After level 550 we’re once again dealing with a “Hard” level. Or, in other words; you need a crapload of luck with special candies, special candy combinations and chain reactions.
You can pretty much ignore the Jam throughout the level because chain reactions and special candies will spread it for you once you reveal the Jam. What you should be focusing on instead is simultaneously breaking the Licorice Links and clearing the Honey.
To break the Licorice Links just match candies adjacent to it when given the chance. Breaking them will allow more candies on the playing field and increase the space in which you can make special candies, making it easier to make them.
To clear the Honey you not only need to make special candies. You will have to combine them quite often because the Honey at the bottom of the playing field is six-layered and through the majority of the level it can only be hit with special candies.
Before the Jam is spread across the playing field consider combining Jelly Fishes with horizontal Striped candies because at this stage the Jelly Fish will dive on Honey (rather than spread the Jam), removing a layer of Honey from an entire row. Once the Jam is spread this combination will become more difficult to make.
