Reality 36 Background
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.

Most levels of this episode look easy, but they are quite hard and take many tries. Any level can cause a challenge except for a few. Overall, this episode is harder than the previous episode, Ice Cream Caves.

Sour-Salon (old)

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 hard episode, while Sweet Beat is easy. In addition, it is also the first hard episode in the game.
    • This episode's title has alliteration, while Sweet Beat does not.
    • The pathway color 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.
