The quirky and extremely creative doughnut shop that started in Portland, Oregon, and expanded nationwide, is now open in Chicago. Take a look.

Do You Know VooDoo?

 

The magic is in the hole.

VooDoo is like magic, just ask the doll.  Being controlled by some outside force. Be careful of the "magic hole", because once you fall in... You know the rest.

This wouldn't be the first time I've seen the 'fallen' walk right past me all zombie-like and rattle off a mixed dozen doughnut order without an "um" or an "ah" and walk straight back to their car.

I know the look, I know the walk, I've been one of the 'fallen' multiple times. Krispy Kreme, Dunkin, Hurts, Doughboy, By The Dozen Bakery, I've been under the spell of many magical doughnuts.

Even this outrageous Chicago fried chicken donut sandwich from Do-Rite Donuts on E. Erie Street.

I cannot wait to be under complete control of the VooDoo Doll that just arrived in Illinois, 2 miles southwest of the sandwich above.

The most-talked-about doughnut shop in America is here in Chicago.
