Just do that Voodoo that You Doo so well

Believe it or not, based on the last couple blogs are based on a single day.

Starting day two of my Denver Trip, Lauren and I drove across town to get a healthy breakfast for our Zoo Adventure ahead. Lauren has been wanting to go to Voodoo Doughnuts for awhile, and I'd seen them on Food Network, so of course I was game.


Plus, Doughnuts.

Voodoo has a long list of colorful, and slightly naughty desserts in their cash-only establishment, and I opted for a Maple Bacon Bar, a Mexican Hot Chocolate Cake doughnut, and the Voodoo Doll Doughnut, which was just as awesome as it sounds.


Filled with Raspberry Jam, with a Pretzel Stake in its heart. Delicious.

The Mexican Hot Chocolate Cake Doughnut had a MAJOR bite to it from cayenne and cinnamon, and it was not my favorite, but I'm definitely glad I tried it.

The Maple Bacon Bar was probably my favorite. It was a straight up yeast doughnut without filling, maple icing, and two strips of bacon. Holy. Freaking. Yum.

I really enjoyed visiting Voodoo, though I wish the parking was better (apparently Denver natives wish the same about everything in town). I do think I'll come back every time I visit. It is a CASH ONLY establishment, which they do have signs everywhere, and an ATM (which was out of order, but they had a list of nearby ATMs).

    1. Yeah! No parking, except on the street, though. We put 50 cents in the meter (30 minutes), and got back with two minutes to spare! Apparently there's a line out the door sometimes. But they're open 24/7!

It's no secret I love old Hollywood musicals. I even like bad musicals that have elements of Old Hollywood in them (Looking at YOU, Xana...
