Did you know that the first Friday in June is National Doughnut Day? That’s this Friday! Not that I need a holiday for a reason to stuff my face. Just look at these crazy flavors from Psycho Donuts. That’s reason enough as far as I’m concerned.
Amidst all their regular donuts, there’s also a number of vegan versions. Pictured above is the vegan Kooky Monster, a ring donut covered with crushed Oreo pieces and blue drizzle. As it’s a cakey donut, it’s a little bit on the dry side. But high marks for the novelty.
I also got a vegan Arnold Palmer donut, iced tea infused cake with lemonade frosting. While it was nice, I couldn’t really detect the iced tea flavor. It didn’t actually come with dark specks on it, that’s just from being in the same bag with the kooky donut.
Key lime pie and raspberry were the other vegan donuts that were available when I was at the downtown San Jose location, near the Tech Museum. If I had known they were so close by the museum, I surely would have been there sooner. The donuts in the case aren’t marked vegan, so you have to ask what’s vegan for that day. A larger Psycho Donut location is in Campbell which I haven’t been to yet.
Fun and inventive from the flavors to the lighthearted insane-asylum theme, it’s definitely a sugar high. Perhaps it’s for the best, donut day comes but once a year. Although if I’m ever in the area again, there’s a high probability I’ll pop in to check out the vegan flavors of the day. I’m crazy like that.
