I almost never eat donuts- way too many calories. However, we decided that if we rode our bikes there we would feel less guilty. This was not only the best donut I've ever had, but possibly one of the best desserts I've ever had. I prefer cake donuts, but these were from another league- the outside was crusty and warm...

We took several boxes to go cause they go fast! The sweet and salty combos on cake donuts makes these donuts unique.

Delicious, warm, made to order. The kids loved creating their own masterpieces. The parking lot could be larger.

We had a good time filling out our menu of different flavors and toppings. We watched the donuts made on the spot. All of them were soooooooooooooooooo good. We went twice. I had a pumpkin spice coffee which just added to the flavors.

Who doesn't love a warm, specially made for you, donut? I am a donut-a-holic. I would eat them for every meal, every day of my life. This was our first experience at Duck Donuts and will not be our last. We bought a couple dozen to take back to the rental home for everyone to enjoy. Mmmmmm....Excellent!

Delicious! Made fresh to order on the spot. Served warm. I had planned to take them back to my condo but they never made it out of the parking lot.

I brought my sister here for the first time. Before we went she asked me what was so special about them and why don't we drive down the road to Dunkin Donuts ....I told her.."Just wait and then you be the judge." Needless to say it took one bite and she was hooked. She said ..."Oy my gosh,... these are... More

What a fun idea. Create your own donut! If you need a sugar high these fried cakes are unique. Fresh baked, huge assortment of toppings. Sad that there is no place to sit and enjoy these warm, treats. If you visit the Outerbanks, this is a local must do. Not a place for diabetics!

We got two dozen on our first full day in Corolla, and yum! Got 8 different flavors, and all were great. One of the best things about our OBX vacation is Duck Donuts!

Thank rgc1600
