It’s pretty hard to resist a donut shop with fresh-from-the-fryer donuts … so we didn’t. Let’s check out Duck Donuts in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
As I mentioned in my earlier posts about Hershey, PA, during our most recent trip, we really concentrated on doing things we had never done before. So as we were checking out of our hotel, I asked the front desk clerk if there was a donut shop or bakery that we should try before we left the area, and that’s how we found ourselves at Duck Donuts.
It’s very easy to find, right on West Chocolate Avenue, and there is ample parking in their own lot. The interior of the shop is bright and airy, and there are a few tables in the front, and some additional tables tucked into the back. Duck Donuts was originally born in Duck, North Carolina, and has expanded to many locations all over the country.
To say I was just a little bit overwhelmed with all the different donut selections would be an understatement, so I did what I always do in these situations … I asked the employee what the number one seller is.
Maple Bacon Donut it is.
Once we placed our order, the kids could watch the donuts be made right behind the clear glass counter. It seriously doesn’t get fresher than that!
The employee’s suggestion was perfect. The donut was soft and warm, sweet from the maple glaze, with a little hint of salty chewiness from the bacon topping.
It didn’t last long at all.
Everyone got something different, and only half of the donuts made it out of the shop.
