A liquorice link occupies one square and is stuck until cleared. A chain of liquorice links is linked together by the bubble gum string.
You can destroy the links by making a match next to it in an adjacent square or by hitting it with a special candy. If one link in a chain of links is destroyed, the whole chain is destroyed with it.
Color bomb + color bomb combination can take off one layer of all liquorice links, but they can be destroyed immediately if one of them in a chain has one-layered liquorice link. Color bomb + coloring candy can strip all types of liquorice links.
In later episodes, liquorice links can now trap candies and other elements. Those elements trapped inside liquorice links cannot be destroyed by making matches or special candies' effects. However, they are still connected with some normal liquorice links so that the player can break them.

In Candy Crush Saga, one of its blockers, 'Rainbow Twist', share the same properties as this blocker. However, that blocker can have up to 5 layers (though unlike this game, which can have up to 4 only).
