Please report it here if you found any glitches that related to Candies.

Mega Objective Glitch[]

This can happen in any level except moves levels. Once completed, the objectives will enlarge while being ticked. It is possible for that to happen when uncompleted but that is much rarer.


No result in Mystery Egg Glitch[]

This may happen in level 236. If you match this Mystery Egg into another candy, it cause no result and it work like matching normally instead. And Mystery Egg will nothing happen.

Colour Bomb Glitch[]

In any level, sometimes you switch a colour bomb to a candy, it will explode. But this glitch is not. If you see this glitch, you switch a colour bomb to a candy, it will not explode.

Black Timed Candy Glitch[]

IMG 1009

Sometimes in timed levels, the +5 on the extra time candies turn black. It seems to happen in the 7th column if it's 3 rows from the bottom.

Jelly Fish Glitch[]

  • There's a glitch in some jelly fish. When you make your move which will trigger the jelly fish, the jelly fish will carry out their actions and will end accordingly. If you wait for a minute, the game will give you no moves.
  • Another thing is that the jelly fish in level 285 did not eat the jelly behind the Icing (on Android and iOS), but this works properly now but a later update has changed the jelly fish mechanism wherein it no longer eat the jellies under blockers.

Suggested Move Glitch[]

Reality level 438 three candy glitch

Suggested Move Glitch (Mobile)

Faster game speed glitch (level 1347)

This candy glitch happens when your computer lags. Some random candies glow, instead of the candies which can be matched. (From the picture you can see the purple one glowing instead of the pre-matched candy (the blue one). Sometimes, three candies of different colours can be highlighted but no match can be made. Similarly,  when you have a shuffle and then a match immediately made after, there is a glitch where you have no more shuffles and there is the same case. This would make more sense than the other case, but still peculiar.

However, you can make this glitch appear if you use Firefox browser to play Candy Crush Saga. This also happens when you leave the computer to sleep and wake it after one hour due to rapid animation speed. The suggested move highlights several candies from last several moves from faster game speed, and can be fixed by quitting or completing the level and let the rapid animation speed slow down into normal.

Candy Frog does not appear glitch[]

Where is the candy frog?

The candy frog occasionally does not appear. It can make levels that rely on them Extremely hard or even Impossible. 

Colour Bomb Mixed with Colour Bomb Glitch[]


When matching a colour bomb with any other special candy, the game freezes and you need to reload it.

Colour Bomb Underneath Candy Glitch[]

Glitch-Color bomb

Animated Colour bomb underneath candy

In web version, there is a rare glitch when you mix a colour bomb with another, but one of them is left visible even after board wipe (although it has no effect). This may happen if there is a third colour bomb detonated in the process.

No Mystery Eggs but having a result of a Mystery Egg Glitch[]

There is a Glitch where in there are no Mystery Eggs in the board but giving a result of the mystery egg Evidence: Here Guide: (you must watch the video to understand this)

  • First Clip: when I match a yellow candy, it gives off 3-layered icing
  • Second Clip: when I combine a striped candy with a striped candy, it gives off a wrapped candy
  • Third Clip: when the combination moves on, a colour bomb is seen and it gives off a sachet
  • Fourth Clip: when the 4 yellow candies are matched, a striped candy is produced, but it gives another one under marmalade
  • Fifth Clip: Finishing Touch

Coconut Wheel Glitch[]

Glitch coconut wheel

The coconut wheels may freeze in mid-air during Sugar Crush. It always happens on level 253, and sometimes in higher ingredient levels.

If A Stripped Candy Hits As Mush keys needed to unlock the stripped candy it will actvate it and its still there

No Special Candy Formed By matching only Candy Bombs Glitch[]

No special candy using candy bombs only glitch

From Skillgaming's video. Left: A special candy is going to be made using four orange candy bombs. Right: I have made the match but where is the striped candy?

In level 334, a match of four or more using only candy bombs will only clear jelly and not create a special candy. This was fixed when Pudding Pagoda was released.

This glitch can also occur when a four-in-a-row involving locked candies is formed using a conveyor belt, failing to yield a striped candy (mobile).

Indestructible Candy Glitch[]


Candy Crush Saga Candy cannot be destroyed Glitch

(Indestructible regular candy)

Sometimes a glitch causes candies to be drawn where they should not, and are therefore indestructible.

Sources:The first video shows how the orange candy below the cherry just could not get destroyed by wrapped when it should be.

Empty Slots Glitch[]

  • Example 1: This glitch often happens in some levels, notably level 226, sometimes in level 199 and in some levels with liquorice cannons. This glitch happens when some candies cannot fill up the empty slots, usually below liquorice dispensers, but can do so after a move is made. This glitch is one of the reasons why level 325 was very hard before the update.
Glitch empty slots

Level 226, empty slot below the cannon

  • Example 2: Another variation is candies not sliding into the space below the candy frog resulting in an empty slot below a candy frog.
Glitch empty slot below frog

Level 7033, empty slot below the candy frog

Chameleon candies acting like striped candies or wrapped candies Glitch[]

In level 467, if the chameleon candies form a match of four, all the rainbow candies which are used in the formation become vertical striped candies. If the rainbow candies form a 'T', 'L' or a '+' shape, all the rainbow candies which are used in the formation become wrapped candies and instantly detonate, destroying the colour bombs around it.

Colour bombs combined with any other candy causes the game to freeze and requires reloading.

Special Candy Glitch[]

In level 236 on Facebook, sometimes a candy glitches. E.g.: A special candy is set off, then turn into another candy, then another. This keeps going on, making you restart the level. In addition to that, none of the other special candies are set off, even if they are caught in the path of the glitched candy. If there is a colour bomb in the glitched candy, it is not set off, even though it progresses to the next candy; it vanishes. However, this issue is not common.

