Candy Order levels (also known as Objective levels or just simply Order levels) is one of the seven level types in Candy Crush Saga. This level type's icon is pink with a white tick (checkmark). Candy Order levels first appear in Wafer Wharf, the tenth episode, with the first candy order level being level 126.
Candy Order levels are the third most common type of levels in Reality, currently making up 21% of the levels at 1538 non-mixed appearances out of the 7325 levels. Adding the 735 mixed appearances, there are 2273 appearances in total.
In Dreamworld, they made up 23.31% of the overall 665 levels, at 155 total appearances.
To pass candy order levels, the player has to collect a certain amount of candies, candy combinations or blockers within a certain number of moves. The remaining moves left will become striped candies on the board and they will be activated on Sugar Crush.
Collecting a candy really means clearing it in any way possible. An exception is when a candy is eaten by chocolate; they do not count. Destroying a wrapped candy of the target colour counts as two candies collected.
The lucky candy booster is a booster that can provide a random candy or blocker that is listed in the order for you when destroyed. This makes them almost useless on levels which require players to collect regular candies as the only order required or part of the order required, unless the required colour does not spawn naturally.
The scoring system is as follows: Every regular candy or blocker (except popcorn) collected gives 100 extra points, every special candy collected (without any combinations) gives 1,000 points, each special candy combination gives 5,000 points, and each popcorn gives 10,000 points.
You need to collect a number of specified candies by removing them from the board (switching them out). If you run out of moves before collecting all of the required candies, you will fail the level.
When you cursor on the order at the middle left of the game, an inscription will show up like the gallery below:
Candy Order levels are considered easier than jelly levels, but may be harder than ingredients levels on average. In the early 400s and mid-late 600s, however, they may be harder. However, after level 2000, quite a number of candy order levels often reach the difficulty of hard, sometimes even nearly impossible, like 2117, 2341, 2595, 2684, 2725, 2741, 2748, 2894, 2920, 2975, 3047, 3057, 3197, 3497 and 3533.
Usually orders that consists of gathering candies of some colour are easy (though there are notable exceptions such as levels 140 and 377). These generally tend to be common early on but later on, there are more complicated orders such as gathering, or even mixing together special candies. Cascading is one of the main strategies when it comes to collect coloured candies. Unlike jelly levels or ingredient levels, you do not have to aim a specific location on the board in order to destroy the right candies. Massive cascades are sometimes required to collect enough candies.
However, at the higher levels, special candy mixes become more common. Mixing 2 special candies can be a difficult task. Not only do players have to create the special candies, but they also have to position them adjacent to each other first. Therefore, this is a very luck based objective. However, some of the higher levels such as the ones in Gummy Gardens only require the collection of candies, special or not. Finally, some of these levels have one star target scores which are so high that fulfilling the order alone is not enough to pass the level.
Some candy order levels have a very tight space and/or have 6 colours, making the fulfilment of the order much harder.
Candy Order is the hardest level type in Dreamworld. The number of moves are often fewer than Reality and may also have larger order or more colours (always 5 at least), so most extremely hard levels are candy order. The moon scale is also responsible for the very high difficulty of Dreamworld Candy Order levels. Levels 289 and 341 are examples of levels that are much harder than their counterpart because of the 5th colour.
The moon scale also can ruin the day. For colour orders, if the order is the same colour as the moon scale this can cause Odus to fall and slow down your cascades. Special candy orders can also be hard battling the moon scale, as it can unintentionally set off a lot huge cascade. The same goes for candy mixes.
On levels with 5 colours the moon struck remove the left hand colour and levels with 6 colours the moon struck remove both colours on the scale. That means that the entire time the moon struck is active, those candies will not spawn and can therefore not be collected if part of the orders (in addition to the difficulty mentioned above). Some levels rely on mixes and the moon struck could mess up the position of the special candies and instead cause a huge cascade. It makes it easier but it can be frustrating if the cascades set off if you try to position the special candies together. However, special candy orders are a lot easier with a moon struck because a massive cascade can create lots of special candies.

|Special Candy||Detonate special candies.||Episode 10||Level 131||222||Somewhat Easy|
|Combo||Combine one type of special candy with another. If there is also a special candy order listing one of the candies required for the combo, it will also count. You can only complete a combo order once per move.||Episode 10||Level 130||97||Hard|

|Non-Spawning Blocker||A type of blocker order, but required blockers do not appear on the board, or spawn from candy cannons, chocolate spawners or magic mixers. These levels usually require lucky candies to complete, much like non-spawning color orders.||Episode 109||Level 1611||TBA||Hard|
|Uncreatable Combo||A type of combination order, but required combinations are impossible to fulfill under normal circumstances, due to the board being too small to create the required special candies and combine them. These levels usually require lucky candies to complete, much like non-spawning color orders.||Episode 141||Level 2103||4||Extremely Hard|
|Uncreatable Special Candy||A type of special candy order, but required special candies are impossible to create under normal circumstances, due to the board being too small to create them.

