Candy Crush Saga Ingredients

How to move ingredients around in Candy Crush Saga

One of the tasks you have to complete in Candy Crush Saga is getting ingredients (Cherries and Nuts) down the board and out of the specified exits which are marked with a small green arrow.


In early levels of Candy Crush Saga this is fairly straightforward, just get them to the bottom of the board and out.
But as the levels in Candy Crush Saga get more difficult you will often have to move the ingredients sideways to get around an object or if the exits are not directly in line with the entry point of the ingredients.
There are several ways of moving the ingredients across in Candy Crush Saga, here are a few of them..

Sideways Line.

Here we can move the nut to the left by matching the reds.
Obviously you can move the nut to the right if the 2 red candies were on the left of the nut..

Sideways offset.
Here  we can move the cherry to the left by switching the blue candies.  As before a match to the right needs the blue candy at the opposite side.

Vertical line
We can move the cherry to the right to make a vertical line match with the green candies.
You can also have the two candies ABOVE the fruit and one beside if you imagine that the fruit was in the position that the blue candy is in the image it could be switched either way.
In the above image we could also move the cherry down to make a horizontal match if we needed to...

Downwards switch.
If we need to move the fruit down the board we can do this also using the same methods as for moving it sideways.
Moving ingredients in Candy Crush Saga is one of the most difficult things for some people but now that there is the booster wheel which gives us free boosters, you can use a free switch hand booster to move the ingredients one space to the side or bottom.

when playing on my laptop my friends send me lives and I may have several at one time when I start playing Candy Crush. When I click on it to get to the game I only see the 5 lives and not the additional that friends have sent. There are times I may have 10 additional lives but then are not credited to me. WHY ?

This is helpful except for the level I'm on where the ingredients are in the far right or far left column and need to get to the middle!

I don't understand how if you imagine the cherry is where the blue candy is, you could move it down but not sideways? " You can also have the two candies ABOVE the fruit and one beside if you imagine that the fruit was in the position that the blue candy is in the image it could be switched either way.

Or am I missing something

When you move the fruit all the way down, it moves over into another column instead of disappearing? Why. This is in reference to Lecel 95. What is best strategy?
