Free Zombie Pops on National Donut Day

Piggy Ballz!
Everyone knows that the first Friday in June is National Donut Day. This year, it's June 6. Every year on this esteemed holiday, Psycho Donuts rides the edge. Sometimes we even go a little over the edge.

A few years ago we launched a line of Psycho Ballz on National Donut Day, and there was a little controversy (actually, we invented that controversy, but whatever).  Ever since, our crazy line of Ballz – Piggy Ballz, Wookiee Ballz, Chocolate Salty Ballz, and more – have reinvented the meaning of 'donut holes.'
The Foie Bomb Exploded in 2013!

2013 was the year of the Foie Bomb – and what an explosion that was.  Sure, it was a taste explosion... what with mixing the balsamic fig gastrique and the Foie Mousse. But there was a whole different kind of explosion going on.  People fall roughly into two categories - those who lined up for our Foie Bomb when Psycho opened, and well, those who really really didn't... Donut Guy is always learning, and evolving.  And he has a new trick up his sleeve this year.

Blood Red Velvet Zombie Pops
On Friday June 6, come to Psycho Donuts (early...), and try our Blood Red Velvet Zombie Pop, if you're daring enough.  They're free, while supplies last. You can't even buy one.  Time Magazine writes about them. Sal Pizarro at the Mercury News is writing about 'em, and The Examiner too!  Watch for 'em on NBC News KNTV on National Donut Day.

These 'donutrocities on a stick' are not for the faint of heart. Lettuce tell you why...

Here's the deal – we whip up some red velvet cake donuts, then mix 'em again with creamy frosting. Not very Psycho... yet.  We roll the resulting blood red concoctions into meaty ballz, and stab 'em with a popsicle stick. After the white chocolate coating hardens, our Psycho Kooks carefully add the zombie eyes and scary teeth. 

Here's the crazy bit. These zombies are crawling with worms. Not those silly candy worms; we're talking about crunchy cheesy cheddar larvae – protruding from the Zombie's mouth and eyes.  

Last time we sold edible bug donuts, they were gone. Fast.  So if you want a Blood Red Velvet Zombie Pop (you know who you are), come early!  It's a lot of work harvesting those worms and Zombie facial parts, so supplies are limited (50 Zombie Pops will be given away at each Psycho location). One Zombie Pop per customer.

Blood Red Velvet Zombie Pops – free for one day only – on National Donut Day, Friday, June 6, 2014 – while supplies last.  But 'donut' forget, the early bird gets the worm.
