At first your moves should be vertical striped candies to hit any of the six columns which contain marmalade. Once the marmalade is broken you can swipe two wrapped candy together to make a special candy combo. It will trigger a chain reaction which can explode all wrapped candies. The columns that are close to the middle are the most effective one to clear jellies.
