Nothing So Sweet, part 1:

Nathaniel: The Candy Shoppe is back and better than ever, and I have the citizens of Springfield to thank.
Dr Hibbert: I’m your biggest fan! The more sugar you provide, the more patients I get!
Nathaniel: Anyway, why not repay their kindness by offering one free bag of candy to every customer?
Moe: *holding garbage bag* He never said how big a bag!

• Make Nathaniel Sell Sweets – 4 hours

Homer: This candy tastes so much better knowing that it’s free.
Marge: Homer, go easy on the sugar…
Nathaniel: Don’t worry, Marge, as long as he’s chowing down on sweets, he won’t be drinking himself into oblivion.
Homer: I’m drunk off candy!
Marge: It’s always the same with you.

Reward: 100 $$s, 10 XP

Nothing So Sweet, part 2:

Nathaniel: Well, the Candy Shoppe is doing great business, but there’s a lot of Springfield I have to thank for giving us a second chance.
Nathaniel: And how better to show that than by helping out?

• Make Nathaniel Offer Repair Services – 4 hours

Willy: Ach, what’s with that gear in your hand, laddie?
Nathaniel: Pardon me sir, I was just lending a hand, giving back to the town we’ve been so graciously raised in.
Willy: I’m the handyman in these parts! Mending’s my middle name, and I won’t be usurped like some John Balliol!
Nathaniel: Who is John Balliol?
Willy: Did you never take Scottish History, you daft dunlin?!

Reward: 100 $$s, 10 XP

Nothing So Sweet, part 3:

Willy: Oh look, it’s the guy trying to steal my gig as the angry handyman.
Nathaniel: Is there anything I can help you with?
Willy: Stop being so nice, it’s weird and annoying!
Nathaniel: It’s just in my nature to help out… but if it makes you feel better, you can Venmo me.
Willy: Ok, fine, I do have a wee problem. Do you know a way to get ink stains out of carpet?
Nathaniel: Hmm, ink stains? How much ink are you talking?
Willy: Well, the budget got cut at the school, so now all the kids are using ink and the feathers I pluck from my goose, Goosius!
Goosius: Honk!
Willy: Anyway, the kids are spilling ink all over the new carpets.
Willy: It’s like a Jackson Pollock painting in there!
Nathaniel: Hmm… have you tried baking soda?
Willy: Do ye think I’m some gowkish Grampian?! Of course I’ve tried baking soda!

  1. Purchased The character 4 300 Doughnuts

    I still have the character n The Building But sure enough
    It shows him in the store at end of event…

    Wondering if it is a glitch cause I thinking could U have multiple of him in the town? Just curious if any other ppl saw this also..

  2. This seems to be the second event in a row where the real cash character isn’t an option for me. It appears in the collection view, but when I go to buy donuts there’s no character there

  3. I purchased this character. I really liked his outfit I thought it was cute. I wanted to support the game last time but did not liked the character they were offering. So I don’t mind purchasing this one at 20 dollars.

  4. Hard pass. I have no problem with using real world money to support the game. Usually we see a 132 donuts bundle with a character but a 300 donuts bundle at $27.99 is too much to ask for just a character/building combo. EA is getting a little greedy with this one.

    • I had to take a mo when I saw it was the 300 Ds pack for this and go make sure I’d not mis-read it. !!

      To be fair with 2 games on the go I usually pass up on these anyway and stick to buying Black Friday tokens and the odd golden scratch-r ( actually got 3 games going, but the latest never gets anything unique from events, only regular store or vault items and the odd repeatable deccie – so I can check what’s in store if they return )

      Amazon are taking the mick too, in the UK it’s £17.99 on both my android tablet and phone but it’s £19.99 on the Kindle

  5. Good morning! Hi are we going to be able to vote in the brackets for the splash screens?
