Candy Crush Level 242Target
Bring the ingredients down (2 acorns, 2 cherries) and score 40,000 points in 50 moves.

1 star: 40000 points
2 stars: 70000 points
3 stars: 90000 points

The ingredients are along the first and last columns and will need to be moved in to be able to drop down. It is essential to swap them out before they pile up because once they do, it will be a lot harder to move them out. Once you move them in, it is relatively smooth sailing. With any kind of luck the mystery eggs contain something that can help you move them. Try to hop on that as soon as possible, that is the only real hiccup to this level.

Patricia Frederick’s Tips for Candy Crush Level 242

Moving the ingredients is the trickiest part of this level. Once they’re in the exit columns, use vertically striped candy matches to propel them out.

    What I found to work for me is to regard the board as a whole, and to stop trying to move individual pieces of fruit. I went for the big moves, regardless of where the fruit was positioned–set up wrapped + striped, and color bombs + striped, and tried to clear the board in four or five big moves.

    This took about 5 game boards, and it worked. Just sayin’.


      Thanks for the tip and sharing :D

    Level 242, 15 moves left, no sign of last ingredient !!!!!


      This is a technical glitch Gill. Unfortunately you will have to start this level again. But first, turn your device off and on again to reboot your system and help prevent this glitch from returning

    Pure luck!!! Was ready to quit!!! Got a choco-ball next to my striped candy and took out my 3 remaining candies!!! Shocked and amazed!!! They always get stuck in a corner and its impossible to get unstuck!!! The eggs don’t help me much either, it’s too early when they all go off and don’t have the fruit on board yet. It’s later on you need it. Somehow it got it tho with the choc ball and stripe combo with under 10 moves left!

      I meant FRUIT, 3 remaining fruit! PURE LUCK on this level


      The important thing here is that you did it!! Keep crushing!!!

    I’m playing on an Ipad and have the same issue, the last ingredient doesn’t come down till there are only two moves left. Like it’s waiting to clear the others.

    Also, I do get an ingredient in the middle row, contrary to your initial strategy remarks….

      Just won on my ipad. Some games didn’t send the ingredients down quickly while others did. Didn’t seem to be determined by how many ingredients were on the board.
