Crunch Your Way into the New Year with a Brand New Topping at Duck Donuts®

Limited-Time HEATH Toffee Crunch Topping and Cozy Combinations Assortment Now Available at all Duck Donuts Locations

Duck Donuts, known for serving Warm, Delicious and Made-to-Order® donuts, is rolling into the new year with a limited-time topping that has never been offered by the company before. Available until March 31, Duck Donuts is introducing a tasty toffee crunch topping made with HEATH. The English toffee taste and subtle nutty undertone topping is also featured in the Cozy Combinations Assortment, along with classics such as vanilla icing with chocolate drizzle, chocolate icing with chocolate sprinkles, and more.

“When guests taste one of our warm, made-to-order donuts, we want to invoke the nostalgia of what it was like to be a kid coming inside for a sweet snack, after a day of playing in the snow,” said Russ DiGilio, founder and CEO of Duck Donuts Franchising Company. “We think our toffee crunch topping encapsulates that feeling seamlessly, it’s the perfect treat to warm up with!”

Most stores are offering new winter espresso drinks, including the Churro Fluff Latte and the Toffee Bar Mocha, with the fan-favorite Horchata White Mocha and Cookie Butter Chai Latte continuing from the holiday season.  The Churro Fluff Latte offers a taste of cinnamon spice with layers of velvety marshmallow fluff, while the Toffee Bar Mocha suggests a rich chocolaty taste with a remarkably nutty crunch. In addition, all locations are still highlighting the seasonal Winter Roast coffee, a blend of Central and South American beans medium roasted, boasting a sweet butterscotch flavor layered with notes of hazelnut and whiskey.

Duck Donuts specializes in warm, delicious and made-to-order donuts. Customers can create their own donut combination by choosing from a variety of coatings, toppings and drizzles, including traditional favorites such as chocolate icing with sprinkles and more adventurous creations such as maple icing with bacon. The family-friendly stores offer a viewing area where children and adults alike can watch their donuts being made. Duck Donuts also sells coffee, tea, donut breakfast sandwiches and now offers online ordering in many locations. To learn more about local promotions or locate the nearest Duck Donuts, visit


Duck Donuts was founded in 2006 by Russ DiGilio in Duck, North Carolina. His intention? To solve a family vacation problem: “Our family wanted a place to buy warm, delicious, made-to-order donuts, and when we couldn’t find one, we decided to start our own.”

By 2011, Duck Donuts had expanded to four Outer Banks locations and the donut business was so successful that DiGilio was continuously approached about franchise opportunities by fans who begged for a Duck Donuts in their community. The first franchise opened in Williamsburg, Virginia, in 2013, and there are now 77 open franchise locations and more than 140 additional contracts in 25 states and two countries.
