Portland’s own Voodoo Doughnut broke the Guinness World Record for biggest box of doughnuts at PDX Bridge Festival’s Brunch on the Bridge on Saturday, August 6, 2011, nearly tripling the previously held world record.
As locals know, good things come in pink boxes. Nearly 4,000 doughnuts, weighing in at 666 pounds (Voodoo Doughnut has the magic touch indeed) were loaded into a giant, pink, cardboard box measuring 7′ x 7′ x 4′. The box required a 27-foot flat bed truck to cart the giant sugar bomb to the Hawthorne Bridge. All that is left is to file the paperwork with Guinness and their world record will be officially certified, their place in history secured.
Congratulations, Voodoo Donuts and Portland sugar fiends!
