Regular icing (also known as icing or meringue or whipped cream) was a blocker in Candy Crush Saga. It was the first blocker encountered in the game, being introduced in the 3rd episode, Lemonade Lake, level 21, and was considered one of the easiest blockers to destroy, along with their current counterpart, one-layered frosting.
Icing is a stationary blocker that occupies only one space. It can be broken by making a match adjacent to it, or through any special candyeffects reaching the blocker. As with all other blockers, jelly might be underneath it. If a jelly is underneath an icing, the player is required to first clear the icing before reaching the jelly. 20 points are given when one icing is cleared. This is a very easy blocker to destroy compared to the other blockers in the game.
Because of the previous name, regular meringue, not being an official name, it was often known by other names such as frosting, whipped cream, puff, cream, icing (official name), ice cream, cupcake, etc.
Along with marmalade, it is arguably one of the easiest blockers to destroy in the game.
Formerly, one-layered frostings could be cleared by a colour bomb hitting the candy next to it, while regular icing cannot. This difference was removed in later versions, meaning that regular icing and one-layered frostings behave precisely the same way.
This may be why regular icing was removed.
The sound emitted when regular icing is destroyed sounds like a "puff", whereas the sound emitted when the multilayered frosting is destroyed sounds like when chocolate is destroyed.
Despite both types being icing, regular icing and the multilayered frosting have completely different textures.
After multilayered frosting was introduced, regular icing became less common (lots of levels have one-layered frostings instead of regular icing), before being eventually phased out altogether.
This is chronologically the first blocker to be introduced in the game.
Despite making its first appearance in level 21 of Reality, it made its first appearance in Dreamworld in level 1 (Web) (level 3 on mobile), before Dreamworld was removed.
Level 1123 was the 100th level to have regular icing.
One-layered icing spawned by magic mixers were always regular icing, not sachets. After regular icing was removed, magic mixers can spawn sachets instead.
This was the (unofficially) second blocker that the Sugar Chest can encase and the first immovable blocker. This is due to level 2474 being changed. This happens officially in level 2688 (for multilayered chests) and Level 2715 (for single-layered chests).
Level 2969 was the first level with locked regular icing.
Level 6951 was the last level with regular icing before it was removed.
Regular icing had the tilemap code 007.
