Blockers are very common elements and main obstacles in Candy Crush Soda Saga. They prevent a player from accomplishing a level goal. They usually take up a tile (1x1 square) or even a square (2x2 square).They can take on one or more of the following functions: 
  • Prevent candies from being accessed (e.g. liquorice locks) 
  • Prevent candies from taking up a tile unless cleared (e.g. cupcakes) 
  • Block special candy effects (e.g. liquorice swirls) 
  • Cover up candies (e.g. chocolate) 

Blockers are the main obstacles of the board, so the player has to clear them. Nearly every level has at least one type of blocker. Levels can have up to three to six types of blockers.

Most blockers make levels harder. For example, blockers like Six-layered Ice Cube requires six hits before they disappear and are one of the biggest obstacles in most levels. Jelly Cake (when cleared) takes a layer off all blockers and destroys all special candies on the board.

Sometimes, blockers are useful because they can prevent chocolate from spreading and very necessary for some type of levels. For example, if the player wants to pass a chocolate level, they have to eat all chocolate on the board.

There are many different types of blockers, each having different properties, so a player has to deal with each one differently. Some are easier to deal with, some harder.

31 1811 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.

  • In the levels with a lot of sections, if the blockers don't belong to the current section after the player completes the levels, all of them will be removed.
  • Ironically, two-layered cupcake is presented in the initial layout before the one-layered cupcake. However, one-layered cupcake can be seen if a layer is removed from a two-layered cupcake.
  • Peppermint stick is introduced 715 levels further than liquorice link, being the longest wait for the appearance of a new blocker in the game.
  • Yellow Liquorice Link is a slightly modified version of Liquorice Link, with its first appearance being Level 2831.
  • Pancake appears in the game from Level 3431, the blocker being the game's first ever movable multi-layered blocker.
