Candy Crush Saga Level 1690

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 1690 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Level 1690 is another multi task level. You have to clear the jelly as well as collect the ingredients.
Collecting the ingredients is not usually the hard part of this level, clearing the blocker and jelly in the bottom right corner seems to be the hardest thing to do. For this reason you should take any chance you get to hit this blocker , either by making matches next to it, or hitting with a combo.
Forget about the ingredients and work on clearing blockers and jelly and you will probably find the ingredients will find their way to the exits without too much help from you.
Work in the bottom of the board when possible to take advantage of any cascades made buy the candies filling in after moves.

I've cleared all the jelly twice but both times the cherries didn't come out until too late to get them to exit, even with boosters. It's interesting that for you, the cherries took care of themselves. For me, just the opposite. I've been on this level a couple of days. Once, by mistake, I even hit the gold bars and used up my ability to buy more moves.

So far I've tried buying boosters (fish, sprinkles bomb and on two occasions bought the switch-hand booster to speed things along. Alas, this is one of those miserable levels for me.

Maybe I had a lucky board, but I used a fish booster to hit the corners and cleared the blockers as quickly as possible. This was a fun level.

You have a typo... It's 'by' not 'buy'

I have cleared the level which is even shown on the game with a star but it does not take me to the next level which is blocked by the booster chest. Neither the chest opens nor it takes me to the next level.

After playing many many games and not getting even remotely close, figured out there is an extra color on ipad which makes a hard level near impossible. Think I need to take a breather from this ridiculousness.

Impossible on IPad!

Got super lucky cause I beat on mobile on my 2nd try! Actually, for me it's easier to get the ingredients before I cleared the jelly. In fact I was able to beat this level without any boosters. I didn't have to use a lollipop hammer at all. Good luck!

On iPad indeed five colors instead of four.
So installed the update from the 2nd of May and lo and behold.... 4 colors appeared.
Also cherries changed. Before update you start with one cherry and the second appears at move 25, the third at move 20.
Being in the way to remove the blocks.
After update they appear one after another after removing the first cherry, but this also gives problems because it takes longer to get them down.
Almost finished level the first time after the update, but now, a day later still no luck.
Haven't got enough lolliop hammers left to finish it :-(
Will keep trying.
Greetings, Y.
Ps: third try to leave comment or maybe fourth. Rather frustrating since answer disappears every time. Maybe verification didn't work?

Can't get ingredients or enough jelly on iPhone. Impossible to clear the bottom row! Have tried using all boosters but mKes little to no difference as the board is so closed at the beginning, so boosters get wasted.

I've come to the conclusion that this level is impossible on iPhone... Played a gazillion times, used millions of saved boosters and not even close!

My daughter accidentally deleted candy crush off my phone at level 1690. How do you think I feel? Awesome! Can't tell you how good it feels be free of the CC addiction.

Catgirl said...

You know if you reinstall it that it will take you right back to level 1690! Just saying :). Can your daughter delete mine now please though...

I read the comments and used a fish booster on my first try which I don't usually do. I'm lucky because by the time I got here there were only 4 colors so it was pretty easy to make combos. I had a couple of color bombs just form themselves and got them next to stripes so I was able to most of the jelly out without much trouble. The cherry dropped down and out on it's own while I was clearing jelly. After that I just had a few jellies left on the top of the left portion of the board and was able to position a stripe/wrap combo across from them in the right hand section and was done with moves to spare. Thanks to everyone (including Ms Cookie) for the helpful tips.

You have a typo. It is "by" not "buy". That is the correct manner in which to denote a quote.

I was finding this level almost impossible on my kindle fire, way too many layers of icing to let the cherries drop. So I switched to my desk top. The cherries don't come down as fast, but the icing is so much easier to clear out! Finished on my second try with a fish booster (that only appeared once, so not a huge amount of help! )

Fun level. Completed with 10 moves to spare. Wrapped/stripe and Sprinkle/striped combinations made easy work of it.
