13 Times Donuts Went Too Far

Let's talk about donuts today, guys.

Donuts, which have been making our mornings better for decades upon decades. Donuts, which delight and entice us with glazes, frostings, cream fillings and sprinkles. Donuts, which put all other breakfast pastries to shame. Those very same donuts -- which we thought could do no wrong -- have just crossed the line. And not just once, but 13 times.

We've come across many instances where a donut has made us feel a little sick at the mere thought of it. (And we can easily take down multiple cookie dough-filled doughnuts AND brownie batter doughnuts in one sitting, so you know we can handle a lot.) It's not the pastry's fault -- it never asked to be topped with chicken skin crumble -- but that has resulted in donuts that just went too far.

See for yourself.

    That time it made a fried chicken sandwich.
    Astro Doughnut & Fried Chicken
    You're looking at the Old Bay Fried Chicken BLT served on a DONUT from Astro Doughnut & Fried Chicken. What's wrong with regular ol' bread?
  • 2
    That time it was stuffed with foie gras (aka fatty goose liver).
    Psycho Donuts
    This one got death threats from the vegan community. JUST. TOO. FAR.

    It's not a crouton! (We're talking about you, Gourdoughs.)

    That time a mimosa became the donut filling.
    Psycho Donuts
    Let us introduce you to the "MOMosa" donut from Psycho Donuts -- inspired by Mother's Day. It's filled with champagne pastry cream. We don't know about you, but every part of this just screams WRONG to us.

    That time mac and cheese hid inside a beignet.
    Glazed LA
    Awesome? Yes. But, total gut bomb.
  • 6
    That time there was a Peep stuck into its hole.

    Wrong, wrong, wrong. Dunkin' Donuts, what are you doing?
  • 7
    That time buffalo chicken became a donut flavor.
    Bespoke Doughnuts
    The buffalo chicken donut has DEFINITELY gone too far. We know it looks pretty. We know it sounds good. But guys, chicken skin crumble on a donut? That's just not right. Let's stick to the sprinkles, people.

    That time the Luther Burger was born.
    Weiner and still Champion
    This bacon, burger and cheese donut sandwich is everything that's wrong with the world. You can find it on select days at Weiner and Still Champion in Evanston, IL.
  • 9
    That time even Dunkin' Donuts, the people who really know donuts, crossed the line with a breakfast sandwich.
    Dunkin' Donuts
    You too, DD? Dunkin' Donuts, you have no business doing that to your donuts.
  • 10
    That time six donuts came together to make one giant donut to rule them all.

    Meet the Tex-Ass donut from Voodoo Doughnuts. If you eat the whole thing in sixty seconds, it's free. If not, it'll set you back $4.20. Is it worth it guys? (Just to be clear, the Tex-Ass donut in the picture above is that giant thing hiding beneath the chocolate-frosted donut.)
  • 11
    Or that time that Round Rock Donuts made a donut bigger than the biggest head on earth.
    Rock Round Donuts
    No one should eat this donut. No. One.
  • 12
    That time Captain Crunch overloaded a donut.

    Sugar on sugar. Make it stop. (This is another creation from Voodoo Doughnuts.)
  • 13
    That time someone put an entire pound of bacon on top of a donut.

    Then drowned it in maple frosting. STOP THE MADNESS.
