Whether you are a fan of Voodoo Doughnut or not, you must give them credit for creating donuts for all seasons. The Universal Orlando CityWalk location continues to offer seasonal treats to go with events at Universal Orlando.
It is spooky time at Universal Orlando having Halloween Horror Nights (HHN). In previous years, Voodoo has created some impressive frosting covered and/or sugary filled creations. This year, there two HHN themed donuts, Bride of Frankenstein, and Dracula’s Bite.
I decided to pass on the Dracula donut since it has cherry filling. If you like cherry filling, the red cherry color filling works well for that donut.
For my enjoyment, I selected a Bride of Frankenstein donut. I also purchased a regular menu donut that I thought would be a good comparison. This was the Cake Sprinkle donut.
The Bride donut was $3.75, and the cake sprinkle donut was $1.75. Both donuts were good.
I enjoy that at a theme park resort seasonal donuts are offered. The Bride donut is described as a marble cake donut dipped in chocolate and vanilla icing. The cake sprinkle donut is described as a plain cake doughnut with vanilla frosting and sprinkles. This serves as a good comparison.
The Bride donut seems to be half standard cake donut and half marble cake donut. Also, the frosting is half vanilla and half chocolate. Despite my poor photography skills, you should be able to see more marble cake appearance under the chocolate frosting portion. The marble cake portion had a nice taste especially being different than a standard cake donut. Overall, this donut is not a superstar on any donut menu.
It was enjoyable without overwhelming my sugar senses as Voodoo Doughnuts can often do.
I had a few concerns about this donut. It was smaller than a comparable cake donut, yet it was basically twice as much as the cake sprinkle donut.
The cake sprinkle donut had better tasting vanilla frosting for some reason. Now, I may be a sucker for sprinkles, but the topping was simply better than the Bride donut.
I did enjoy the Bride donut, but I do not think it was worth the increase in price even though it would demand more effort to make. I am a huge fan of Voodoo Doughnuts, but this offering was just okay based on value and taste.
