modoo donuts | buena park
After Korean BBQ at Mr BBQ, we hit up a nearby shop called My D-Pins and Collectibles to check out some Funko Pops. This shop had TONS of Disney pins. I didn’t even know Disney pins was a THING. Shows you how much I know. After collectible browsing, I wanted to hit up a nearby donut shop before we headed home. Modoo Donuts held the promise of cute donuts and I couldn’t resist popping up for a few donuts.
Modoo Donuts. Sounds so close to Voodoo Donuts in my head. No voodoo donuts here though.
On second thought, I keep saying it as “Mooooo” Doo which is probably wrong. But oh well. I’d rather pretend this a cow donut shop.
So many donuts.
They had two racks out full of donuts.
Mostly a pretty typical offering. There was an older Asian lady working behind the counter at MoDoo Donuts. She was nice enough but couldn’t seem to hear me very well (or maybe didn’t understand me very well) as I had to tell her which donuts I wanted more than once.
There was also a bit of confusion on the price. I wasn’t even paying attention and shelled out $11.25 for 5 donuts. Jake did the math in his head (something I can’t do in my head) and realized I was overcharged by $3. There was a lot of confusion between the lady and Jake trying to explain to her the price. I think she maybe… added two extra donuts in? Maybe? I have no idea but eventually we were able to work it out and she gave me back cash to make up for the overcharge.
Here’s our box of donuts: Fruity Pebbles donut ($1.75), a strawberry crueller ($1), a piggy donut (oink oink! – $1.75), a Minion donut ($1.75) plus a Tiger Tail ($2) which was in another bag.
The Fruity Pebbles donut was for T and I didn’t actually try it since Fruity Pebbles are not my thing. The strawberry crueller was light and airy and quite tasty. The piggy donut was also a light, airy, raised donut covered in pink strawberry frosting. I didn’t eat the marshmallow parts. I thought this could have looked a bit more piggy like but I thought it was cute just the same.
The Minion donut was incredibly cute and something I gave to one of my co-workers (who agreed to be one of my new
minions, errr, writers for the blog in the near future). She said the top frosting was a bit too sweet but she enjoyed the actual donut on it own. Hooray!
We ate the Tiger Tail on the way home. The tiger tail is like a twist donut with a cinnamon swirl in the middle.
The donut tasted freshly made and had a wonderful crunch from the glaze. The cinnamon swirl was delightful – just enough cinnamon parts to pair with the rest of the plain twist donut. It tasted so airy and light. It melted in my mouth – I really enjoyed it!
They also had cute Cookie Monster donuts as well as banana fritters and blueberry fritters. If we’re ever in the area again I’ll be back for another Tiger Tail and to maybe try one of those fritters!
