Frosting Bomb, also known as "ice bomb" in some fanons, is a semi-special candy-blocker element in some fanons. This element does not appear in the original Candy Crush Saga.
In CCR, this element has many unique properties. They are similar to regular candy bomb, but have a snowflake on them. They have a move count like regular ones, but when they hit 0, they burst out the 3-layered ice cubes surrounding them instead of exploding the entire board, and convert themselves to a regular candy under the ice cubes. If there are immovable blockers surround them, the bomb explosion does not affect those blockers, but they can encase licorice swirls, waffles, and bubble gum. The frosting bomb explosion can never add any ice cube layers at all.
According to their effects, it can be a dreadful threat if the player does not remove them in time. In addition, they are not worth any points unlike regular ones.
In S2CCS, Frosting Bombs are known as Ice Bombs, and they behave differently than in CCR, even though they have the same appearance. The ice bombs award a 3000 point bonus when destroyed, and they decrease their counters by 1 every move. However, instead of ending the game when their counters reach 0, Ice Bombs detonate, destroying 12 surrounding candies in a diamond pattern. Hence, they behave like the Frostblooms in Bejeweled Stars, except they can be matched and cleared like a regular candy bomb. If the Ice Bombs are destroyed before reaching 0, only the point bonus is awarded. Ice Bombs are introduced at Level 1441.
In C437CCS, ice bombs act like they do in S2CCS. Ice Bombs are introduced at Level 1136.
Frosting bombs first appear in Level 797. They behave the same as in CCR, but they can add layers to ice cubes surrounding them as well.
Frosting bombs will never affect large blockers, moving tiles or honey.
