Photos: Hypnotic Donuts gets inventive with jalapeños, bacon, marshmallows
This place puts other sweet treat vendors to shame.
DALLAS Hypnotic Donuts is in a donut league of its own. Krispy Kreme Donuts must feel totally inadequate. They squeaked by all these years with super duper snoozer donuts, only to be smashed into last place with the arrival of Hypnotic Donuts.
In an instant, Krispy Kreme morphed into worthless, a nonsense kind of donut place. Even the sign on the window screaming donuts are fresh out of the oven does not change the menu. The owners of Krispy Kreme Donuts probably had to attend some kind of competitor therapy session. The therapist probably said, “Your donuts make people sleepy with boredom. Go home. Give up on life as you once knew it. Destroy your sadly lame menu and move on with your life. The donut game is over.”
Hypnotic Donuts is out of control. Not only is every employee happy, the customers don’t seem to mind standing in a line flowing out the door and down the sidewalk. These line-people are not messing around. The owner was working the counter this morning. First of all, this guy is the best kind of busy that a busy person could ever be. While he knew people were patiently waiting to order, he refused to be an in-and-out-order guy. He didn’t take orders without being personable, which had to make customers feel appreciated. He could have taken the order like the Soup Nazi on Seinfeld. He could have been mean to people that asked dumb questions about donuts and said, “No donut for you!” Not this guy. He’s a real deal owner that cares about customer service.
What’s crazy is seeing all these hip-looking girls walk in and out of the kitchen with freshly made trays of incredibly unique donuts. Who would think of a donut having jalapenos? Or bacon? Or parts of a crunched up Pop-Tart? Hypnotic Donuts forces my brain to feel happy. There’s nothing wrong with this place. Nothing.
I’m seriously serious when stating Hypnotic Donuts is the most exciting donut place in the history of outrageously unique donut places. They should have a street named after them or some kind of key to a city somewhere. Hypnotic Donuts is the best thing to happen to a donut menu since the invention of donuts. While it might take 30 minutes to receive this gift, get over it. Happy is what’s about to happen.
