This took a couple of days. Kept getting the fruit stuck over the chocolate factory and havin to move it (essentially wasting moves). Then, I concentrated on keeping the fruit away from the wheels and had success. Janine Marie

I got this on my 3rd try by only concentrating on the left hand column of cream - the right hand column has a chocolate factory at the bottom, so even if you open it up the fruit tends to end up over the chocolate factory. Open up the bottom of the left column and the fruit will filter down.

Thanks for the tip about concentrating on the left side only. It worked for me.

This level is tricky! I've only got one ingredient through. I try concentrating on the left side as suggested above but sometimes I run out of moves on that side. It's not as easy as it looks!

Fruit only drops when one disappears.

James said...

The second fruit can still drop if you haven't brought down the first one, at least in the mobile version.

This level is a pain in my ass.

Next ingredient only drops when (1) previous one has exited at the bottom, or a certain number of moves remain; AND (2) the center column isn't blocked by chocolate, which happens more than often..
Having said that, if the chocolate takes over your center column, you can pretty much forget about passing the level.

The other pain in this level is your fruit landing on top of a chocolate factory. It takes so many moves to correct for that that beating the level becomes unlikely.

All in all, this level needs luck, lots of it.

Good luck!

Funny, whenever I post a comment, I seem to beat the level the moment after...

I passed this level by only playing the level when center column right off the start had any opportunities to get the fruit down at least 3 (or more) rows. If not, chances are chocolate will take over your center column, in which case I didn't even bother to start the level, but just waited for the 'perfect' board to appear.

Good luck.

Not having much luck passing this level. Will keep at it & try the left side tip :)

Got this in about 7 tries. Gotta keep control of the chocolate, don't let it take over too much. Also try to make any combos you can, but you already know that. Just take your time, and good luck!

Totally hard, chocolate takes over evrything

This level is for the birds! At least with 500 I could see how to win, but couldn't get the moves. Now! I can't even come close after a week of trying! Can't keep to the left when there are no moves. Yes, I am whining!

extremely lucky got it on the second try! you have to control the chocolate! I was able to get two chocolate bombs together which took out everything (including the chocolate and let one fruit drop, with the chocolate under control i was able to concentrate on getting the other fruits down!

Left side suggestion is money! Passed it first time when I tried that.

Had much better luck on the PC. Iphone at the most one fruit passed, PC managed to drop all 4 in 2 games!

Absolutely dreadful level. The above tips didn't work for me and free daily boosters didn't work either. I finally got a lucky board with lots of sprinkles (which didn't even appear in the majority of my games). I simply matched the sprinkles with colours beneath the fruit so that the fruit wouldn't end up over a chocolate factory.

Very tedious need combination to clear the board and get rid of the chocolate.

Raylo said...

Not having ANY luck with this board. Been on it forever, even with focusing on all the tips.

This level is crazy hard. Has anyone found anything that's works well?

I can't even get one fruit down, let alone 4. The fruit only comes out of the center. That's a problem. Usually chocolate has taken over that part of the board as I try to move the chocolate down.

Obviously taking down the wall is necessary. I have concentrated on the left. Doesn't seem to be any better than the right.

Any tips are appreciated.

I'm no expert, and usually always read the tips after I've failed at my first attempts. I tried concentrating on the left as suggested, failed level, on my 3rd attempt I passed with 3 stars, and don't remember how many moves I had left because once the striped and choc ball set off the bottom row, the game just took over my moves and kept exploding candies to rack up my score. How I succeeded this level was either I had lucked out with a good board, but I just concentrated again on just making stripes, wrapped and choc balls, accumulating them, and then set one combo off, and it was like a chain reaction setting off all the stripes and wraps, then after I accumulated special candies for the 3rd time, that explosion cleared out all the remaining candies. Good luck.
