If you can focus on just one side on this level, that will save you a lot of effort. You’ll be limited on moves, and the game may force you to play both sides, but when you get the opportunity, keep it on either the right or the left.
The best strategy is to remove the meringues at the bottom first, without touching the meringue underneath the dispenser. When you have the path underneath the dispenser clear, remove the block underneath the dispenser and all three nuts will come out on top of each other.
If you don’t get a chance to play it that way, try to save any colour bombs until you can combine them with striped candy, and keep a close eye on the bombs that come out of the dispenser in the meantime. The last thing you want to do is get stuck in a series of ‘hopeless moves’ up the top, so try to force stalemate whenever you can’t make a move into the meringues.
In Candy Crush level 264 eliminate jelly in the middle of the board. Avoid the blockers under the dispensers for as long as possible. Create vertically-striped candy to use in the bomb dispenser columns after the middle is cleared. Ingredients fall from this column as well as bombs. If most of the jelly is removed along the middle, combinations come together easily. Special combinations such as striped and the color bomb are effective in clearing a large quantity of jelly. Once the board is opened up, use the vertical candy to move the ingredients down the board with ease. Concentrate on opening up the middle and the rest of the game falls into place. The biggest steps to success here is to hold back the bomb dispensers until the last part, make vertical candy whenever possible and, when the bombs drop at the end, keep an eye out for the countdown.
