Happiness is Shared Donuts

Voodoo DoughnutThere is a quote on the wall of VooDoo Doughnuts. It states that Americans consume more doughnuts during times of war than any other time. Being in a gloomy frame of mind, and feeling as though we’ve never not been at war, this was just the excuse I needed to pick up a sugary feel good treat.

For $8, Voo Doo will grab you a random 13 donuts, half classic, half crazy. I got a cereal and peanut covered one, and a chocolate with chocolate cereal balls for some of the crazies. On my way to the bus stop I gave away the top most donut,a big cream filled bar, to a stranger. The simple act of being a sugar fairy made me feel better already.

Coming home I snipped up the rest of the donuts with scissors to take over to our neighbors. While portioning the treats into smaller pieces, I discovered that I got more than 13 donuts in my order. Is this a sign that we, as a nation, are in more dire need for donuts than I realized?

Instead, I’ll take it as a reminder that donut love shared is donut love multiplied.

OH, Voodoo Doughnuts! I just went to this place for the first time and knew I had found a kindred spirit of a doughnut shop. I just did a doughnut review for Seattle so now they’re my major obsession. Top Pot here in Seattle (they sell some flavors thru Starbucks nationwide, but have stores here) has a doughnut called the “Sandcastle” which is slightly “gritty” with a cinnamon sugar mixture which is so-o-o good. Oh, doughnuts. Or donuts, whatever. Just Donut, either way.

(By the way I came across your blog through being fascinated by your name on a comment you put on another blog. I love your style!)

Hi Cakespy,
I always enjoy the sense of humor that can come through in a donut shop- and Voodoo Doughnuts delivers!
Though I have to admit… I think we may have overdosed on donuts this weekend.
