Licorice-swirl

A one-layered licorice swirl

Licorice Swirl (A.K.A. Licorice Wheel, Liquorice Swirl, or simply Licorice) is a common blocker in any Fanon. It is the second type of blocker involving licorice, the first being Licorice Lock. The blocker looks like a swirl of black licorice and a dot of cream in the middle, taking up an entire square.

Properties

The licorice swirl is an invasive blocker, meaning no candies can be in the same square as the blocker, much like Icing or chocolate. Like most blockers, it can be disposed of through breaking the candy next to it.

The licorice swirl has several unique properties. It is one of the only blockers that can actually be clicked on and switched with candies. Getting three licorice swirl blockers in a row does not get rid of it though unlike candies.

Another strange, and quite possibly one the most annoying properties is that they are resistant to special candies and their combinations. If a striped candy hits a liquorice swirl, it will get rid of the blocker but won't get rid of any other candies beyond it. This can become a serious problem in later levels involving jelly or ingredients.

Many later levels use this blocker to increase difficulty due to their special candy resistance.

If you make a move which removes at least one liquorice swirl immediately, it's less likely to respawn in the following cascades. Otherwise, it may be raining into the board, greatly reducing effective moves.

Locked Licorice Swirls

CCR

Locked Licorice Swirl

Locked licorice swirl

In CCR, since level 759, the licorice swirls can be under the licorice locks. The locked licorice swirls require special candies to clear the licorice lock as well as locked chocolate. However, the locked licorice swirls are not resistant to special candies.

Candy Crush Super Saga

In Super Saga, locked swirls require special candies to be removed in locks. In double, they require 2 hits and they ARE resistant to special candies when you remove 1 layer of the lock.

T9CCS

Licorice swirls are seen under locks for the first time in Candy Castle, from level 97 onwards. They ARE resistant to special candies even under locks.

Licorice Swirls Under Marmalade

CCR

Since level 891 in CCR, the licorice swirls can be under the marmalade. The marmalade layer is similar to licorice lock that is not resistant to special candies. However, they can match candies adjecant to clear the marmalade as well as ones covering the regular and special candies.

T9CCS

Swirls under marmalade first appear in Candy Castle, level 103 and they ARE resistant to special candies.

Multilayered Licorice Swirls

WhiteLicorice

Double licorice swirl

CCR

RedLicorice

Triple licorice swirl

Since level 876, licorice swirls can appear to have two layers. Every layer is resistant to special candies. After breaking the white swirls, it leaves the black swirl layer.

And since level 1161, licorice swirls can also appear to have three layers. Clearing red licorice swirl layer will make it white.

T9CCS

In T9CCS, double licorice swirls are introduced in episode 51, from level 751 onwards. Triple licorice swirls are introduced in episode 57, from level 871 onwards. Quadruple swirls first appear in episode 64, in level 991. Quintuple swirls will certainly appear in the game, but it is unknown when they will be realeased. Sextuple swirls may also appear, but ONLY in events.
