The presence of four colours will cause fewer moves to be spent to create special candies. However, it is not that useful till some of the blockers have been cleared.
The order is worth 31,000 points. Hence, additional 44,000 points for two stars and additional 84,000 points for three stars have to be earned through matching of candies.
The starting available board space is limited and only has two quadrants, making it impossible to create a colour bomb.
There are plenty of three layer frosting which need to be cleared, reducing the number of moves available to create more powerful special candy combinations such as colour + wrapped candy combinations.
The liquorice swirls and the liquorice swirl dispenser compound the problem of clearing the blockers.
Once the top three layer frosting are cleared, it is easier to create special candies as there are only four candy colours and the increased board space makes it easier to clear the remaining frosting.
