Just inside the Gulf Duck Thru in Moyock, you can find a haven for fresh locally made donuts, treats and coffee.
Jenn and Randy Ray Blandford opened Sweet Life Donuts n’ Coffee at the end of the summer of 2017.
According to owner, Jenn Blandford, she and her husband operate a small mom and pop donut shop, with the help of their two younger daughters.
Blandford describes reception of their sweet shop, by residents of both Moyock and Currituck County, as “fantastic”, indicating they see a lot of return customers, as well as new faces and a lot of tourist stop ins.
Offerings include: traditional deep fried yeast donuts, baked donuts, and old fashioned fried cake donuts – over 100 different types are available during the week. They offer 24 varieties at any one time, with 1/3 of the case changing out daily for more choices.
In addition to donuts, the Blandfords offer tradition and specialty coffees, capuccino, machiatto and lattes.
Donut making typically begins at 3:15 in the morning, with everything made fresh from scratch daily.
When asked about the most popular donut made and served, Blandford said hands down it’s the “Maple Bacon Donut”. “This is a fried yeast donut, with a maple glaze, covered with crispy bacon.”
Blandford added, another favorite at Sweet Life is the “Currituck Special” – the Maple Bacon donut with Chocolate Drizzled over the bacon.
During Spring and Summer, Blandford noted, Sweet Life offers fresh yogurt parfait, homemade at shop, as well as a variety of fruit cups, for a fresh low calorie healthy option.
The couple also offers cakes, sugar free, and gluten free options.
