Candy Crush Saga level 991

Hints and tips for level 991 Candy Crush Saga
You will need to grow the lower of the three popcorns to allow the fruit to fall. It doesn't matter about the other two popcorns, they are not in the way but you can grow them if you have plenty of moves.
Collect the keys and clear the middle popcorn and then work under the fruit to allow it to fall.
The next fruit will fall after the first one is off the board. All three ingredients fall from the same dispenser but they can only fall if there is space for them to fall into so the candies or licorice have to be cleared from under the dispenser to allow them to fall.

There have been many complaints that the fruit is not dropping on level 991 and at the moment there doesn't seem to be much you can do if it happens to you except keep trying and don't waste boosters.
It has not happened to me so really can't say if there is a way to get the ingredients to drop or it's just bad luck if they don't.
King have been informed of the problem so hopefully it will be fixed soon.

Hope I can help by sharing my experience on this level & hopefully you will have a better road...There is a "glitch" with many players including myself that nobody really knows its solution..Its sort of a crap shoot & pray...The glitch is that the 3rd ingredient never shows & some people have had many moves left but no chance??? I found level otherwise somewhat hard just unlocking & getting the keys which is a must to unlock dispenser & then the most important the middle popcorn needs blown to allow ingredients to drop to exits...The licorice can also be a pain...I completed it twice where I had a good shot at winning but once the last cherry did not appear ? & once ran out of moves trying to clear licorice for the last cherry...After many tears & screams & at least 20 tries I got the keys early & had 2 stripe/wrap combos open middle corn & was able to work 2 ingredients down quickly & prayed last cherry to appear..It did & managed to clear enough licorice to get cherry just above exit with 1 move left..I used a lollyhammer from daily spin & said thank god its done..Hopefully the glitch will be fixed by Crush people or it does not affect you...If it does know your not alone & keep trying.All else aside the only things needed are the " keys " & the Middle Corn...Don't waste moves on other popcorn if not necessary...Good Luck

Similar problem here. A couple of times I have been lucky enough to get the first ingredient to drop early, then have waited the rest of the game for the other ones to show up, and they never did.

Anonymous said...

The other (2) ingredients NEVER fall out. Very frustrating.

Anonymous said...

same here. only one ingredient shows up.

Anonymous said...

Same here, 3rd fruit never shows up! So frustrating!!!!!!

What a horrible, horrible level! If you are experiencing the glitch, you MUST open the top bombs first, and then the bottom bomb. I was finally able to do it in that order, cleared the level with 20 moves left. Shame on you King for not testing something like this...

Anonymous said...

Same problem! Using the cinnamon roll I could have won easily, but the last two ingredients never appeared. Good booster wasted.

Anonymous said...

Same problem here. 3rd ingredient doesn't fall out. When will this be fixed before I get to the next level?

Anonymous said...

I don't believe it's a bug. The only way to get the ingredients to fall is to clear the candies in the middle column below the dispenser where the cherries fall. If you try and use a horizontal stripe, the unpopped popcorn on either side of the dispenser might block it. I used a peppermint wheel booster at the beginning, and also needed to use a switch when the first cherry dropped to the left of the drop column. At this point I still had 16 moves left. I then used additional peppermint wheels to clear candies in the middle column, allowing new cherries to fall. Completed the game with 3 stars and several moves left. I think this level is do-able without boosters, but I just ran out of patience. I have so many boosters now from the sugar drops.

There have been some ridiculous levels, but WTF?!? is up with this one, kind of hard to get three cherries when only one ever falls - screw you King I'm done

Jay said...

I took in a coconut wheel which hit the popcorn and keys on the first shot. Hit the popcorn again which also go a wrapped candy, then all three quickly came out. Finished the level in less than 12 moves. Good luck all.

Anonymous said...

I was able to see the last cherry drop a couple of times for me. Seemed like the 3rd cherry will drop if you have 5 or less turns left. The other times I had a lot of turns left after the 2nd cherry dropped but the 3rd cherry never came. I had to burn a couple of candy smashers just to get out of that godforsaken level.

Candy Crush owes me money. After I got the first two cherrys, I spent about 200 gold bars to continue, took about 90 more moves and never got the fruit to drop before I quit in frustration. Not spending another dime on this money pit.

