StonerBowl and Anti-Valentines

What were the odds?  Denver vs Seattle.  Which side are you on?  And by that, I don't mean the Broncos vs the Seahawks...  We 'donut' pick sides at Psycho Donuts, but we sure like it when current events are just right for a crazy new donut.  We hope you enjoy the Super, er, Stoner-Bowl this weekend.  And we hereby announce our latest current event donut, this weekend only...

The Psycho PstonerBowl!

We've heard it's the favorite donut of James Blunt!  It's one half football, and another half-legal. Although you can only have so much fun with our PstonerBowl, because no medicinal herbs were harmed in the creation of this donut.  That may not stop you from eating a dozen of them.

Quantities will be limited.  Call the Nurse on Duty to preorder at (408) 378-4540!

The crazy innovation continues at Psycho Donuts, and the local press is paying attention; so a quick shout out to Lauren Hepler at The Silicon Valley Business Journal for this great article, and also this one.  And to Jackie Burrell at The Bay Area News Group for covering our new Gluten Free-Range line-up.

Let's move on and disgust Valentines Day... Love is in the air, and happy couples walk in a drunken stupor of Cupid's arrow.  Right up until they enter Psycho Donuts...  Because Valentine's Day at Psycho Donuts is opposite day.  If you're not lost in love, but rather, have lost your love, then our nurse on duty has just the donut prescription for you this year.

Blue Ballz with a side of Bawls!
Above, Nurse Aleena is modeling alongside our, ahem, Blue Ballz. They're topped in Smurf-blue icing, and filled with custard.  Better than a stiff drink at a dive bar, Blue Ballz will cure what ails you this Valentine's Day.  Pick up a bottle of Bawls to accompany your Blue Ballz.

Who will be the proud recipient of one?
You remember those sweetheart candies.  The ones in the paper box that taste like chalk?  Did anyone actually eat those?  A while back, Chef Ron began donutizing the concept, with his own crazy twist. Not-So-Sweethearts are the perfect gift for your anti-Valentine (or someone you love that appreciates a twisted sense of humor).  Not-So-Sweethearts come with loveable slogans like "I H8 U," "DOOSH," and other poetic anomalies, to truly help express your real feelings this Valentine's Day!  (editorial note: the DOOSH typo is intentional, because really, would you enjoy a donut with the correct spelling of that word on top?  Besides, the real spelling might not fit on a donut).

We're to blame for creating this heart-shaped victim of Cupid.  'Shot Thru The Heart' is literally pierced through the heart with an evil chocolate dagger. The heart is oozing raspberry jelly, and blood-red drizzle leaks ominously from its' pocky-inflicted wound.  It's our Headbanger all dressed up for the loveless; or if you really need another Bon Jovi reference...  it's the donut that gives love a bad name.

Along with our crude Valentine's Day donutrocities, we often feel compelled to show the world our soft, Psycho underbelly.  So Chef Ron created the Velvet Crush! Silky red velvet cake topped in cheezcake frosting, with tiny little hearts. There's no crush sweeter!

Beethoven's Passionata was considered by many to be his most tempestuous piano sonata; and such is the case with our Psycho Passionata. This "almost-beating heart" is filled with a piercing combination of white chocolate and passion fruit. It's topped with authentic, home spun raspberry glaze that will send your taste buds into a manic frenzy. Would you kill for love? This is the love donut to kill for!

And not to be outdone by the donutrocities above, you might flatline when you try Devil's My Heart. It'll have raspberry jelly coursing through your veins before you can call for the Nurse on Duty!

Lost Love Found, by Valery Milovic

And in the Psycho art department, it's time for our annual Anti-Valentine's Day art show!  Featuring awesome Psycho artists, including Beth Robinson, Nicolas Caesar, Christine Benjamin, Murphy Adams, Michael Foley, Carlos Villez, Valery Milovic, Eric Joyner, Laura Callin Bennett, John Cloud, and Adam Davis.

