Should I Spend Donuts On Fancy Farms?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Ah Autumn…leaves are falling, that crispness in the air has arrived and there’s a brand new season of TV on!  Ok so it’s fall, and it still feels completely like summer (at least here in New Jersey) BUT…the last part is true.  There’s a whole new season of TV shows…and the Simpsons Season 28 starts this Sunday!  To celebrate the Season Premiere EA has launched a fun Episode Tie-In Mini Event in our games..something to gear us up for Sunday.  So bust open those wallets, because there’s a store full of premiums just waiting for you!

Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks as awesome as this because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.
