Voodoo Doughnuts

I mentioned in a #POTD earlier this week that we’d gone to Voodoo in Portland. The line outside was long and the sun was blazing – two things to quickly make me very cranky. But I had high hopes after reading so many good reviews online, and decided that it had to be worth the wait.

Once we finally made our way to the doors, I realised that there was a line snaking around the store. Thankfully it was out of the sunshine though.

After much humming and hawing, we each selected 2 donuts..

(Yes, I know I spell it differently to Voodoo.. but both are correct.. ahem)

Blueberry Cake and Dirt for me, and Voodoo Doll and plain glazed for James. I carried that bright pink box through town like it was precious cargo and looked forward to trying them later that day when we arrived at Silver Fall State Park campground.

I supposed you’d like to see the donuts?

Drum roll, please..

Verdict? Don’t believe the hype!

The two top donuts (Dirt and Voodoo Doll) were really good. The others weren’t. Would I stand in line like that again, when we have better donut options back home? That would be an hard pass.

But I’m happy to say that we’ve been, and have checked it off the list.

Have you been to Voodoo? If so, what are your thoughts?

Bon Appetit!
