Five-layered Waffle

The waffle (also known as falling icing) is one of the blockers in the game. It unofficially appeared in level 476 and a few other levels due to a redesign for testing starting in the 33rd episode, now renamed Waffle Workshop.

It has now been officially introduced in the Waffle Ward episode with 5 layers being introduced in level 3501.

  • The waffle is very similar to multilayered icing (even having up to 5 layers), except it is mobile, like a multilayered liquorice swirl that doesn't block special candies.
  • Like candy bombs, waffles can get "eaten" by chocolate.
  • A candy frog landing on a waffle will remove it completely, regardless of the number of layers it has. However, if a waffle is destroyed by a candy frog landing directly on top of it, then it only counts as one waffle. This is particularly problematic in level 4127.
  • Cake Bomb explosions could blow away one layer of waffles.
    • Prior to the change, the explosions would blow away waffles regardless of the number of layers they have, leaving some levels with waffle orders unwinnable if waffles did not respawn.

Types of WafflesEdit

As the game progresses the waffles get a little more sophisticated. When a match is made next to a waffle, it changes in appearance representing the number of layers left. Here is a list of the types of the waffle blocker:

  • Originally, this was going to be Mini Icing that had exactly the same properties before becoming its own blocker. Also, there are a couple of differences between waffles and mini icing (i.e. chocolate can eat waffles but not icing).
  • This is the first movable multilayered blocker. It's also the first multilayered blocker which can be eaten by chocolate.
  • This is the third type of blocker which can have up to five layers, after icing and sugar chests.
  • Formerly (when waffles appeared for one day so they could be tested) the three-layered waffle had a light green cream on it. After waffles were brought back (when the official tutorial for waffles was available and waffle cannons were introduced) the cream is now yellow.
  • This is the first blocker to be dispensed from cannons since candy bombs. The waffle dispenser only became available once waffles were given a proper tutorial (on May 9th 2018).
  • This is the first blocker which has been introduced on an episode much earlier than the last episode of its time before its official introduction.
    • Furthermore, this blocker even changed the name of Cherry Chateau to Waffle Workshop.
    • However, only levels 476, 480, 494, 501, 505, 519, 526, 533, 540, 548, 558 and 560 had waffles until they were officially introduced.
  • Waffles are the first blocker to be required for candy orders in its debut episode and the first element since Sugar Keys to have the associated Candy Cannon introduced in the debut episode.
    • Just like icing, each layer of a waffle counts towards the order.
  • Formerly, waffles couldn't appear from lucky candies. This has changed in a recent update. Unlike icing (only Regular Icing can appear from lucky candies in levels with icing order), all five layers of waffles can appear from lucky candies in levels with waffle order.
  • Formerly, waffles couldn't be spawned by Magic Mixers at all. From April 2019, they could only be spawned by special magic mixers (due to them being able to spawn any blocker, and waffles were added to the list of blockers able to be spawned by the magic mixer). From June 2019, regular magic mixers could spawn waffles, starting from the redesigned Level 4755.
  • Waffles make up the numbers 079 to 083 in the tile map code.
    • One-layered waffle: 079
    • Two-layered waffle: 080
    • Three-layered waffle: 081
    • Four-layered waffle: 082
    • Five-layered waffle: 083
  • There is a blocker in Candy Crush Soda Saga called "pancake", which behaves the same as waffles in this game.
