Candy Cannon
Candy Cannon

candy cannon (also known as a dispenser) is an element that releases elements as liquorice swirls or bottles to the board when the candies below it are removed. It has a faucet and a panel which displays something that can appear. It is more fun because of the soda. The leaking direction of the faucet is normally down because of gravity without soda. But in some levels with soda, nothing can flow out of the cannon because the candies are buoyant. Therefore, the faucet of candy cannon is upside down so that the candies can flow out from the cannon.

How does it work?

  • See that little window with candy inside? Every time you clear the space in front of the cannon, that candy will appear.

You will often see special candies inside the candy cannon that can help you clear the level.

The upside down candy cannon

  • Sometimes, the candy cannon is shown upside down. This one requires two things to dispense candy. First, you will have to clear the space above the candy cannon but most of all you will have to make sure that there is soda above the candy cannon for the candy to go up!

Slot cannonsEdit

  • Mixed elements can produce special candies (Bluefish  Purplestripeh  Orangestripev  Redwrap  Colorbomb  Cyancoloring  Green bottle) or liquorice swirls (Liquorice swirl). You can realize a mixed cannon because the special candies, bottle or blocker will twirl continuously and reappear again (like Spe disp21). One cannon can contain three or more elements. The table below lists some elements can spawn from one cannon.

How does it work?

  • See that little window with candy inside? Every time the player clears the space in front of the cannon, that candy will appear.
  • The player will often see special candies inside the candy cannon that can help to complete the level.


  • The candy cannons appear on Candy Crush Saga, but some of the special candy cannons exist in the original saga. The cannons go under the same name too.
  • They also appear in Candy Crush Jelly Saga but soda cannons were replaced by purple jelly cannons, which doesn't exist here.
  • In the past version after Soda Splash, there were three bottles in soda cannon.
  • Level 668 is the first level whose dispenser can dispense all types of special candies.
