This is a public service announcement: Voodoo Doughnuts will put you in a sugar coma. Seriously. These are the most spectacular doughnuts that have graced my palate in this millenium. If you are anywhere near Portland or Eugene, Oregon, I will not speak to you again if you don’t go to Voodoo Doughnuts and consume upwards of 2,000 calories. Okay, maybe that sounds a bit harsh, but it’s true. My top two choices at this elegant establishment are the Bacon Maple Bar (Yes a maple bar with two strips of bacon on it) and the Old Dirty Bastard (Oreo’s on a doughnut!!!).
I used to live in Portland so I’ve had the pleasure of these decadent desserts on numerous occasions. Since I was in Eugene recently, I discovered they’ve expanded their empire to this fine college town and the residents seem to have recognized their mastery. Who are the fiends that devise these devilish delights? Well you can read their story here and check out the menu here, but don’t stop there. Get off the couch and get yourself a doughnut.