Anonymous said...

Same here, only one ingredient, fix this King.....so boring!

Anonymous said...

I used a coconut wheel twice and each time it only appeared once in the game - total waste. Boring, boring level with much of the time spent in making useless "3 moves" round the edges because that's all you can do. Losing interest as there is very little opportunity for skilfull play.

Anonymous said...

Same here, only one ingredient fell numerous times. Once I had 20 moves left and was waiting for the third ingredient to drop and it never did. I kept clearing the center row as well.

Anonymous said...

same here guys...
I got 2 ingredients in only 20 moves and waited for 3rd..but it is not coming down in any case.....
Mr. king please fix it...

Anonymous said...

Please fix the glitch and LET US KNOW WHEN IT IS FIXED! I am upset right now because I have used all my gold bars and special ingredients to get the third cherry to drop. I thing Candy Crush owes us. Some levels are frustrating enough to make us want to quit, but when it is a glitch, it makes me want to stop playing the game.

Anonymous said...

Good thing I'm stuck on this one. I'll come back in a week or two to see if they fixed the glitch. Second and third cherry never falls. What a piece of crap. At least I can do other things with my time now.

Anonymous said...

You have to just burst nougatine middle and not the other 2 under and like that every time a cherry clears another appears!

Anonymous said...

Definite glitch. I dropped the first cherry with 20 moves left and another never appeared. I'm quitting till they fix this.


Anonymous said...

I think they have fixed it. I've been having trouble for days and this last time I got multiple candy bombs and made it through easily with no boosters. The popcorn on the right never burst. Three stars! Try again and so if it works for you now. I saw on another board that one of the Candy Crush moderators said they were investigating it. Good luck!

Anonymous said...

After having the third ingredient fail to fall several times in the past days, this morning it finally fell with many moves left however on the move when I finally put it through the bottom with a wrap stripe combo my game locked up and I was not given credit for the level and am still playing it. Not only that but I had to reload the game and lost my 8 gift lives that I had waiting for me. I have a good computer and I believe it is another game glitch. Very frustrating and I believe my computer was not at fault as this has never happened to me before on this computer. I am still trying despite all the difficulties and I see that a couple of fellow players have made it through so I'm just going have to to be patient and keep trying.

The next fruit will fall after the first one is off the board. All three ingredients fall from the same dispenser but they can only fall if there is space for them to fall into so the candies or licorice have to be cleared from under the dispenser to allow them to fall.

carmen hicks said...

Definitely a glitch --- with or without licorice blocking the fruit dispenser area. At times, only 1 fruit would fall with many moves to go although most of the time 2 passed through and then no 3rd one. I did finally pass this just now on a wing and a prayer and coconut wheel. (I had 10+ stored free boosters from the sugar drop and kept using them....this last one worked). I, too, saw that CC is "investigating the glitch" ---- maybe they're trying to tweak it a bit.

Anonymous said...

Ugh! I thought it was me, last fruit never drops. Buzz kill King.

Anonymous said...

I get the first two to come down really quickly sometimes but I had 24 moves left and the third didn't. Is there someone sorting this out. My friend got through the whole thing in one attempt.

Anonymous said...

I am yet another person who could not get the third fruit to fall. Took many times playing this level just to get any fruit to fall. Difficult level. Just wish it would work properly. I'll check back later to see if they fixed it.

Anonymous said...

The third cherry will only show if you clear the second cherry to the bottom with 5 or less turns left.

Joanne Murray said...

Ridiculous. I just played the level for the umpteenth time. Got rid of the popcorn. One cherry dropped down and I got that out the way. I continued playing, there was nothing in the way of the fruit drop to stop the cherries coming out, but they just did not appear. How can I possibly win the level, if I'm not even given the cherries. I just got in touch with King.com, to let them know, but highly unlikely they'll pay any attention. Very frustrating!

Anonymous said...

That's the second time I cleared two of the fruits. Plenty of room for the third fruit to fall, all licorice gone. Not sure what it means I have to clear the second cherry to the bottom with 5 or less turns left. This is a ridiculous level and I'm really not happy.

Anonymous said...

