Candy Crush Saga level 1691

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 1691 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Apart from the cream blockers which are on the board you also have to collect 20 licorice and 10 chocolate, which are not on the board.
In order to get the licorice you have to unlock at least one or two of the Evil Spawners so that they can spawn the licorice for you. For the chocolate you will need at least one of the chocolate machines to be unlocked.
You can destroy one or two of the spawners, but be careful not to destroy too many or you won't get enough licorice as they only spawn every three moves. 
Remember chocolate will only appear if you don't hit any for a move and also the spawners will not produce licorice if you hit them.

Glitch on the iPad perhaps? Evil spawners cover blockers with springs so you can never get enough.

I have the same problem. Got all the chocolate and licorice but ended up needing 20 blockers and none in sight. These games have sure gone downhill. Don't know how much more I can tolerate. More frustration than fun.

Between the glitches and the board freezes upon completion of games king has taken all enjoyment out of playing. They need to shut down this game if they no longer know how to make it run like it should.

On my Android requires 60 blockers, 10 chocolates and 20 licorice. How to get 69 blockers?

Reenie said...

The blockers are on the board? Nope. Can't be done. Now what?

not enough blockers on the board on Iphone, frustating

Anonymous said...

Ughh. Another iPhone bug. Cmon King...! It's beyond annoying.

After repeated tries and watching the above... When the licorice spawns and cover the blockers, the eliminated blockers are counted. On my phone they are not counted, just eliminated.

SharonH said...

Couldn't figure this out the first dozen times, so came to this blog and see I am having the same problem with the blockers. Can get the chocolate and licorice, but no blockers anywhere after the initial 20+. So I guess we sit and wait for the fix??????There goes our free hours!

Test said...

Not enough blockers on android..??

Reenie said...

How do you get rid of blockers before licorice takes them over? Seems impossible.

Sarah Clement said...

Ok I'm not alone. HELP please fix this. That's two problems in one set.

Same here, not enough blockers

After playing on my iPad and iPhone with no luck, I played on my MacBook , and to my surprise won the game on 1st try, if you have one play the game there!!

Anonymous said...

Agree with all of above. Blockers are not on board on iPad . Collected everything else and came up short

Anonymous said...

Got through it on the first try....they need to make these levels more difficult.

I had the same problems everyone had when using my Kindle Fire (ie not enough blockers), but used a desktop computer and got it on the second try. Good luck!

I am playing on Ipad & for the last three ' chapters ' my ipad just keeps shutting down when you pass a level or collect prizes !! Im getting fedup with these glitches too , also fedup with the games differing on mobiles & pc's ...get it sorted CC & no way can i get 60 blockers on this level as their not there to begin with !! 😤

Lin5ster said...

Just managed it on IPad. I used a mystery bonus and it changed into cream so did it in five goes. Gave me enough to finish it.

Anonymous said...

I play on an Android. There are 60 blockers on The board, but even if I destroy them all The game sais it's like 25 blockers left...strange...

Anonymous said...

Definitively a bug with the blockers on Android too.

Anonymous said...

No bug, I did it. You have to get rid of some of the spawners to keep them from making licorice. Then it works.

Anonymous said...

Anyone notice in thw video, when the evil spawner threw out a licorice in place of the frostings, that it took that number of frostings away from the rest needed? It doesn't do that on my Android device?????????

I smell a screw up!!!

Ultramum said...

Impossible on android

CC from vero 😎 said...

Thx lin5ster! I tried my free tick mark hoping I could overcome shortfall but it didn't work. After reading your comment I tried some more and between the tick booster and the board mystery candies which I carefully managed I finally beat it!

I have the same problem with games freezing on ipad; sometimes as frequently as every other
game. Crazy how this game has been around for years and there are still such basic problems. C'mon king, you're devolving.

SharonH said...

Per an email to KING, they told me that each blocker has 3 levels, so 20 blockers x 3 levels = 60...It is not that easy, as they are often taken over by licorice and chocolate. And the person who beat it the first time, I say SURE YOU DID!

Using IPhone, I cleared all of the chocolate, licorice and blockers plus one mystery candy turned into a blocker and it still showed I need 15 more blockers, so there's definitely a glitch for 3 hit blockers not to be counted correctly.

anonymous37 said...


I just used the tick mark and was able to pass, though I had to get 5 extra moves (used gold bars from sugar drops) to get the last 4 licorice. A few ticks turned into blockers and I wss surprised as I was nearing the end that I had all the blockers and not enough licorice. All I can think of is that the ticks that turned into blockers counted more than the blockers that were on the board to start.

Huntinup said...

Same deal as everyone else not getting enough blockers to complete level and to add insult to injury King just took my unlimited lives What's up with that cmon King your better than that

Anonymous said...

The main problem with blockers is that spawners turn them into licorice so you need to find a balance between destroying spawners (to collect blockers) and to leave still enough of them to make enough licorice. Of course you need to play with tick booster to help a bit.

Anonymous said...

No glitch on iPad. You just have to be careful not to open the evil spawners too early. Did it with just one lollipop hammer on last licorice.

Gary Moss said...

I'm with you I've cleared the board several times and can't win because I have no blockers available

Anonymous said...

I have the 20 blockers which if hit three times each makes the 60, but even when they are all gone all 60 were not counted and it seems I need anywhere from 19 to 27 more???

Anonymous said...

