“It’s mostly a line of strange looking people with tattoos and piercings, waiting for their morning coffee. I never felt so old, so square and so out of it as I felt at Voodoo Doughnuts.”
- Jan Stern on the April 21st, 2007 Portland Oregon Splendid Table Podcast
Sweets and I sat down at the outside table with our own bacon maple bars (yes, we’re not sharing). We were too overwhelmed by the choices and the highlighted doughnut case to pick anything more subtle, so the eponymous bacon bar won us over.
Just the simple act of sitting with this thing brought one person passing by to shake their head in disbelief.
It’s a fun doughnut, though rather a bit underwhelming for what it is. Yes, its just a maple bar with a piece of bacon slapped on it. If I were gonna go all out, I’d fill it with bacon studded cream and add bourbon too. But, that’s just my tendency to go over the top.
Next time I’m getting a Tang dusted one.
