Psycho Donuts on the Big Screen at Psycho Donuts

Looney Ben (aka Donut Guy)

Donut Guy was born in perilous times. Many Psycho fans may remember when protesters lined the Psycho Donuts parking lot, long before the APA ("Age of Psycho Acceptance").

During these dark, formative years for Donut Guy, two extraordinary filmmakers were conceiving the idea for an ambitious documentary film, tackling the sensitive topic of Bipolar Disorder. The filmmakers spent a weekend filming at Psycho Donuts.  They captured some crazy footage – which would ultimately become the 'comic relief' in an otherwise emotionally charged film - OF TWO MINDS.

OF TWO MINDS makes its San Jose premiere – ironically – at Psycho San Jose and The Camera 3 Theater (all under one crazy roof).  The film has received rave reviews at sell-out shows in Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco.  

Bloggers and journalists – check out our crazy press release for all the details.

"The Bipolar"
Psycho will re-launch The Bipolar Donut during OF TWO MINDS' San Jose premiere. A portion of Bipolar donut sales will directly benefit Loaves and Fishes Family Kitchen, where many residents suffer from Bipolar Disorder, and other forms of mental illness.

Showtimes are Saturday, December 1 at 7:00pm, and Sunday, December 2, at 1:00pm.  Buy your tickets online!

Make Your Thanksgiving a Crazy One

Good Kitty & Dead Kitty Nurses

Halloween subsides, and zombies give way to Pilgrims. And then, just as quickly, Pilgrims morph into Santas.  Along with these rapid holiday transitions, the donuts must also adapt. The Psycho kitchen goes utterly insane this time of year.  We’re talking about delicate migrations from Zombie Ballz to Punkin' Spice Lattes.

Punkin' Spice Latte!
It’s not unusual for things to be flipped backwards and upside down at Psycho Donuts.  For example, buy a Frosticle at Psycho Donuts, and you’ll find yourself drinking a donut (which is conveniently blended into the crazy drink).  Buy our Thanksgiving Punkin’ Spice Latte, and you’ll find yourself eating coffee. That’s because our Punkin’ Spice Latte is filled with spiced pumpkin, and topped with coffee and cinnamon.  And that’s just the start of our wild turkey line-up.

Drunkin' Punkin!'
The Drunkin' Punkin' is a crazy good donutrocity. We start with a bourbon-spiked pumpkin cake donut. We top it with cheesecake icing, fresh pecans, and a cross-hatch of maple and caramel drizzle. If the pilgrims knew about Drunkin’ Punkin’, they may have landed in Santa Cruz rather than Plymouth Rock.
Psycho Psweet Potato Pie!

And that’s not all.  Psycho fans love our Psweet Potato Pie. This crazed concoction is a raised donut topped with torched marshmallows, graham crackers, and a pumpkin spice filling.  

Our HeadBanger donut undergoes a radical metamorphosis this time of year, but the crazy concept has not changed.  

With a little psycho surgery, HeadBangers become TurkeyBanger and PilgrimBangers.  But don’t worry - the ‘entry wounds’ on this jelly-filled mess have not disappeared!

In the Psycho Ballz department, Chef Ron has recently created a new line of Donut Pops.  They work like this - take one crazy Psycho Ball, insert stick; and voila - the donut pop lives.  
Apple Pie and I Scream Donut Pops!

Nutella The Hun Pops!
For starters, check out the Apple Pie and I Scream Donut Pops. It'll give you the intense flavor of apple pie and vanilla ice cream all in a convenient Psycho Ball - on a smile-inducing stick.    

Pumpkin EmPIEnada!
How about a Nutella The Hun Pop?  All the Nutella-riffic flavors of our Hun masterpiece in a donut pop!

Still haven't had enough?  OK then - we'll save the best for last.  There's nothing like a donut empenada.  This Thanksgiving, try our Pumpkin EmPIEnada.  It's stuffed with pumpkin pastry cream, rolled in pumpkin pie spice sugar, and embellished in maple.

The Psycho PR department is insanely delighted to be included in a new forthcoming show on The History Channel.  Is Donut Guy getting added to American history textbooks?  Doubtful... but certainly a show about the evolution of breakfast foods seems worthy of a Donut Guy appearance.  Look for Psycho on The History Channel in Spring 2013!

Still haven’t been to Psycho Donuts?  Pay us a holiday visit.  We’ll have plenty of bubblewrap, and nurses catering to your prescription pastry pilgrimage.  The Chief Psycho wishes you a Crazy Good Thanksgiving season!
