How do Candy Bombs work?

Candy Bombs are one of the most challenging obstacles in Candy Crush Saga. This tricky colorful blocker spawns with a number inside. The bomb counter can be as high as 50 or as low as 1. Every time you make a move, the number will decrease by one number. Tic tac tic tac… Don’t let it explode! If the counter reaches 0, game over! You will have to start over again. Candy Bombs are a high priority goal in any level. Not paying attention to the bomb number can make you lose the game. Keep an eye on them!


Candy bombs can spawn with random counters from 50 to 1. Be careful with Mystery Candies. They might bring an undesired surprise. A Candy Bomb!

They can be combined with many other blockers. Making it a little bit harder to clear. Bombs trapped in marmalade, Liquorice locks or in sugar chests will still explode if the timer reaches 0. Try to free them to be able to clear the Candy Bomb as soon as you can. Remember that the counter will keep decreasing!
