How To Beat Candy Crush Level 169, Pastille Pyramid
The meringues are guarding the chocolate fountains here, but chocolate shouldn't get in your way too much, as it's a narrow grid. The matches you make whilst trying to get your combos should keep the chocolate trimmed back enough for you not to worry about it, and removing the meringues gives you more chances to make the combos you need.
Striped and striped should be easy enough - if you have a striped and striped match, but there's a wrapped candy or colour bomb on the screen and you can see how to move them together, go for the tougher matches first. Simplying focusing on making the combos you need should be the strategy for this level. You will get there, eventually!
