How to Beat Candy Crush Level 173 Help & Tips

These useful tips and tricks are answer for players who are looking for help for stage 173 of the Candy Crush game. The biggest hint to solve this one is colour bomb + striped candy. Focus on creating this combo, around 20, one after another and just set the candies off. To finish, create greater amount of striped candies. Nevertheless, before you could use this combination, ensure that there are adequate number of candies with same colour like the striped candy. If you find there are just 15 of such candies, allow more candies to cascade. Better yet, just produce striped candies in different colours. Striped candies will go through meringues to defuse the candy bombs, so do not worry about them. As well, the goal of this level is not clearing meringues; hence try not to waste moves removing it at all. Also, do not expect the 20 move bombs would be favoring you. Just go for creating striped candies combo and it will take care of the rest of level 173 of Candy Crush game for you.
