Voodoo Love!

As soon as I starting researching Portland, the name Voodoo kept popping up over and over. Don't get me wrong, my sweet tooth is very strong. But how great could a donut really be?

After an early morning flight, we found ourselves walking the streets of Portland in the late afternoon on Saturday. Right away, we found ourselves walking right passed the shop. However, there were red ropes containing a sidewalk full of people down the entire street! I was so disappointed but after seven hours of traveling, standing in a line was not ideal.

Sunday morning came and we woke up around 5am. Still on East Coast time, we figured we would take advantage of it. We had been told the day before that the shop was open 24 hours (people love their donuts!). So a short walk later, we had a pink box in one hand and some yummy coffee in the other. We made a sampler of the best sounding flavors and headed back to the hotel lobby to taste test. All of them were so incredibly tasty and fresh (and unique!), but my favorite, hands down, was the Double Bubble. Antonio's favorite was the Bacon Maple Bar.

I know this is a "Portland Must" when visiting, so I would suggest people visit the shop at an off time. Your tummy will certainly thank you.
