Former high school guidance counselors and college mentors always had such high hopes for the donut, until it started hanging with the wrong crowd and descended into sweet, sweet madness. For $10, you can get a dozen of the deranged delights from Psycho Donuts in Campbell, the 2009 winner of the Best Donuts in Silicon Valley (a $21 value). Combine six regular donuts with six premium donuts for a competitive game of cruller curling in your office break room. Place your order online and have your gang of twelve ready for pick-up.
Holey-pastry lovers bored with pedestrian chocolate glazes and sprinkles can shake up their personal dozen with a few of Psycho Donuts' peculiar donutical creations. Premium psychotic donuts include the likes of the Headbanger (a jelly donut in the shape of an injured head), the Psycho Panda (a chocolate-covered donut dotted with Koala Yummies), and the Cap'n Crunch–covered Cereal Killer. The Crazy Face will save you the time of remolding your donuts into edible faces, while donut-hole lovers can get just the good parts with Noses and Eyeballs. There's even a donut for vegans and donut fries for forward-thinkers looking to take the medium of donut to strange new places. While you wait for your donuts to get crazy, feel free to shred on the shop's Fender electric guitar or plug your iPod into the Psycho Pspeaker and share your love of reggae-tinged Transylvanian noise-pop with the world. If the ensuing sugar rush makes you hallucinate, the on-site sexy nurse will put you in the shop's padded cell until you come down.
As its brother, the bagel, settles into a boring corporate job and has a few unexceptional kids, the donut continues to embrace its inner wild child. Celebrate your release from the asylum, or your supervisor's looming nervous breakdown, with an artfully chosen dozen.
- very unique and, well, crazy. They are committed to not only be the craziest/fun donut experience you’ll ever have, but one of the most unique places in the South Bay.
