Keep an eye on the moves left, if you haven't clear existing cherry/nut they come in move 30, 15 and 1.

ccc's tips:
1. difficult, especially if the ingredient starts on the of the chocolate machine
2. try to make wraps
3. try to make vertical stripes
4. don't worry too much about destroying the blocks below
5. if you can make donut with stripes
6. i used wraps a lot to destroy the blocks

edit:
location of the ingredient could be a problem as u may have to move it left or right such that it can drop .
Hints(that doesn't used additional moves):
Next 2 ingredients drop at move 30 , 15
the last one drop condition is after you clear all the other 3 ingredients.
as show in video the best way is to do a colour bomb + stripe combo.

This level has a bad bug. The fruits do not drop out of the machines at the top but rather randomly - including columns that fall on top of a chocolate factory. This means you have to move fruits left and right which is SO difficult with these 6-color levels!

You will NOT complete this level without a very lucky start. This is where the mobile app has a HUGE advantage over the facebook app.

I agree with you... to me its impossible..

FIGURED IT OUT!!!!!!!

Get two wrapped candies next each other and mix! KABOOOM! Clears the bottom blocks. Then try to only move the row where the existing ingredients are. Used two big candies to help clear. (Wrapped + Striped)

Good Luck!! (cleared on iPhone app)

I finally passed it (using my android)! I was lucky and my first fruit came down the right column and not a chocolate factory one. I kept making vertical stripe candies and taking out the same row until I cleared the path and let the first fruit fall through. The next fruit came down that same column, and I was able to make another vertical stripe candy and take out the column again. I focused on that one column - not anywhere else on the board - and kept making vertical stripe candies until all the fruit passed through. I finished with ten moves left and got two stars.

Thank you! I used your strategy and passed this level! You must begin with the fruit in the correct column . One trick that I used (on my iPhone) is if the fruit is in the wrong place at the beginning, you can exit out by using the door icon and begin again, without losing a life.

this level sucks

Anonymous said...

There are other bugs too in this level. When i expected a striped it became spotted, and from no intend a wrapped was created. These doesnt happen always but im sure i noticed them

Anonymous said...

Thank you for all e tips here. Very helpful. I used this above strategy as well as making sure the fruit is in the right column. Needed to keep trying and make sure all other fruits fall in the same column. Was successful after a number of attempts. This strategy works. Keep trying and you will get thru. I also found that it is easier on iPad than android. Anyway, I am just glad I got thru. :)

Anonymous said...

Thanks so much! Finally! Seems like the faster you get the first ingredient down the better chance the next falls from the same column. Was stuck for over a month but finished in about 5 tries after following the above advice.

Anonymous said...

Same strategy here, Get all fruits dropping from same column. It looks if you can clear the first fruit faster, easier to get fruits drop from same column. strip candy really helps to clear the first path.

Anonymous said...

Right. Tried about 500 times but finally succeeded. I got all fruit in the same column and got them through with striped candies. Got 123000 points but only 2 stars. Well, I'm satisfied with that :)

lol, you have a way with understatement! Reminds me 208, aimlessly pushing candies around until you die!

I finally got this level done this morning after 6 wks of playing on my ipad, android and comp Itook notice of all the comments. i got all the fruits in the same column (move 30,15,1 the fruits drop so try make a move in same colunm) they were at the bottom with 1 steel cube and one go left so i purchased the lolly to smack that cube into next week lol! hey presto i beat the SOB!!!
I thank all bloggers for all there comments.
Also for ipad, android users when there are no more levels left keep checking for updates on this game because after a week of ending my levels CC put 10 more on so not long to wait to carry on playing this silly game.
GOOD LUCK candy crushers

Happy Happy Happy Dance! After reading the comments I went back with renewed vigor and after 7 more tries I have beat this most miserable level. I think I have been on this one 6 weeks and never got more than 2 fruit through - mostly never even got close. I almost gave up because I felt like I just could not beat it, but knowing others had, I kept trying. Patience and persistence is the word. I am so relieved. Now I wonder what lies ahead?!

