Famous Voodoo Doughnut Creates a Pink Princess Power Doughnut
Internationally famous Voodoo Doughnut has created a special Pink Princess Power doughnut as a tribute to the 2014 Rose Festival Court. Recently co-owners Tres Shannon and Kenneth ‘Cat Daddy’ Pogson were excited to discover they had ‘royalty’ among their employees: Princess Isabella (of Franklin High School). “We’re proud of the young women representing the magical mystical world of Rosaria.”
Pink Princess Power doughnuts will be available to the public exclusively at both Voodoo Doughnut ONE and Voodoo Doughnut Too, starting Friday, May 16 through Monday, June 30.
Shaped like a crown and covered in pink icing with a tasty filling, the crafty confectioners at Voodoo are happy with their creation — but they wanted to do even more for the Princesses. So they came up with a generous idea: For every Pink Princess Power doughnut sold, Voodoo Doughnut will donate 50 cents to the Portland Rose Festival Foundation.
Voodoo Doughnut — now with four stores (two in Portland, one in Eugene and one in Denver, Colorado) — opened the original location (at 22 SW 3rd Avenue just off Burnside) back in 2003. Now considered a national tourist destination, scores of people line up to be served. With their slogan ‘the Magic is in the Hole,’ Voodoo Doughnut is known for (sometimes unconventional) specialty items, such as the Voodoo Doll doughnut, the Bacon Maple Bar doughnut and the Grape Ape doughnut (to name only a few). The 2014 Court will visit Voodoo Doughnut Too on Friday, June 6 to sample these doughnuts, fresh from the fryer!
