Level 972 is the seventh level in Soda Swamp and the 240th candy order level. To pass this level, you must collect 9 yellow candies in 27 moves or fewer. When you complete the level, Sugar Crush is activated and will score you additional points.


  • This level only has five colours, so yellow candies never spawn.
  • The player can leave up to 4 lucky candies on the board since there are 13, but the player requires 9 yellow candies.
  • The use of special candies is almost a must in collecting the yellow candies, as it is very unlikely the player will be able to match them with each other.
  • The orders are worth 1,200 points.[1] Hence, an additional 28,800 points is required to earn one star.

  • The colour bomb matched against one of the lucky candy colours can make significant game progress.
  • The colour bomb + striped candy combination is extremely useful in clearing frosting and collecting the order.
  • The colour bomb + wrapped candy combination is also very useful, especially when the wrapped candy matches of the lucky candy colours. Moreover, there is always the chance that the second random colour match produced by this combination might match one of the lucky candy colours.
  • Both striped + wrapped and wrapped + wrapped combinations help make considerable progress through their broad range of action.


  • This is the second level in a row in which the player must collect candies of a colour which does not spawn on the board.
  • Before the buff, this was the first level to have 43 moves.
  • The locked lucky candies have fixed colours; green on the left side and blue on the right side.
