When will I see it?
The Magic Mixer first appears on level 1326 and looks like a blender containing sweet candy ingredients.
What does it do?
After a set number of turns, the Magic Mixer will deliver a blocker on squares immediately surrounding it. But the Magic Mixer keeps on mixing as you play, so it will continue to generate extra items and take up spaces on your board.
Later in the game, you'll also find 'Locked' Magic Mixers, which will only begin spawning items when the lock breaks.
Items created by the Magic Mixer can include:
- Regular Icing
- Multilayered Icing
- Layered Chocolate
- Candy Bombs
- Licorice Locks
- Licorice Swirls
- Dark Chocolate
How do I get rid of it?
You can destroy a Magic Mixer by matching adjacent candies or by blasting the mixer with a special candy, like the Striped or Wrapped candy. You'll need to attack the mixer multiple times for it to break down and disappear. Keep a close eye on those corner screws to see how close to breaking it is!
Did you notice that the Magic Mixer loses a screw each time you match next to it? Every time you break the mixer down by matching adjacent candies OR damaging it with a striped/wrapped blast, a screw drops out from the corner of the mixer. Lose all four screws and the mixer is defeated!
Sometimes levels RELY on the Magic Mixers. You might be tasked to collect items generated by the mixer.
Be sure not to destroy the Magic Mixer too soon in these cases, or you won't be able to complete the level!
