Level 525 is the tenth level in Sour Salon and the 132nd ingredients level. To pass this level, you must collect 3 hazelnuts and 2 cherries in 30 moves or fewer. When you complete the level, Sugar Crush is activated and will score you additional points.


  • All columns spawn candies at the top. In other words, the ingredients cannot slide into another column from above an frosting, because candies spawn there.
  • The initial position of the bombs is very inconvenient. Also, bombs rain frequently and have only 12 moves.
  • The ingredients are worth 50,000 points.[1] Hence, an additional 10,000 points are required to earn one star.

  • Break the frosting and then try to defuse the bombs. Afterwards, bring the ingredients down while keeping an eye on the other bombs pouring down.
  • Alternatively, make vertical striped candies on the 2nd, 4th, 6th and 8th columns to hit them. If the bombs have mostly the same colour, colour bombs may work as well.
  • The ingredients can not and will not slip out. The vertical matches in the 3rd, 5th, or 7th column do not usually make the ingredient/candy bomb slip out, but it may work if you are lucky.

Earning More StarsEdit


  • The presence of five colours makes it easy to create special candies.
  • The ingredients are worth 50,000 points. Hence, an additional 70,000 points for two stars and an additional 100,000 points for three stars have to be earned through matching of candies.
  • The player is required to earn an additional 2,340 points per move[2] for two stars and an additional 3,340 points per move[3] for three stars.
  • Despite the presence of three-layered frosting, they are not too hard to destroy with five colours.
  • There are candy bombs already on the board and they indefinitely spawn, giving players many opportunities to create colour bomb + candy bomb combinations.
  • 30 moves are limited in earning a huge amount of points due to sugar crush and the limiting of the number of special candies created via regular matches. However, this point is less critical due to the mass of candy bombs.


  • This level spawned sugar drops before this element was removed.
