Eat More Hole Foods

I specifically remember a time back in '01 when my BFF Rachael said, "I don't eat donuts, they go straight to your hips."

From that moment on, I didn't eat donuts either. I was definitely in my awkward stage.....I didn't own a straightener, my teeth had never met a whitening toothpaste and I thought turquoise eye shadow, heavy on the glitter, was the best thing ever. I didn't need big hips on top of it. 

Then, one day in October of 2015, Cole and I walked into Doughnut Plant in NYC and my life was forever changed. Something about that donut made me a donut freak. Lover. Aficionado. Connoisseur. I think I've had roughly 792 donuts since then.....and it wasn't all that long ago. 

No donut has come close to Doughnut Plant's absolute delicious mouth watering perfection until I met the Buttermilk Bar donut at VooDoo Doughnuts in Austin, Texas.*

Holy tastebuds, Batman. 

I can't stop thinking about it. Drooling over it. I've gone so far as to plan another quick weekend getaway to get my mouth around it again (that's what she said...).


Of course, VooDoo had other donuts, too. Crazy ones, at that.

We ordered an Old Dirty Bastard (lol) which was a yeast donut topped with chocolate frosting, Oreos and Peanut Butter. Because, is there a better combination in the entire universe than Oreos and Peanut Butter? I think not. Special thanks to LiLo for introducing the world to the best idea since sliced bread.

We also got a Dirty Snowball: A chocolate cake donut topped with marshmallow and dipped in coconut with a dollop of peanut butter in the middle.

Last but certainly not least, we got a classic blueberry cake donut because you just can't go wrong with those. From my experience, novelty donuts are fun to try, but the classics are always where its at.



Tips on Visiting VooDoo:

  • Peruse the menu on their website and know what you want before you get to the counter. They don't have a menu in store, per say, they just display all the donuts in a rotating case. And let's be real, every donut screams, "PICK ME! CHOOSE ME! LOVE ME!"
  • Research their busy times. Supposedly VooDoo can be subject to extremely long lines. We were lucky...we got there at 10 a.m. on a Friday and only had two people in front of us! Regardless of how long the line is, though, I think the donuts are worth the wait. 
  • Whatever you order, make sure you get that Buttermilk Bar. I promise, you won't be disappointed. 


Note: they also have locations in Portland, Oregon, and Denver, Colorado.
