Candy Crush Saga Level 2497 Tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 2497 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
You have 26 moves to clear the jelly and complete level; 2497 Candy Crush Saga.
The jelly is hidden under the chocolate and blockers so this has to be cleared to get to the jelly.
Vertical stripes and stripe/wrap combos will start the job of clearing and growing the popcorns.
Look for special candies with every move, wrapped candies are best for growing the popcorns, especially if you can get them next to them. If you can grow 2 adjacent popcorns into colourbombs you can switch them together to help clear the chocolate. Once the chocolate is gone it won't come back so you can forget about it once you have cleared it.
There are very few moves to spare so you can't afford to waste any at all.
A jelly fish booster may be helpful on this level.
I used a lolly hammer to finish off the jelly in the following video but it is possible without boosters.

  1. Well I wish I could get a set-up like the video. I am finding this hard. I am lucky to get all the colour bombs exposed, let alone set them off. Finding it very hard to make wraps or even vertical stripes. I suppose it´s a case of waiting for that lucky board again!

  13. Lucky board needed level again. Posting for luck. If only I had a bit more boosters, I would achieve it faster.

  14. Tough level, hard to match up stripes/wraps. Used all the boosters i had, just going to have to wait until Wednesday for it to come up on Ipad because PC is very stingy with rewards and boosters. Wonder why they have the flying saucers up by the boosters, but you can never earn them?

  20. Jammer, dat er zulke levels tussen zitten. "Vechten tegen de bierkaai"
    Amsterdam needs help:-)

  21. Many games and often still have 24 out of 24 jellies at the end. Terrible :(

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wanneer wordt dit spel aangepast? Dit is op deze manier niet te doen!

    ReplyDelete
  23. En met dat ik het gepost krijg ik een extreem mazzelbord..

    ReplyDelete
  24. and here I thought the last few levels were better.... Closest I'Ve been is 11 jellies left!!! Often, 1-2 moves available, without any chance of making stripes or wraps... I know complaining won't get me anywhere, but posting for luck might... Will wait for Lucky board.

  25. Thought King got the message, as the last few levels had both challenge and fun in them. Then back to what has become their standard -boring as heck, and no way to win until King decides to bless you with the lucky board. Despise these levels. Use to love this game! Just about weaned myself off of it! My iPad only loads on Wednesdays, and my PC gets very few boosters. Watching time fly is more interesting - and fun!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I don't mean to brag, but I haven't used any boosters, and have gotten all the way down to 18 left!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Another tedious, boring and pointless level this is. Don't waste any boosters as it seems to be designed to take them all off you with impossible configurations. Just spend my five lives and wait for a lucky board on another day.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Poating for luck a second time. I've come close a couple of times (2-3 jellies left) AND I would have finished it IF I would have bought some moves which I won't. Waiting for the game to be available on PC in a couple of days - more boosters, magic helmet might be available, etc. Who knows .... maybe I'll get lucky then ...

    ReplyDelete
  29. Been struggling with this level for a few days now.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm convinced it can't be done....

    ReplyDelete
  31. Still waiting, after many many tries over the week, for that ducky board!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Came close but just not enough moves. I need a lucky board please.....

    ReplyDelete
  33. Wish there was a few more moves on this level. Posting for luck. I've been on it using my PC since last week, after finishing the last episode on mobile. I would have finish it if I would have bought some more moves but I dont want to spend money on a game I'm looosing interest in.

  34. Without reading other comments, I just cannot believe that this isn't categorized as a 'hard' level. It's one of the hardest levels I've been on in awhile. Playing on computer doesn't let me use hammer on popcorn, so I've wasted a few hammers. I've also had extra moves, 2 chocolate bombs side by side, everything... still haven't come close. Always have at least 5 more jellies to clear. Maybe when it comes out on mobile apps tomorrow it will be easier.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I noticed this morning, King has made this level easier! I'm moving on with 2 stars...hooray, done. :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I agree, this is one of the hardest levels ever. Mainly, because you dont realize at first, how hard and possibly "rigged" it is.

    Think about it, if there is always a youtube help video showing how to beat each level, yet every video has "unbelievably lucky" amounts of candy combinations coming down, that kind of completely contradicts what actually happens in the real levels. In this one, matches never come down so there is NOTHING you can do unless you purchase boosters, or play over and over hoping for a stroke of luck.

