Duck Donuts also offers coffee at a very reasonable price. For a large cup of coffee it would only cost you $2.35! Definitely college budget friendly.
As for donut ratings, Duck Donuts gets a 10 out of 10. The donuts are warm, delicious and will surely satisfy any sweet tooth. If you plan on taking these delicious round bundles of joy home with you to snack on later, it is recommended to pop them in the microwave for 8 – 10 seconds to heat them up. I wouldn’t recommend saving them longer than 2 days as for they start to go stale and no one likes a stale donut.
