Donuts () are the premium currency for The Simpsons: Tapped Out. They can be obtained by purchasing them from the store, leveling up, and randomly by; cleaning Debris, doing Friend Actions after maxing out your Friendship Level, from a Mystery Box, and playing the Sideshow You game in Krustyland. After hitting the current Level Cap players get Bonus Levels that XP is applied to until a new Level is released during Content Updates. On each Bonus Level the player gets 3 boxes to pick from, each box contains 1, 2, or 3 Donuts, if you do not get 3 Donuts on the first try you can try again for 50000 cash.
On February 28, 2013, the Golden Scratch-R was added to the game, which gave the Player a chance to win up to 100 Donuts. It worked in a similar way to the regular Scratch-R in that you scratch off three boxes and whatever is revealed indicates the amount won. On June 3, 2014, the Stonecutters 2014 Event was introduced, during this Events there was a Secret Bonus unlocked once the player earned all the Personal prizes where a chance for up to 3 Donuts was earned every 3,000 Emblems, with bonus tries for 150,000 cash, similar to the regular Bonus Levels.
Donuts can be purchased from The Store. The player can buy different Donut packages for different prices:
