Anyone got a Crazy Dad?

Crazy donuts for your crazy dad! Get your dad one of our insane Father's Day pspecials from Psycho Donuts this weekend.

Our psycho research department has concluded that dads want game food on Father's Day in the form of 4 food groups: Beer, nuts, pretzels, chocolate. It doesn't take much to make dads happy. And Psycho has swooped in to help!

Beer Nuts covers three of the four dad food groups. It's a raised donut, filled with beer (ummmm, beer...). OK, not just beer. It's a Rogue Mocha Porter pastry creme with malt extract, to be exact. To complete this dysfunctional dad delectable, we top it with chocolate icing, beer nuts, and a multi-flavor drizzle beer mug on top.

We almost stopped there, but realized we hadn't covered the pretzel food group. So we invented the Dulce de Psycho. This dyslexic donut is filled with a caramel and dulce de leche pastry creme. It's topped off with chocolate icing, pretzels, and chocolate drizzle.

Psycho has seen its share of press attention, for an amazing array of reasons. We've been covered by almost every local news and morning show in the Bay Area, and even in national press. But in Sacramento? Not so much. So we were both surprised and excited when Julissa Ortiz of CW31's Good Day Sacramento inquired about filming LIVE at Psycho Donuts Campbell. Why not let Sacramentoans (Sacramentites? Sacramentilians?) live vicariously... We're thrilled to welcome Good Day Sacramento to Psycho Campbell on Friday morning, filming live between 7:00am - 10:00 am. Come for a donut, and maybe you'll launch your tv career with a cameo appearance in Sacramento!

And speaking of press attention, Psycho continues to get great write-ups, near and far. We were recently reviewed in The San Francisco Examiner by journalist Amelia Albanese. And Cameron Sampson blogged his heart out with some crazy insights.

A crazy thanks to all of our contestants who participated in our 2nd Annual Donut Pizza Eating Contest on June 3. A pspecial
Psycho congratulations to the winner, Dax Swanson - the only contestant to actually finish the entire donut pizza, in ten minutes and change.

Snapshot Ninja captured this great image of Dax, post-ingestion. Dax captured the ordeal in all it's glory. Check it out!

Psycho Donuts recently hooked up with J. Lohr winery on National Donut
Day, for a donuts and wine pairing event, at J. Lohr's winery in San Jose. Chef Ron prepared 4 varieties of custom donuts holes, to pair with
each of 4 hand-selected J. Lohr wines. The event sold out, and people are already asking about the next wine and donuts event. Stay tuned for details! A pspecial thanks to Mary Hrkac and the crazy pstaff at J. Lohr!
