No not really

Has anyone been to Voodoo Doughnuts?  They have two locations in Portland, Oregon, "Voodoo Doughnuts" and Voodoo Doughnuts Too" and one in Eugene, Oregon, "Voodoo Tres".  The doughnut shop has been featured on some of the Travel Channel shows, as well as some other televsions shows.  Their doughnuts are really good and quite unusual.  I've been told that people wait in line for hours.  We were lucky when we were there, the wait was only about twenty minutes or so.  You can find their doughnuts on their website.

Voodoo Doughnuts has been featured on the Travel Channel's Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations,[13] Man v. FoodDoughnut Paradise,[14] and G4's Attack of the Show, as well as the Pacific Northwest edition of Globe Trekker.[15] It was a destination in the season finale of the 13th season of The Amazing Race.

In 2010, television documentary The Simpsons 20th Anniversary Special – In 3-D! On Ice! featured a segment in which filmmaker Morgan Spurlock paid a visit to the Voodoo Doughnut Too location.

Jay Leno included Voodoo Doughnut in a Tonight Show opening monologue: "Did you hear about the doughnut shop in Portland, Oregon, that has caffeinated doughnuts? Yeah, I guess you can stay awake during your bypass surgery."[16] Voodoo Doughnut would later be mentioned again whenAmanda Seyfried appeared on the show in support of her 2012 film, Gone.

The shop's doughnuts, including the distinctive box, appeared in a fourth-season episode of theTNT drama series Leverage. This episode of the show, which films in Portland, was the first actually set in that city. Additionally, the pink box has appeared in the second episode of series one of Grimm and the episode Like a Virgin of Supernatural.

Yes ma'am. SIL and I stopped on our way back from Portland (went up for Rockfest in 2011). Bacon maple bars are the shiz.

My favorite, so far, is the Memphis Mafia.  I've had their doughnuts twice.  Once a friend brought two back for my daughter and myself.  The other time we were in Portland for softball camp.  We've tried the ones pictured and the one with bubblegum.

What one is your favorite?  Is the one in Eugene as crazy as the ones in Portland?

 I like the one that tastes like grape, and the oreo one. They are just as crazy here.
