There are a bunch of great ways to satisfy your sweet tooth on Main St., but Duck Donuts just amped up the scene. Not only do they serve the donuts warm, but you get to pick your own icing and topping combos. It doesn’t get any better than that. These donuts are a big step up from Dunkin Donuts (not that we don’t love Dunkin). The dough is not cakey, but not the typical overly fried dough you’d find in a Dunkin’s donut. It’s as if a Dunkin’s donut and a cakey donut came together and had a warm, delicious donut child. For anyone who hasn’t been here yet, it is a must-try. Here’s some of the best flavor combos:
1. Maple & Bacon
Putting bacon bits on top of a donut may sound strange, but take that chance. It tastes like when you were a kid and the syrup from your pancakes ran over to the bacon and it was the best thing that ever happened. The bacon adds a crunch and a savory note that just can’t be matched by any other flavors. It satisfies both your sweet and salty cravings, and it is something everyone needs to try at least once.
2. Lemon & Coconut
This flavor combo is the sweetest one, but it is oh so good. The lemon icing is reminiscent of a lemon meringue pie in flavor, and when paired with the coconut flakes, it just makes for the perfect sweet and slightly tangy combo.
3. Chocolate & Chopped Peanuts
If you’re a chocolate-peanut butter lover, then this is the donut for you. The delicious chocolate icing melting on top of the warm fried dough is just like heaven, and the crunchy chopped peanuts on top makes for the perfect combo.
4. Strawberry & Rainbow Sprinkles
Eating this donut will instantly take you back to your childhood. It’s a classic donut combo, and it’s even better on a warm duck donut. I mean, who doesn’t love rainbow sprinkles?
5. Cinnamon Sugar
For those who don’t like icing, Duck’s cinnamon sugar donut is the one. It is essentially a warm churro in donut form. With autumn in the air, this donut would be the perfect start to your morning paired with a hot latte.
Duck Donuts has a flavor combo for every donut lover and they are all equally delicious. If you haven’t been there already, make it a personal mission to get to Main St. and stuff your face.
