The new special candies and how special candies combine with one another are some of the best new additions to the series, but because there are so many combinations it can be hard to remember them all and use special candies to their fullest.

Much like in Candy Crush Saga, using special candies well in Candy Crush Soda Saga is a big part of pushing through the game’s levels. This is especially true the higher level you get to.

You’ve seen the special candies in-game, but you may not know how to get some of them regularly. Here’s a quick rundown of all the special candies found in the game and what to combine to make them.

Below this section is a list of all the special candy combinations and how they work. You can go right down to the Special Candy combos list with this link, or just scroll down. Whichever you prefer!

Special candies and how to make them

Swedish Fish

Matching 4 candies in a square creates a homing Swedish Fish. These candies home in on a random obstruction or soda bottle.

 

Striped Candies

Matching four candies either horizontally or vertically will create a Striped Candy.

These candies wipe an entire line or column, including obstructions. If you make a vertical match of 4, you will get a horizontal Stripe Candy. A horizontal match of 4 makes a vertical Stripe Candy.

 

Wrapped Candies

 

Creating a match of 5 in these shapes at any angle will create an explosive Wrapped Candy.

Wrapped Candies explode twice: Once when they are matched, and again after the surrounding candies have settled after the first explosion.

 

 

Color Bombs

Creating a match of 5 in a straight vertical or horizontal line will create a powerful Color Bomb.

When swapped with another candy, Color Bombs will destroy all candies of that color.

This has some particularly powerful combinations, as covered below.

 

 

Coloring Candy

The Coloring Candy is made by making a match of 6, with a matching candy next to a line of 5.

This candy is particularly powerful, much like color bombs. When swapped with a candy of another color, they change all candies of the swapped candy’s color to that of the Coloring Candy.

For example, if you swap a green Coloring Candy with a yellow, all yellow candies will become green.

 

Special candy combinations

There are a number of powerful special candy combinations to be found on Candy Crush Soda Saga, and they can be harder to remember than the original Candy Crush Saga just because there are more of them.

Here we’re going to cover what they all are, so you can make the most of each move as you push through the game’s levels.