Anonymous said...

I passed it on my computer! I followed all the advice above and finally passed it. Just keep clearing the column that the first fruit is on. You have to keep the chocolate in check now and then but keep clearing the same column and it works.

Anonymous said...

Very usefull tip above : try to keep focus on the same column. Took me many tries though, but finally did it !

Anonymous said...

After a few weeks I read the above and the key is the fruit on the same line, after that my first attempt I got 3 fruit down and then the next go I cleared it. Really is easy once you know how. Just ensure you look at the number of moves left and on 30 and 15 and 1 make sure you move around the column you want the fruit to drop. 362 is another funny level, they are certainly hard after 350!

Anonymous said...

I spent ages trying to do this level but completed it soon after reading this strategy. I kept going for the right hand column and ignored the chocolate build up on the left.

Incredibly I did it with 19 moves left!! 19,,,

Cheers guys

Anonymous said...

I thought level 350 was bad but this level sucks!! Can't get past it. I've got down to 3/4 then either the chocolates get me or I can't get the right colours together and run out of moves. Time to give up Candy Crush for good, it's draining my life!

Anonymous said...

The hints worked perfectly, I only got one star but who ares to get by this one! Thanks!

Anonymous said...

The hints worked. Took a while but finally made it. Only one star but what the heck!

I just beat it with 16 moves left and achieved three stars with the sugar crush! It's true that you need a good setup so I got a wrapped candy to blast away most of the blocks below and then a stripe-wrap combo to get the first cherry cleared. The board then brought down a nut but set me up for a color bomb so used that to blow up the candy piece to drop the nut. The next cherry then fell into the same column and I was able to make a vertical stripe to get that down. For the final one, I was trying to create another vertical stripe but ended up accidentally with a wrapper and then got the stripe wrapper combo for the win! I feel very fortunate since I didn't have to worry about making a combo when move 30 or 15 was coming up to keep it all in the same column. Like all boards, just keep at it and you will eventually beat it!

Thanks so much to whomever started this tip post. Within 30-40 mins. of reading here, I managed to finish the level. Could have done it even sooner but I made a dumb mistake of moving over a down striped candy with only about 4 moves left. Couldn't get it back over. If I hadn't moved it, I would have defeated the level in about 20 mins. Thanks for the tips.

so not playable

killing level!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Wow! Difficult level. Making 2 wrapped candies next to each other as quickly as possible really helps Then other combinations that will do major damage is needed. Good luck!! PM

Anonymous said...


Closest I've got is one fruit left and prob a move away..I should hv paid for extra moves...but don't want to yet...but after nearly 2 days i'm sure if i get that close again I will..my frustration is that other fruit comes in the wrong columns or that i don't get combos in the right columns!! will plod on

Anonymous said...

Just finishef again one column moves 15 30 essential. Bit of luck needed but can be done.

Jude said...

Absolutely right. Concentrate on one column only. Wrapped candies are your friend. Got it within about 5 plays of following the instructions :)

Anonymous said...

Any more tips to help, still cant do this stupid level & it is actually driving me to despair!

Anonymous said...

I read the comment "just keep clearing the same column that had the fruit in it first" and it worked the first time for me! Genius! I had been trying maybe 100 times before I read this tip.

Anonymous said...

This has got to be the toughest level yet! I've been down to one fruit several times but can't get it through the bottom. I have never paid for boosters. No lollipop hammers left :( I want to know how everyone is able to play one column and one column only. If the fruit is on the far right, movement is limited by the edge. Please help!

Anonymous said...

I thought 350 was bad. I hate this level. It is boring. I have read all of the tips and have only gotten to one left one time. I need a good board. I will keep at it for now.

Anonymous said...

It would be nice to get a good board. I am hating this level, it is so boring. I have read all of the tips and have come close once. Most of the time I can't clear the bottom. I have never thought I would give up but this may be the level I say this is enough. I love this game but this is the most boring level I have ever played.

