The gimmick of Psycho Donuts is pretty in-your-face (staff members wear nurses’ uniforms; doughnuts have names like the Headbanger and Manic Malt) but the best offering, surprisingly, is not, says OCAnn. The apricot fritters are positively decadent, she says, with a nice, crisp exterior and sweet but not syrupy flavor. This is no gut bomb. Meanwhile, the doughnuts are pretty pedestrian at heart, dressed up with cookie parts or cereal.
