From a Striped Candy by matching 4 candies in a row.
Striped candy is one of the main special candies in Candy Crush Saga. They are regular candies with horizontal or vertical white stripes on them. Depending on the direction of the stripes, they clear the whole row or column they are in when matched, if 4 candies are matched in a row, a vertically striped candy is created. If 4 candies are matched in a column, a horizontally striped candy is created. Another way of looking at it is that the striped candy will have stripes in the direction it was moved to make the 4 in a row. If one moves a horizontal striped candy up or down, the result would be affected. If one moves a vertical striped candy left or right, the result would also be affected.
Forming a striped candy gives at least 160 points (40 points per candy). Detonating a striped candy gives 500 points plus 40 points per candy (+500 for candy bombs) destroyed directly in the process.
Match 4 candies in a row and create a Striped Candy that can clear an entire row or column!
Combinations with special candies
Striped candy can be mixed with other special candies to make bigger effects.
Other special candy
By combining two striped candies, both are activated horizontally and vertically. The direction of the stripes does not influence the effect, so it is possible to make the same effect with two horizontal striped candies or two vertical striped candies.
While this effect does not seem powerful, a Bobber will recognize it as a combination, to give better outcomes.
The striped candy becomes a 3x3 giant striped candy that clears 3 rows and then 3 columns in a cross shape.
When mixed, every candy of the colour of the striped candy (except sugar drops and chested candies) becomes a striped candy with stripes in alternating directions. These are then detonated. For those candies below liquorice locks or marmalade, they will also be transformed and detonated.
On the web version
Existing striped candies of target colour are excluded from the alternating pattern, but will still detonate.
All striped candies in the combination cannot be interfered, and will always go off at a given interval.
Sugar drops of target colour are ignored.
On the mobile version
The combination will affect all possible candies of target colour and may change the stripe direction of existing striped candy.
All striped candies in the combination can be activated earlier than supposed timing (i.e. if the target colour is the majority, another colour bomb might activate them all at the same time).
Sugar drops of target colour are activated and will always be collected. Their locations do not affect the alternating pattern.
The jelly fish becomes a striped jelly fish and swims off of the screen. Then 3 striped jelly fish swim onto the screen and transform 3 regular candies in jellies into striped candies which are then activated.
The striped candy is activated. Then the wheel will make striped candies which will go off after the wheel disappears:
The wheel turns up to three candies into striped candies, and warps to the opposite side of the board and turns up to another three candies into striped candies.
The wheel turns up to six candies into striped candies.
Striped candies can have non-spawning colours, starting from level 3559. They can spawn from cannons with a colour that doesn't spawn naturally, starting from level 9477.
Striped candies have the tilemap codes 045 and 046 (horizontal and vertical, respectively).
Striped candy order is required to unlock order locks from level 7898.
Striped candies (both types) are one of the elements to be tied to the bonbon blitz. Horizontal striped candy bonbon blitz first appears in level 8766. Vertical striped candy bonbon blitz first appears in level 8768.
A red vertical striped candy is used for as the logo of the Candy Crush Saga Wiki Fandom website.
