It's an understatement to say the doughnuts are a little different at Voodoo Doughnut in Portland, Oregon.

The late night haunt caters to an after-hours crowd that's willing to wrap their gums around doughnuts shaped like voodoo dolls or flavored with Tang.

Store co-owner Kenneth Pogson says he even used to sell doughnuts glazed with Robitussin, Ny-Quil and Pepto-Bismol, before the FDA cracked down on him.

One of the oddest doughnuts currently on sale is a pastry filled with 100 mg of caffeine -- equal to about a cup-and-a-half of coffee. Pogson says the combo is for people who don't have time to drink coffee with their doughnuts.
