All of the sugar chests must be opened in order to release the ingredients.
All the ingredient paths are blocked by popcorn squares, so the player must break all the popcorn to bring down ingredients.
The ingredient exits are on even-numbered columns (2nd, 4th, 6th, and 8th column) only. However, the conveyor belt automatically moves the ingredients to the exit. The player still has to avoid five stuck zones, however.
The popcorn blocks the effects of striped combinations on the bombs, on 5 of the 9 columns.
It is easy to make combinations with only four colours present which may be helpful to clear the popcorn.
The ingredients are worth 50,000 points. Hence, an additional 15,000 points is required to earn one star.
The two and three-star target scores for this level are the same as those in level 688.
This is one of the few level which has been changed from five colours to four during a nerf. Normally, colour reductions in Reality levels involve reducing the number of colours from six to five.
This level, along with Dreamworld level 87, had the biggest nerf ever, going from extremely hard to easy and many things were changed about the level: the number of colours was reduced from 5 to 4, many layers of frosting and liquorice locks were removed and bomb timers were increased.
This level is one of the first levels where candy bombs are completely harmless without using additional moves. There are 25 moves available but the bombs' timers are 40.
