Everyone loves doughnuts, but the days when a mix-and-match box of glazed, old-fashioned, and chocolate would suffice are long gone. Around the country, indie doughnut-makers have pushed the classic treat into new terrain, smothering yeasty rounds with Sichuan peppercorn-laced icing, piping in foie gras, and loading on the bacon.

Just as the crazy antics of craft brewers have caused Anheuser-Busch and MillerCoors to change up their game, these fried-dough artisans are making waves with their experimental creations, putting the pressure on chains like Dunkin' Donuts to evolve beyond the heart-shaped Valentine's doughnut.

How far are these new-breed bakers willing to push the envelope? From Orangesicle to Mojito, check out some of the wildest doughnut flavors across the country.

    Good stuff! As a Portlander you gotta love Voodoo. I’m surprised Blue Star Donuts, another PDX joint, didn’t make the list. They’ve stepped up the game with the likes of the blueberry bourbon basil donut, blood orange glaze topped with spicy candied ginger, and the classic brûlée with a shot of Cointreau. Thanks for sharing!