Shawn said...

Beat it the third try on the last move.
I cleared the bottom blocks first with a color bomb and a stripped, and made a lot of vertical stripped candies to send the fruits.

Anonymous said...

No matter what I do I can't get the bottom blocks cleared. I am ready to just give up. I need a good board!

Mich CoccaBene said...

Giving it one more week then I'm deleting the entire game. this level is not fun at all and is aggravating.

Anonymous said...

Again when I saw the number of comments on this level i was like here we go again, level 350 all over again?
But amazingly i passed this level first try with a few moves to spare. Everything went by fast so i was so shocked it was that simple.
All the ingredients came down in one column only which was weird after reading your comments. What i did different from the walkthrough video was i only tried opening one column only, the column where the first ingredient came from, all the rest i kept closed. So all the rest of ingredients came down from there only.
The ingredients do not come down together though they come after a few moves then 2nd ingredient comes down.
Have fun crushing everyone ! -LEI

Karyn said...

Thanks everyone for the tips I got this level after many many tries with 20 moves to go. I got a good board to start and all ingredients down in one column. That is really the trick to this one. Good luck to everyone and just keep trying

Anonymous said...

Thanks guys, thought I was going to stuck on this one for 6 weeks like Level 350...but some great tips got me through soon as I read here...especially making sure they come down the same line and also watching out for the 30 15 1 Thank god for forums!!! :)

Anonymous said...

How can you win this if the last ingredient appears right before the last move?

Anonymous said...

I passed this level by clearing the jelly at the bottom of the column with the first fruit BEFORE trying to bring the actual fruit down. Once the fruit is down it's much harder to clear the jelly.

Anonymous said...

OK, so now I get it....the things drop at 30, 15, and1, if you don't clear any ingredients. If you do clear out your ingredients, the new ones come sooner. I finished with 26 moves to spare! (Lucky board for sure!)

Anonymous said...

I see some of you were lucky enough to get through... not so for me. Just another exercise in futility and no good moves to do anything, nevermind keeping things clear in one column or making wraps or whatever. There's just little that can be done. Only once did I break through the bottom and one fruit got through, that's it. Usually I never even break through the bottom. Really tired of these impossible levels... glad there were some fun ones, but all too soon again you get one like this that you get so sick of playing. Not even as interested in trying anymore, which may be a good thing. Bah.

Anonymous said...

No luck so far with this level. Not many moves & certainly few chances to make combos to help. Get the fruit stuck at the bottom & then cannot clear. Dislike this very much!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Finally got through after about a week I think. I was just sitting here thinking I can't even stand playing it anymore, and I got a miracle board! Got 2 or 3 color bombs out of nowhere really, and they made the holes in the bottom for the ingredients to get through... sometimes with a stripe and sometimes just mixing it with the color candy that was blocking the exit. And finished with many moves to spare! Yay, so glad to move on. Don't give up, sooner or later that magic board comes around!!

Anonymous said...

You CAN do it! I was just about to give up and delete CC, when I got a stripe and a chocolate! No booster, mostly luck with a little skill! Should have seen this 58 year old woman jumping up and down fist pumping!

Joni said...

I got very lucky and completed in about 8 tries. The tips here really helped. What I did was really try for wraps. I couldn't get two together, but mixing with striped low on board helped clear the bottom. I was able to do this twice and the fruit/acorns just slid right out.

Anonymous said...

I'm going to have to find a new addiction. I have tried the tips above many, many times and still don't come close to completing.

Anonymous said...

In follow up to my Nov 11 post, I continued to try and finally completed the level but not sure how it happened! I did focus on clearing the bottom so the fruit could get out if it ever got to the bottom. Guess it was a combo of luck and persistence.

Anonymous said...

This is the level that will make me quit. It's hard enough without the chocolate. I've read the tips but they haven't helped a bit. I don't even get close to opening the bottom let alone in the right columns.

cherylcandycrush here.

