  • Besides Wafer Wharf and Sundae Stables, this episode has the greatest number of candy order levels.
  • This is the 5th episode which takes place at night, preceded by Salty CanyonGingerbread Glade, Crunchy Castle, and Holiday Hut.
  • This is the only episode that has a 1-word name. It is a pun for Polka Lollapalooza. Lollapalooza is an annual music festival of which rock music is a featured genre.
  • This is one of the few episodes whose name is not based on a confection-related noun/adjective followed by a geographical noun.
    • However, Lollapalooza may be a reference to a lollipop.
  • This episode breaks many trends. First off, instead of the usual 3 or 4 ingredients levels, there are only 2. This is the fewest number of ingredient drop levels along with Salty Canyon, only behind Wafer Wharf with only 1 and Candy Town with 0. (Ingredients levels were not introduced yet.) Timed levels re-appear in this episode, after having been totally absent in Licorice Tower. There is also an unusual abundance of candy order levels in this episode.
  • This episode fits in with the trend of hard jelly levels as a finale. This trait is also seen in Holiday Hut's level 275, Candy Clouds (Episode 20)'s level 290, Jelly Jungle's level 305, Savory Shores's level 320, Pearly White Plains's level 350, and Pudding Pagoda's level 380.
  • The episode's pathway colour on the web version is orange.
  • With its release, the score board design and colour has been changed. Also, the score for breaking chocolate by a striped candy changed from 1 point to 20 points.
  • Its banner was now thickened.
  • Like Sweet Surprise and Caramel Cove, this episode has 9 levels with 6 colours. These are 396, 397, 398, 399, 400, 405, 406, 408, and 410. It is also behind Chocolate Mountains with 10.
  • This episode reaches the 400th level milestone. The other episodes to reach a hundred milestone thus far would be Salty Canyon, Caramel Cove, and Jelly Jungle.
  • This episode was released on June 17, 2013. Tasty Treasury was released on June 17, 2015, two years after.
  • The release date of this episode coincides with "World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought".
  • This episode contains the second Hell's Cluster in the game, though it's only composed of somewhat hard levels (399-402).
