Taste Test: The Maple Bacon Donut Bar by Voodoo Doughnut

Maple Bacon Donut Bar from Voodoo Doughnut (plus whiskey sauce)
Whiskey sauce is NOT a euphemism.

As becomes evident in this video, everybody who watches a food show on cable is apparently aware of Voodoo Doughnut. It’s apparently a completely bonkers donut place out of Portland, Oregon, that features an array of donuts that would make Wilford Brimley punch you in the face. I became aware of the monstrosity known as the maple bacon donut bar via Adam Savage’s Twitter, after he was tweeting about watching his wife eat one while driving. Because I am intrigued by desserts that sound like an affront to man and nature–and because I had theretofore not found a dessert that successfully incorporated bacon (for example), I publicly stated that I would like to try one.

Enter J.J. Hawkins, last seen around these parts on the pilot episode of Solve This and normally seen piloting the Mars Needs Podcasts podcast. He carted one all the way to Atlanta and bestowed it upon me pre-DragonCon, bless em. Jon Boutelle of The Unique Geek was on hand to record the madness. Bonus taste test of some port by PhantomV48 and Fleshvine.

Also–and this is just a note for the Voodoo Doughnut people or anybody else for that matter–note the photo here. Add some whiskey sauce normally reserved for bread pudding. It takes an already evil dessert and makes it downright satanic. I’m just saying.

  • Aaand now we need to learn how to make doughnuts.

    Glad (almost) everyone dug the BB port. Oddly enough we made the Banana Cream Porter with 2.5 bunches or so of bananas. All that came out of that was the banana smell, any of the banana taste came from the bottle of banana flavor we had to dump in.