Wrapped Candy Glitch[]

Occasionally on mobile, when a wrapped candy blasts for a second time, after it disappears, the slot where the wrapped candy was may sometimes keep blank for 1~2 seconds before above candies fall and take the place. This can affect the cascade outcome since it is calculated immediately on mobile. It can be also dangerous for timed level as it "pauses" the cascades but you cannot make any match. During that "pause" time, the timer still count down.

Candy Bomb Unknown Number Glitch[]

951 glitch

An unknown number on bomb meter, it seems to be a superposition of two numbers (here 5 and 6).

Candy Bomb No Countdown Glitch[]

Candy Bomb Countdown Glitch

No number on bomb meter. however, some players can imagine that it will detonate immediately but not, players still play normally. Of course, this does not happen often.

Special Candy Across Conveyors Glitch[]

Conveyor Belt Glitch

When trying to create a special candy across two conveyor belts (or two segments of the same conveyor), the result is as though a shorter match had been made. For instance, if five candies are matched, striped candy will form rather than a colour bomb. If one matches four candies in a row, they will be treated as an ordinary match, with no special candy resulting. This glitch has been reported in levels 914 and 1067.

Candy Cannon Glitch[]

Candy Cannon-Ingredient Glitch

This error often happens at Ingredient Dispenser. Ingredients can spawn very much at Ingredient Dispenser. This is a great error since it can help player to score very much. After level 1001 encounters this error, next levels are also same. Typically as level 1024 or level 1085, etc. It was unfortunately fixed at some point. This glitch was the reason why Level 376 was almost impossible on the web version.

Phantom Colour Bomb Glitch[]

On mobile, when mixing a striped candy with a colour bomb, the combination will work, and the striped candy disappears like normal. However, a "phantom" colour bomb appears where the original striped candy was. This colour bomb cannot be set off, and vanishes after a few seconds.

Candies Disappear Glitch[]

This always happens on web version. If there are many cascades or many explosions from wrapped candies in the column which does not spawn candies, they can be disappeared immediately if they slide too fast.

Look at Purple-0 on column 9, row 4.

Disappeard Candy Glitch

Candy landing over a Removed Tile Glitch[]

Level 1180 Reality Glitched

Level 1180

This happens mostly on PC version, when the candy cascading overflows. This glitch is very rare, and it happened on level 1180 pre-nerfed version, level 2048 and level 2444.

Invisible candy[]

Level 2186 glitch

Level 2186

This may happen on PC often. After ending cascades, one or some candies may be invisible immediately.

Ingredients get converted Glitch[]

Screenshot 2015-10-14-20-18-20

Where is the right ingredient?

This happens first in level 1247 where Jelly Fish appears in Ingredients levels. Since it is possible to have a jelly fish landing on an ingredient, it will do nothing when going alone. However, during a jelly fish combination, if it lands on an ingredient, the ingredient gets converted into special candy and be destroyed.

Mobile Ingredients Falling through Exits Glitch[]

This may be a mobile "feature" since it occurs on all levels where an ingredient exit does not have an empty tile below. In this case, if an ingredient falls through the exit, it will not be collected. Example levels include 1274 and 1309. This was fixed in v1.66.

Candy Colour Pattern Glitch[]

L 1780 M V1 Before
Screenshot 2016-06-22-21-42-33

This glitch occurs in the first mobile version of level 1780 when yellow candies are required but no yellow candies spawn. This glitch made that version of the level impossible.

No More Possible Switches Glitch[]

The game reports that no more switches are possible when there are. E.g. see the three purple candies on the screen shot. This was on level 1791 on the King site.

CC 1791 Bug

Off-Screen Sugar Candy Jar[]

On Android version, it's possible to cause the sugar candy jar to be outside the visible screen area. While playing a sugar candy level, simply turn the device through 90 degrees, then back again, sugar candies are still collected, but you can no longer see the jar and sugar candy count.

Infinity Lucky Candy Glitch[]

On mobile (or HTML5), there is a glitch on lucky candy spawning levels, there is a glitch where lucky candies keep spawning and keep producing special candies. It will do it forever or a long time and give you lots of points. It also happens when you bring in a lucky candy.

Cascade Lag Glitch[]

Occasionally on mobile/HTML5, a candy may freeze for approximately two seconds above an empty space before continuing, which previously triggered unwanted matches.

Sugar Key Doesn't Count as a Candy Order[]

Level 6143 red candy order glitch

This happened at Level 6143 after it was redesigned on August 8, 2020. When you match a striped candy that clears a red , it doesn't count and the level failed after you cleared one red sugar key. Since this level requires 11 red candies,there were 10 red candies and one red sugar key. It makes the glitched version impossible because a red sugar key cleared doesn't count as Red-0. It was fixed, with one less red candy two days later.

Candy Bomb Exploding on Unfinished Cascades[]

Candy bomb exploding unfinished cascades glitch

It sometimes happens when a candy bomb explodes even before the cascades will finish and before it is able to match to be cleared.

Level Failed due to Unfinished Cascades[]

Level 7359 level failed and unfinished cascades

Look at 3 Orange-0 and a single jelly on the bottom right on Level 7359

Sometimes on the last move you make a match, but then the candy next to the jelly or on top of ingredients weren't cleared, making the level failed even though three candies match on the jelly or on top of the ingredient weren't cleared.

Super Sugar Crush and Teleporters Glitch[]

This happened on HTML5 devices as of 2019. When you complete the level at the last move, the Super Sugar Crush begins and it doesn't earn points. Then candies fall on top of teleporters instead of going straight into teleporters. Once candies settle above teleporters, the level complete banner displays, and you earn little or no points on this super sugar crush. This primarily happens on levels with teleporters, like Level 1310. It sometimes happens, but not all the time.
