We had to pick up Drew's brother from the airport this morning, and when we were up there a week or so ago- I had wanted to go to Voodoo Doughnut, but it was getting late- so we decided to go today instead.
Let me tells you about it.
So, we go in, it's quite fun looking- they had old school desk+chairs to sit in to eat your doughnuts, but most everyone took them to go. Drew and I had to wait in line for about 20 minutes, but everyone seemed so happy that neither of us minded too much.
We decided on a voodoo dozen since we didn't know what to get exactly, and they put some of the fancy doughnuts in there along with regular kinds. These were our fancy doughnuts:
This purply one has purple pixie powder type stuff on it- it was actually really weird, but really good
We got a Cap'n crunch doughnut, and one with Oreo crumbs on it.
So of all the doughnuts we sampled, I think my favorite was just the regular glazed and the purple one. The others weren't very impressive. They used generic Cap'n Crunch which I was very disappointed in. That was the WHOLE reason for going. And let me tell you! There is a very distinct difference between fake cap'ns, and REAL cap'ns...there really is no comparison. So I was extremely bummed about that. I think I would have been better off getting like a maple bar at Safeway and stuffing cap'ns in my mouth at the same time to get the same effect-but even more delicious cause it would have been maple icing rather than white! Hahahaha!
I know some people rave about the place, and honestly, I can see where they get it. There aren't a whole lot of doughnut shops that have such a fun atmosphere, and such creative doughnut types. The problem is, is that I don't care about the creativity so much as the deliciousness of the doughnut.
I guess if you're vegan, this place would be nice for a treat since they had several vegan doughnuts. But I got to thinking, wouldn't most doughnuts be vegan if they don't have eggs in them? Isn't it just some kind of flour, sugar, oil, fried in some kind of vegetable/nut oil, and icing is just sugar and what nots. It'd be pretty easy I think?
All this place did, was make me miss Tasty's down in Utah so much more. Now THAT place has delicious doughnuts!
