Should I Spend Donuts On the Zombie Sandwich?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Halloween in our pocket-size Springfields!  Yes that magical time of the year when our towns turn dark, our water becomes mucky, there are monsters everywhere to battle and (as with all events) there are LOADS of items to spend those sprinkles on!

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.

Wondering if you should add the Zombie Sandwich to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Zombie inducing dumpster to your Springfield…


Decoration/Building: Zombie Sandwich
Donut Price: 100 Dounts
Earns: Nothing as it sits (no income no bonus %)
MAG Points When Placed: 325ico_mhub_thoh2016_eventlevels
Size: 2×2
 Vanity +100

Leaves Stores November 15th


-Turns 34 Springfield Residents into Zombies!
-Zombie Job earns premium rate for 1hr task ($105/ea)
-Can send multiple residents to become Zombies at once
-It’s small (basically a dumpster) so you can place it just about anywhere in Springfield and it’ll fit in with design

-It is pricey for something that doesn’t earn income (on it’s own), and doesn’t come with a bonus %

Final Thought
Oh my gosh I love this!  You can send multiple characters at once…and the animation is just awesome!  Perfect if you want to have a zombie apocalypse in Springfield!
Buy it.

Honestly, this (in my opinion) is the BEST premium item of the entire event so far.  While 100 donuts is a bit steep in price…seriously, it’s awesome.  And unless you have a zombie phobia, you’ll regret it if you don’t grab this.  The sheer fact it can send 34 characters AT ONCE on a 1hr premium task is awesome….
Freemium players, get this.  BUT I will advise you to wait until Act 3 hits if you’re low on donuts…just in case one of the other new premium items to be released catches your eye.  Fortunately it’ll hang around until the event is over, so you have some time to make sure you’ll have enough donuts to support the purchase…

Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do.  And I can tell you as a premium player, I own it.  I love it.  But whatever you decide just remember this will be leaving our games soon, so make your final decision before it leaves our games on November 15th

Here’s you you can send on a task to become a Zombie (just tap on the Zombie Sandwich and the task box will come up. Note: a few of my characters were battling Monsters or Trick-or-Treating, but they’ll appear in this list below.  Their payout is the same as everyone elses):

Here’s a look at the Zombie-fied residents of Springfield…


And here’s how it looks in your game…for the most part they migrate towards to sandwich…

And because I think it’s THAT awesome…here’s an in-game video of how it’ll look… (Sorry there’s no sound..I’m at work and no chance (it’s so busy I’m just happy I had the time to write this post) to get away to do a voice over.)

What are your thoughts on the Zombie Sandwich?  Will you be picking it up or have you already?  How have you designed it in your Springfield?  Do you love the roaming Zombies?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

    My Zombie Sandwich has disappeared from my Springfield, has anyone else had this happen to their game?

  2. Want it 😁

  3. This item is so cool. One of the better prizes in the mystery box. The first item that I received. The animation of characters is very awesome. Good luck.

  4. So is this still turning people into zombies? It’s in the vault and it’s the last item on there, I spent 800 donuts on this event so far!!! Wondering if I should plunk down for this one or not. THanks.

  5. I’ve been saving my donuts specifically for this item. I’m kicking myself for passing on it last year and really hope they bring it back for THOH 2017.

  6. Hey EA! I want a Zombie Sandwich for the next [2017] treehouse of horror. Please. And while you’re at it make it a 24-hour job. I want everyone to zombie all da time.

  7. I can’t seen to find the zombie sandwich. 🙁 to buy it
    Have made sure all updated. Have everything.

  8. Zombie Sandwich or Cemetery Plot? (I have 125 Bonuts)

  9. After reading the post and the comments, looks like I’m going to have to use the XP generator and a few bloodmobiles/rat trap lorries to boost my donuts. Only have 60 at the moment but this looks too good to miss. Already regret not getting the clown bed to see the trick or treat costumes.

  10. I bought it but tbh, I regret it. It’s got a good payout rate especially for 1 hour tasks (which I hardly use anymore) but somehow with this purchase I felt kind of lousy that I was trading donuts for just more (kinda worthless after a certain level) money. I know that’s what we do with EVERY purchase, in fact being able to get a payout is the entire point of purchasing these items, but this one just felt really really crappy.

    • Instead of thinking of it as trading donuts for more money, think of it as trading donuts more XP, which ultimately leads to more donuts! 🙂

  11. Do the zombie jobs stick around after the event is over?

    • They should. They’re related to the item, not the event.

      • Thank you for the information on this item, which before I read your post I’d automatically dismissed it as a ridiculously overpriced dustbin.

        But I really only want it if the jobs remain. Is there any way to find out about this?

        • It should remain, but we won’t know for 100% certainty until the event is over. But my money is on it staying, as it’s not a task related to the’s a task associated with the item.

  12. Did I miss Brooders commenting on this? I’m only sad that Mr Teeny didn’t get a skin to make her holiday complete. I’ve thought zombies were played out a long time ago, but I’m still getting it just for the fun of it.

  13. I have just spent nearly an hour moving my ZS between my Super Heroes alley and my Glastonbury Festival area. By the time they get to the latter they are really hanging😂. This is easily the best item of this event to date. If I could improve it at all, I would have set it up as a pair so that the Zombies could walk from one dumpster to the other for the full hour. I would also have allowed us to toggle through a few select times, maybe even splitting the times between several Zombies if the game couldn’t handle the animation of 34 over too long a time period. Anyway, it’s never going to get tired & I’m never going to regret my purchase😍😍😍😍😍…..💜X

  14. I have my dumpster in my campground, so my zombies wander the spooky trees! I’m almost completely fremium but it is SO worth it!!

  15. This is a no brainer….literally

  16. Wow! This item looks so cool…but I’m really on the fence about it. Should I save my donuts for Black Friday or grab this?

    And just to be 100% certain, the tasks are permanent and you can still use it after the THOH event, right? Thanks! 🙂

    • Living on the eastside of the pond, I am aking a stupid question. What and when is Black Friday?
      (Obviously it’s on a Friday)

      • Black Friday is the Friday after the US holiday Thanksgiving when all the store have massive sales. It’s the start of the Christmas shopping season.

      • It’s called Black Friday because stores hope to move from the red (loss) to the black (profit) on their ledgers due to the start of serious Christmas shopping on the day after Thanksgiving. Big discounts to draw in customers and many people are off work for the four-day holiday weekend. When the shift to black doesn’t happen, that’s a sign of considerable consumer uncertainty, usually due to unemployment or fear of losing jobs.
