There is a quote on the wall of VooDoo Doughnuts. It states that Americans consume more doughnuts during times of war than any other time. Being in a gloomy frame of mind, and feeling as though we’ve never not been at war, this was just the excuse I needed to pick up a sugary feel good treat.
For $8, Voo Doo will grab you a random 13 donuts, half classic, half crazy. I got a cereal and peanut covered one, and a chocolate with chocolate cereal balls for some of the crazies. On my way to the bus stop I gave away the top most donut,a big cream filled bar, to a stranger. The simple act of being a sugar fairy made me feel better already.
Coming home I snipped up the rest of the donuts with scissors to take over to our neighbors. While portioning the treats into smaller pieces, I discovered that I got more than 13 donuts in my order. Is this a sign that we, as a nation, are in more dire need for donuts than I realized?
Instead, I’ll take it as a reminder that donut love shared is donut love multiplied.

The idea that a baked doughnut can match up to its deep-fried brethren is laughable in some circles.

- Eggbeater, Doughnuts – Donuts:
Not me, you cry. But you pine. Secretly. Ashamed. Silent. In the dark you struggle with the donut demons. Glazes smile at you wickedly. Mocking. “You know you want me!” Cake doughnuts crumbs can’t satisfy.
- Cupcake Bakeshop by chockylit, Doughnuts and Coffee Cupcakes: the cupcakes – they tasted like a latte – sweet and moist with a milky coffee flavor. I enjoyed the end result like it was two desserts. I dipped the doughnut in some of the whipped cream and ate that, then had the cupcake separately. Both were tasty, but I must admit that the doughnut did out shine the cupcake. Maybe it was the novelty.
