614 Donut Trail: Duck Donuts

614 Donut Trail
Welcome, one and all, to the 614 Donut Trail. In the name of journalism and the great city of Columbus, we’ve taken on the honorable duty of chewing through the local donut scene. Day after each delicious day, we’ll gorge ourselves on the best sweet rings Columbus has to offer and report back to you with our powder sugar-covered findings. Because, after all, the wheels on this C-bus we’re all riding are actually donuts.

Duck Donuts

7717 Sawmill Rd, Dublin

825 Polaris Pkwy, Westerville

The fine folks at Duck Donuts are far from quacks but, rather they’re sweets superheroes with inventive palates, creative flare and a delicious knack for cakey donuts.

Customers can choose from any of the featured donuts on the menu or trust themselves to create their own which they can watch be made in the donut-making window.

But quite possibly the best part of Duck Donuts is their total lack of stinginess when it comes to icing and toppings!

Lemon Powdered Sugar:

Yum! Billowy taste with a fluffy accent from the powdered sugar. Lemon drizzle gets you tingling right in the back of the jaw in the best way.

Berry Chocolate Sprinkle:

Sweet, textured frosting with nice crunch of chocolate sprinkles. And what a looker this donut is! Ooh-la-la.

Glazed with Apple, Streusel & Salted Caramel Drizzle

Crumble topping is delicious with nice burst of fruit in the center hole. It’s like bobbing for apples without the water.

Lemon Coconut

Chewy coconut shavings atop sweet, tangy lemon frosting. Bright aesthetic with an even brighter taste.

Pumpkin Icing with Streusel

Put down that latte and pick up with pumpkin spiced donut! Yummy crumble topping on a generous layer of fall-tasting goodness.



There’s nothing like a marshmallowy, chocolaty, graham cracker-y s’more around the fire… or in your car on your way to work. Either way, it’s hard to be in a bad mood with this classic treat.

Dirt ‘N Worms

Tastes as good as it did when Ben in 3rd grade brought dirt pudding in for his birthday treat. Rich chocolate, fun worms.

Maple Icing with Chopped Bacon

They certainly don’t skimp on the bacon at Duck Donuts! It’s a perfect carnivorous breakfast without all the time and mess.

Strawberry Icing with Rainbow Sprinkles:

Tastes like a toaster struddle with a soft doughy ring and fruity bursts. Perfect for a morning pick-me-up.

Cinnamon & Sugar:

Soft, moist (sorry if you hate that word), chewy, classic, delicious.


Halloween Ghost:

It’s spooky szn and this donut will put you right in the mood. Great donut, sweet frosting with festive sprinkles

Peanut Butter & Jelly:

Peanut lovers will go nuts (pun intended) for this treat. Creamy peanut butter is complimented nicely with the sugary jelly drizzles and crunch from the nuts.
