Pack your bags and prepare for an invasive screening at the airport because it’s travel time in Springfield! And while our towns are embracing their ever expanding airports, our donut bank is shrinking because there are LOADS of worldly items in our stores just tempting us with those sprinkles!

Wondering if you should add the Carnival Float and Xoxchitla?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Brazilian Boobie dancer to your Springfield…
