Level 281 is the sixth level in Candy Clouds and the 88th candy order level. To pass this level, you must collect 19 liquorice swirls and 19 frosting layers in 17 moves or fewer. When you complete the level, Sugar Crush is activated and will score you additional points.


  • All frosting squares must be cleared and can be hard to access due to their remote location.
  • The liquorice swirl dispensers are hard to free. Once freed, they will spawn liquorice swirls that can flood the lower board.
  • 17 moves may not be enough to collect the orders.
  • Colour bombs are provided to help the player. A single bomb cannot help, but the next colour bomb spawns on the next move, which, if positioned correctly, forms a double colour bomb combination which decimates the blockers and makes collecting the orders a breeze.

  • Instead of forcing yourself to create special candies to clear the blockers, let colour bombs spawn out of their cannons and position them well so that the blockers can be collected faster.


  • This level formerly consisted solely of an order for 300 green candies. [1]
    • Back then, this level was one of the best levels to collect a great amount of sugar drops, as it was easy to get lots of cascades once the board is opened up.
  • Two Dreamworld levels were based on this level, the latter being erroneous: its own Dreamworld counterpart and the infamous level 276.
  • This level spawned sugar drops before this element was removed.
