Candy Crush Saga Level 1290

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 1290 Candy Crush Saga without boosters.You will need to use the frog which is hiding in the chocolate, so first you need sideways stripes or stripe/wrap combos to release him from the chocolate so you can feed him.
The frog will be used to clear the jelly on the top left squares as you can't get to it any other way.
A colour bomb switched with the frog colour will grow him fastest, and a colour bomb/stripe combo will clear a fair amount of chocolate as long as there are enough candies the same colour as the stripe on the board.

Had a hard time growing the "Toad", elusive little fellow. 2nd try got a few chocolate balls to feed him. Last move he matured and off he went to destroy the jelly

First time the chocolate got me. Used a colour bomb/ stripe combo which did nothing. Second time I managed to free the frog with 2 stripe/wrap combos and then grow him enough to pop into the centre of the jelly, and it was done! Only one star but I'm just fine with that. Good luck everyone!

Not really a strategy because it all depends on the elusive lucky board, but switching two adjacent color bombs will clear all the top left jelly and much of the chocolate, and the rest of the candies were fairly easy to pick off. At candy crush the only thing left on the board, aside from some stray, irrelevant licorice, was the frog, still covered in chocolate.🐸

I was annoyed by this level after playing way too many times. Used a chocolate booster and then two hand switches right at the beginning to get two chocolate balls right next to each other which cleared the top left. After that I had enough moves to easily get rid of the rest without worrying about the frog. Happy to be past this.

I used a switch hand to match two sprinkles, which cleared the top jelly. The frog was in the way of getting to the last jelly, so I used a lollipop hammer on it. This was my fourth try - I got swamped by chocolate on the other tries. One star, but that's OK. I can't pass on any tips except to say 'take it slowly and watch every move.' Good luck!

I've passed twice but it wont let me progress to 1291! Comes up with the "you've got no more lives screen" then goes back to 1290 even though I still have lives. So annoying.

After many tries without boosters I relented and used a chocolate bomb and a fish booster. That did it. Glad to see the back of it.

Crashes for me when I click on the frog too!

I crash too when I activate the frog. I crashed at least 5 times today (and wasted some boosters) before I thought to check here for similar complaints. I enjoy this game immensely and hope a "fix" for this problem is in the works. Thank you.

Crashes on me too! Could have cleared it three times now. Glad I'm not the only one. Will the problem be fixed soon?

After many failed attempts with the frog, I got two chocolate sprinkles bombs together. That cleared the board.

I have the crashing problem too. I reloaded candy crush hoping to solve t, which lost me all my specials and it still did the same. Grr

Every time I used the frog the game shuts. I guess I have to give up.

I read online that the frog problem will be fixed in the next version, 1.80.0. I've been waiting for a few days since reading that!
