- Upon release, candy order levels returned after their absence in the previous episode, Savory Springs. However, this is no longer true because one level in said episode was redesigned to be a candy order level.
- This is the second episode in a row without moves levels.
- Before the nerfs and downgrades, this used to have a mean of 8.2 (including pre nerf 2521), making it the hardest episode in the game along with Popsicle Plateau.
- The extra time booster was removed, possibly because of the continuous absence of timed levels in later episodes (and their eventual removal from the game).
- This episode contains half of a Hell's cluster (2517-2532).
- This is one of the episodes to have the name of a fruit in its title.
- This is the first episode to have 6 color level (Level 2521) in a long time. The last episode to have a 6 color level is Radiant Resort. As of Aug 2019, this is the last episode to contain any 6 color level.
- This episode's pathway is shaped like Gummy Galaxy's, but is red instead of hot pink. This breaks the trend of a hot pink pathway every 9 episodes starting from Treacle Retreat. The new trend continues until the end of Flash version.

- This episode contains the 600th candy order level, which is level 2520.
