Voodoo Doughnuts is known for its atmosphere and creativity more than just the taste of donuts and I would have to agree. This is a brand most people think of in Portland, but if you’re a real Portlander, you know there are better tasting donuts (see my Pips & Blue Star reviews).
While Voo Doo does have alot of different flavors to offer, in my opinion, most of the taste is from the frosting. There is nothing special about the donut cakes themselves. I’m a bit of a peanut butter fanatic so I ordered the Old Dirty Bastard (with chocolate, oreos and peanut butter), the butterfinger, and the Neapolitan with strawberry frosting and marshmellows.
The donuts were good, but I still don’t think they compare to Pip’s. Prices are very reasonable though! I guessss you should check this out if you come to Portland to order an outrageous flavor.
