First board: Activate the striped candy offered in 1st board. The easiest way to do this is to activate the two fish. The first fish will release the second fish, and the second fish will activate the striped candy.
Second board: Combine a color bomb with red candy. This will match the purple candies and create a blue vertical striped candy.
Third board: Pop the bottles to raise the soda. If possible, activate the blue vertical striped candy when it is in the left-most column and the soda is already raised. This would bring the bear all the way up the column.
