A red striped candy

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 120 points. Detonating a striped candy gives 60 points per candy (+3,000 for candy bombs) destroyed directly in the process.

Striped candies can be dispensed from candy cannons, starting from level 2346.

Combinations with special candies

Striped candy can be mixed with other special candies to make bigger effects.

Striped red v Striped red v

Striped candy + striped 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.
Wrapped2 (trans) The striped candy becomes a 3x3 giant striped candy which clears 3 rows and then 3 columns in a cross shape.
Colour Bomb new

Effects of a striped candy + colour bomb combination. Watch the pattern carefully.

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 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 given interval.
Sugar drops of target colour are ignored.
On 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.
Jelly Fish Blue 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.
CoconutWheel The striped candy is activated. Then the wheel turns up to three candies into striped candies, and warps to the opposite side of board and turns up to another three candies into striped candies. Then, all of these striped candies go off.
