Candy Crush Saga Liquorice/ Licorice

By Adrian Gardner.

Liquorice (licorice?) ... from level 81 this stuff appears, 
replacing candies. 

It can "fall" like normal candies and is destroyed when a 

match is made (by you, or as a consequence of one of your 

moves) next to it ... this can be on either side, above or 


Certain levels start with some and/or it falls "into" the
play area when back-filling the grid 

after you've played your move. 

You can also swap it with a normal candy to make a valid


However it differs from normal candies in two regards ...

One: It can't make groups of three (or more, etc) ... so it's 

like an unmatchable candy .... 

So three Liquorice in a row isn't a valid combo.

Two: It stops "blast" type combos ... so a striped candy

blast will hit the first liquorice it meets and STOP ...

Candies (or other liquorice) beyond the first will stay as they 

are ... this makes it quite hard to clear large numbers of 

them and restricts some of your combos.

Sadly there are few tricks to rid yourself of this annoyance ... 

Try and play near it so it gets removed. 

One special which WILL remove it ALL 

is a spotted-on-spotted ... 

Although getting two of these, AND next to each other,
(as you can't move them!), is a real challenge!

... and to think I used to like liquorice as a kid!
