Voodoo Doughnut – The “No Name”

October 2nd, 2008

Voodoo Doughnut

Meet Voodoo Doughnut’s crazy chocolate peanut butter doughnut. It’s called the “No Name” because it’s “a doughnut so good we couldn’t come up with a better name. It has chocolate, rice crispies and peanut butter on it.”

They also have a doughnut called the Memphis Mafia* which includes chocolate chips, banana, peanut butter and glaze. And just like that, I think I love this place.

Apparently November 5th is National Doughnut Day, so if you need some motivation to get out to Portland for the sole purpose of stuffing your face full of Voodoo Doughnuts, you are just in time to book your trip! Offices give off work for holidays in the name of pastries, right?

If you can’t make it there for National Doughnut Day you can join in one of their monthly doughnut eating contests on the first Friday of every month. Clearly, this place does not mess around.

Thanks to flickr user jennvincent for sharing this tasty photo!

*Note: I googled Memphis Mafia because I had never heard of it before and Wikipedia defines it as “the nickname for a group of friends, associates, employees and “yes-men” whose main function was to be around Elvis Presley from 1954 until he died.” Noooow it makes sense… Elvis and his notorious pb sandwich inspired a peanut butter banana doughnut. Neat.

  • I am totally going by Voodoo after work for one of these. I might also get a dirty olde bastard which has Oreo and peanut butter too.

  • As an ex-Portlander now living in Seattle, I can say that one of the top ten things I miss about the city is late night donuts at Voodoo. My favorite is the “Grape Ape,” which is actually dusted with grape kool-aid. Talk about a blast from the past!
