Would You Like Bacon With That?

Before our 13.5 hour drive home from Oregon, we stopped at the famous Voodoo Doughnut store in Old Town Portland.  They are famous for wacky-topped doughnuts with unique (and sometimes irreverent) names.  But what intrigued us most was their Bacon Maple Bar.  I just had to try it.  Brent and the boys waited in the 30+ minute line outside in the cold and brought our orders to the car.  I was expecting little bacon bits sprinkled on an ordinary maple bar.  No.  These were substantial good quality slices of bacon over fresh, thick homemade maple icing.

 Sounds pretty gross, huh?  But think about a nice ham with that yummy sweet glaze on top.  It works.  Or think about your pancake and bacon breakfast, with the maple syrup spilling over onto the bacon.

This is the Voodoo Doll.  It is filled with raspberry jelly, so you can poke it with the pretzel "stake" and see the ooze.

Oli says that Day's Market in Provo sells these types of unique doughnuts.  Maybe I"ll have to try their version of the Bacon Maple Bar for comparison.

  1. Glad you're back safely. Just last week on the radio I heard someone talking about that bacon-maple donut. I think, however, I would go for the Voodoo Doll Donut! Chocolate with Raspberry oozing out...delish!
