REVIEW: Jurassic Doughnut from Voodoo Doughnut at Universal CityWalk is a Delightful Take on a Classic
A new doughnut in honor of the newly-released “Jurassic World: Dominion” has debuted for a limited time from Voodoo Doughnut at Universal CityWalk in Orlando and Hollywood, available now through June 25.
Jurassic World Doughnut – $3.50
Yeast shell filled with blueberry filling, topped with vanilla frosting and Jurassic World logo
This was advertised to have vanilla frosting with black food coloring but when we received it, but it was just straight chocolate. The theming comes solely from the edible decal on the front.
Really, it’s a fairly straightforward jelly doughnut with blueberry filling, but it’s the very best version of a classic treat. In just about every doughnut shop around the world, you’ll find blueberry jelly doughnut, but Voodoo Doughnuts are just the pinnacle, even for classics. There’s plenty of rich chocolate frosting and they didn’t skimp on the jelly filling, which is admirable. There’s nothing worse than a jelly doughnut with hardly any jelly in it.
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed this, and while the theming doesn’t really bring anything else in flavor or excitement, it’s a nice little touch to enjoy after seeing the movie at the Universal Cinemas nearby.
We tried ours at Universal CityWalk Hollywood, but the same doughnut is available in Orlando as well (though it’s $3.75 there). But what do you think? Let us know in the comments below!
