From Faith — Humans consume billions of doughnuts every single year. Get your statins at the door, folks! After cruising the internet and old-school print publications, we have a roundup that includes doughnuts we didn’t think possible — liquor-filled, cookie-filled and even a doughnut covered in 24-carat gold. Here you go:
• ON-DEMAND: Listen to Faith and the gang go ’round about their favorite doughnuts in our region—and beyond. •
1. Hypnotic Donuts in Dallas (of course) sells what they believe is the world’s spiciest doughnut, Devil’s Death Dance, stuffed with slices of jalapeno, serrano and habanero peppers and topped with an incendiary ghost pepper icing. Be afraid, very afraid.
2. Psycho Donuts in California has teamed up with a movie club to sponsor movies where you eat their memorable doughnuts, such as the Dead Elvis, filled with custard and topped with peanut butter, sliced bananas, bacon and jelly. But wait, there’s more…They make a tequila-centric Margarita doughnut laced with tequila cream and topped with strawberry icing and flecks of Margarita salt.
Let’s pause now to contemplate this…just because you can think of it doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. I’m just saying.
