Psycho Donuts

Everybody loves donuts. Add a sprinkling of lunacy and you've got the best dessert ever. Psycho Donuts in San Jose, CA calls itself the "world's first and only asylum for wayward donuts" where you can find strange and usual donuts topped with everything from cereal to bacon to candy. A few favorites are the Jasonut (chocolate dough with bloody raspberry filling), the Dead Elvis (with bananas, bacon, peanut butter and jelly), and the Mello Submarine (donut topped with Rice Krispies Treats). The ambience is set from the front door with the eyeballs and purple slime graphics, the staff dressed as nurses, the padded cell photo op, and of course the scads of offbeat art on the walls (most of it for sale by local artists). This shop has been featured on the Food Network, Travel Channel, Bon Appetit, and recently had a donut showdown on the Cooking Channel (and won).
