Voodoo Doughnuts

Voodoo Doughnuts, the original crazy-donut bakery, was nothing less than I expected. With quirky, overly sweet donuts like the ‘Captain My Captain’ and the ‘Marshall Mathers,’ Voodoo is always a hotspot in a tourist’s visit to Portland.

Because of its popularity, there is always a massive line outside of Voodoo, often wrapping to the other side of the block.

The interior and exterior of the donut shop are just as weird and quirky as its donuts – the outer brick is covered in gold and glitter, and the interior is completely pink with giant donuts on the ceiling.

The donuts themselves come in every color imaginable, and are full of sugar and other surprising flavors. There is the classic ‘Voodoo Doll Doughnut’, with raspberry filling and chocolate glaze, the ‘Loop Doughnut’, a regular sugar donut with vanilla glaze covered in Froot Loops, and then there are more adult humor donuts such as the ‘Cock n’ Balls,’ which is a giant you-know-what, and the ‘Maple Blazer Blunt’ donut, resembling a large blunt, complete with fiery red sprinkles on one end. Voodoo also offers less adventurous donuts like the Bacon Maple Bar or regular glazed donuts, but where’s the fun in that?

I, however, can’t handle too much sugar at once, so I couldn’t even get through one. I ordered the Limited Edition ‘Blue Moon Cream Pie’, which was a chocolate glazed donut with blue icing filling, topped with Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal. My friend got the ‘Dirt Doughnut,’ a vanilla glazed donut covered in Oreo crumbles.

While I had to try it once, I don’t think I could handle another heart attack of a donut. However, they are definitely fun to try once, and are always a hit with kids and Portland tourists!