Just as bad as level 350, folks.
Most times I could not punch a hole through anywhere or even get a score above 8000.
It was looking dire.

As for only making moves over one spot, good luck with that one.

But I am through. You need to be sent a board where you can start off with a bang-maybe 2 candies or a colour bomb & special candy, so that you can clear a passage.
That happened to me and 2 fruit went through well before half way through the game.

Okay, now this is where you then try to concentrate on moves roughly in that area where the holes are. I was lucky enough to see I had a high score, then got the other 2 fruit one on top of each other, but then no vertical candy in that row to blast them through.

Now if you get anywhere close like this, it is NOT the time to be stingy. Have a look at how many moves left. I had about 8.
I used the red hand. Moved my vertical striped candy over so I could blast the chocolate over the hole. Had there only been the coloured candies, I was prepared to use the lollipop hammer.

So for all you average players like me out there, use the red hand or the hammer if you get anywhere close.

The next 3 levels after this are real easy, the work of 10 minutes, so take heart.

Gerard said...

I managed to complete this level with no boosters! It IS possible. Just make sure your VERY FIRST move blows the forst layer of the merengues right underneath the 1st visible fruit. It helps if this is visible in one of the side-columns. Then keep playing that colomn, especially when you have 31 and 16 left, as 30 and 15 will bring new fruits.

To get a perfect start, exit without playing anything by using the [door]-symbol until you have a perfect board. Sounds annoying (and after a while it is), but this won't cost you any life.

Good luck!

Anonymous said...

I have struggled with this level more than any other because it just seemed impossible. After reading the tips to concentrate solely on the column with the fruit, I have beaten it quickly. Of all the advice out there for this level that is the only thing that helped.

Anonymous said...

This is me, formally giving up this game forever.
I am sooo bored of coming up against levels which are virtually impossible from the outset and which end up with me aimlessly moving candies around
I WANT A GAME WHICH IS FUN TO PLAY

Anonymous said...

the video sure makes it look simple but I don't get those combo's like that - grrrr

Anonymous said...

Ok I read the tips for this level and spent 3 weeks without winning, so with the help of all the coconut wheels and lollipops from free spends I got through it with only one star. I try not to complain but when the last fruit come on 1 move left the candies must all align or you are not going to win. I am okay with levels being hard but this one should be reworked by the developers.

Anonymous said...

OMG.....was thinking this was the one that was going to beat me. I tried the clearing only the columns where the candies fall. my second candy fell in a different column....but this worked first try for me .... i had two lollipops from the wheel, so rather than waste moves and risk that last candy shifting...I just banged the two under it and game over....and a nice sugar crush at the end. still only 2 stars but good riddance. won't be coming back to try to do better. LOL

duktor said...

Hello
Excuse my english. I was bored with this level after reading your tips too. But I left my wife to play it and do it at first time!!!! She is playing level 540 actually so she is a real expert.
Only to let you know the level is not impossible to do.
When you throw the third fruit, the last one falls immediatly, so you can use many moves for the last one.

Anonymous said...

Great job! I finally made it! It was a good advice to focus only on one column!!! Thanks a lot!

Michelle dv said...

Oh, such a frustrating level! It needs a lot of luck!! Somehow, I ended up with three fruit on the right hand side of the board all stuck down the bottom. No choc bombs or wraps and barely a striped to be seen. Meanwhile the left side was mostly covered with chocolate. I used my last two free lollipop hammers to get that fruit through and then at 9 turns remaining my last fruit fell out also on the right side and I had an ok line up for it to drop down. I had to buy two more lollipop hammers (grrr - don't like doing that) but it was worth it just to move on. So glad to move on.

Anonymous said...

Really King? I was under the impression that this was supposed to be fun. It might be doable if it was not for the annoying chocolate.

I posted the above remark on July 16th. I had been playing on my Kindle Fire and could not get past this level. I decided to play it on my PC last night and did it on my first try!

After weeks of trying level 361 I looked at your site and did it first time! I promise you its the truth