It's our annual Anti-Valentine's Day Celebration, with crazy donutrocities coming to a Psycho Pstore near you any day now!  Follow us on Facebook or Twitter for Anti-Valentine donut launch updates!

No Gluten for Vladimir Putin

Will gluten addicts embark on a new wave of protests at our humble South Bay Donusylum?  What's a gluten anyways? Isn't it awesome that Gluten rhymes with Putin (more on that below)?

For our gluten-lovin' fans, 'donut' worry... We will continue to make all your gluten-laden favorites!

Ever since the auspicious launch of Psycho Donuts, customers have challenged us to take donuts to unthinkable places.  We've donutized everything from tacos, pizzas, ice cream sandwiches, to sushi. We've placed edible bugs on donuts...  Along the way, we invented our own line of vegan donutrocities.

And today, we are bouncing off the proverbial rubber walls with glutenous glee, as we announce...

'Gluten Free–Range' Donuts at Psycho Donuts!
Pstarting Psporadically on Friday, January 24

Psycho Gluten Free–Range Donuts enjoy a cage-free doughy existence, until they meet their maker. Initially, they will be available only on certain days of the week. Follow us @psychodonuts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, (and the other likely suspects...) for availability updates. Hint: Call in your order to the nurse on duty (408-533-1023), to ensure you exit the asylum with a gluten-free smile on your crazy face.  Jackie Burrell at the San Jose News Group had this to say.

Although Psycho Donuts does not have a gluten free kitchen, we make every attempt to meet your crazy needs for a gluten-restricted diet.  For this reason, we've teamed up with Melinda's Gluten Free in Santa Cruz.  Melinda provides the 'naked' gluten-free donuts, and the Psycho kooks dress them up for Psycho Pstardom.   Although we make every effort to avoid cross-gluten contamination, be aware that our Gluten Free-Range donuts occasionally have social interaction with their gluten-containing cousins, in the Psycho donut case.

And now, lettuce take a closer look at Psycho's new line-up of Gluten Free-Range Donuts!

The Sticky Pig
Golden Cake, Maple Icing, Crispy bacon. It's Gluten-free goodness without sacrificing the pork!

Chocolate Madness
Chocolate cake, Chocolate icing, Chocolate sprinkles.  It may be gluten-free, but it's still a chocoholic's dream donut!

Sochi's Choice
It's Red! It has a winter white blanket of cheesecake icing. Even the press concurs that the Winter Olympics in Sochi is INSANE...  which make Sochi the perfect victim for a Current Event Donut!  Who cares if it's too warm for snow...  We'll manufacture our own white blanket of cheesecake icing, atop the doughy slopes of this gluten-free donutrocity. Sochi's Choice is Vladimir Putin's favorite non-gluten (say that 10 times).

Psycho Pstrawberry Psupernova
Chocolate cake, Vanilla icing, and a gluten-reminiscent explosion of Strawberry drizzle.

Gluten Free-Range Donuts – roaming the Psycho Donuts display case sporadically, starting on Friday, January 24!

Animal Donuts Abound

Nurse Kylie making Furry Friends at Psycho San Jose
It's January, which means our nurses are in triage mode, preparing for FurrCon in Downtown San Jose.  And FurrCon is incomplete without Animal Parts...

By which we mean --  the tails and ballz of Tigers and Zebras.

Get your animal parts at Psycho San Jose and also on-site at the FurrCon event.

Attending Hempcon or Northern California Volleyball Association's Girl's Kickoff Tournament?  Psycho is on-site at the convention center, with Crazy Good treats!

Break out the Animal Parts!  Welcome Furries!


And that's not all... this time of year, our Headbanger transforms into the PandaBanger... 

But the animal we're really crazy about this year is the shark.  And for that reason, please give a warm welcome to our latest donutrocity -- Ballz of Teal!   Donut holes made of devil's food cake in Sharks fan colors, topped with messy drizzles in vanilla, chocolate, and caramel.  Look for them on game days.  Go SHARKS!
Ballz of Teal!
