Candy Crush Saga Level 1166

Hints and tips for level 1166 Candy Crush Saga
The hardest part of level 1166 can be growing the popcorn, but if you don't clear it you will not complete the level as there is jelly under it.
The frog will clear one of the upper squares completely once he is grown, but he will also grow the popcorn by one stage if placed beside it, something to remember if you are having trouble with it and the frog is grown.
Use colour bombs to grow the frog and you can use him 2 or 3 times to clear the top sections and grow the popcorn.
You need a bit of luck with the mystery candies too.

Tintin here. This one is nasty. In the end I got it with two choc balls together and using the frog twice. Not easy.

Been stuck on this one for several days. I keep thinking a lucky board will come along but so far, no luck! Getting the popcorn to grow is the hardest part. Hopefully I will get beyond this level eventually! Not finding this level much fun! :-(

Nasty level. Got down to one jelly left a couple of times before running out of moves. Wasted some free fish too which did not make any difference. Another tedious wait for that lucky board.

Got lucky and made a sprinkle early to fill the frog (I set it off just below the popcorn, because if it's above, you can't make a 3 match with it.) Then I got very lucky and had 2 sprinkles together, followed by another 2 sprinkles together. Couldn't figure out why I hadn't won then realized that I still had a jelly under the frog (I guess he protects it.) Fortunately he was primed, so I just slammed him one square over to finish. Only 1 star though.

Having trouble with this one too. The popcorn is annoying, even if you use the frog.

After reading the comments, figured I'd be stuck for awhile. Somehow I managed this one first try! Got a stripe with a colour bomb with lots of the colour lined up under the popcorn. One hit was all it took with 3 striped candies hitting it. No idea how the right side of jelly was cleared. Used vertical stripes to get the left side, and the frog to clear one of the last 2 jellies above where the popcorn was. Another stripe appeared below the last jelly, and it was done. I always think that the first board is the luckiest. 2 stars only but I'm glad to be moving on. Good luck everyone!

Read the tips after trying one game and I don't get how you use the frog again if you use him up top to clear a block?? I did it and you can't feed him any more candies so I guess I'll focus on the popcorn

Has anyone else noticed that on a candy drop that you have NEVER passed, you can no longer earn candy drops after the first time you play. Used to be able to collect candy drops until you successfully complete your current level and are able to move on. Bummer!

Wow! Nasty level. Lucked out with special candies, got a few good ones. Grew frog into a chocolate ball, then amazingly created one next to it. Last move hit chocolate balls together! Bam

Close candy crush a open again and you can collect sugar drops

I also noticed that you get sugar drops only on the first try now. But there is a little trick. If you close the app completely after every game it comes back with the sugar drops on the current level.

To Anonymous who asked how to fill up the frog when it's in one of the squares. The only way to do it is by switchiing a chocolate ball with the frog's color.

Haven't beat this level yet, but I came close a few times. Just waiting for the lucky board.

I'm having a hard time popping the corn on this one. Waiting for the elusive lucky board!

Last try, didn't even get close to matching colors for the frog. Rip off ! Then vertical stripes that went up the blank alley. Just plain frustrating!

This is not too bad. You'll get it if you stay focused. I disagree about putting the frog straight up. It makes it way to hard to clear the jelly. Put him to the side and he'll take out all 9 squares.
When are they going to stop putting out new levels for this? Oh and why do they tell us some levels are "hard"? I think after getting through 1000 s of levels we have a pretty good idea now about what's hard hehehe. Play on fellow candy crush addicts

Wow I was actually coming here to say it was a little harder that the last but fun level. Lots of ways to make combo's. I only used the frog for one of the top squares and then focused on wrap/strip combo.Oh and I had a chocolate ball strip that helped much but nothing for the popcorn.

I used switch hands twice to create a sprinkle/stripe and a vertical stripe and finished the level with a lollipop for the last candy. I had enough boosters thank goodness.

Very difficult to get the popcorn, needed a hand switch to get the last jelly, no real tips just need a lucky board.

Yes 10 sept, as soon as I have used up lives given by friends I close Candy Crush after each game and earn candy drops again. That keeps me going with tedious levels like this one. Grace from DU

Still on the same level. Come on King, throw me a good board.

DOUBLE UGH!!

Woohoo, another sh*tty level that will be impossible until CC decides you can pass. Not many moves to be made, once again this is getting to be very frustrating & boring that no matter how hard you try, it will not happen until the good board comes along. No skill, just dumb luck needed again :(

Old Lady said...

I swear I already beat this level a few games ago and now I'm back. So frustrating! Has this happened to anyone else?

I can't tell you how much I was struggling with this level on ipad... mystery eggs often chocolate or other blockers... like kicking you when you are down, lol. Then I tried on my phone and it was just as bad and I thought I would never get past this... then I had the idea to try on facebook and voila... passed on second try. Facebook is definitely easier.
