OBX Treats! Duck Donuts, Big Bucks, & Booty Treats

Ice cream. Doughnuts. Booty Freeze. I am a sucker for snacks... a sucker for snacks done really well. Our favorite places were Duck DonutsBooty Treats, and Big Bucks. Duck Donuts' doughnuts are super fresh and hot. We tried strawberry, chocolate coconut, lemon with chocolate sprinkles, cinnamon and sugar, and maple with bacon. When we return to the OBX, we will only order the maple with bacon - it's far superior to the other flavors.

As many of you know, I LOVE ICE CREAM!! My goal during this trip was to experience many homemade ice cream shops. Sadly, I really only found one that was up to par - Big Bucks in Corolla, North Carolina. Their ice cream was delicious. See evidence below. Booty Treats serves Hershey's Ice Cream (no thanks), but they make these great Hawaiian shaved ices and they put Mini Melts on top. These were addicting.
