An one-layered frosting, locked candy, chocolate, and liquorice swirl, the first former 4 blockers in the game.

Blockers are the most common form of secondary element in Candy Crush Saga designed to obstruct matches and create obstacles. These objects can take on one or more of the following functions:

Typically, blockers take up a square (except cake bombs, which occupy four, and curls/fences which go between squares). Blockers threaten the combination of candies and can often be very annoying. There are various blockers throughout the game. Every blocker has unique properties, such as chocolate being able to multiply if not broken in one move, and liquorice swirls being resistant to specials. Some blockers are harder to remove than others, immune to most effects, or even permanent throughout the level.

Blockers are the main obstacles of the board, so it is advisable to clear them as quickly as possible in most levels. Players may also have to collect blockers as part of the order for candy order levels. Nearly every level has at least one type of blocker. Levels can have up to five to ten different types of blockers, or even more.

Despite some blockers being a nuisance, some are useful. For example:

  • Liquorice swirls, marmalade, and frosting prevent chocolate or dark chocolate from spreading or strategically disadvantageous special candies going off.
  • Chocolate can engulf a candy bomb, while magic mixers can help fulfill orders while also replacing candy bombs or other blockers..
  • Liquorice Shells can be converted into Color Bombs which can assist in forming consecutive Color Bomb+Color Bomb combos or other Color Bomb + Special Candy bombos.
  • Magic mixers and bubblegum pops explode after clearing.
  • Bobbers spawn jelly fish when hit.

List of blockers[]


  • Strikethrough blockers indicate removed blockers (they used to exist in the game, but now got removed).
  • Bold blockers indicate HTML5-exclusive blockers.

Licorice fence.png Liquorice Fence Episode 508
Level 7596
Permanent throughout the level.

Upgraded variant of candy cane fences, which absorbs special candy effects. Therefore, if there's a blocker inside that space, the only ways to destroy that blocker without boosters are CB+CB combination, landing candy frog in that space (only applies when there's another grid for candy frog to enter), and cake bomb explosion. Otherwise, boosters are inevitable. It even blocks the effect of wrapped candy effects and bubblegum pop explosion. So, five-layered frosting, bubblegum pop, and liquorice shell may become much stronger if they're inside that space. It's red and black, instead of red and white (the colours of the original candy cane fence).

Nearly infinite

Beneficial when blocking chocolate and the specific layout.

Toffee-Tornado.png Toffee Tornado

Episode 29

Level 411

Randomly moved around every two turns (one before its third nerf), destroying candies (and sometimes blockers), and blocking the tiles with cracks. Can make an entire level luck-based and unpredictable, and often greatly increases its difficulty.

Note: This blocker has been nerfed three times before finally being eliminated from the entire game.

Nearly infinite or Extremely high depending on incarnation.




  • The most infamous blockers of Candy Crush Saga are: chocolate fountains (both types), candy bombs, five-layered frosting, five-layered sugar chests, liquorice shell, magic mixer (formerly known as evil spawner), and liquorice fences because of their properties and the difficulty (or, in some cases, impossibility) of destroying them.
  • Colour bomb + colour bomb combination can strip a layer from or remove all of the blockers, except chocolate fountains, sugar chests, bobbers, and candy cane fences.
  • On HTML5, there used to be a glitch, so bobbers unofficially appeared in levels 426-434. The glitch has been fixed.
  • Blockers can sometimes be beneficial in certain cases.
    • Magic mixers can help you collect the blockers to complete the order, and you have to completely rely on them in certain cases. It can also give you a 5x5 blast, which can help in completing the objective.
    • Bobbers give you jelly fish when hit.
    • Bubblegum pop gives you a 3x3 blast, which can also help in completing the objective.
    • Liquorice shell gives you colour bombs when popped three times.
    • When a coconut wheel is set off, and there is a blocker in front of a colour bomb, or another coconut wheel, it will prevent the active wheel from setting off those blocked special candies.
    • Bonbon blitz creates the effect of the special candy shown on it.
    • They can also prevent the impact of detrimental blockers.
    • Immobile blockers are also helpful when blocking out a candy bomb/liquorice dispenser, or preventing chocolate from passing through.
  • Since Lemonade Lake, blockers are required. Some levels rely entirely on magic mixers to complete.
  • Level 275 currently has an useless candy bomb dispenser. That is because it is covered up by a chocolate fountain.
  • As of level 5098, certain immobile blockers can be moved by the conveyor belt. If proven, they are known as semi-immovable blockers. However, even though they can be moved, they still retain their old behaviour.
  • No new blockers were introduced in 2016. Ironically, this was the same year when blocker orders were introduced.
  • The blockers that didn't appeared in moves levels prior to their removal are toffee tornado, liquorice curl, liquorice fence, order lock, sour skull, bonbon blitz, dark chocolate fountain and jelly jars. Toffee tornadoes were present in only a few levels before their removal, while liquorice curls, liquorice fences, order locks, sour skulls, bonbon blitz, and dark chocolate fountains were introduced after moves levels were phased out and jelly jars only appear in levels where jelly is required.
  • Since 2017, a new blocker is always introduced in the early part of the year (no later than April).
