Donuts. Is There Anything They Can't Do?

Hello donuts! Or is it doughnuts? Well, in any case, for the sole purpose of convenient writing, I will be addressing these bad boys as "donuts".

My next adventure brings me to Portland, Oregon, land of the...the...the I don't really know. What is Portland known for? From what I've seen on TV, all I know is that Portland has Voodoo Doughnuts, this apparently really famous donut shop. And really, who could say no to donuts? (Well, maybe my friend Antonio, Mr. Mediterranean diet!) They're sweet, deep-fried, and above all, deee-licous!


I have to say, Voodoo Doughnuts is one of the funkiest doughnut joints I've ever been to in my life. They've got things on their menu like Triple Chocolate Penetration, Diablos Rex, Gay Bar, and Old Dirty Bastard, among many many others.

You know I couldn't resist taking a picture of this...the Cock-N-Balls. And I would've gotten it too...but it was simply too big for me to put my mouth around. ;)


And...and...they display their donuts in a glass case. A rotating glass case. It was almost hypnotizing. My advice to the new Voodoo Doughnut customers, come prepared. Because if you don't, you will be confused. Very confused.


Fortunately, I came very prepared. This is mainly because I've seen this particular donut featured on TV so many times. The bacon maple bar. Bacon? On a donut? I love bacon, and I love donuts, so why not?


It was weird, but good. The saltiness of the bacon somehow balanced out really well with the sweetness of the maple bar donut. Dare I eat it again in the future? Of course!