|Combine two color bombs for the perfect combination. All candies and blockers will be hit. Since this is the most difficult order, many levels containing them actually use other elements to assist the creation of this combo, including popcorn and fixed colors. Levels requiring unassisted combos of this type are much rarer.||Episode 15||Level 215||31||Extremely Hard|
|Clear layers of icing. Multilayered icing will count as multiple counts of that order depending on the number of layers it have.||Episode 98 (spawning)||Level 1447 (spawning)||139||Easy|
|Episode 138 (non-spawning)||Level 2048 (non-spawning)|

- Along with mixed levels, this is one of the only level types that not to be present at the time Candy Crush Saga was released.
- The first Candy Order level is not a dedicated tutorial on candy orders.
- In Wafer Wharf, there are ten of these levels in one episode, including the first 7 which are a formal introduction.
- About 1 in 5 levels are Candy order levels.
- Out of all the released Candy Orders to date:
- There are 208 levels with regular orders.
- There are 222 levels with special candy orders.
- There are 97 levels with combination orders.
- There are 81 of the 193 levels requiring non-spawning colors.
- There are 259 levels with blocker orders, most situated in the high levels (over 1447).
- It is surprising that blocker orders are now the most common orders.
- There are also a few levels with booster candy orders, such as jelly fish.
- Conversely, both Wafer Windmill and Cereal Sea are the episodes having the least candy order levels (after they were introduced), containing only one of such level. Many later episodes also tend to have only a single Candy Order levels.
- After the phasing out of 6-coloured levels, there are no more candy order levels that need spawning yellow candies.
- In the 400s candy order levels become much more frequent and harder; However, between Cherry Chateau and Glazed Grove there are no episodes that have more than 3 candy order levels.
- The 100th candy order level is level 441. This is also the first level of World Six and Butterscotch Boulders.
- The music on Facebook is the music for timed levels on iOS and Android, while in the mobile versions are the Moves levels.
- Levels 212, 312, 412, and 512 are all candy order levels. But this trend is broken by level 612 as it is a moves level, but 712 continues the trend only to be broken by 812 (ingredient level). 12 and 112 are not candy order levels because the first candy order is seen in level 126.
- Levels 289, 389, 489, 589, 689, 789, and 889 are candy order levels.
- There is once a controversy about the name of these levels - Objective levels or Candy Order levels.
- The largest number of orders up to date is 3000, in level 1000.
- Levels 245, 254, 425, and 452 are all infamous candy order levels due to difficulty.
- These levels all have the digits 2, 4, and 5 in some order.
- Levels 149, 438, and 1304 are the only three candy order levels which requires all three types of candy orders: candies of a colour, special candies and combinations.
- In rare occasions, even by completing the order, the level can still be failed due to not reaching the target score. Level 1217 and past versions of level 1304 are harder because of this.
- The final level of Dreamworld was a candy order level. The final level on Flash version is also a candy order level.
- No candy order levels appear in the 64th episode, the Minty Meadow scene. This is the first episode with no candy order levels since their introduction.
- Additionally, this level is the most extreme case where there is trend of a predominance of jelly levels followed by ingredients levels.
- The final scene of the story arc, the Soda Swamp scene, is an antithesis to this trend. It contains all five level types, and there are only six jelly levels and as many as five candy order levels.
- The 1,000th, 2,000th, and 3,000th levels are candy order levels.
- Each candy is worth 100 points, each special candy is worth 1,000 points and each combo is worth 5000 points. So this will help boost you score.
- Three of the first four new candy cannons (lucky candy, mystery candy and chameleon candy) all debut in candy order levels. Extra time candy cannons don't because they can only appear in timed levels.
- Candy order is one of the level types to not be converted from a timed level.
- Formerly, candy order levels were the only level type where levels could have non-spawning colours appear on the board, due to requiring them as part of the order (only lucky candies could yield them). This has recently changed with some new levels having non-spawning colour candies or elements with a non-spawning colour on the board.
- Future candy order levels that require non-spawning colours can already have them on the board, as opposed to needing lucky candies to spawn them, due to this new feature. The first level where this happens is level 3564.
