Voodoo type of thing

This morning we enjoyed a snack at Voodoo Doughnut Too. Not your average doughnut shop, Voodoo Doughnut states in their slogan that "the magic is in the hole." As seen on the food network and other TV shows, Voodoo Doughnut claims to have served a doughnut to Brad Pitt.

The look of the menu described Voodoo perfectly...

...and is therefore, my picture for the day.

We waited in line about twenty minutes to order our doughnuts (cash only), which was a perfect amount of time for me to narrow down my choice of doughnut to order. With options like Butterfingering, Bacon Maple Bar, Triple Chocolate Penetration, Memphis Mafia, Old Dirty Bastard, Buttermilk Bar, No Name and Miami Vice Berry, I was pretty much clueless as to what kind of doughnut I was actually ordering (however; there were many unidentified varieties of doughnuts in a tall glass case).

I ended up ordering the Maple Blazer Bunt, a raised doughnut coated in cinnamon sugar and rolled into a blunt with maple frosting and a red sprinkled ember. Tauni ordered the Mango Tango (a doughnut with vanilla frosting and mango jelly in the middle) and Eric ordered the Voodoo Doll (in the shape of a voodoo doll with raspberry filling and chocolate frosting), Apple Fritter (fried doughnut) and the Portland Cream (cream filled doughnut with chocolate frosting - also the "official doughnut of Portland). Eliza did not get to order a doughnut but did enjoy the 10 cent water. :)

After a few rounds of pinball and a picture session in the photo booth, we left voodoo satisfied...and ready to enjoy another beautiful day in Portland.
