Stuck in “buy milk” task

I sent my Springfielders on a “buy milk” daily challenge just before the Valentines day update and now most of my springfileders are stuck in that task. When they finish, I tap the thumbs up and the characters start emerging from the Kwik E Mart and I rack up dollars and XP, but the released characters immediately return to the Kwik E Mart and restart the task. I have tried unloading all other apps and reinstalling the game, but the problem persists. How can I get my springfielders unstuck so I can get back to playing the game? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

    Store the Kwik E Mart then go to the friend screen and back. That should release your characters and then replace the KEM into town.

    Store the building, go to friends screen, return to your town and replace the building, enjoy the new event. :)

  • Thank you! That worked like a charm.
  • Keep in mind that these glitches are opportune times to farm donuts, money, and recycling items, especially when you are maxed-out on levels! I was able to move the glitched Kwik-E-Mart near my recycling centers and collect the following within a few days:

    - $2.7 billion in money
    - 5,000+ donuts (from the cycling of 1,000,000 XP points at Level 939)
    - 200,000+ trash points
    - 80,000+ can points
    - 70,000+ plastic points
    - 65,000+ glass points

    The money can be used to farm the Tiki Bar, Bloodmobile, and/or Rat Trap Truck items for more donuts. The recycling items can be used to farm tracks and more donuts...

    All you need to do is move the Kwik-E-Mart with all the characters' 'thumbs up' states within the trigger range of your trash/can/plastic/glass recycling centers and their characters' 'thumbs up' states and tap it. Then, immediately tap the friends transfer icon. In a couple seconds, the Kwik-E-Mart releases the character and triggers the recycling centers for a split second before transferring you to your friend's location. Tap on the home transfer icon and the Kwik-E-Mart and recycling centers are back to completed 'thumbs up' states.

    I "dibbied up" the recycling center characters as followed (this may vary, depending on who are dedicated to the 'Buy Milk' glitch):

    -Mr. Flanders
    -Mayor Quimby

    -Reverend Lovejoy
    -Mr. Burns

    -Principal Skinner
    -Comic Book Guy

    -Dewey Largo
    -Jesse Grass

    Happy donut farming!!!
  • One other thing... Make sure you are doing all of this while your XP Collider is in operation! ;)

    We have suggested people farm this glitch before, but most people who come here for help with it seem really new to the game and just want it to stop.
  • hope it happens to me soon.
  • I am stuck in that loop right now, with all the Springfielers in the Krusty burger following a daily task. On one hand I want to move on with the game, but on the other hand... with the collider on ... All I can say is: wow wow wow. :)
  • Store the krustyburger.
