Should I Spend Donuts On Milford and the Sarsaparilla Tree?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Update time in Springfield and everything’s coming up Milhouse!  Always nice to see new content in TSTO, as the latest event has hit our games.  Of course, an all-new event means all-new premium content in our stores, just tempting us to drop those pink sprinkles!

As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us to grab everything in sight 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 Milford and the Sarsaparilla Tree to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this throwback combo to your town…

  1. Love the game still, and this event has kept me interested. But I maxed out the game cash a while back, and each morning burn through rat-trap trucks to free up space so I don’t let the town clearing go to waste. I stopped KEM farming and don’t even try for three donuts because of the time it takes. I’m barely past 1400%, and have more donuts and cash that I even know how to use. The events keep my interest up, even when they’re less than stellar, but this one I’m really enjoying. Everything’s coming up Milhouse!

    I’m just…I’m at a place where when/if EA stops the game, I’d be okay, which I didn’t think would ever be a thing.

    So, for a jaded multi-year donut farmer every premium item is “worth” it. Why else do we play?

  2. Instant buy for me, I’m really pleased to have this in my town 😊🇬🇧👍

  3. CJBrownLV Thank you for the Grand Pumpkin clip! Love that Treehouse of Horrors!! Made my day! 🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃

      The Great 🎃 is one of the best Decor that acts like a Character (Millhouse has a permanent Task with 🎃 ) EA ever offered in Game App (this is the type of Decor I want, what we’ve been getting as Event Prizes for almost 2 years? it’s stuff we used to Craft!)

      Oh yeah I’ve also been shopping for Halloween Swag everywhere (lol!) but I can tell everyone some of the best animatronics are at Home Depot 😉👍🏻

  4. Milford and the Sarsaparilla Tree – of course I spent the sprinkles on this Premium Character Combo (why complain of lackluster Event Prizes, when you can get right to the joy of a Character w/Decor that actually has a permanent Visual Character Task!) 😀👍🏻

    Wondering if any of the new Characters will be voiced? I wouldn’t bother (besides, the 🌲 increased my Bonus % and Milford had a fun Questline!) 😉

    There is a fine line between using 🍩’s and real 💸 … and I can’t advocate the later ’til EA fixes everything in this Game App. 🤫

  5. I grabbed him. 1. He’s cute
    2. A different looking tree
    for my Springfield!
    It looks good in my Halloween section!
    Yes everyone I just said Halloween 🎃 I have always, my whole life had a great love for Halloween. If I could I would live in Halloween town!! Or just leave the decorations up all year long but I can’t. My husband is a Christmas guy! Today being September 1st it is the day we decided I can start Halloween in my house! I gave him the second week in November! It works! On a side note Patric, love the George Carlin “Stuff” insert on the Friday filler! Thanks. These were my off topic all over the place thoughts for the day. Happy Day Friends and Happy Tappin! 🎃🍩🎃🍩🎃🍩🎃

  6. Just a suggestion for these posts – it would help me to know the relationship of these more obscure characters to the main characters. In this example, how is Milford related to Milhouse and how did they meet/interact? Thanks!

    • That’s the point of the WDTCF (where did that come from). Shows you the episode so you can go back and rewatch if you so choose.

    • Hmm…Well…speaking for both Alissa and I…
      Ah, never mind. You asked nicely, so I’ll reply nicely.
      This site is a ton of work as it is.The Simpson’s Wiki is really your best bet for the obscure facts about obscure characters. Or ask Safi.

    • In case you haven’t looked online or watched the episode he is from (The Color Yellow) recently, Milford is Milhouse’s great-great-great-great-great grandfather so Milford and Milhouse haven’t met or interacted with each other on the show.

  7. I’ve noticed that I can’t farm blood mobiles – or anything else – for donuts. This changes the game for me. No matter how many bloods I stack up I only get one offer of donuts. Is this a glitch or is it for keeps?

  8. But….. Should i spend my donuts on it? :p
