Candy Crush Saga Level 1185

Hints and tips for level 1185 Candy Crush Saga
There are countdown bombs all around the board on the conveyor. Although you have 25 moves to clear the bombs don't leave them too long, they will be down to zero before you know it if you neglect them.
The thing that is very easy to forget about is the popcorn in the middle of the board. While you are concentrating on the bombs you may not see the popcorn until it's too late to grow it in to a colour bomb. You'll need to line up stripes from each side or stripe/wrap combos to get the popcorn.
Once the popcorn is gone use colour bombs or strip/wrap combos to clear the jelly it was hiding.

Can't get combinations to blow up the popcorn. I have cleared the sole rest of the board numerous times

Coughc said...

Same as above cant manage to clear the popcorn! Boring level!

Lisa said...

Gotta be kidding me. This level is insane. First time though I finished with 7 moves to go, then saw the POPCORN thing in the middle. Didn't even hit it once. Crazy enough of a level without that stupid thing in the middle...

Cleared the popcorn twice and that was not easy due to layout of board. But no luck clearing the double jelly under the popcorn.
Maybe get mobile update soon and have 6 hammers in phone.
So many ridiculous levels recently that I think I will quit if/when I get to 1200.

This is awful level. Thought I had cleared it then noticed the popcorn in middle which was impossible to hit.
Next attempt had two smarties and stripes together but neither of them hit the popcorn. Getting stripes to hit is near impossible.

same here impossible to hit that popcorn

Same as all above. Horrible level. Ended up using choc/ball stripe and stripe/wrap boosters and resetting until the choc ball was next to the stripe. After a few more tries, a stripe/wrap and hand switches set up the popcorn to go, but still needed to use a few hammers for the center space. If it weren't for the free boosters...

Much better luck to all.

It is impossible to hit the popcorn three times!!!
Pfffff........horrible!!

Anonymous said...

You shouldn't let king be aware that the free boosters are so useful in passing a board!!! If too many people say that they will make it much harder to earn free boosters!

Ignored the bombs and just tried to make combos. So hard to do, I always find myself chasing the bombs. Somehow got a couple wrap/stripe cleared most of the board (and bombs) finished on last move. Often I'll quit before the last move, glad I stuck it out

Anonymous said...

Been doing the resetting ever since the first time Cat hit on it way back when!! . With a level like this it's the only way to go- sprinkle and stripe/wrap where sprinkle is aligned with stripe- still some work to do but makes it at least Doable! Good Luck!!

Ok so.i tried this last night and yes didnt see popcorn first time either. Then it seemed impossible. Came here saw the comments. Gave up frustrated and slept on it. Decided to play ever so slow. Dropped wraps close to popcorn making sure I didn't move them. Finally broke popcorn but ran out of moves. Next game did same and used 2 hammers and a few swaps with one move left as I didnt want to chance it. Its a difficult game. .awful...so if I can get it after 2 tries today u can..try and hv some.boosters without them I wld still be at it. Go slow. Good luck

Hate the stupid popcorn which is at an impossible place. Cleared the board three times and did not hit the popcorn even twice. Another ridiculously boring level.

Same here stupid popcorn

Got this on my third try. Managed to get a stripe/wrap close to the popcorn so that when I set it off it hit the popcorn twice. Then got a stripe above conveyer belt under popcorn and use a lollipop hammer to set it off which cleared the popcorn. Then used the chocolate bomb to clear the colour of candy that had replaced popcorn. I had got one fish in a mystery candy which cleared my last three jellies.
Only used the one booster (lollipop) and finished with five moves left.
Good luck everyone.

Not too hard to clear the board, except for the popcorn in the middle. After several games getting down to that one square, I had a wrapped lodged next to an almost popped popcorn, but couldn't explode it in about 15 moves. With one move left, I decided I'd had enough, hit the wrap with a hammer which revealed and set off the sprinkle, then one more lollipop took out the last jelly.

Horrendous level. Not a good level to end the weekend and I'm never eating popcorn again 😀, however, will not give up!

anonymous37 said...

I agree with everyone else about the popcorn. Cleared the board several times but haven't managed to grow the popcorn all the way. :(

Mellani said...

Just passed this level 5 minutes ago with no booster, grew the popcorn with wraps, and just got lucky to have another color bomb to clear the double layer jelly in the middle. This after about 12 tries.
Good luck to all!

Unknown said...

I notice when Iooked up a level for help on this blogspot, I always seem to manage that level right after it. I have been in this level for ages, and now I looked it up again, and managed with 20 moves left, without any booster help!!!Ridicilous, also before I looked it up never cleared the popcorn. Anybody else has the same experience?

Brian said...

Looks like they're trying to get us to use up our hand-switch boosters with this one. I noticed that they are becoming very useful in these latest levels and I'm getting low on them. Will I buy more? doubtful.

Yea I officially suck, been stuck on this level for weeks and still not even close. Sigh

Marc Shapiro said...

Tough level ... need to position stripes better.

Get real King! It's not fair to give players so much agony :-@

I finally popped the popcorn and then realized I needed to aim for that unreachable area TWO MORE TIMES!!! Argh! Back at it....

CC needs to develop a new booster... a POPCORN POPPER! :)

2nd try - got lucky. No boosters, 1 hammer to get the last jelly. So it IS possible!

As stated above, HORRIBLE LEVEL! Board is easy to clear but Popcorn is impossible. Starting to seriously hate this game!

Anonymous said...

Clear the popcorn how, no stripes or wraps coming near it

Anonymous said...

