  • In HTML5, the silhouettes of Chocolate Barn and Minty Meadow can be seen in the background.
    • However, this is no longer the case, as its background resembles Haystack Hills, an episode 151 episodes later.
  • This episode had the same pattern of timed levels as Lemonade Lake's (level 27 and level 32 compared with level 177 and level 182), prior to their removal.
  • Levels 181, 183 and 184 were difficult before they got nerfed. Hence, this episode used to have a Hell's Cluster from levels 180-184.
  • This was formerly the hardest episode in the game. Most of it was due to the four-layered frosting. It also contained two extremely hard levels, the aforementioned 181 and 184.
