Psycho Donut is a shop decorated with loony bin props like a padded cell and seating areas labeled group therapy and shock therapy.
Employees dressed as nurses serve creative concoctions like the Bipolar, a maple cake donut topped with half peanuts and half coconut, the Massive Head Trauma, a jelly donut with a face and red filling oozing out the side, and the Psycho, a donut featuring lemon marshmallow glaze, chocolate, pretzels, and chili powder.
Owner Jordan Zweigoron created the kooky treats to give tired donuts a jolt and says the sweets literally drive people crazy, as patrons come back time and time again for a fix.
The controversial donut shop also has advocacy groups going nuts, who feel it mocks mental illness.
However, Zweigoron assures its all in good fun and notes that at least they got rid of their straight-jackets once used as props.
