Voodoo Doughnut

Depending on who you ask, many might speculate that doughnuts have replaced cupcakes as the hottest bakery trend.A trip to Portland could not be complete without a trip to Voodoo Doughnut.

I tried to keep our order under control by keeping it to four doughnuts (clockwise):

mango tango: a yeast raised doughnut with a vibrant mango jelly filling, vanilla frosting, and a citrusy dusting of tang; verdict: a pleasant surprise

maple bacon long john: a yeast raised doughnut, strong maple presence in the frosting, overly crispy bacon; verdict: not as good as Dynamo Donut in SF

apple fritter: large and in charge, this apple studded fritter was well spiced with cinnamon, tender dough; verdict: solid

chocolate covered buttermilk: a standard doughnut for comparison between doughnut purveyors, not especially memorable
