There has to be a really good reason if you either A) don’t like donuts, or B) cannot eat them. If you don’t fall into either category, there is a fantastic store that lets you create your own.
North Carolina’s Duck Donuts recently opened in Houston and is putting a smile on the faces of whoever drops by. Customers can expect to see these rings of heaven being fried, iced and put in a box with their names on it.
Fluffy interiors because of how fresh they are, Alison Cunningham explains that “[the batter] has to bloom, everything is made quickly and to order, we make it in small batches and constantly refresh, if it’s not in the fryer within the time it needs to be, we throw it out.”
However, what makes this Donut store different from most of the others is that you get to call the shots. You choose the dressings, meaning that you get the donuts that you want.
With over 20 different toppings, icings and drizzles, it’s hard to go wrong. From marshmallows and peanut butter and from blueberry to bacon, you choose.
Don’t worry, though. If you are not in the mood to be creative, the staff at Duck Donuts are well educated when it comes to knowing what toppings work well together.
As long as you don’t have to wait in line, expect your order to take about 120 seconds to be made before you decide what the finishing touches are. Whatever you choose to have on it, each donut comes to just $1.50.
Don’t be fooled. They’re not called “Duck” for nothing. This glorious store traces its roots back to Duck, North Carolina. Russ Digilio, the founder aimed to make “warm, fresh, made-to-order doughnuts.” After opening in 2007, the company now has over 150 branches west of North Carolina.
