Level 249 is the first Candy Crush level to introduce candy wheels. Candy wheels, when rolled, turns the candies it hits (up to three) into striped candies. If you roll them horizontally, they will turn three of the candies to vertically striped candies but if you roll them vertically, they would turn three candies to horizontal stripes. Three of these are given for free at the start of the level, and they could really help you face the challenges of the level: chocolate fountains, peppermint, gingerbread, and chocolate fountains. The following tips could also help:
1. Break blockers:
Basically clear everything that stands in the way of your ingredients and their exit points. This includes peppermint, chocolates, and gingerbread. The walls would be gone for good, but chocolates would just spawn again so make sure you keep them in check all the time.
2. Roll the candy wheels horizontally.
Since this is an ingredients level, you need vertical stripes more than you need horizontal stripes. Be careful not to roll the wheels vertically!
3. Use special candies to get your ingredients down:
Speed up the travel of your ingredients by using special combos on them. Most efficient would be a color bomb + striped candy combination as well as a pair of wrapped candies.
4. Have fun! Afterwards, go see if you could hit the jackpot from the spinning wheel!
