Blockers, more commonly known as obstacles, are very common elements in Candy Crush Soda Saga that prevent the player from reaching a level goal. They usually take up a tile or can even much of an area.

Properties vary, but may include:

The player must clear these Blockers. Nearly every level has at least one type of Blocker, and levels can have have a max of 6 types.

Most blockers make levels harder. For instance, Six-layered Ice Cubes require six hits before being destroyed and are one of the major obstacles in most levels.

However, blockers can benefit to your progress, such as Jelly Cake that, when cleared, takes a layer off all blockers and detonates all special candies on the board. In rare cases, blockers prove useful in Chocolate Levels and very necessary for other types of levels. For example, if the player wants to pass a chocolate level, they have to eat all chocolate on the board.

Some are easier to deal with, some harder.

Blocker First level Last level (outdated) Properties
Liquorice Lock

? ? Locks candies in place. Removed by matching 3 or more using the candy in it. Has different properties if it is on something without color.


9 1819 Maximum of five layers. The one-layered version is the easiest blocker to be cleared. Cleared by matching candies next to it.


76 Last Chocolate Level here Brown Chocolate multiplies if not broken in a move. White chocolate spreads by one and adds a layer on an existing one layered piece if not broken in a move. The white one can have up to two layers and is independent from the brown one: If a match only breaks brown chocolate, the white chocolate will still multiply itself.
Cracker 76 Last Chocolate Level Chocolate spreads within the area of the cracker. Once all of the chocolate were cleared within the cracker area, the cracker clears all the candies and detonates special candies. It is only available in Chocolate levels where brown and white chocolate, sometimes locked, were within a cracker.


31 ? Maximum of six layers. The one-layered version is the easiest blocker to be cleared. Can have candies or Liquorice Swirls in them. The comb honey is unlocked unofficially at level 35. Honey will be cleared if any candy next to it is destroyed, not necessarily by performing a match (candies destroyed by striped candies next to Honey, for example, will still affect it).

  • In levels with several sections, if the blockers don't belong to the current section after the player completes the level, all will be removed.
  • Ironically, two-layered cupcake is presented in the initial layout before one-layered cupcake. However, one-layered cupcake can be seen if a layer is removed from a two-layered cupcake. This is the old version.
  • New Version: One-layered Cupcakes are introduced at Level 9, and Two-layered Cupcakes Level 11.
