You can’t go to Portland without going to VooDoo Doughnuts, right? Cause I mean these are like the best doughnuts in the entire woooooorld! (online sarcasm, c’mon guys). Anyway, I heard of Voodoo a while back on one of those food shows, and I have always wondered what all the hype was about. So on my last day in Portland I decided to check out what Voodoo had to offer.
I didn’t want to say this but, DON’T BELIEVE THE HYPE!.. Trust me I really really wanted to like these. But as with anything that creates hype, you’re usually better off to not to get your hopes up. I had it in my head that this little piece of fried dough would somehow be some kind of life changing food experience, but when it came down to it, it was basically your run of the mill ho-hum basic doughnut with “crazy” toppings.
I did find a soft spot in my heart for the little raspberry filled voodoo guy. I mean how could you resist not getting one? I guess these were what put voodoo on the map because they had a whole shelf of these little voodoo dudes. Each one was decorated differently and they all had a pretzel stick (pin) poking into them somewhere. :0)
