With a whole day to celebrate everyone’s favorite pastry, doughnut-lovers need look no further than Universal CityWalk and Universal Studios Hollywood to get their fill on National Doughnut Day, which takes place on Friday, June 1.

Between the open-air entertainment complex and theme park, guests have plenty to
celebrate with lots of sweet indulgence in all shapes and sizes at Voodoo Doughnut, Sparky’s Mini Donuts, and Springfield’s famous Lard Lad Donuts. Guests can also capture their love of donuts at the recently-opened retail shop, Nectar Bath Treats which features a delicious “Donut Love” photo op wall display and selection of donut-inspired soaps.

The ever-popular Voodoo Doughnut, created by Kenneth “Cat Daddy” Pogson and Tres
Shannon, serves a range of 60 eclectic doughnuts, including vegan options and the Hollywood
Cream, created exclusively for Universal CityWalk. A variety of scrumptious flavored doughnuts
include Grape Ape, Mango Tango, the Voodoo Bubble and Bacon Maple Bar as well as their
signature Voodoo Doll. To commemorate National Doughnut Day, Voodoo Doughnut will also
offer an exclusive Strawberry Confetti doughnut throughout the weekend, from June 1-3.

Mmmmm donut! Who doesn’t love them, and at Universal Studios Hollywood, guests visiting Springfield, hometown of America’s favorite animated family, the Simpsons, can delight in the sweet circular treat – LARD LAD DONUTS, an amazing cooked cake confection made fresh daily. Selections include “The Big Pink” famous giant creamy pink-frosted sprinkled donut,
and the “Flavor of the Day” giant donuts, including Maple Bacon, Chocolate Glazed and
S’mores. Sparky’s Mini Donuts was created by food entrepreneur Trish Conklin and made famous at San Francisco’s Pier 39. At the Universal CityWalk location, guests can watch donuts made fresh to order right before their eyes where they are served plain or sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. A party-size bucket of 36 mini donuts is also available.

For a unique and captivating experience, Nectar Bath Treats creates bakery-inspired
products that look good enough to eat. Their plant-based and cruelty-free handmade bath treats include donut-shaped soaps complete with a variety of scents and sprinkles, including Candy Kiss, featuring a sweet blend of pink sugar and cotton candy aromas; Coco Bliss, featuring the perfect blend of juicy pineapple an exotic coconut scent, and Razzle Dazzle, featuring a blend of blackberries and sweet vanilla fragrances.

Voodoo Doughnut Sweetens Up Universal CityWalk - Opening Fall 2016

Earlier this week my family and I took a trip to Universal CityWalk to have dinner at our favorite family restaurant, Johnny Rockets and to check out an early screening of Disney's Alice Through the Looking Glass. It was so much fun seeing my girl's faces as they saw all the fun and bright stuff that City Walk offers. If you follow me on Snapchat (Kindasillymommy) then you may have seen this Snap. 

Yes, world famous Voodoo Doughnut is expanding to its first-ever California location at Universal CityWalk™, located adjacent to Universal Studios Hollywood, The Entertainment Capital of L.A.

“We are beyond thrilled to open Voodoo Doughnut at Universal CityWalk and share our menu of fabulous, unconventional doughnuts with the world at the top entertainment destination in Los Angeles,” said Voodoo Doughnut owner, Kenneth “Cat Daddy” Pogson. “Our signature and one-of- a-kind doughnuts are the perfect complement to CityWalk’s over-the- top vibrancy.”

The new Voodoo Doughnut shop will find its sweet spot at the inimitable Universal CityWalk, located near the “5 Towers” outdoor concert stage and adjacent to the Universal Cinemas, currently under renovation and also slated to debut this fall.

The Pogson-Shannon team raised the bar in doughnut creation in 2003 by experimenting with an array of unusual ingredient combinations to create a broad selection of exquisite doughnuts that range from Bacon Maple Bar doughnut to the Grape Ape doughnut and the Mango Tango.

I can't wait to try some of these amazing flavors that everyone keeps talking about and I'm so glad that I don't have to jump on a plane to try them.  Universal City Walk is the perfect home for Voodoo Doughnut, the bright vibrant colors and flavors will fit right in.
