A special candy is an unofficial name for a candy that has powerful effects once cleared and matched. Upon activation, its power will destroy more candies and yield a much greater score than a simple match of three. They can also be matched when just 2 special candies are side-by-side; the match will produce a very powerful effect much stronger than if they are activated separately.

These are all special candies and their combinations in Candy Crush Soda Saga. Each has its effect, which can help a player pass a level.

Trivia

  • If you create another special candy during having a striped candy or more, they won't be destroyed immediately by striped candy. This is the difference when you play Candy Crush Saga.
  • Combining Color Bomb + Coloring Candy was redesigned after some players said that the combination was similar like combining two color bombs.
  • Combining Color Bomb with Wrapped candies in Candy Crush Saga was the same as one in Candy Crush Soda Saga after Taffy Treetops was released (create many wrapped candies in the same colour).