How is this level winnable? I got a good board, popped the central popcorn, freed the keys and used both to free the first cherry and drop it off the board, all in the first sixteen moves. I had thirty-four moves left, and in those thirty-four moves, the second cherry did not appear? What is the secret to this level? If the cherry drops too soon, does that mean no further cherries will fall? In another try, I got a second cherry released but could not clear it off the board in time, but no cherries in thirty-four moves? I have also noticed that in the columns below the licorice dispensers, if the licorice is cleared, sometimes candy will fall into the empty spaces, and other times, they remain vacant. It's seemingly random. Clearly, there are bugs in this level and they should be fixed. Lately, King has been pushing out new levels every week rather than every other week, so some of the code is buggy. There's no point spending money on extra moves or boosters if the level is buggy, because how many extra moves do I have to buy before the next cherry appears?

Anonymous said...

Again, could not get the third cherry to come down with 23 moves left. Got lucky and had two sprinkle balls together. No licorice in the way. Absurd. I'll just spend time collecting boosters. Certainly won't waste my boosters until they change this.

Anonymous said...

A couple of the comments above are mine. I finally got through. Not sure how many moves I had left when the third fruit came down. I used a hammer (probably didn't need to use it, though) and then had to use 5 more moves, although it took only two moves to finish. Glad to be through this level. Really helpful if you can get two sprinkles next to each other.

Anonymous said...

Playing this on Facebook I noticed you have to destroy ALL 3 popcorn blocks for all 3 ingredients to drop. If you only destroy 1, only the one on screen drops. You destroy 2, a 2nd ingredient drops. It took a while to get all three destroyed but it finally worked. I am sure it is a glitch that needs to be corrected but you can pass it with some hard work and determination.

Anonymous said...

I can't even get to the end of my moves before I am bored to tears with this level. Ugh...

Anonymous said...

King is staffed by incompetent morons. High schoolers could write better code than these idiots.

My glitch is whenever I clear the licorice swirls from the bottom, no candies fall into the empty space, so you can't play in the space under the fruit, then after a few turns, it all just fills in with swirls again, impossible to play the level. WTF, do they ever test anything????

Anonymous said...

after focusing on working "bottom up" (to no avail), I finally got a lucky board and had a wrapped/stripe and then wrapped/wrapped combo up top which cleared the popcorn and opened everything up. Still needed all of my sprinkles though to clear the bottom due to the licorice.

Jennifer said...

Haven't made it far enough yet to see if I'm having the glitch with the ingredients falling, but I am having the licorice glitch where the candies won't fall into the space underneath and then in one or two moves, it refills all the way with licorice again, making it impossible to clear them or play underneath.

Jennifer said...

Just made it through. Each ingredient fell after I got the prior one off the board - next move, another ingredient would fall. Beat the game with 12 moves left, so I didn't have to wait for less than five moves left for the last ingredient to fall, like some players said they had to, and I only broke the popcorn in the middle and didn't have to break all three like some people were thinking. Don't know if they finally fixed it, or if I just got lucky.

Anonymous said...

No idea if there's a glitch because I haven't got rid of that middle popcorn yet. The video makes it look fairly easy but I'm not getting anything as good. Posting here hoping to get some good All Help luck, because it's worked before!

Anonymous said...

If u have a glitch I suggest u update your application. I had no issue however only started this station today and had only completed an update few hours b4 this was released for android. Done on 3rd attempt

Jane said...

I just got Sugar Crush and three stars and I didn't see it happen. I got the middle popcorn but the keys were still locked. Had a sprinkle and stripe which opened the keys. I was using a coconut wheel and I played the second one and it was over. I didn't even see the fruit fall! Talk about luck. Wow!

Anonymous said...

Just got the update on android and passed first go with 3 stars (still hadn't got anywhere on the computer!) Got two wrappeds together above the popcorn, which did a lot of damage, then worked through and finished with 18 moves remaining.

Cat said...

Either I got really lucky or they fixed whatever glitches. First try didn't even come remotely close. Second try got the middle, and only the middle, popcorn and somehow everything else went right. I wish the same for the rest of you.

Anonymous said...

I would suggest using the Coconut Wheel. I got several of them and finished with a lot of moves left. Only tried this level 2 times. Not so bad.

