Coloring candy is one of the special candies in Candy Crush Jelly Saga. It is brought from Candy Crush Soda Saga. It is the most powerful special candy in the game and it is the most difficult to create. Unlike color bombs, coloring candies have color to them. Thus, they take a color of the candies that were used to make them.

A coloring candy is one of two new combinations that were added by the game developer and is not available on Candy Crush Saga.


Like in Candy Crush Soda Saga, a coloring candy is created when 6 or more candies (including special candies) of the same color form a straight line of 5 with, at least, one candy adjacent to the middle (3rd) candy in the line. When formed, 280 points are given to the player.


Matching a coloring candy with, at least, two candies of the same color will activate it. The coloring candy will burst and then spew out its coloring bubbles on all candies (including special candies) of another color that is dominant on the board, thereby coloring them into its color.

If the matching combination warrants a special candy, a respective special candy will be created as well. If the matching candies are locked in liquorice locks, the locked candies will get unlocked but not destroyed.

In addition, coloring candies can be activated when swapped with a regular candy. Therefore, similar to color bombs, their mobility is limited. It is not possible to move a coloring candy on the board without activating it.

However, if a coloring candy is swapped with a regular candy which is the same color as other coloring candies, it won't change the color of coloring candies.

  • Like color bomb, if coloring candy is activated inside jelly cube or cotton cloud, it maybe will be kept again.
  • When you combine coloring candy with a special candy (candy fish, striped candy, wrapped candy, coloring candy) which regular candies are inside blockers (liquorice lock, jelly cube, cotton cloud), special candies may be activated without completing combination.