Got the whole board cleared with 3 moves left and only then noticed there was a #^&* popcorn. Why do I even play this game when I HATE chocolates, bombs, popcorn, whirling dervishes, cakes, etc. etc. etc.

Anonymous said...

Amen! Me too, that is as far as i can take the aggravation. FIVE hard levels in this section. King is making us kill time until they can come up with more games. Why not put us out of our misery and end the whole thing at 1225. It would be the kind thing to do for all involved including king since they can't keep ahead without games like this.

Anonymous said...

Welll, as much as I hate to say it, this is it for me unless and until king does something to change this. I like a challenge but these games don't challenge me as much as frustrate me. A game isn't a game unless there's some level of enjoyment. Good luck to the rest of you.

I've got the popcorn popped a few times but can never get the jelly under cleared. Frustrated!

Baaaahahaha.......can't. Take. It. Anymore.

Omg!!!!!!!!!!! F offff cc king
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Stick this effing level where the sun don't shine. Keep ripping me off!!!!

Anon lafy said...

Thanks to anonymous of the 18th September - I changed tactics and concentrated on hitting the popcorn rather than chasing bombs. It worked and I only had one last candy to take out with a lollipop hammer. Not an easy level, but to be expected I suppose. I like challenges, anyway!

Anonymous said...

I come here for suggestions to beat the level not ranting. If you have come this far, you know some levels are HARD, GET OVER IT!!! I don't like to hear that you bought boosters, just tell me tricks to beat the level!SO does any body have any constructive suggestions?

Bill. said...

Need a chocolate bomb plus striped candy which is difficult to get to clear the popcorn. Then still difficult to clear the jelly. Took twenty attempts.

Anonymous said...

Tried at least 20 times on laptop, no joy, first attempt on phone and success! As above focus on the popcorn not the bombs.

Anonymous said...

Wow I was very lucky with this one and completed it the second time. Could clear the dreaded popcorn quickly and then the rest too. Thought I needed a hammer for the middle jelly but in the second last move that was also cleared. Just a lucky board I guess. Grace from DU

Cat said...

Hi all.

Cant seem to get to that damned popcorn!!

Arghhhhhh

What a waste of f****** time Candy Crush has become - level after impossible level Time to quit

Having a mystery egg turn into a 10 move bomb...on a level that full of bombs!!! That's just wrong.

Anonymous said...

First time posting. This is a great site. Agree with above, every time I go to blog and then go back to game it is a big help. Just cleared 1185 with no boosters. Thanks to all who post.

CRAZY CAKE said...

Yes! It's almost like they know I'm struggling so give me a better board! Glad it's not just me lol

Repeat after me....POPCORN SUCKS!

This level has everything bad in CC - bombs, 6 colors and popcorn!

For the idiot above who is complaining about people ranting and not getting advice...There IS NO advice - except to get lucky!

WHY is this level not categorised as HARD!

Deedle said...

I was getting a booster that scrambled the board for a couple of/few weeks...it cost 3 gold bars. But that option disappeared recently. It was s teaaly good booster,would have been a good one for this level. Want option back...I play on Android mostly...anyone else see/get that z)"scramble" option?

TJ said...

I am trying to stock up on hammers since you can use them on popcorn now but I don't know the best levels to get lots of candy. I usually do 281 and 666. Any other levels that get a lot of candy easy?

GC said...

Very, very difficult level. I've cleared the board too and got left with the popcorn. At one stage I could've used my hammers but oh yeah I realised I used all 7 hammers on the previous level, so I couldn't finish off the popcorn. I played a few more times, a couple with and the rest without boosters and this time I played slowly. I managed to clear the board and the popcorn had already been hit twice, so I knew I wouldn't need too many hammers, although I only had three from playing jumping candies levels. As the moves were running low I managed to line up a stripe to match three by using one of my handswitch. I couldn't see anymore matches so with only 3 moves left I used one of my hammers. Phew! I'm so glad to be out of this one.

Good luck everybody.

What is the highest level currently?

passed finally on my phone. just used the hammer for the jelly under popcorn. not fun

Anonymous said...

Just like everyone else, I was down to one jelly and then realized it was the popcorn. How could I possibly miss that?!? Still waiting for that lucky board...

Anonymous said...

Wow thought I had it and then I saw the popcorn 😢 Hopefully I get a good board soon 😉

The reason that this level sucks is that because of the location of the warps, it's literally impossible to line up striped candies (either vertically *OR* horizontally!!) on the conveyor belt in order to strategically set them off to get the popcorn in the middle. They warp right past the appropriate spot. In addition to this, any striped candies that could set off the popcorn directly above the popcorn can't be strategically dropped down to line up with it because of the 'empty spaces' surrounding the popcorn, which completely isolate the popcorn and refuse to allow candies above them to drop down, even when candies beneath them move.

Literally the only way to reach the popcorn is to just hope to God a stripe occurs WITHIN the area bordered by the conveyor belt and DIRECTLY CENTERED in those quadrants. It's ludicrous. It's obvious this level is designed just to chew up hammers--seriously, the level could be beaten easily if you had some stored up, 5 at the max. Fish don't go after the popcorn even though there's jelly underneath it so they're useless, and I'm on the desktop version of the game (I will never buy a smartphone), so I can never use ye olde 'just reset the game until you get a nice board' cheat. I'm at the mercy of the almighty algorithm.

I've completely cleared this board so many times without even managing to hit that freakin popcorn once it's disgusting. No matter how many times I set off sprinkle+striped combos, they NEVER are useful, and are lucky to even hit the popcorn once! Even if I DO manage to set off the popcorn, I still have to break the icing underneath it!

Horrible level design. Bluegh.