Anonymous said...

Got this on my second try.
A coconut wheel did not help me at all. I got two of them and they were placed where I couldn't use them to my advantage.
So, I just used a lot of very careful moves. I didn't get through the middle popcorn until I only had five moves left. I got two cherries through easily and the third one dropped but I ended up having to use one lollipop hammer with one move left to exit it.
Three stars.
I thought I'd be on this one for awhile.

Coconut wheel is the way to go! NC

After reading the comments here, I used my last coconut wheel and one lollipop hammer. I tried this level with no boosters and got nowhere.

The post at 15:56 is my troll.

Smh. Guess this person still hasnt found a life.

Anonymous said...

Frustrating level. I wanted to beat it without boosters but finally tried a coconut wheel. I have a bunch of them saved up. I was lucky in that it came back a few times but beat the level easily with 3 stars.

Anonymous said...

Read the tips here, and started out with a coconut wheel. It gave me multiple coconut wheels, and with the help of 2 hand swaps at the end I beat it on the first try, 3 stars. Good luck!!

Anonymous said...

Crappy level. If you don't get matches in the bottom left then you are screwed. The shape of the board makes it very difficult to get the wraps which are so crucial with popcorn. Not much skill on this one so I hope to luck out soon!

Anonymous said...

Another ridiculous level. I can't keep all of the licorice cleared. Boring! Not any fun at all.

Ann Marie Kleiber said...

I guess I got lucky, I used a coconut wheel and passed with 21 moves to go. :-O All the fruit fell.

Anonymous said...

Wow, without the advice here, I doubt I would have ever passed the level. Once I concentrated on just the lower popcorn (the one that releases the fruit), I didn't have any problems.

Bill. said...

Second attempt fruit fell ok bug must have been fixed. Blast the popcorn once that is done very straightforward.

Msgigi said...

I've been playing for a long time, I certainly enjoy levels that are a little more mind challenging, and don't mind even spending money for boosters, but games like this 991 which are just luck of the draw, if you're able to advance past it, I find so annoying. Must certain levels bring hard core players like myself to the point of being ready to give up totally? Developers, if you are listening, please make these type of levels a little more enjoyable and less frustrating

Anonymous said...

The previous levels were so good, please fix this level

Anonymous said...

Well after getting absolutely no-where with this level,came on here looking for tips. Thanks for the tip about ignoring the two top popcorns, that was a great help. Concentrated just on the lower one and may just have been lucky but completed it on that first go, without boosters either! Or is it just because I've been on here?? Seems to happen so often? Either way I don't care, its done. Good luck everyone

Anonymous said...

Avoid a headache and use a cinnamon roll option. Use it to blast away the popcorn and you'll win this level with many moves left over.

Jane said...

Just curious. What is a cinnamon roll?

c/candycrush here

What a pain of a level.

What did it for me: A colour ball/stripe combo. After the dust cleared I saw a cherry had been released.
I never did clear the other 2 popcorn, but I did get another colour ball/stripe combo.

Even with two of them, it wasn't easy to get the cherries through as you end up with empty or blocked squares near them.

If you're wondering if it is better to work the top or bottom, made no diff, neither worked well most of the time.
There's no relief till you get some combos
A colour ball booster may help.

Anonymous said...

I like the term "cinnamon roll" much better than coconut wheel. Thank you to whoever started calling it that. Tried using a booster last time but the placement of the cinnamon roll didn't help much. I'm having a hard time popping the popcorn! Not making much progress. Oh well... back at it...

Anonymous said...

Will someone please come sit at my computer and play this one for me? I don't like it. I can't get anywhere with it. And I don't want to play it anymore!!! (yes, I have felt this way before... this too shall pass)

Anonymous said...

HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can't even get close on this one.

Anonymous said...

So i turned a key into a striped with a color bomb/stripe combo. Figured it would unlock the fruit, but instead the key just disappeared and I never got another one. This level has way too many obstacles and apparently glitches to even be fun or beatable. Lost two good boosters for nothing...

Anon lafy said...

Just used a switch hand to get the last combo to break the popcorn. Hated this level.

Has anyone seen the clouds and got free boosters?

Anonymous said...

