Ryan McNeil was visiting family in North Carolina when his brother-in-law told him about a place he just had to try.
A line was out the door. Inside, children were excitedly rummaging through a bowl of tiny rubber ducks, looking for ones they didn’t already have in their collection. A rubber duck holding a sand pail and shovel? Or a boat captain with a black hat?
Then the children watched, enthralled, as their doughnuts rolled out of the deep fryer and then were iced in a variety of colors.
