As we got into Portland, the girl at the information desk at the airport told me we had to try Voodoo Doughnut. I always appreciate recommendations when traveling, and that is exactly what we did on a Sunday morning. Cory and I woke up early and excited to try it out. We walked from our hotel about 6:30-7am and we were able to get right in even with the long line down the street. They are open 24 hours, but what better time to go then in the morning for a sweet treat!If you think the lines look long here, they are even longer around midnight as people leave all the pubs, and get the sweet munchies according to Kayla, Cory’s cousin.
We ended up getting half a dozen, which is normally way too much for us, but we couldn’t pass up trying the famous Voodoo Doll – the face drawn out with a heart that is pierced by a pretzel which then oozes out red raspberry filling. 🙂 Then, the Oreo doughnut, and hello….they even had a bubble gum doughnut. Do you see the Fruit Loops one?!I’m not used to eating so much sweets, but it was worth it. We even went a second time to try out the one we missed liked the ‘Bacon Maple bar’….it was REALLY GOOD. It was liking having bacon and pancakes with maple syrup.
If you’re ever in Portland, be sure to make Voodoo Doughnut a “go-to” spot.
