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.
