The newest arrival to the Aspirational buildings came in the form of the Fortress of Cholcitude. For those of you wondering, Aspirational Buildings in Tapped Out are a few buildings that are usually very high-priced, very large in size, do not come with characters, do not generate income and very rarely come with any quest lines that involve the people of Springfield. They are generally very obscure buildings that are only seen for mere seconds in episodes of the Simpsons. The Fortress of Choclitude is no exception. With a price tag of $10 million dollars, it is buildings like these that really take serious thought and consideration in regards to whether they are worth shelling out all of that in-game cash.
Have no fear! This is where I come in and do my best to give you the most accurate, reliable and relative information for items such as this in the hopes that it will help you make an informed decision as to whether to pass on or pay for the item. Although this item does not cost donuts, it may as well for the amount it costs and with that I bring you the Freemium Guide for The Fortress of Choclitude.
The Fortress of Choclitude comes to our virtual Springfield’s by way of an episode called “Girly Edition.” It was the 21st episode of Season 9 and aired on April 19, 1998.
The Fortress of Choclitude appears in a series developed by Krusty called the “Mattel and Mars Bar Quick Energy Chocobot Hour.” The idea for this show was pitched by Krusty after the FCC voiced their objections at the lack of education children were receiving from the Itchy & Scratchy Show.
To appeal to the FCC Channel 6 creates a new educational show with a news format called Kidz Newz. The children of Springfield were tapped as staff for the new show which included Lisa as head anchor. The show gets cancelled after an ongoing feud for the lead spot takes place between Bart and Lisa.
Although shot down at first, the “Mattel and Mars Bar Quick Energy Chocobot Hour” fills in the spot the cancelled news show held.
The Fortress of Choclitude is the headquarters of the Choco-Bots, which are a group of robots who resemble Mars Bars (chocolate bars), play with toys made by Mattel and live in the fortress.
The four Choco-Bots are:
The Unnamed Leader
The Chocobots resemble many super-hero groups and fight for the good of humanity. When called upon for duty the Chocobots put their chocolate bars together to “Power Up!”
And then fly through the roof of the Fortress.

The Fortress of Choclitude, like every other Aspirational building comes with an extremely huge price tag. These types of buildings are more suited for the long-term player who has played long enough to build a significant stash of in-game cash. Not much exists in the game that requires lots of steady payments of in-game cash so it’s not hard to have a lot on hand at higher levels. Obviously this item has no bearing on any of the game’s progression and is not a “must” buy.
For those of you just trying to get by and advance through the levels I say hold off on this. Only the Sit-N-Rotate and the Sunsphere are the only Aspirational’s that have come with any type of character involvement so this will basically just sit. However, it does have an awesome animation, is a highly unique building and is taken straight from the show which is a huge plus for me. It goes well with the Ah! Fudge Factory, in my opinion. Also you will get a substantial one-time boost to XP like all Aspirationals so there is a little bonus to the purchase.
The biggest pro for this item is that it is a permanent addition to the game meaning those of you struggling to get through have time and there is no need to rush out and purchase this right away. But if you do get to a point where you have a lot of game cash and nothing to spend it on I would highly recommend this building.
