Chocolate multiplying is only a nightmare in Candy Crush!
Chocolate is a blocker in Candy Crush Saga. It is the second main blocker and one of the most abundant blockers a player will come across whilst playing the game. It is among the most disliked blockers in the game as it grows back every move if you do not break it and its high abundance. It will also disrupt a player’s move in levels with chocolate, chocolate fountains, and/or magic mixers.
Chocolate can be broken by removing the candies adjacent to it, or through any special candy's effects reaching the blocker. Jelly is often hidden behind chocolates. Candies can enter a square once the chocolate is broken. Note that if a striped candy affects an empty tile, it can still break adjacent chocolate. When you break the chocolate, you earn 40 points - 20 points before the score system was adjusted in version 1.186, and only 1 point before Polkapalooza (Episode 28) was released. This only applies to the web version, though.
It should also be noted that chocolate can also be created from a chocolate fountain, first introduced in level 186. When the player makes a certain number of moves (usually 2 moves after all chocolate is off the board), the chocolate fountain will generate an individual piece of chocolate, therefore swallowing up a candy within its vicinity. If a level has more than one of these chocolate fountains, then the chocolate can be created from any of the spawners. This means that the player has no control over which spawner will generate the first piece of chocolate. While he/she can get rid of the chocolate, the chocolate fountains themselves cannot be destroyed. Therefore, getting a chocolate fountain from a mystery candy can make a level nearly impossible to win (if it comes over a jelly, it will make the level impossible to win, as they can only be destroyed if a jelly fish lands over the chocolate fountain(s)).

For the list of levels with this blocker, see here.
Locked Chocolate[edit | edit source]
Locked Chocolate is a variant of this blocker. It first appears in level 151. Locked chocolate looks like regular chocolate but is encased in a liquorice lock. This variant used to appear unofficially in level 52 before it was removed.
The properties of locked chocolate are quite different in that when a match is made next to the locked chocolate, neither the chocolate nor the liquorice lock breaks. Also, if a match is made that does not break chocolate, the locked chocolate does not multiply at all. In Candy Crush Soda Saga (which featured locked chocolate before the original CCS, the properties are slightly altered, with the lock acting like marmalade and chocolate can spread through the lock), the lock can be destroyed by matching candies near them.
The only way to break locked chocolate is by first breaking through the liquorice lock with a special candy, and then making a match next to the now plain chocolate. After the lock has been broken, the chocolate acts like regular chocolate, multiplying if not destroyed, and can be destroyed by making a match next to the blocker.
On the web version, this blocker acts differently compared to a candy in liquorice lock, when a jelly fish has landed upon it; The difference is that the candy in liquorice lock when landed by a jelly fish, the liquorice lock will be released, but the candy is still there, while locked chocolate when landed by a jelly fish, the liquorice lock, at the same time the plain chocolate itself, will break apart.
- The chocolate will immediately multiply at the end of the move of releasing the chocolate unless you break another piece at the same time. In the past mobile version, chocolate did not multiply if a locked piece was released, even if there were other plain chocolates on board.
Dark Chocolate[edit | edit source]
- Main article: Dark Chocolate
Dark chocolate is a new element that has been unofficially introduced in the redesigned 75th episode, now named Chocolate Chamber. However, due to a redesign after the episode's redesign, it is unofficially introduced in Caramel Keep for 1-layered and 3-layered and in Luscious Lagoon for 2-layered. It is officially introduced in Cacao Cliff.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The chocolate has the words 'Candy Crush' inscribed in it.
- This blocker is the main reason why the past version of level 70 was very hard and the past version of level 461 was extremely hard.
- Level 846 has 64 chocolates to start with; the most compared to any other level. This used to be followed by level 299 with had 57 chocolates along with 10 functional chocolate fountains and 8 useless chocolate fountains before a redesign.
- Level 2391 was also one of the levels with the most chocolate (41 chocolate pieces), until a redesign.
- Level 677 is unofficially the first appearance of chocolate in sugar chests. Like locked chocolate, chocolate in sugar chests cannot spread until the chest is unlocked. This combination is officially introduced in level 2862.
- Locked chocolate was initially one of the few items not introduced in Dreamworld until the redesign of Dreamworld level 52. It is subsequently removed from that level and reintroduced in level 420 after the toffee tornado is removed.
- Sometimes, the chocolate will eat special candies unforced, even when there are other spaces for the chocolate to expand.
- This is because the game chooses an adjacent candy for chocolate to eat at random.
- Coloured special candies (striped, wrapped) are the lowest in order of precedence.
- Candy bombs, however, are the most likely to be replaced by chocolate because they can be used on all candies save liquorice swirls.
- In the web version, the animation of the chocolate growth depends on its parent. Essentially, you can see the previous chocolate splitting into another one, unlike the mobile version.
- If chocolate multiplies over a sugar key, it will automatically be collected and a sugar chest loses one layer.
- The candy being replaced by chocolate disappears immediately, and instantaneously the tile becomes empty. The chocolate grows and covers this tile.
- It's only helpful in limited cases, one being when it engulfs a hard-to-reach candy bomb to defuse it. This can happen in levels such as 275 and 303, among others.
- In the real world, chocolates are a very popular well-loved gift especially for dating, yet in Candy Crush, it is a much-detested element.
- Its multiplication is described as a nightmare.
- When chocolate is expanding it looks like molten chocolate, the sound is like a "blub". When you remove it, it sounds like breaking real chocolate ("crack") and it seems, that chocolate has nuts; It falls in pieces over the board.
- It was used by the Bubblegum Troll to block the train tracks in Butterscotch Boulders. It was later used by Tiffi to do the same thing in Starlight Station.
- This and marmalade are the two blockers that trapped Mr. Toffee's feet in the CCS TV ad.
- This is the only blocker that appears in the achievement system in my profile (Chocolate Shocker, Chocolate Chopper, and Chocolate Chipster achievement).
- Despite locked chocolate being a variant of regular chocolate, it is still classed as its blocker. However, it has not yet been spawned by the magic mixer. It also could not appear from a mystery candy, even before their removal.
- Although locked chocolates must be destroyed with special candies, jelly fish can break it with one shot. This does not happen on mobile.
- Level 1337 is the first level which chocolate is very helpful, when it covers the thick frostings, due to being spawned by magic mixers. Said level is also the first level where the mixers spawn chocolate (as aforementioned).
- In Kooky Kingdom, the chocolate is absent in this episode for the first time.
- It also appears in Candy Crush Soda Saga in chocolate levels. However, the only difference is that there is a new variant of chocolate called the white chocolate, which has two layers and spread two squares and the sound for spreading chocolate is different.
- Level 2622 is the first level to require 100 chocolate squares as part of the order.
- In levels such as level 143, marmalade contains this blocker.
- Chocolate has the tilemap code 009. When a candy frog is in chocolate, it has a different tilemap code (053).
- Chocolate could be helpful in level 107.
- Chocolate has the order number "16".
