PORTLAND, Ore. — Baseball, pickles and doughnuts … it doesn’t get more Portland than that.
Portland’s own Voodoo Doughnut has announced its latest addition to its already eccentric menu with the one-of-a-kind doughnut, the Portland Pickle.
The Portland Pickle doughnut was inspired by the Portland Pickles' mascot Dillon the Pickle. It features peanut butter frosting, pickle chips and a sriracha hot sauce drizzle.
The new doughnut coincides with a new partnership between Voodoo Doughnut and the Portland Pickles baseball team.
"Doughnuts and baseball are as American as you can get. Much like Voodoo, the Pickles aren’t afraid to shake things up and take a step away from the ordinary. We’re thrilled to team up with another organization that knows how to put a twist on classic traditions. We believe this partnership will hit it out of the park," said Sara Heise of Voodoo Doughnut.
Portland Pickles general manager Ross Campbell weighed in on the collaboration with Voodoo Doughnut, saying, "We are always striving to grow within this market. Beginning the relationship with Portland staples, such as Voodoo Doughnut, is important for our growth as a viable entertainment option for Portland residents during the summer."
Voodoo Doughnut will begin selling the Portland Pickle doughnut out of their pink mobile truck on Friday, July 12 when the Pickles face off against the San Francisco Seals. Fans can also purchase limited edition Voodoo Doughnut and Portland Pickles co-branded shirts.
Voodoo Doughnut founders Kenneth "Cat Daddy" Pogson and Tres Shannon will also be in attendance to throw out the first pitch.
