Candy Crush Saga Level 1697

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 1697 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Level 1697 has two goals, clear the jelly and collect 4 ingredients.
There is only one exit, in the middle between the two teleports and the ingredients will go straight down once the way is cleared.
The most important thing you need to be careful of is keeping the ingredients in the middle column. If you move the ingredients out of the column it is very difficult to get them back again in the moves allowed. You can use a hand switch if you have one when the ingredient gets to the bottom of the conveyor where the exit is, but if you can keep them in the correct column there is no need to move them, just clear the way for them to get out of the exit.
The other big problem is the bombs.. Once they get onto the conveyor they can be a real problem to remove, so take care that whenever you get a chance to destroy one you should take it... You may not get another.
Everything gets a lot easier once some of the blockers are cleared as you will have plenty of space to make powerful combos which will keep the bombs under control as well as clearing jelly.

Thought this was going to be almost impossible so used a number of boosters to beat it. Then when I played it again for the suger drops I beat it with 17 moves to spare.

It's all very well to say "don't move the ingredients," but if you destroy blockers below and to the right or left, the ingredients will move into those cells, and you're hosed. You need lots of vertical stripes right in that column. Much easier said than done.

First try my fruit kept moving out of line. Second try I was much more careful and I'm sure I had a lucky board but managed to keep them straight and when I cleared the last blocker they all fell! As mentioned above though, not easy when they move out of position so having a couple of hand switches will take care of that

Came here to read first and then got it on my first try. Got the cherries down first, then matched a colour bomb with a wrap and that cleared the board. Finished with 3 stars and 6 moves left. Great tips. Thanks! Good luck everyone!

So glad I read the comments on here first. Kept all the fruit in the centre and managed to get lucky with chocolate sprinkles and stripes and cleared the board.

Posting for luck. Am I the only person having trouble with the bombs? They get me long before I can worry about anything else. If they drop to the bottom you are screwed most of the time. Usually no way to take them out. This is not a fun level.

The real worry is not keeping the cherries in line but taking care of the bombs which have to cleared in 8 moves. My 8 of the 10 games were abandoned only because of explosion of bombs inspite of keeping eye over them every time they appeared.

Hi, Tchaik here. Getting really brassed off with this one. Near the start of each game, there are frequently "no more moves" forcing a shuffle, and then "no more moves, end the game" situations. Since I have boosters to get me out of that situation, I actually resent the programming which leads to it. Waste of time all round.

Well I'm glad you all are at least getting to make moves! Game keeps ending after only a few moves due to no more moves possible. Just had it end after ONE MOVE!!! So frustrating!

First try (and I NEVER do that)! Focused on clearing the top enough to be able to get the lower middle cleared to get the fruit out. Then focused on the side edges and finished with 3 stars. Wrap/wrap combos helped with the middle bottom.

Got all but one fruit out cause when it fell down, it jumped to the left on the conveyer belt!!! I don't want the frustration of another mundane, week long level! So if I don't get past this one soon, I quit cc.