I don't seem to be doing anything else but try and get rid of the liquorice. Growing popcorn? Releasing fruit? No chance as I am too busy with the blasted liquorice. Not fun - at all. I'll go back to my word with Friends.

I never had much for my gold bars and first did not even know how to use them. But with this level I finally came to the place where my third ingredient was only 1 move away from disappearing. That's when I was soooo glad I still had gold bars and could buy 5 extra moves. I only needed one and then I was free of this very annoying level. Hiep hiep hoera! Grace from DU

Anonymous said...

JSN: I went after the bottom popcorn and the keys. when the popcorn fell, I was lucky and had nothing below it, and so all three cherries fell on top of the popcorn and one licorice. With three moves left, I took out the licorice and then detonated the popcorn. Fortunately, whatever glitch was causing things not to fall seems to have been fixed. It was unnecessary to take out the side popcorns as well. Unless I just got lucky.

I played this level once, then came here for help. I just absolutely hate popcorn and, as it turns out, I was totally wasting my time working on the top two once I had the keys out. After reading the comments I used one of the many coconut wheels I had saved. I am assuming that King has fixed the glitch that players back in June had to deal with. It took a while even with strategically placed wheels (and I got three of them!) to break that bottom popcorn. I had 11 moves left at that point and all three cherries dropped out one after the other. Luckily I had moves that got the licorice out of my way too. Thanks again for the tips guys. Happy Crushing!

Anonymous said...

I hate this level already after just a few attempts. The last few levels were fun so it had to change I suppose :(

Raylo said...

WOW!!!!! Believe me, this is NOT BRAGGING because I NEVER get this lucky, and it is LUCK! When it said HARD LEVEL, I about croaked. But obviously, I got an incredibly good board. Got it first try. Have no idea how though.

Barbc said...

Well after passing 980 thru 990 in basically a couple hours I came here for some tips after a couple failed tries on 991. Thank you tipsters, as I didn't know it's the center popcorn you have to hit to get the fruit to fall. I really have come to hate popcirn levels, but at least we onky have to worry about one of them on this level. Back I go after my lives rebuild to see if I can get this one. Also I just have to thank King once again for letting me pass automatically to 981 after passing 980. i hope that feature stays forever!!!

Barbc said...

Passed it first try after using the tip. Got lucky to get two succesive sprinkle/stripe combos that took out the bottom popcorn. A good tip to keep working the bottom to try to keep the licorice cleared. that opens up more candies to make specials with that are underneath the popcorn. Good luck all!

Dirk said...

I passed this level on the first try on PC. I used striped combos to work on the lower popcorn as recommended. Once it popped, a color bomb dropped to the bottom and all three cherries above it. When the color bomb was set off, all three cherries dropped at once.

Dirk said...

Spoke too soon, sort of. There is a glitch in the PC version. After all three cherries cleared, the board showed a check mark by the cherries on the left to show success, the game didn't pass me. After the board cleared to go to the next level, the pop-ups for the next level never appeared. The background was the only thing visible. After awhile, I reloaded the board. The map showed I had not completed this level, and 992 is still locked. I played it again, and of course this time I didn't even come close. I wonder if this is really a glitch and not intentional. There seems to have been a lot of glitches in the game for them to be purely accidental.

jocelym46 said...

I have been playing 991 for almost 2 weeks and am about to give up. And no is a not buying many boosters. I just watched the video and will try to clear the row below and above the cherries. Anyone have any other suggestions?

J Tucker said...

had one heck of a time on this level, finally decided to read the comments, then went back and got it with 3 stars on my next try. I only worked on the bottom/ center part of the board. I used one of my coconut wheels, and it appeared on board 3 times, I swiped it across board and it destroyed the bottom popcorn, and all 3 cherries came down lined up with a choc ball underneath them, and had 15 moves left, but only needed the one to bust the choc ball.

Suzie O said...

I don't think there is a glitch but rather that you have to make a match under the fruit dispenser in order to get it to fall. I was having the same problem... I was doing great and down to the last cherry but it never dropped and I thought I was being a victim of the glitch too. Then I just happened to make a match under the dispenser and the cherry dropped. Also, I only popped the middle popcorn, the others were not needed.
