Starts August 14th - David the Zoologist has a nose for finding exotic animals and is now exploring Sugar Dust Valley on the hunt for candy critters ! He has found three campsites populated with sweet animals! The problem is that they are hidden... if you help him find them , you will be able to keep the Candy Mountain Unicorn on your farm as a bonus prize! FarmVille will soon come out with another tiered level crafting basket in the style of the Ghoul Ball , the Sugar Dust Valley and Mashashi's Ultimatum. We will be collecting and crafting Sugary Sweet Treats to redeem for prizes. The best part of this feature is that you will redeem prizes of your choice, using Sugary Sweet Treats as currency, no random chances. Your Dirt Farmer team has the details below for you, read on to get the scoop and please share.....
Sugar Dust Valley is currently scheduled to go live on August 14th, 2017 and end on September 13th, 2017
A look at the loading screen that we will see when the feature goes live on our farms.
The pop-up that we will receive inviting us to play Sugar Dust Valley
A preview of the feature walkthrough with David himself.
We will be able to choose from 3 campsites of different sizes and difficulty levels to play for.
David will make a recommendation for each one of us for best odds to finish based on prior completion rates.
If you are not happy with the crate you chose, you can switch only once and keep your progress.
We will be able to post or craft for Sugary Sweet Treats to lure the exotic animals out of hiding.
A look at the recipes for crafting the Sugary Sweet Treats.
Each recipe includes one new crop. The new crops will be in the market at the regular update time, prior to the feature’s release. All three are currently available in the Bushel Swap feature if you wish to get a jump.
Remember that new crops give lower bushel yields until they are mastered, so plan your planting quantities accordingly.

By redeeming all of the animals in our chosen crate, we can win a bonus prize - and keep the Candy Mountain Unicorn on our farms.
If you complete your crate with time remaining on the feature, you can replay it or play another crate.
If you do happen to choose a crate that you have already played, David will check with you to see if you really wish to do that, so you don't have to worry about having to complete the same crate again due to one misclick.
As mentioned above, we will be collecting and crafting Sugary Sweet Treats to lure the animals out of hiding. We will also be able to purchase these for Farm Cash.. Note that the quantity and pricing text is a placeholder. The actual cost will be available in game.
Now for a look at the crates and rewards. As usual, there are some animals unique to each crate, and some that repeat in two.
The Latte Lake Campsite has FIVE animal rewards that you can redeem. You will need a total of 290 Sugary Sweet Treats to redeem all rewards in this campsite.

You will need 2,510 Sugary Sweet Treats if you want to complete all 3 stages and get all 25 animals.
You can save 450 of these or need a total of 2,060 by doing the large CHOCO FOUNTAIN campsite LAST!. This is because there are no duplicates between small and medium, and 5 duplicates in the large that can be found between the other two. If you already have these animals, you will not need to redeem them again, thus saving yourself a lot of treats. This way, you will be covered regardless of whether duplicates are checked off or not;
That is the equivalent of making 502 if 2,510 or 412 if 2,060 of the Trekking Tents that grant 5 Sugary Sweet Treats
This will require 1,506 Gumball Berry bushels, 1,506 Neon Apple bushels and 1,004 Roasted Marshmallow Sticks bushels for 502 Trekking Tents
1,236 Gumball Berry Bushels, 1,236 Neon Apple bushels and 824 Roasted Marshmallow Sticks bushels for 412 Trekking Tents
