Portland’s famous Voodoo Doughnut shop is opening up a new location in Orlando, FL this spring. Universal Studios Orlando Resort is adding Voodoo Doughnut to its CityWalk plaza which features retail, dining, entertainment, and nightlife destinations.
Voodoo Doughnut became known for its over-the-top flavor combinations which have since inspired hundreds of pastry purveyors to experiment with extreme ingredients. Doughnuts topped with breakfast cereal and bacon are probably the company’s most copied contributions to confectionery.
While the full menu features dozens of doughnuts, here’s a description of the top five sellers:
This doughnut has become synonymous with Voodoo Doughnut. The idea for the signature creation was thought of well before the first Voodoo Doughnut shop opened its doors, but it took a while to find the right “doll pin.” Once the creators found the perfect pretzel, the rest was history. Filled with raspberry jelly, covered with chocolate frosting and topped with a pretzel stake.
Not only is this one of the first doughnuts that Voodoo Doughnut created, but it is also a tribute to the city of Portland, the shop’s first location. This creation is filled with Bavarian cream and topped with chocolate and two frosting eyeballs.
This doughnut was almost cut from the original Voodoo menu but after customers made an impassioned plea, it quickly became a fan favorite. A few fans have even gotten a tattoo in honor of the vanilla frosted doughnut covered with grape dust and lavender sprinkles.
Bacon Maple Bar
Covered with maple frosting and bacon on top, this doughnut is perfect for those who love savory mixed with sweet.

For the cereal lovers out there! This doughnut is covered with vanilla frosting and sweet and golden breakfast cereal with a fruity twist.
