Sinfully-Delicious Treats for HHN31
Universal Orlando Resort has cooked up a "killer" menu this fall featuring more than 75 items. This year's food is inspired by the season by the horrifying lineup of terror guests will brave at Halloween Horror Nights 2022.

Universal's Great Movie Escape
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?
