It’s fall, y’all.⁣

We Googled it. The internet said fall starts Sept 22. We’re past that… so, welcome to fall.⁣

Zayne is committed to raising #autumnawareness: there are pumpkins at the window, Pumpkin Pie lattes, Pumpkin Spice hot fresh mini donuts… ⁣

The #WhiteDuckWeekend is getting autumny. Ember was even wearing a jacket today. 🎃⁣

Apple Cider. Pumpkin. Brown Sugar Cinnamon. Maple.⁣

On a day like today, Jeff and Jaime were wandering around on their bikes, because the weather begged for it.⁣

They were cheap bikes, one from Walmart and one a hand-me-down, and they worked just fine.⁣

A White Duck stop happened just after lunch, and they’d wound up lazily cycling away with one Purple Lotus with light cream and light Watermelon, and a Red Bull (also with Watermelon and cream). ⁣

Sometimes you need a Red Bull to *really* kick you in the face and get that energy up.⁣

(ok not *really* tho)⁣

Now they were sitting on the pavement, Vans tapping and scrolling TikTok and laughing while sipping their drinks.⁣

Yay Friday

Here is the Apple Cider Lotus twice.⁣

Still want carbonation in yours? Order it half cider half club soda. All the appley fall spice, and still the bubbly effervescence you crave.⁣

Enjoy this unrelated story vignette.⁣

The car was running. It had been for over an hour even though they were stopped, because it was cold in the mountains. And a little creepy.⁣

They’d driven straight from New Port Richey, 17 hours, stopping only for gas, Red Bull, and dill sunflower seeds.⁣

Only to find their AirBnb was locked and the code didn’t work, and the host was either asleep or who knows what, because they’d messaged and called for an hour with no response.⁣

Neither of them wanted to drive to the closest hotel (40 minutes one way), especially since it was already 4am and in a few hours someone would surely let them in.⁣

It seemed like just a blink, and suddenly it was 7am and the host was calling “so sorry so sorry” with a code that worked.⁣

First morning in the cabin.⁣

Each of them took their Apple Cider Lotuses from the cooler and set them on the counter, filled them with ice, draped blankets around their shoulders and opened the back door to let the birdsong in.⁣

It would be a good week.

SPARKLEDUCK says everyone loves the White Peach Special.⁣

White Peach. Watermelon. Blue Raspberry. Special.⁣

This duck wandered in from a land of pizzazz and vibrancy. A place where the color saturation is high, where the music is bright. ⁣

Gray can be all around, and this duck shines with shoulders straight and mirthful eyes, catching the light and perhaps even producing⁣
some of its own.⁣

NEVER DOUBT WE ARE PILLARS OF PROFESSIONALISM⁣

“Done. I’ve got a car, too.”⁣
- Blake, 2021⁣

Did we post this video to you, the public? Yes, we did.⁣

In this tiny stand, there are many people. And p’raps there has arisen a tradition of rapid ingestion of the drink which gives you wings.⁣

A small puncture is placed in aluminum cans, widened strategically for maximum consumption in minimal time, and when placed at the mouth the more common tab is then used to puncture the top of the can. ⁣

This dual perforation situation allows expedited migration of liquid caffeination, facilitating ablation of tiredness at our stations.⁣

We then use our Red Bull-given wings to make your drinks even more quickly. ⁣

Try YOUR Red Bull with Watermelon and cream, or Piña Colada. Or Strawberry Guava with cream. ⁣

See you soon. #randomdinosaur 🦖

THE RETURN OF THE APPLE CIDER LOTUS⁣

One fall Sunday, Amy woke up thinking of apple cider. ⁣

She thought of hot apple cider, yes, how her dad had used to pour an entire jug in a big pot and heat it on the stovetop when they were kids. Ahhhhhhh…⁣

But what she really wanted, in this Florida warmth (even with the gray clouds!), was some nice chuggable fall in a cup.⁣

White Duck’s Apple Cider Lotus was back, and she was going to get one. ⁣

Cinnamon. Brown sugar. Lotus for energy. Apple Cider instead of the normal carbonation. It tasted like a holiday. It tasted like nostalgia and joy.⁣

Amy pulled on some sweats, slipped into her slippers, and hopped in the car.

