Should I Spend Donuts on the Cracker Fountain?

Level 37 is here and with it comes the Southern Cracker Fountain, a new premium decoration for your Springfield.  I’m sure you’re asking “Should I Spend Donuts On This?”  Well before you hit that confirm button, lets break down the Cracker Fountain and see if you should add it to your Springfield:
southerncrackerfountain_menu
Decoration: Southern Cracker Fountain
Donut Price: 30 donuts
Unique?: No, you can have as many as you want
Bonus: 0.75% (bonus cash and XP to all tasks)
Bonus % Per Donut Spent: 0.025%
Conform-o-Meter Points: 300 Vanity  
Where Can I Place It?: The Southern Cracker Fountain can be placed on the grass and pavement of Springfield and on the Squidport Boardwalk.

Final Thought: At 30 donuts the Cracker Fountain isn’t the most expensive premium decoration, and the bonus payout isn’t that bad.  It’s nice that it can be placed on the boardwalk, however it’s the kind of decoration that really only works in one place & that’s with the Southern Cracker Factory.  It’s a nice decoration to add to help decoration the premium building, but it seems like it’s the only place it really fits.
There are other non-premium fountains you can purchase in the game for the same features.
My advice is to skip this one, unless you have a ton of extra donuts to spare.  It’s one of those odd decorations that really only “goes” in 1 place, and in my mind just not worth the 30 donuts.

What do you think?  Will you be paying 30 donuts for the Southern Cracker Factory?

Should I Spend Donuts on the Cracker Factory & Luann?

Level 37 is here and with it (finally) comes Luann Van Houten, finally Milhouse isn’t an orphan anymore!  I’m sure you’re asking “Should I Spend Donuts On This?”  Well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding Luann and her crackers to your Springfield.

southerncrackerfactory_menu
Character & Building:
Luann Van Houten
Donut Price: 150 donuts
Pros:
-Comes with not 1, not 2 but THREE quests (involving Luann, Edna, Agnes, people of Springfield & Kirk)
-Several outdoor tasks with great animations
-Comes with her own building, Southern Cracker Factory
-Will ride around your Springfield in a MegaGlobe
-Only way to unlock Fleet-A-Pita Trucks for both Springfield and Krustyland
-Cracker Factory increases Indolence rating by 10 points
-Factory is also used, Luann has a permanent task for it.
-Another Female character in TSTO

Cons:
-Pricey.  At 150 donuts she’s not the most expensive character and building combo (heck Disco Stu was 180 donuts), but it’s still a high price.
-Not voiced.
-No character interaction after main questline is complete

Final Thought:
Personally, if you have the donuts to spend, I say go for it.  EA is giving you a ton of options with this purchase, including the Fleet-A-Pita.  While I do think 150 donuts is a steep price, I do think it’s one of the best premium values in the game.  So, if you can save up your donuts (or wait for a Gil Sale) because I think Luann and the Southern Cracker Factory are a MUST BUY.
