How do I get past level 208

I have been playing this level for days. The candy grid is so small and broken up that it is quite difficult to make the needed candies. Also when you do get one, there seems to then be something to eat that. Either it reshuffles because of the small grid and limited moves, or some other thing that eats the progress you have made and then some obnoxious voice says..."Sweet"...NOT! I have even broken down and purchased help that were a total waste of money. Not doing that again. Help! If I can't move forward soon I may just need to find myself another game to play. A level you cannot pass is zero fun.

 


And then when a striped eats the 5 candy but it doesn't count...Grrrrr
