The most important thing to know about this level are the locations of the Bears. On the first stage they’re located on the right side. On the second stage they’re located on the left side and on the third stage they’re located at the top of the playing field.
During the first two stages first break the Licorice Link as this will make it possible to match candies to Honey. Next you should mainly focus on matching candies near the locations of the Bears because as soon as you save the them the rest of the Honey will just disappear.
Since candies from the first and second stage don’t move on to the third stage I wouldn’t hold on to them. Just activate them and save the Bears on the first two stages as soon as you can.
During the third stage you should primarily focus on matching candies near the top of the playing field. While you’re doing this try to clear a row of Honey because this will connect the left and right side of the playing field and will increase the amount of chain reactions that happen. Chain reactions are a great way to clear Honey without having to spend moves.
There are some Striped candies trapped in Honey at the bottom of the playing field. If you’re not having any luck matching candies at the top of the playing field, try to focus on freeing and activating the Striped candies instead.
