A candy cannon (also known as a dispenser) is an element that releases elements such as Licorice 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.
