Everybody's favorite breakfast, snack and dessert destination in the Outer Banks of North Carolina has made its way to Williamsburg, Virginia. That's right, folks, Duck Donuts is now conveniently located in the Colonial capital.
The Williamsburg Duck Donuts location opened on October 4, 2013. A grand opening is scheduled for October 19. Your Outer Banks Examiner got the news straight from those who know Williamsburg best, WilliamsburgFamilies.com
If you have never tried a donut from Duck Donuts, you don't know what you are missing. Duck Donuts makes made-to-order donuts that are warm, savory and melt-in-your-mouth delicious. The soy-based batter is fried and then topped with a melty, drizzly, delicious icing-like concoction. Flavors include lemon, vanilla, strawberry, peanut butter, glazed and chocolate. Those are just the ones this Examiner has tried. There are many more. I particularly recommend the lemon. Topping choices include rainbow sprinkles, shredded coconut and chopped peanuts.
Each delicious donut is 310 calories. Ingredients include wheat and corn flour, wheat gluten, soybean oil, nonfat dry milk, egg yolks and beta carotene (hey, with beta carotene, it has to be healthy, right?).
For the allergy sufferers, chopped peanuts are used as toppings and, therefore, are in the toppings area. If the staff is not extremely busy, they will gladly top some donuts in a different area to lessen the chances of stray peanuts infiltrating other donuts.
Other Duck Donuts items include coffee, soda, orange juice, muffins, yogurt and whole fruit. The Kitty Hawk and Kill Devil Hills stores also have espresso and breakfast sandwiches. But, really, it's all about the donuts at Duck Donuts. They also sell merchandise such as t-shirts, tumblers, beach totes and other items. Visit them online at DuckDonuts.com.
Duck Donuts Williamsburg is located at Monticello Market Place Shops, 4655 Monticello Avenue, Williamsburg, Virginia 23188.
