A special candy is the name for a candy that will powerful effects once cleared and matched. Upon activation, its power will destroy more candies and yield a much greater score than a simple match of three. They can also be matched when just 2 special candies are side-by-side; the match will produce a very powerful effect much stronger than if they are activated separately.
Most special candies can be formed by making a match which is greater than a match of three, where others are only present through boosters or already being present on the board.
