Who Needs Another Valentines Day Celebration

Vote for Psycho Donuts in the categories of Best Donut Shop, Best Desserts, and Best Bakery in the Metro's Annual Best of Awards. Cast your vote before February 20!

At Psycho Donuts, we can't do anything level-headed; and that holds true on Valentine's Day. We hallucinated that many people are sans lover on this romantic day; and why should they suffer while the lovebirds are out paying twice the normal restaurant price for a romantic dinner?

So this Valentine's season, join us on our Psycho Path; and let's celebrate the underdogs of love.

It all begins with our Anti-Valentine's Day art show:

Love / Hate - An Anti-Valentine Art Pspectacle!
Show Runs January 24 - Feb 27
Artist's Open House - Sun Feb 12 from 10am - 3pm!

Looking for a Célébration De L'amour? Sorry, wrong place! With an uncommon theme of "Love Lost," this is the art show you'd expect from the world's most unusual donut shop!

Spurned by a lover? Feeling the pain of love? If the answer to these questions is yes, then donut miss this CrAzY art show! You'll find original paintings by local artists, some starting as low as $40! Artwork will be available to purchase between January 24 - Feb 27 at Psycho Donuts Campbell.

Check out the latest original work from local artists like Christine Benjamin, Nic Caesar, Murphy Adams, Carlos Villez, Jen Renzel, John Hagaman, Kori Thompson, Anthony Barbaria, Valery Milovic, Michael Foley, Lacey Bryant, and more! Meet many of these artists in person at our Love / Hate Artist's Open house on Sunday, February 12. Maybe you can learn what really inspired the insane painting you're about to purchase.

Whether you're simply lost in love or cast aside by love, our Psycho nurses have just the prescription for you. Love has never felt so bad, or tasted so good. Speaking of which...

What kinds of donuts might the Psychos create for those who are unlucky in love, you might ask? Well, for starters, there is our annual favorite...

Blue Ballz!

Say it a few times; get comfortable with the idea; because you know you want 'em! After all, they're just innocent, custard-filled, blue Psycho Ballz.

Blue Ballz hasn't scared you away yet? Then let's move on! Anti-Valentine's Day wouldn't be complete without:

Shot Thru the Heart!

If you donut get to Psycho Donuts to try one, you're to blame! This heart-shaped donut is pierced through the heart with an evil chocolate pocky stick. The heart is oozing with raspberry jelly, and blood-red drizzle leaks ominously from the pocky-inflicted wound. Think of it as the Headbanger for the loveless.

Everyone remembers those sweethearts candies. You remember... the heart-shaped candies with the cute and lovable slogans. Chef Ron decided to donutize sweetheart candies; only with slight twist (as if making a donut version of Sweethearts wasn't already pretty twisted).


Give it to someone you really don't like on Valentine's Day (or someone you love with a sense of humor?). Not-So-Sweethearts come with memorable slogans like "I H8 U," "DOOSH," and other poetic anomalies, helping you to express your real feelings this Valentine's Day!

And there ya have it. Valentine's Day is not just for lovers anymore. Check out the Love / Hate art show through February 27 at Psycho Campbell, along with our Love / Hate Artist's Open House on Sunday Feb 12. And donut miss our insane line-up of loveless donutrocities at Psycho Campbell and Psycho San Jose!

Farewell Furry Flurry

Farewell to the fanatical flurry of furry fandom (say that 10 times!). Psycho Donuts San Jose was a lightning rod for our new furry friends who came to this year's Further Confusion Conference! Wolves, tigers, tails, and crazy creatures with wing spans of 10 feet long all walked the Psycho plank and enjoyed some tasty Psycho morsels.

What drove the furries into Psycho Donuts was Animal Parts! Furries exercised cannibalistic tendencies, with a voracious appetite for Tails and even Ballz. Tigers and zebras were running scared, as the Psycho kitchen scrambled to harvest an ample supply of ballz to satisfy furry demand.

And that wasn't all! Psycho Donuts was invited to judge the Furry Talent Show on the last night of the conference.

Nurses Micaela and Siobhan exercised their judicial skills masterfully, making critical furry talent decisions. Psycho was honored to be among the esteemed panel of judges for the event.

Psycho looks forward to another crazy furry conference next year!

And speaking of strange events and themed balls, anyone catch the Michael Jackson Immortal show at The HP Pavilion this past weekend? Psycho Donuts was prepared with extra helping of MJ Ballz for all concert goers. What better way to supplement your Michael Jackson tribute concert!

A Psuper Psycho thanks to Eye on the Bay, for including Psycho Donuts in their Day Trip San Jose episode on Thursday night, January 12. The Psycho psecret is no more!

Donutize This! Furries, Elvis, and The King of Pop

It's a Crazy New Year at Psycho Donuts, and we are gearing up for another year of insane donutrocities. The Psycho Facebook Fan page crossed the 10,000 Likes, just as the New Years ball dropped in New York. Facebook fan Joe Casteneda claims he was Psycho Fan 10,000, but other Psycho fans expressed outrage, accusing Joe of a "Floridian George Bush-like move." The public may never know the truth.

CBS Channel 5's Eye on the Bay has been practically living at
Psycho Donuts. Producer Chris Bolini recently put together this inventive segment about Psycho Donuts. And toon in to KCBS Channel 5, Thursday January 12 at 7pm; when a completely different segment about Psycho Donuts will make it's Eye on the Bay TV debut.

Here come The Furries! The annual Furry convention, Furrther Confusion, returns to Downtown San Jose, starting on Thursday January 12. Furries and Psychos are a match made in purgatory; and for this reason, we have created some Psycho Pspecialties in honor of our Pfurry Pfriends.

Starting on Wednesday, January 11, stop at Psycho Donuts and check out our Zebra Parts. We'll be serving up both Zebra Tails and Zebra Ballz. Zebras not your thing? Then try our Tiger Parts, in your choice of Tiger Tails or Tiger Ballz. Topped with orange icing and chocolate stripes, Tiger Tails (and Ballz!) will bring out the feline in furries and non-furries alike. Psycho Donuts is also thrilled to be judging the notorious Furry Talent Show, for a second year in a row.

And speaking of felines, did you make it to Psycho San Jose for our CATS Nurse Transformation event? Make-up guru Jimmy Goode and cast members of the musical CATS were on hand, quickly transforming our own Siobhan into a CAT Nurse. Rumor has it that Siobhan will now be starring in a remake of the movie Catwoman. Psycho thanks to KGO Radio reporter Rob Artigo for covering the event, and to our friends at Broadway San Jose for the crazy concept.

Hopefully you had the chance to taste our Kitty Litter donut while CATS was in town. If you were too scared this time around, it's likely that the Kitty will "rear" it's ugly head again in 2012.

In crazy celebrity news, Elvis will celebrate another birthday this Sunday, January 8. Are you the real Elvis? If so, come to Psycho Donuts in full costume and swagger, and get a free donut of your choice on Elvis' birthday. For everyone else, we'll be serving up our infamous Dead Elvis Donut on Sunday, while supplies last

And not to be outdone by The King of Rock n Roll, The King of Pop is another celebrity who seems to have escaped death. Case in point, catch the Michael Jackson Immortal show at The HP Pavilion on January 13 - 14. In honor of the show, the Psycho kitchen will be ramping up production of our Michael Jackson donuts and MJ Ballz. Stop at Psycho Donuts on January 13 or 14 dressed as The King of Pop, and get The Michael Jackson or MJ Ballz for half price, while supplies last.
