Reader: Voodoo Doughnuts is Dunkin' Donuts with cereal on top

When we shared a Denver Blogs post highlighting Cafe Society's latest piece about Voodoo Doughnuts, we asked if the eatery lives up to the hype, and the response was huge. Here's the take of a reader on the negative side of the fence.

Jeff Greenswag writes:

Definitely NOT...they are Dunkin Donuts with cereal and or flavored sugar on top. I guarantee with the amount of dope I smoke that had I worked at a DD I'd have come up with a way better donut concept shop.

Place is most overrated thing in existence; had to work hard to trump casa bonita but it did! The lack of menus + 12 font menu on the wall noone can read while in line, the overpriced fare, the crappy fructrose and chemical laden toppings, the cash only +slow ATM,the 1 hour line in the cold, the 666 uniforms, the "we choose what you get" voodoo dozen etc makes this place a mockery to what real entreprenuers struggle to do everyday. I was there for an hour and had nothing close to "fun" only kept asking myself "how the hell are they staying in business!?"

You guys will all be over the Voodoo donut craze just like you are over Krispy Kream phase. Had Voodoo out here in Eugene for years and there is hardly ever a long line.

Voodoo is way better than Dunkin'! That's just crazy to say they compare.

Dunkin Donuts sucks....worst spot in Denver for a donut...winchells, lamars, donut hut, yummys are all better ....having said that....I liked Voodoo as well

It's a donut, I'm not waiting in line for 40 minutes for fried pastry. Sorry.

The fact that this person would state that with the amount of dope they smoke... Makes their opinion invalid. I thought it was worth the 20 minute wait. I felt sorry for the man in front of me that was so stoked to get some & his twat of a female companion wouldn't stop bitching about the line.

I waited in line for 40 minutes yesterday and it was totally worth it because as a vegan it's hard to find raised donuts.

DISAGREE. Voodoo makes their Donuts in store, whereas Dunkin gets theirs shipped from regional factories. Voodoo uses better ingredients and offers vegan options. (Also it's wayy more fun!)

Coming from an area where we have tons of dunkins( and they are better than the one here) it's not the same at all. The dough is much better and they use different icings and glazes that are higher quality.

It's pretty funny to drive down Colfax on a weekend morning and see herds of hipster dipshits lined up and waiting for hours for a box of donuts. The idiots waiting in line actually think of themselves as "cultural creatives" but they are just as herd-like as any other sociological in-group. 


Keep telling yourselves that your beards and styles of jeans are avant garde and non-conformist while smoking cigarettes and waiting hours in line for trendy, over-hyped breakfast pastries, by all means. In ten years you will cringe with embarrassment when forced to look at your old "selfies". The hipster lifestyle will be seen as just as idiotic and pathetic as 80s hair metal or Goth is today.
