“They nailed it!”
Review of Duck Donuts

Reviewed August 22, 2017 via mobile

The Duck Donuts franchise has taken the latest trend of making plain donuts to order and then customizing them by dipping and decorating them with a variety of toppings and are doing it right.

I got the 'campfire' assortment and thoroughly enjoyed 12 unique flavors such as peanut butter with chocolate drizzle, smores, French toast, cinnamon bun, maple bacon, chocolate Oreo crumble, just to name a few.

Staff was very friendly and helpful even though it was just a few minutes prior closing.

I believe it cost about $14 per dozen but they do accept credit cards which is a plus.

All other 'custom donut' shops, take notes!
This is how it's done!

Freshness !! Your order is placed and you can watch the batter drop in the hot oil; it cooks and is flipped over to complete cooking. The toppings are so good and the finished product is placed into your hands still quite hot. We stood in line for only 5 minutes and it was worth the wait. These donuts melt in your mouth.

Unfortunately, the reputation exceeds the product. The donuts are good with an interesting selection of flavors, but are really overpriced. The local bakeries in Avalon deliver a superior product at a much more competitive price. The first time you have a donut with maple glaze and bacon it's one of the greatest things ever, but do you really need more than one of these?

The aroma lures you from blocks away. You cannot walk past this local donut shop with freshly made donuts... they are warm and so not "manufactured"--instead made to order.
You will be an all-star bringing a dozen of these back. Try a little raspberry drizzle​.
Be aware they are cake donuts and go perfectly with coffee!
Enjoy this taste if heaven.

Pick up an order form and fill it out as you wait in the line (short & quick-moving), but leave room for suggestions when you get to the counter, where you'll find a laminated sheet of pictured suggestions that you might like. The donuts we ordered were just out of the fryer (as is the custom) and we ordered a mix of donuts ( vanilla icing topped with Oreo cookie crumble, blueberry icing with confectioner's sugar, maple icing & bacon topping, and lemon icing & raspberry drizzle). We weren't disappointed.
