Duck Donuts, a Chipotle for donuts


Countless Naz students are traveling to Polaris just to try the “famous” Duck Donuts.

These donut shops are popping up all over the eastern side of the United States. But, you may ask, what makes them so special?

Each donut is made to your exact specifications. People often say that Duck Donuts is the Chipotle of the donut industry, and I would have to agree.

You can build your own unique donut!

In fact, the whole experience is unique.

Duck Donuts at Polaris is a fairly small shop. When customers walk in they are immediately greeted by the aroma of fresh baked donuts on their way to order.

Each person can custom-make his or her own donut from a list of ingredients. Or, the less adventurous can try one of the combinations on the menu.

Those daring enough to create their own can pick out the specific coating and toppings they wish to add from an order form.

The choices include maple, glaze, chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, lemon, peanut butter, sprinkles, coconut, peanuts and so much more.

I purchased half a dozen of the specialty donuts. Peanut Butter Drizzle was definitely the best!

The atmosphere of Duck Donuts adds to the overall experience, and the staff is welcoming and addsBy to the excitement of a custom donut shop.

However, my favorite part was waiting for the custom donuts to finish baking.

Since each donut is custom-made, you can see them come out of the oven, get coated in the icing of your choice and decorated with your toppings.

When I went up to the counter to grab the box of donuts, they even offered me a sample of a cinnamon donut that was on the menu.

After this experience, I would definitely recommend checking out Duck Donuts. Grab a group of friends and go for a one-of-a-kind, custom donut shop!

Duck Donuts was started in 2006 by a man named Russell DiGilio, who saw a need for a donut shop while on vacation with his family. There are now locations in Ohio, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. They are also looking to expand into a few new states such as South Carolina and Georgia.
