Booster lollipop hammer

Lollipop Hammer, also known as Lollipop, is a booster in Candy Crush Saga that is unlocked in level 7. It is activated in-game by clicking the corresponding button in the top right (left on HTML5) corner of the screen.


It is a booster that the player can use to remove a single candy, a jelly below a candy, or a blocker without using a move. You can smash once into any spaces (with or without candy) or most blockers. For example, if you hit a multilayered icing, it will remove one layer. Smashing a candy which is not covered by jelly is worth 20 points. You cannot smash a square without blockers or a candy on it (even if there is jelly, web version only), and you cannot smash a chocolate spawner, toffee tornado, ingredient, sugar chest, candy cane fence or candy cane curl. When it is used to break a lucky candy or mystery candy, the content will be revealed. When it is used to break a special candy, the candy will be activated.

You earn 20 points for smashing a candy (this includes candy bombs) unless there is a jelly underneath.
