Where Did THAT Come From – Lollipop Flowers, Marshmallow Tree & Ye Olde Chocolate Shoppe

Just hear those sleigh bells ring-a-ling, jing jing jing-a-ling too… Yes Addicts it’s lovely weather for an origin together with you!

In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where Did THAT Come From?

Woo hoo! It’s holiday time in TSTO and with the first two Acts of goodness we got all sorts of different items. I’m seriously enjoying this event so far. Snowmen, Moe dressing up animals, merrymakers, reindeer burgers, holiday facades… so cool. I could probably gush and gush about everything but that’s not what I’m supposed to be doing… it’s time again for me to dip into my noggin of Simpsons info and write about specific stuff. For this post I will be going over a couple freemium decorations that came with Act I of the 2015 TSTO Holiday Event and the third prize for Act II… the Marshmallow Tree, Lollipop Flowers, and Ye Olde Chocolate Shoppe. They might seem like strange items to be included with Christmas but I’m in love with them mainly because of their origin.  Can you think of a candy-related episode from The Simpsons? Well.. let’s take a look at the TV Series to find out.

I actually wrote up the origin for just the freemium items but as often happens, there’s so much stuff to shoot out to y’all, this post was still sitting when the Chocolate Shoppe dropped.  Since they all come from the same episode, I included them together.  Anywho… on to the episode.

“Burns Verkaufen der Kraftwerk” (S3:E11)

Mr. Burns sells the Nuclear Plant to German businessman for 100 million dollars. They plan to make the plant much more efficient but are a little concerned over the safety at the plant. We all probably shouldn’t be surprised since Homer Jay Simpson is the Safety Inspector. During a meeting with Homer, they ask him for ideas about some safety initiatives. Good ol’ Homer draws a blank of course but mentions getting a candy machine that isn’t so picky about taking beat up dollar bills… because a lot of workers love chocolate. Of course the Germans understand… “We are from the Land of Chocolate.” (cue amazing Homer daydream.)

Land of Chocolate Simpsons

Of course there’s more than just marshmallow trees and lollipop flowers… Homer ends his chocolatey journey at none other than Ye Olde Chocolate Shoppe.

Funny that Homer daydreams for 10 minutes and gets fired. And that’s it friends… Lollipop Flowers, the Marshmallow Tree, and the Chocolate Shoppe from a daydream that now are part of our games. Pretty sweet that EA threw in this little callback from Season 3 to coincide with this year’s Christmas update. You may also remember the Land of Chocolate from the first level of The Simpsons Game (2007).  The Marshmallow Trees and Lollipop Flowers featured here too.

Land of Chocolate The Simpsons Game

Did you already buy a ton of these beauties for your town? Earn the Chocolate Shoppe yet? They could look right spiffy next to the Fortress of Choclitude or your Santa’s Village if you have them. Heck, they could go well next to Clausco too. What did you do with them? The prices are right IMHO – Lollipop Flowers – $6500/Marshmallow Tree – $10K.  Sound off in the comments and Happy Merry Tapping to all of you!

TTFN… Wookiee out!

  1. So many cool Freemium Buildings / Crafted Buildings – a shame we cannot place them in Krustyland ( there could be a Santa’s Village section as well as a section devoted to chocolate delicacies – please fix this EA!)

    For the most part I have enjoyed Xmas 2015 Event 🙂

    I’ve gotten several of the decorations and put them around Suzanne The Witch’s house, since it’s supposed to be gingerbread and entice children. I’m sure I’ll place a bunch more in my Christmas area, too.

    I’m mostly like Sandra, preferring realistic things in my game. But I did buy a whole slew of cotton candy trees and have placed them here and there, and I think they look nice. I’ve also got a few placed in my Abe Lincoln farm. He’s very resourceful and harvests whatever the game will allow, so, I foresee him also planting a few marshmallow trees. 😉

    I also hope they allow us to place them in KL at some point. I’d like them to do more with it. I feel like it’s been totally forgotten by EA.

  3. After re-seeing the image of the chocolate falling from the sky, I can’t seem to get “Chocolate Rain” out of my head (I bet that’s where he got the idea).

    I keep tapping Homer near the shop yelling “Prance Fat Boy, Prance!”

    I know I keep Fudging this idea about a Land of Chocolate Event, but come on, it would be so SWEET. 🙂

  6. I turned like half of Springfield Heights into an outdoor shopping mall then dedicated a little area to be “Santa’s Village” and put the Chocolate Shop next to that.

  7. I bought a bunch of the trees and bushes, with the plan of adding a Land of Chocolate to Springfield. These, the shop, the Fortress of Chocolatude, and the fudge factory. Should make for a nice suburb.

  8. It’s too bad you can’t put the lollipops, at least, in Krustyland. They’d make a great decoration there. I bought a bunch of them and stashed them, hoping maybe that’ll change down the road. What can I say- I kinda like Krustyland and wish EA wouldn’t neglect it so much,

  11. Random Question.
    Is there crafting in Act 3?
    Would it use the same crafting resources as the event so far?
    Should I save or spend my resources before Act 2 ends?

  13. I bought the lollipop flowers because, I think, if you put them right next to each other in a row, they might actually look like an interesting kind of fence/wall (and I’m always looking for new types of fences/walls!).

    I also bought some marshmallow trees, but I’m not sure whether I’ll use them, since I’m mostly keeping my town to a more reastic look I’ll need to see what those look like with the other trees, once the other trees get their leaves back. It’s too bad they weren’t marshmallow flowers or bushes, because then I could pretend they were cotton and have a cotton field somewhere.

    • I know it’s not what you meant but all of a sudden I picture skyfingers forcing the Simpsons to pick cotton every time they’re mad at the game.

      • Oh, but I did have a thought along those lines…. I had a passing thought about needing those “immigrant” elves back from last Christmas to pick the cotton, but it felt too “wrong,” so I didn’t post it.
