5 Of The Most Outrageous Donuts In America from foxnews.com
Dead Elvis, Psycho Donuts If the King were alive today, he would almost certainly eat at Psycho Donuts. The shop, which has two California locations in Campbell and San Jose, features a doughnut called the Dead Elvis on their wildly inventive menu. Modeled after Presley's sandwich of choice, the Dead Elvis is a custard-filled doughnut with peanut butter, bananas, bacon and a swirl of jelly. They also serve "cocktail donuts" like the Strawberry Margarita, which boasts tequila cream filling, strawberry icing, a lime drizzle, freeze-dried strawberries and coarse margarita salt.
Maple Bacon Donut, Nickel Diner Nickel Diner only serves five varieties of doughnut, but each is more unique than the last. Their most popular, and a must-have for anyone who walks through the door, is their Bacon Maple Donut. It's exactly what it sounds like — a doughnut dipped in maple glaze and chopped bacon — but the whole is so much greater than the sum of its parts. Customers at this Los Angeles eatery can also choose to try one of their other creations, such as the Nutella Donut (made with Nutella and chopped nuts) or the Irish Car Bomb Donut (made with Guinness, Baileys Irish Cream and Jameson whiskey).
Molasses Guinness Pear, Dynamo Donut & Coffee Beer drinkers won't want to pass up the Molasses Guinness Pear at Dynamo Donut & Coffee in San Francisco.

Try their Lemon Sichuan doughnut with lemon curd and fiery Sichuan spice, or their Monte Cristo doughnut with ham, Gruyere, powdered sugar and homemade plum jelly.

Billed as the world's spiciest doughnut, the Devil's Death Dance features fresh jalapeño, serrano and habanero slices along with icing made from ghost peppers (the hottest in the world) and a sprinkle of cayenne. Some of their less intense doughnuts include their Poppin Berry, with strawberry frosting and crushed Pop-Tarts, and their S'more doughnut, featuring chocolate, marshmallows and crushed graham crackers.
The Voodoo Doughnut, Voodoo Doughnut Voodoo Doughnut in Portland, Oregon, is perhaps the most unique doughnut shop in America. In addition to wacky doughnuts such as the Mango Tango (a frosted doughnut filled with mango jelly and topped with orange Tang) and the Marshall Mathers (a vanilla-frosted doughnut dipped in M&Ms), they proudly serve their signature item, the Voodoo Doughnut. It's shaped like a voodoo doll, filled with raspberry jelly and frosted with chocolate icing. It also comes with a pretzel stick "stake" if you should feel the need to release your aggressions on the edible effigy
