Reset your board if you are dealt bad candies.
On any untimed level of Candy Crush, you can reset your board before you make any moves. If you don't like the set-up, tap out to the main menu and then tap back into that Candy Crush level. The board will be different and you won't lose any lives.

Step 1. Before you have made any moves, exit the level and return to the level map.

Step 2. Reopen the level.

Step 3. You will have a brand new board, without losing ANY lives. That's it!
