Tiffi gets out an electronic keyboard while disco lights swirl around the room. The organist becomes happy, and reveals funky clothing and dances to the music.

New things[]

This episode contains levels 516-530.

Sour Salon continues the newer trend of six ingredient drop levels per episode. The trend of seven jelly levels is broken in this episode, as there are only six. The trend of fewer candy order levels than in episodes prior to Meringue Moor continues here.

Sour Salon is a medium episode, with a mean of 3.6. It contains six somewhat hard levels: 516, 521, 524, 525, 526 and 529, and one hard level: 523. Overall, this episode is much harder than the previous episode, Ice Cream Caves.

Old name colour in the episode banner

  • This and its Dreamworld counterpart, Sweet Beat, are essentially polar opposites due to many reasons:
    • This is the first episode that was released in 2014 on Flash, while Sweet Beat was the last to be released that year.
    • This episode's first word, Sour is an antonym to that of Sweet Beat, with Sweet.
    • This is a medium episode, while Sweet Beat is easy.
    • This episode's title has alliteration, while Sweet Beat does not.
    • The pathway colour for this is red, while Sweet Beat has a green pathway.
  • This is the 4th consecutive episode which does not have any timed levels prior to their removal.
  • This is the last episode without anything new being introduced. The next episode introduces a new element.
  • This is the second episode where the episode colour is red. The first was Holiday Hut.
  • This is the first episode to have 5 colours on the board in every single level. The second one is Caramel Clearing.
    • This is also the first episode to not have any six-colour levels, even before their removal. That means this is the first episode the yellow candies are totally absent.

Royal Albert Hall, London

  • This episode is a reference to the Phantom of the Opera.
  • This is the second episode that is based off on in England. In this case, it's the Royal Albert Hall on London. The first being Licorice Tower.
  • This is also the 3rd consecutive episode that ends with a 5-coloured level, 530.
  • Like Pearly White Plains, all jelly levels are even-numbered.
  • This episode didn't have any 50-move levels for a long time. Recently, 530 was nerfed to have 60 moves.
