There are 2 ways to approach this level. If you have matches with the mystery eggs on the outside, match them up to see what comes up. If you get some good powerups, you can start matching right there, if not, then you are going to have to bust through the 2 hit blocks to allow you to match up some candies to put together the orders.

Patricia Frederick’s Tips for Candy Crush Level 257

Take a chance with the mystery candies to see what you already have before wasting moves by breaking a lot of the blocks. (Any combos you make will help break the blocks anyway…)

    This level is a complete joke. As fast as you complete one order it wipes out all your other combo candies and ‘easter eggs’. Bombs turning up in the outside columns where you haven’t a hope of defusing them. Same with chocolate covering any candies that you have uncovered. You can’t control choc and make combos at the same time!
    You have absolutely no hope of making those orders unless you uncover the components from the eggs. Usually about ten moves in you can see that you have no chance of succeeding. I am reduced to just quitting and start again.
    This is no fun at all. I’ll give it a couple of days then I’m uninstalling.
    Seriously – where’s the fun in this?

      Level 257 not registering my matches. Getting ready to quit the game.


        Try turning your device off and back on again as sometimes our games do not sync properly, so a reboot could help the situation.

    I was stuck at this level for 5 days! Then thought I’ll just try any combo, and viola it works!!! You can match the colour bomb with any stripe and it gets a tick, also the two striped candies don’t hv to be blue,for it to count, just do the two as asked for, I passed the level also the wrapped/candy combo only counted with the blue though


      Wow, how frustrating! But well done for getting there in the end and thanks for some helpful tips – keep them coming :) Good Luck!

    Should have already beat this level yet nothing is being recorded? How do you pass it when nothing is registering?


      There’s a lot of technical faults going on with the game atm, but hopefully it will be sorted soon! In the mean time, here’s the link to King

    Made matches and I wasn’t given credit for them!

    I had the same buggy experience on my mobile but when I switched to the pc, I notice that I had to get 2X each combo (except the color ball), which I hadn’t either seen or understood on my mobile. So, in fact, maybe they were being counted but It didn’t show as my combos being checked off until I got both of the required ones (5 combos in total). When I realized how many I had, I was able to do it quite quickly. Controlling the chocolate was they key.

    Okay! Did it again on 257 …

  9. KAREN Henry

    Two problems: posted message earlier that completed solid and striped are not acknowledges as completed on 256 and 257! Two striped not working on 257, my first message isn’t showing up! Strange …


      Maybe there were some technical glitches on this level, hopefully that have been rectified now. You could try dropping a comment to King

  10. Karen Henry

    Solid and striped candies cleared … Not acknowledged as completed!


      Well done!

    I’m having the issues with the striped candy combos not counting. the only ones that to work are the blue ones. I emailed the address that was posted here .. and got a canned response.

  12. Joni

    I didn’t have any issue. Finished it after three tries.


      Good to know that Joni! Keep Crushing!!

    Thanks for the heads up on the bug. I really thought I was crazy. Going to report it now, although I am sure it wont do any good.


      don’t say that.. their policy is changing.. recently they are working on gamers’ complaints!!!

      • Edithanne

        Really glad to hear that, it’s a great game that could be improved with some attention to complaints. Thank you!!!


          At least this is what we get since the previous update.. hope are notice is correct!!
