The Real Life Candy Crush


At first, I thought that it was a stupid game. It’s just another Bejeweled! Then, all it took was one bored-try-to-stay-awake TTC ride to trigger the download of the Candy Crush Saga app by games.

Since then, I’ve almost missed my bus stop multiple times because of a captivating game of creating candy combinations (match at least 3 of the same candies in a row), “clearing all the jelly” (match at least 3 of the same candies in “jelly” in a limited number of moves), and “moving fruit down to the bottom” (match at least 3 of the same candies to move the fruit from the top to the bottom of the grid).

Anyways, I was inspired to create version of real life Candy Crush. Ok, I’m a bit of a candy fanatic. One trip to Bulk Barn, and I got the following for $0.86 (except the Clorets):

  • Blue gum balls
  • Yellow cry baby sours
  • Orange jelly beans
  • Red Mike + Ikes
  • Purple Bunnies + Flowers
  • Green Clorets ($1.69 from Macs)

Start crushing some candy – you can find the app for Facebook, iPhone and Android phones.

    How about real life versions of Striped, Jelly Fish, and Packaged Candies? (I think it’s far more difficult to make a real-life Color Bomb.)

    Hello, I’m trying to create a real life Candy Crush. I have checked with Bulk Barn and they do not deliver to Singapore. Do you think you can do me a favor and help me to get some of these candies? You can calculate how much my order would cost and I can pay you via paypal before you place the order. Please pm me if you think we can work something out. Thanks!

    • chin, thanks for the message. this was definitely a fun (and tasty) exercise. i just sent you an email – take a look! btw, i’ll be interested to see another take on it – i’m sure there are other candies that would look just as good (ie. real fruit gummies for the purple flowers).

        Hi, I am also from Singapore and would like to have a packet of all this candy crush. Can you let me know the details about how to go about it. Thanks so much.

      • Wendy, I have the loose candy from this very Candy Crush that I can provide you a quote for shipping + fees if you want it. Other than that, I can’t source most of it anymore because some of the candies were available only during Easter time.

      • Wendy says:

        Hi, Thanks for your reply. May I know what are the candies that are not available and how much will it cost to ship to Singapore. You can email me the details at
