one instead of hitting Honey all over the place. With each tile of Honey you clear it will become increasingly easier to make special candies.
With candies of five colors on the playing field you shouldn’t have too many problems making special candies. Still, take your time and don’t miss out on opportunities to make special candies. Consider holding on to special candies until you can combine them because of the combination’s enhanced effect.
As you clear more and more Honey match candies near the top of the playing field (or as high 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.
While matching candies at the top don’t ignore making special candies at the bottom of the playing field. Pause after every move and glance at the entire playing field to see whether you can make special candies.
As for the Honey on the top row, most of the time you will be able to clear it by activating the horizontal Striped candies in the top left and right corners. Keep this in mind and make moves accordingly.
