Halloween is upon us, which can only mean two things: voodoo… and doughnuts. Lucky for us, Kenneth “Cat Daddy” Pogson and Tres Shannon have combined the two to create Voodoo Doughnuts, a doughnut shop like you’ve never seen (or tasted) before. They feature doughnuts like Dubble Bubble, Arnold Palmer, Grape Ape, and our personal favorite, the Bacon Maple Bar. It’s a must have if you either live in or are passing through Portland, Oregon. Many of their doughnuts have names that will make you blush, but it’s worth the embarrassment for their finger-licking deliciousness.
Surprisingly, Cat Daddy and Tres were complete strangers to the doughnut industry until they learned the ins-and-outs from some well-seasoned veterans in California. They must have some type of doughnut gene in them because now they own this world-renowned shop that is never short on unique ideas or powdered sugar. The only thing that could be better than these doughnuts is knowing that the store is open 24/7 with three locations, so there’s never any reason to suppress a craving.
Trust us on this, going to Voodoo Doughnuts will be the only time your mouth will water for a Dirt Doughnut or an Old Dirty Bastard.
