How to Beat Candy Crush Level 279 Help & Tips

Removing the layers of meringue is your main priority as well as challenge in this Candy Crush level 279. For doing so, use the coconut wheels booster for your good. You should not waste your jellyfish, even until the very last moves, as they are helpful to remove the leftover jelly on the board, along with even those corner candies, which are hard to reach. If you end up messing here, take the help of a colour bomb to remove the remaining jelly - though it will not be an easy way to beat level 279. Alternatively, you can even mix the striped candies with jellyfish to double the impact if you still see jelly around the board. Just focus your attention on the bombs and keep on crushing through the meringues; do not waste your jellyfish until the end you will win this level with ease. This level offers you great deal of 10-move bombs; hence keep an eye on them as well while trying to find a way through it.
