Wow… we underestimated Oregon’s love for donuts. We didn’t think anyone but New York could make us feel self-conscious about our decision for best donut shop, but the great state of Oregon is definitely making a case for that title. There are a plethora of great options, but due to its wacky and daring stance on flavor combinations, we chose Voodoo Donuts as our favorite! Yeah, you can play it safe with their signature voodoo doll doughnut, which is shaped like a doll, has raspberry filling and is accompanied by a pretzel stick so you can stab your voodoo doll (we told you that we picked the weird one), but where is the fun in that? Take the road less traveled and go for the grape ape doughnut which is sprinkled with grape Kool-Aid powder or go for the Arnold Palmer doughnut that has vanilla frosting topped with powdered lemonade and iced tea. Weird, right? In their early days, Voodoo Doughnuts also offered a NyQuil-glazed doughnut and a Pepto-glazed doughnut garnished with crushed Tums. The most interesting part is that they didn't stop making them because of a lack of demand. They stopped making them only because health officials stepped in and shut it down. Who knew medicinally-garnished donuts would be a problem? Weird.
