Something funny’s going on in Old Town, and it’s no secret. The line out the door at Voodoo Donuts is populated with camera-carting tourists, locals sipping Stumptown coffee, and giggly girls waiting to pick up an order of “Cock-n-Balls” Donuts for a bachelorette party. Yes, you read that correctly. And, surprisingly, the donuts get even more outlandish. They were out of the Nyquil Glazed Pepto-Bismo donuts this particular afternoon, which is probably a good thing, as I’d be tempted to try them. It was early enough that the cereal-inspired donuts seemed appropriate: The Captain Crunch and the Triple Chocolate Penetration, covered in Cocoa Puffs. NOT to be missed are the Bacon Maple Bars, which might look off-putting with two slabs of bacon nestled in the frosting, but pack an entire pancake breakfast into one bite – to die for! Skip the Grape Ape, as we suspect cough syrup might be an ingredient here as well (blech).
