Voodoo Doughnuts unveiled vegan yeasted donuts last year in addition to their cake varieties, and vegans jumped for joy. New! Vegan! Treats!
Both Voodoo locations were already round-the-clock traditions for Portlanders and tourists, and this upped the excitement for donuts. I’ve sampled a few since they unveiled vegan versions of nearly all their regular yeasted donuts. They were tasty, and I thought the toppings and venture ruled, but the old school maple glazed and chick-o-stick cake varieties remained my choice for sporadic indulgence.
I figured two things: they would only get better!, and that I just wasn’t fortunate enough to try a super fresh one…yet.
Which leads to something awesome! Last weekend, I waited on a brief early morning line at Voodoo and was blessed with a fresh.yeasted.mister dollface of a doughnut – the McMinnville Cream, and everything was right. The donut was soft and chewy, and filling was generous and creamy, and the icing was maple with a pink mustache. Just look at it!