    I think the how to beat videos are made by the CCS creators, bc even having allthose boosters wouldnt control what comes down. I think they rig a lot of harder levels in a way where you are 'stuck" on them a while bc they are nearly impossible.....
    ***Then, out of the blue, one day you get a completely different and lucky set of candies coming down. Almost like it wouldnt come down until u were stuck on level for while.

    1. Couldn't have described it better. There are so few possibilities to make combinations, its no skill, no fun, just boring and making kind of aggressive when you never have luck (or have luck in the beginning but not at the end and still no chance to finish the level)

  37. Nasty ugly level 😣 Posting for luck

  38. As previoulsy said on one comment I put for this level, did it after a week of tries when was finally available on mobile. First try, helmet boosters with extra colour bomb and boosters given before starting. I was very tired of playing this level and I,m very glad to move on.

  41. Chocolate sprinkle/wrap combo making sure there are candies of same color as wrap above the popcorn. After that some stripes and using a lollipop to make a chocolate sprinkle combo from the popcorns. Finished with 13 moves left.

  42. As usual these days .. a stupid level : you're stucked until you've got the lucky lucky lucky board....

    More and more boring this game

    ReplyDelete
  43. After 3 long days, got the lucky board--2 stars, no boosters.

    ReplyDelete
  44. This one should be classified as hard. Getting no where!

    ReplyDelete
  45. All previous stages in ccs, all can be passed without using boosters, not even needing a helmet booast. Tested and proven.

    ReplyDelete
  46. At over 2000, i expect some difficulties in the stages. This one is hard, but it should be expected of.

  48. Horrible level. Waiting for lucky board.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I agrre that they keep it almost impossible to beat and then when you have tried like a hundred times they give you a board and you are like ' what just happened?' kind of thing. well i have done about 60x so far so bit of a way to play yet. good luck all!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Play CC for 2 years and there have been always nasty levels, but here I actually do not have any clue how to solve it. The "striped spenders" spend mainly stripes in the wrong direction, CB combos or other combos never hit it all and chocolate grows fast and in the end, even after many good combinations, there are too many jellies left,.... even with fishes and or all boosters no reasonable chance.... Apart from the fact that in the beginning too few combinations are possible. Should be at least a "hard level" and with 10 moves more it would be much more fun and less desperation

    1. Very strange..... After around 60-80 attempts, with and without boosters, never few than 18 jellies in the end I got the lucky board, no boosters, 3 moves left. Had many CBs and could usw them often with stripes

  51. On my Android phone, this one has just been re-classified as a "super-hard level". At least they've acknowledged that much, not that I'm any closer to completing it !

    ReplyDelete
  52. Just passed on Android, no boosters used. 2 stars. Honestly nothing special during my gameplay, just aim to make as many wrap combos. Iirc my last move was a wrap+stripe combo.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Posting for luck. I have no idea how many times I have played it but no luck. Lucky board please!

    ReplyDelete
  54. After two days of playing I got the perfect board. I had already tried the sprinkle/wrap combo (several times) as somebody suggested but it didn't work for me. This time I had a wrap sitting above the popcorn but two side by side sprinkles appeared from nowhere beside it. I hesitated for a second then decided the sprinkle/sprinkle option would be better. That left me with two more adjacent sprinkles but one went off on its own. Suddenly all the chocolate was gone. More sprinkles formed without my help and the board was cleared with ten moves left.

  55. struggling......not even close!

  56. Impossible level. The more I play the less I like the game anymore!

  57. No were near enough moves to pass this stupid level thanks CC for making me do something else worth while with my time.

  58. Ugh! Terrible level, posting for luck!

    ReplyDelete
  59. It is not posiable to finishing this level .
    Not enough moves is one thing, but then the jelly is a double layer. Not to mention the popcorn has to be hit 3 times , by then moves are all gone . Stupid .

    ReplyDelete
  60. Help been here for ever need a lucky board as I am getting bored with this !!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Yep, posting for luck once again. Not coming close. Ugh!! Tried some boosters, but not helping much!

  68. King make these levels frustrating so you spend money. These levels are just boring, boring and boring. They rake the fun out of playing a game you have been loyal to!😡

    ReplyDelete
  69. This is impossible, can't even get close on my pc or phone. On my phone it's listed as a "Super Hard Level" cause the "Hard Levels" just weren't hard enough I guess! If only we all got boards like Candy!!!