👾 INTRODUCING: THE ALIEN ATTACK LOTUS 👾 ⁣

Julie had been solo swamp-packing, which is what her friends and she called camping in the Florida swampland with just a backpack. ⁣

She hated the mosquitoes, but didn’t really mind the non-biting bugs, and she’d grown up in the marshy hot-as-an-oven lush green sprawl. She relished her days-long treks into gator territory, her phone left at home, and had been doing this once or twice a year since she first got her license.⁣

Which is why Julie didn’t even know the alien attack had happened.⁣

She returned and it was all anyone could speak of. How the UFOs hadn’t looked anything like the saucer shapes we’d grown up with - just weird giant lumps of too much shimmer in the air, noting something there, but which everyone had a hard time explaining. ⁣

How the green blue tractor beam like things HAD been just like we’d thought, although oddly dimmer than expected, and had pulled up the most random things. ⁣

People, yes, her brother Aaron among them - which still seemed like a hoax, like he was just here somewhere, around town. But also mailboxes. Swing sets. Trees. 200 feet of hedges at Anclote, and the entire intersection at 19 and Main. Candy.⁣

White Duck Espresso was still there (mostly - a single duck was missing from the display of rubber ducks they kept out by the line).⁣

They’d created a drink whose flavor was as hard to describe as the shimmering alien ships had been, and called it the Alien Attack.⁣

Julie was drinking one now in her lab, trying to make sense of it all.⁣

As she sipped the drink, Julie stared absentmindedly at the Abbe Refractometer on her desk, her thoughts floating.⁣

And an idea hit her.

Our secret menu is basically our social media.⁣

We know, if you don’t scroll these historic digital roads, you may lose some of the momentous relics of the past.⁣

Like this archival treasure, the Cloudy Daze. A hazy mixture of Blueberry, Kiwi, and Lime (for you coffee shops looking for a recipe), mixed well with the clouds and the days, the gray blue hazy slowness of late and the gently rolling swirl of a Saturday afternoon.⁣

Remember, if you feel the lazy pace of Cloudy Daze and experience a pang of guilt at your lack of productivity, to ignore that guilt. Do the things, but rest when it’s time. Both are nice.⁣

Happy Monday.

We call it a Pumpkin Pie Latte (available in Sugar Free too!). But you also love that Pumpkin SPICE Latte.⁣

So ask for the Pumpkin Spice Sugar topping, no charge, and raise that autumn awareness.⁣

We can add whip and topping, or just topping, or neither, or recite a small-but-maybe-not-great poem, or however you’d like to get fall-y with us.⁣

And while we may be closed RIGHT NOW since it’s past 7pm, we’ll be open at 5am ready to get Pumpkiny with you.⁣

Or just get a Blue Raspberry Huckleberry Lotus. Here for you.

APOCALYPSE CONTINUED⁣

The heat sunk into every part of Grace’s skin.⁣

A year ago, she’d been planning for college. She’d scrolled dozens of IG accounts of higher-ed institutions. She’d pored over websites, talked to counselors and her parents to figure out the financial part, and written essays and sent in applications. She’d been expecting responses any moment.⁣

Gone, gone, gone. Another life; another world. Another girl.⁣

Saturdays used to kick off the #WhiteDuckWeekend (well, maybe Friday afternoon), back when she’d go daily with Hannah and Jamal, laughing about things that didn’t matter (and sometimes things that did). They’d mix weird flavors together and make Sam drink them. Turmeric Lime Irish Cream. Amaretto Watermelon Elderflower.⁣

Now she boiled water from the stream, waited hours for it to cool down, and drank only that. The oranges were wonderfully still safe, and she’d found a small crop of trees a few miles from her favorite living site. Sometimes she squeezed them for a drinkable treat.⁣

Gosh she could go for a 32oz Strawberry Guava Lotus.
