Lava Lake is the 340th episode of Candy Crush Saga and the fifth episode of World 68 (HTML5). This episode was released on 17 July 2019. The champion title for this episode is Cocoa Connoisseur.


Minty always makes a mess when he drinks the chocolatey lava lake. Tiffi uses straws to slurp up the chocolatey goodness. See, no mess!

New thingsEdit

  • Colour bomb + waffle cannon is introduced in level 5084.
    • Striped candy + colour bomb cannon and wrapped candy + colour bomb cannon used to be introduced, until a redesign removed those candy cannons.
  • Non-spawning chocolate order is required in mixed levels for the first time in level 5087. It's also the first level where lucky candies that yield chocolate appear in crystals.

  • This episode shares its second word with Lemonade Lake.
  • When this episode was first released on Windows 10, there was a glitch involving the banner, which caused it to display the episode's story instead of its name. This glitch is fixed as of version 1.156.
  • The episode's name has relation to food and/or drink, since the word "lava" seems to refer to a dish called "molten chocolate lava cake" (a type of chocolate cake with a chocolate sauce topping and a gooey chocolate center).
