Candy Crush Level 101 Tips & Strategy: How I Beat This Level?

You’ve arrived at the challenging Candy Crush level 101. Very nice work! As you and I have done time and time again, it’s time to collect more ingredients.

Bombs and meringues are going to be your biggest obstacles here. I know it looks like all of those time bombs will be impossible to clear while also making sure you collect all six ingredients in the small amount of moves you’re given, but hang in there. It can certainly be done, and this level is only as difficult as you make it on yourself. Follow my Candy Crush hints to make your task a little easier.

  • Objective: Bring down all ingredients and score 70,000 points
  • Moves: 30
  • Stars: 1 star = 70,000, 2 stars = 100,000, 3 stars = 150,000

Tip #1


There will be a large collection of bombs to start this level. Your first priority should be to deal with these. Look for any bombs that share a color. You can combine these with a candy or even another bomb of the same color to diffuse them. These bombs only have a 9-turn counter and must be dealt with quickly if you have any hope of achieving victory.

After the bombs are removed, it is important to remove the meringue blocking the collection zone. If you can remove a piece of meringue and position a horizontally striped candy in the space then you can remove the entire layer in one shot. Similarly, a wrapped candy combined with a striped candy can do the trick from the row above the meringue. You can even collect an ingredient on the board if you position this correctly!

Tip #3

Timed bombs will drop in throughout the level. Be sure to keep an eye on them and eliminate them as quickly as possible. However, don’t worry about the bombs if you have 9 or fewer moves remaining. It’s okay to have a bomb left on the map if you manage to collect all of the ingredients.

Tip #4


Once you get the hang of dealing with the bombs and have removed the meringue, your only obstacle is the point requirement. Look for special combinations that will net you big points and collect the ingredients early on. A big sugar crush will do wonders to earn you the required score. Of course, every bomb is worth 3,000 points. They will play a huge role, too.

By now you should be an expert bomb diffuser. That’s good, you’ll need this skill in the upcoming Candy Crush level 102, and coming levels after that. I’ll see you on the next map!
