The rumor started over a year ago, and Voodoo Doughnut has finally rolled into town -- with the location at 1520 East Colfax Avenueslated to open later this month. "We're bringing the circus to town," says Tres Shannon, who founded the Portland-based chain with Kenneth "Cat Daddy" Pogson. "And Denver jumped out to us as a spot that has the Voodoo vibe." And doughnut fans in Denver agree.

Says Denver Dave:

After a recent extremely disappointing trip down memory lane at Dunkin', I can't wait for Voodoo. Hope their creations are worth an occasional fat and calorie splurge -- DD's certainly weren't.
While you wait for Voodoo to open, where are you getting your doughnut fix? Was Dunkin' Donuts worth the wait?

Im ready. DD has quick bake donuts. They bake in 1 minute and 25 seconds. Yuck.

Dolores Thompson-Franco, you will have to let us know how these are! Sounds quite interesting.

and how is it that voodoo donuts will make it big when crispy creme, which every one was all excited for, rolled into town with so much fan fare and ended up closing some of it's locations? maybe keeping it small and to one location is the answer...

I am in Portland right now and can rightly say that Voodoo is king.  Comparing Voodoo to Dunkin is just insane.  Dunkin is the McDonalds of donuts while Voodoo is in a league they made all their own and its awesome.   Hopefully Denver will next push to change zoning laws to get food cart pods like Portland has.  It would be a huge boom for small business.  Then we will need a Potato Champion to round it all out.

There's no comparison. Voodoo blows em all away! Can't wait.

Cue the comments that Denver Dave is obviously a hipster/foodie/elitist snob who's too snobby to realize that Dunkin' Donuts is amazing and can do no wrong in 3, 2, 1...
