In Candy Crush Saga, there are blockers or obstacles that will prevent you from clearing candies and forming combinations. Some blockers can be cleared, others can’t and some can be cleared in multiple moves. In later levels, you’ll even find some blockers can regenerate!
Keep reading for a full list of every blocker in Candy Crush!
Candy Crush Saga Blockers
In early levels, chocolates are blockers that can multiply. Certain boards will begin with a set number of chocolates but for every move that does not clear a chocolate, a new one will spawn. Until level 156, you can stop chocolates from multiplying by clearing every chocolate off the board.

Chocolate Fountains don’t appear until level 156 but when they do, watch out! These machines will regenerate chocolate, even if you’ve cleared the whole board of chocolate blockers.

Bombs are colored just like normal Candy Crush Saga candies and can only be cleared through a 3-candy combo or by a special candy. The number inside the bomb indicates how many moves you are given to clear the bomb. If you don’t clear the bomb in the set number of moves, the game is over and you lose a life.

Licorice Swirls (or blocks) take up spaces on your board where there could be candies. These can be cleared by making a move adjacent to the licorice swirl.
Also known as Locked Candies, a licorice X will prevent you from moving the candy inside. In order to clear the licorice you need to use a special candy or to make a candy combination with the same colors WITHIN the locked candy.
A meringue is often mistaken for whipped cream or frosting. This white, fluffy blocker is like the licorice in how it can be cleared–just make a move adjacent to it or have a special candy make a combination that will affect the meringue.
The original, fluffy meringue (or whipped cream or frosted candy), only needs one move to be cleared from your board. As the levels increase in Candy Crush, it gets more difficult to clear the meringues because they gain layers.
Like Licorice X’s (or locked candies), candies can be contained within the marmalade. You can free the candy by making a combination with the candy within the marmalade or if you make a combination next to the enclosed candy or if you make a special candy combination.

Toffee Tornados are blockers that will block and then damage(for one turn)one square on a board. After every move they will travel to a new and random square on the board to continue their disruption. They can never be cleared but can be disabled for 5 moves using a special candy.

The Conveyor Belt is a type of teleporter that appears in Candy Crush Saga. They will shift in a direction by moving either vertically or horizontally after every move.

The Cake Bomb takes the most amount of hits to clear than any other blocker in Candy Crush Saga. It is first introduced in level 366 of the Pudding Pagoda episode.
