Maple Bacon at Voodoo Doughnut

My first taste of this pairing of Canadian ingredients occurred in the United States at At Forty Five Eat Delicious Voodoo DoughnutVoodoo Doughnut. Such a sensory experience on all levels, their eclectic vibe and outlandish offerings have people lining up, down the street even at three in the morning. The Pepto-Bismol pink interiors filled with kitschy art and brass chandeliers keep your head turning as you take it all in.  At Forty Five Eat Delicious Voodoo Doughnut

You will need the time to digest all the flavours and settle on one. Peach tang, pop rock candy and fruit loop toppings are blasts from your childhood past. The pink pastry case ensconces layers of tempting tastes, with something for everyone. Their cakey, supersize offerings nestled in signature pink boxes are worth the wait. They are not stingy with the bacon or any other toppings. Addicting, one may not be enough.

Voodoo Doughnut is a fast growing chain. You can find them in Portland, Austin, Denver and Taipei, Taiwan. Not in Canada yet, hopefully it is only a matter of time. Screamingly different than Tim Hortons or your local avant garte doughnuteries, Voodoo Doughnut is an experience.
