Duck Donuts

Duck Donuts is a donut shop we visited in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. They make custom donuts just for you!

  1. they take a bare donut
  2. add a glaze
  3. add a toping
  4. and add a drizzle
Mine is the one in the top right corner.

You also get to watch them making your donuts! I had Irish cream with caramel. It tasted so good, soft  and warm. It might be the best donut I have ever had. The only downside is that Duck Donuts is only located on the east coast.

Lexington Glassworks

While we were in Asheville, North Carolina we went and saw Lexington Glassworks. It is a business that makes custom glass in unique shapes and colors. If its glass, they make it. The coolest thing about it was that you got to watch them making their custom glass sculptures for free!

First, they take some molten glass on a metal pole. Then, they blow, shape and dye it. Finally, they let it cool, and sell it. The whole process can take anywhere from fifteen hours (they have to let it cool down a long time) to forty-eight hours. In case you were wondering, if any any of their projects break or go wrong if they have not dyed it yet they can just melt it up again. If it is dyed, they smooth it out into paperweights and sell them. The Lexington Glassworks is a interesting place to find out how glass sculptures are made.
