Before episode: Tiffi encounters a mummy who is very tired and is unable to enter his pyramid due to a rat that has taken the key from him. After episode:
Tiffi throws three candies on the ground to pile up the sand and to lure the rat. As to thank Tiffi, he willingly returns the key to its rightful owner. Then, when the key is used to open the pyramid, an opening is seen.
There is also a new booster named "Bubblegum Troll", which is very similar to the character Bubblegum Troll. He can make all the chocolate in the board disappear and block chocolate spawners for a few moves.
Pastille Pyramid contains levels 156 to 170. Although it has some easy levels, this episode is considered to be one of the hardest episodes in Candy Crush. Pastille Pyramid formerly contained 4 very hard levels 158, 165, 167, and 169, but level 165 was upgraded to insanely hard recently. However, level 165 just received a massive nerf, making it much easier. Plus, the episode also includes other hard levels, like 159, 161, and 162. Level 159 is one of the hardest timed levels in the game. Because of all this, it is considered the second hardest episode in the entire game, behind Soda Swamp. Its average difficulty is very hard.