Android user - finally pass the game with an extremely lucky board but still require 5 more move to complete (free gold bars from sugar drops)- just needed one more chocolate.
After trying half a dozen times, finally figure out it is best not to use booster from the beginning of the game. Initially, I thought by using Colour bomb and wrapped candy combo or Colour bomb with stripes will create a massive disruption but it actually cause a lot of trouble since once you open up the evil spawners, it spread like a "disease" and eats up the blocker. So what I did was try to destroy the blocks as much as possible and try not to open the evil spawners until really necessary. The hint is try to destroy the block as much as possible and as soon as the evil spawners is open destroy both the evil spawners and blocks at the same time - you do have to leave about 2 - 3 evil spawners so that it create enough licorice for the game. I was very lucky that 2 of my mystery candies does turn into blocks (so that's equivalent to 6 blocks).

Anonymous above 11 May 20:05 and 12 May 00:29 are right, you have to be very careful. I've just passed on iPad without any boosters but I did need to use three hammers on the final 3 liquorices. It isn't easy and you do need luck with the mystery candies, turning into blocks. In my many first attempts I went for explosions with combinations but that doesn't actually work, seems to destroy blocks with each counted as a single and not a triple, at least that is what seemed to happen when I was observing. So, eat away at the blocks until the spawners are released and then attack. Good luck.

Problem seems to be fixed on my iPad this morning. The evil spawners are gone and all the licorice and blocks are on the board.

Reenie said...

Fixed on iphone

This level has changed overnight on my android. Now there are no spawners and it's relatively easy - the required liquorice and blockers are on the board, as you clear them the required chocolates more or less collect themselves. Thanks King for updating.

Deano said...

Update candy crush. Easy level. No spawners.

Anonymous said...

Not that easy as there are only 25 moves on Android. You need a lot of heavy duty combos to clear enough blocks. I resorted to some boosters in the end as it was becoming tedious.

Not for the first tome, I've had Treasure Chests dangled in front of me, only for them to disappear off the board suddenly, even though there had been many hours left on the timer. Anyone else getting this?

B.K.Arora said...

How to update?. I am stuck up on this level since many days.

The evil spawners spawn the liquorice upward so break the blockers above the evil spawners before unlocking them. Finally got through on pc. No on my android the spawners are very much there even after the latest update.

Basant Pandey said...

first finish the blockers above the evil spawners. then unlockthe evil spawners.

Anonymous said...

No more evil spawners on android! If you still have spawners, update immediately or play on another device. However with only 25 moves you need to do some serious damage with specials, combos, and cascades. Good luck!

I find cany order levels with chocolate reuireed to finish the level diifficult especially when you have very little moves to do so

Anonymous said...

All chocolate and licorice completed. Not enough blockers to get and have 10 moves left. Smh.

I played it on my Chromebook. Got it easily first try and no boosters. Pretty fun.... Did they fix it? No problems here.

Bill. said...

Real Bill here. Focus on opening choc spawners asap then work on making combos. Gl

Still a problem on my IPad and after checking here and finding out others were not getting enough blockers, I played on laptop and passed it with no problems.

Debbie B said...

Wow. No wonder Cookie can do it- when one of her spawners changes a meringue to a licorice, she gets credit for the lost meringues!!! When it happens to me, I don't! That means if I have a single meringue turned to licorice it's all over. Yes, I know I can occasionally get a random bonus meringue, but certainly not enough to make up for those lost to licorice. I'm getting sick of King not having the levels play the same across platforms. I emailed them about it, and their reply was that they "try to make sure players get the most out of the game on each platform". In other words, if you're not playing on a PC, they rig it to try to get you to pay money for boosters!! I bet they are working into PCs and getting info of some sort, and that's why they let PC players have better angles in so many levels. There is no reason why levels should differ between platforms. Getting tired of King.😡

Casey Leleux said...

What kind of fresh hell is this level???

Catgirl said...

I play on iPhone and am still stuck on previous level 1690. Must be do-able as you're all here, but reading your comments I'm off now to finally delete CC for good. Woo hoo hello life ❤️

anonymous said...

Even using magic tick this level is impossible to complete. The tick was giving me popcorn or chocolate when I needed solid bricks. So it would appear that there is no point in continuing as even paying for extra goes wouldn't give me any more bricks! Well done king for killing the game!

sprocket2 said...

Yikes! To anyone playing this on mobile devices: if you haven't updated the software, do so. I played on my iPhone last night and this morning and came here to see if my problem (the blockers getting turned into licorice as soon as a vertical stripe accidentally unlocks one of the buggers and thus losing you any opportunity to collect 60 blockers) was universal or not. After reading all of the comments I decided to try on my PC. What?? just like Ms Cookies game. No evil spawners! But still not easy with 25 moves. As I have no extra lives on my PC and no boosters I went back to the phone after playing my 5 lives. Then it occurred to me that it's Weds. I did the update and the spawners were gone. Yay! Still took a couple of tries and I did use a color bomb booster but it's SO much easier without the spawners. Kudos to those of you who managed it on your mobile devices before the update. You're a better man than I am.

Ummm....playing on iPad. I don't have any evil spawn ears...?

Anonymous said...

Need a little help here. Trying without boosters but nearly impossible.

LynnR said...

The android version has major glitches so don't even try there unless King fixes it. There is just no way to get the required blockers even with boosters. However, on the PC I was able to pass it after a few tries because the required number of blockers is actually on the board.

Yvonne said...

King fix this. Doesn't give enough blockers. Doesn't count all I destroy. If you can't beat us without cheating us then it's not fun. What a crock of s##t. Not happy.

Anonymous said...

No spawners and only 25 moves. I just lurv how these levels change every five minutes (not!) Where are you Ms Cookie? Hiding??

Anonymous said...

Only 25 moves. As I said before: King is going CRAZY. Please make the game the same for everyone.

Lynn in Texas said...

I play on a laptop and had no luck. Again got the lucky board, was out of boosters from the last nightmare level.. 1% skill and luck. Wait till the next level.. it's mind numbing, sure I will be on it until the next lucky board. I see another timed level coming up. Yippy! Not!
