Should I Spend Donuts on the Cracker Factory & Luann?

Level 37 is here and with it (finally) comes Luann Van Houten, finally Milhouse isn’t an orphan anymore!  I’m sure you’re asking “Should I Spend Donuts On This?”  Well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding Luann and her crackers to your Springfield.

Character & Building:
Luann Van Houten
Donut Price: 150 donuts
-Comes with not 1, not 2 but THREE quests (involving Luann, Edna, Agnes, people of Springfield & Kirk)
-Several outdoor tasks with great animations
-Comes with her own building, Southern Cracker Factory
-Will ride around your Springfield in a MegaGlobe
-Only way to unlock Fleet-A-Pita Trucks for both Springfield and Krustyland
-Cracker Factory increases Indolence rating by 10 points
-Factory is also used, Luann has a permanent task for it.
-Another Female character in TSTO

-Pricey.  At 150 donuts she’s not the most expensive character and building combo (heck Disco Stu was 180 donuts), but it’s still a high price.
-Not voiced.
-No character interaction after main questline is complete

Final Thought:
Personally, if you have the donuts to spend, I say go for it.  EA is giving you a ton of options with this purchase, including the Fleet-A-Pita.  While I do think 150 donuts is a steep price, I do think it’s one of the best premium values in the game.  So, if you can save up your donuts (or wait for a Gil Sale) because I think Luann and the Southern Cracker Factory are a MUST BUY.

  1. Just wondering, has this ever been on sale?

  2. Hi – I am trying to find the Cracker Factory on my build menu but I cannot find it. Looked on “Buildings”, “houses”, but I cannot find it. Help!

  3. I just spent the donuts to purchase this! So excited for all of the extra questlines that have been added for having her and the fleet-a-pita!
    Whooooot! I wish I had gotten it earlier. Wondering if I should get bumblebee man to complete all of the investors quests.

  4. I purchased luann & thought I ran through all the tasks & fleet a pita is still locked…..level 49. Any ideas?

  5. Does the fleet-a-pita give you a permanent 16hr task for all springfielders?

  6. Please help!! Agnes is locked!! I have purchased a Fleet a Pita. My problem is I cannot purchase the Skinner House to receive Agnes. It won’t allow me to begin the Milhouse Eureka task. Please help! I

  7. As my city planning is underway, I was wondering if you can tell me the dimensions of the cracker factory please, face length and depth please and thank you.

    Once unlocked, how much do the Fleet-a-Pitas cost?

  9. Is it just me or is Luann’s “dress up the flag” task kinda risque?

  10. Luann is definitely worthwhile spend a new building character and added decorations, good even for meanium players
