'Caffeine Doughnut' Cuts Out Need For Coffee

Portland, OR -- It's an understatement to say the doughnuts are a little different at Voodoo Doughnut in Portland, Oregon.

The late night haunt caters to an after-hours crowd that's willing to wrap their gums around doughnuts shaped like voodoo dolls or flavored with Tang.

Store co-owner Kenneth Pogson says he even used to sell doughnuts glazed with Robitussin, Ny-Quil and Pepto-Bismol, before the FDA cracked down on him.

One of the oddest doughnuts currently on sale is a pastry filled with 100 mg of caffeine -- equal to about a cup-and-a-half of coffee. Pogson says the combo is for people who don't have time to drink coffee with their doughnuts.

You might think a place that serves caffeine-filled doughnuts would be a haven for cops, but Pogson says police avoid Voodoo Doughnuts like the plague.

He says the officers he's spoken with are "totally afraid" of being stereotyped as chubby slobs who swill coffee and stuff their faces with fatty pastries.
