The wait is finally over for delicious made to order donuts in Moore County.
The anticipated grand opening of Ducks Donuts arrived Wednesday morning at 6 am in Southern Pines. There was a line outside the doors even before it opened at 5:30 am with locals anxiously waiting for their donut fix.
One customer said, ” I couldn’t wait to hit the grand opening today, and I can not say how great the donuts are. You can’t go wrong with any flavor combo that you choose. The staff are great and work hard to get you in and out as fast as possible. My favorite so far is the maple bacon.”
Located in the Morganton Park South shopping center next to Lowe’s Foods, customers can be a donut artist and create their own masterpiece. You start with a coating such as cinnamon sugar, peanut butter, or maple. Next, you pick a topping like sprinkles, bacon pieces, or shredded coconut and oreos. Lastly, you choose a drizzle which can include hot fudge, marshmallow, or raspberry and blackberry. All this yumminess goes over a freshly made vanilla cake donut. If you doubt your creativeness, one can order their featured flavors such as french toast, s’mores, or maple icing with chopped bacon. The donut shop offers specialty coffee drinks as well with a small cafe area and outside seating.
The first Duck Donuts opened in Duck, NC in 2006. In 2012, they grew to 4 stores, and now there are 167 stores with Moore County now adding to the list.
As one customer was walking out the door with hands full of donuts said, “Donuts made fresh with whatever you want on it; I will definitely stop by again.”
