The colouring candy in Soda saga is a really powerful tool if used to the best advantage, but can easily go to waste if you're not careful with it.
It can be used alone on a single candy or combined with other special candies for a more destructive effect.
The Soda Saga colouring candy can be any colour and is sometimes provided on the board as the one above.
You can make the colour changer by matching a line of 5 as you would a colour bomb, but to make the colour changer you also need a sixth candy opposite the middle one,
see image below.
As you can see from the picture, you can move the red candy above down or the one below up, to complete the line of 5 with the sixth making a sort of T shape.
Once you have your colouring candy you want to use it to the best advantage.. In some ways it behaves like the colour bomb, but in other ways it is very different.
Switch it with a single candy of any colour and it changes all the candies of that colour into its own colour.
Eg: If the colouring candy is red and you switch it with a green candy, all the green candies on the board will turn red. This will be the same with any colour.
If you switch it with a candy of the same colour a random colour will change.
In the image below I have switched a green colouring candy with a pale blue candy..
Switch the colour changing candy with a fish
If you switch a colour changer with a fish all the candies the same colour as the fish AND the same colour as the colour changer will turn into fish and flit around hitting useful squares. In the image below I switched an orange colour changer with a yellow fish so all the yellow and orange candies are turning into fish.
Switch the colour changing candy with a stripe.
If you switch the colour changer with a striped candy all the candies the same colour as the colour changer and the stripe will turn into stripes the same colour as the colour changer and fire off in random directions.
Switch the colour changing candy with a colour bomb
If you switch a colour changer and a colour bomb together you will get Rainbow Kimmy! a huge explosion will clear several layers off the whole board, good for frosting and honey levels, but not so good for soda bears as they tend to have larger boards and only what is visible will be cleared.
Switch the colour changing candy with a wrapped candy.
As with the stripe and fish, if you switch the colour changer with a wrapped candy all the candies the colour of the wrap and the colour changer will be turned into wraps and explode twice. This is one of the most powerful combos you can use and it will clear a lot of whatever is on the board.
Switch two colour changing candies together.
If you ever get the chance to switch 2 colour changers together ALL the candies on the board change to one colour and are cleared from the board. This is useful on frosting levels but not so much on honey bears levels.
