Slightly over four years ago, a Portland based doughnut shop, opened a location at Universal Orlando CityWalk. This themed doughnut place already had a location at Universal Studios Hollywood. This doughnut place, Voodoo Doughnuts, quickly fit in nicely at Universal Orlando Resort. The queues for these doughnuts can grow long depending on time of day. In recent months, a separate mobile order pickup area was designed for guests.
Currently, Voodoo Doughnut sells over fifty different types of doughnuts. Thirteen of those doughnuts classify as vegan doughnuts. As a result of this place, a strange idea developed in the minds of the Universal Food Blog team. What would it be like to eat most of these doughnuts at Voodoo Doughnuts all at once?

With it being Fat Tuesday, we cannot go without talking about a classic. The French settlers brought beignets with them as they migrated to the eastern coast of Canada to an area called Acadia in the 17th century. Unfortunately, many Acadians were forced to migrate as the British came to control their area. As a result, many Arcadians settled in Louisiana. Their descendants became known as Cajuns. With their migration to the southern USA, they brought their culture, language,and cuisine. The mighty beignet continues to display that cuisine. During this time of year, you can find beignets in many places. Today, we are going to decide which beignets are better between the 2022 Universal Studios Florida Mardi Gras version in comparison to Disney’s Port Orleans Resort version.

Mardi Gras season at Universal Orlando brings parades, a new Tribute Store, costumed performers, brass bands, major concert events, and of course food. Over the last two years of Mardi Gras, the food offerings expanded in a magnificent way taking over several sections of Universal Studios Florida. This year Universal Orlando brought guests a fully dedicated vegan food tent. In case guests missed the theme of this food tent in Springfield USA area, they decorated the tent with lots of plant décor. However, that tent only contains some of the designed vegan options this year.
Having tried all the official vegan options offered at Mardi Gras this year, I will rank them in terms of quality. You might disagree with my individual ranking. Please bear in mind I consulted with several other people before compiling this list. Half of them dine exclusively vegan. Whereas the other half dine vegan periodically or in limited ways. Surprisingly enough, the perspectives of my reliable sources pretty much matched my rankings of these vegan items.
