Because the goal of the level is to save the Bears you should use your vertical Striped candies in the same columns as the Honey. If you create a horizontal Striped candy, try to combine it with a Jelly Fish so that they’re still of some use. It’s the first and last columns that are especially difficult to clear, so pay attention to those and when you have the opportunity use vertical Striped candies in those columns.
Since candies move from the top to the bottom of the playing field, match candies as low on the playing field as possible as often as you can. Doing this will shift the largest amount of candies, hopefully matching some automatically and create new opportunities to create special candies.
While your attention is at the bottom it’s easy to forget about creating special candies at the top of the playing field, so pause after every move and glance at the entire playing field to see whether you can create special candies.
