Piper Rae.⁣

How is this real life?! Yesterday Whittney and Joel celebrated the birth of their baby girl Piper Rae, and she is magic and joy all wrapped up in a baby blanket.⁣

Piper is now the SECOND official duckling - both born this week!⁣

We can’t wait to hug and meet her, and are sending all kinds of good thoughts to their family as Whittney takes time away from the stand to introduce Piper to her perfect home.⁣

Happy tears while writing this - like we said Monday, it’s just flat-out joy to grow alongside this team. Being a part of Piper’s life is an honor we’re so looking forward to!⁣

WELCOME PIPER, and congrats Whittney and Joel! 😍🥰🤩⁣

Instead of one White Peach Special, here are 6.⁣

In April we posted a random combo of flavors in a drink featuring a new flavor, White Peach. ⁣

We gave it no name, just a shmattering of tastebud invigoration to highlight an expanding roster of options. ⁣

You showed us pictures of the post, and said “can I get that white peach special.”⁣

We began writing in our iPads, White Peach Special.⁣

Slowly, the drink took on its colloquial nom de plume. It moved from a nameless jumble in a cup to a thing. Perhaps with some fame. ⁣

The White Peach Special exists.

Avah. ⁣

She’s the first official duckling, and we’re over the moon at what a beauty she is!⁣

Gabby and Dillon welcomed their tiny collection of perfection this week, and have been enjoying that beautiful meandering timeless magic that is the first several days after your first baby comes home.⁣

Avah has already come by the stand a couple times, and we can confirm holding her is pure joy. ⁣

It’s so fulfilling to do life with this team every day, and meeting Avah brings so much goodness to our hearts. ⁣

The White Duck fam is growing. 😍 Congrats, Gabby and Dillon! It’s an honor to have the chance to get to know Avah as she grows.⁣

We take the cups, and we fill them ups.⁣

Weekend Lotuses. Mochas and Shakes. Lattes with so many flavors and shots. Hot fresh mini donuts doused in Triple Threat flavors.⁣

The sun beats down. The sun shines down. The sun calmly and quietly does it’s best to warm your heart, to warm our hearts too. It works; we warm.⁣

You speak your week. Your day. We get to know you, and share some of us back at ya.⁣

“They” say there’s rules on how to maximize the dollar, to stay in our lane, to grow and succeed. We say smash them down, be abundantly and constantly good to those we’re given, and see where it takes us. ⁣

Make the world you want. Keep doing it, and keep doing it, and keep doing it.⁣

Happy Saturday come over.

CREAMSICLE IN FRONT OF A SHIRT⁣

Ahhhh, Friday. A day for doing the things you do on many other days, but also with the idea in the back of your mind that perhaps tomorrow you will not do those things. ⁣

Perhaps tomorrow will be a more relaxing day than a weekday. Or perhaps you’ll get out in the garage and use some tools on some project you’re working on. Maybe you’ll read a book or play some video games or keep teaching yourself Mandarin or teach your kids to do chores so you don’t have to as much.⁣

You may do all or nothing of those things, and you may be wearing one of our White Duck sun shirts while you do or don’t do that.⁣

Who’s to say?⁣

Oh, and the drink!? A Creamsicle. Orange and vanilla. Order it as a Lotus if you want that caffeine kick, or order it as a Shake (No Espresso) if you want a nice creamy delicioso treat. ⁣

You do you, and we’ll be here for you. 🤩

The amount of time this drink is handed out as a barista’s choice (surprise!) is a big number of times. Possibly a gajillion. ⁣

It is not *really* called The Ashley, it’s “just” an Espresso Shake with Toasted Marshmallow, White Mocha, Dark Mocha, and Oreo. And some whip. Whipped cream. Whip cream? Whipped? WhaPOW.⁣

This drink will shake you to your core; it crunches. It will astound your taste buds and ignite your energy receptors, which are totally a thing and not something we just made up. Some smooth sip starts simply satisfying.⁣

Hey oh happy Thursday. 🤩

The rumble of the navy blue F-150 was comforting to Andy, and he glanced as the tan stuffing from the seat peeked from the tears in the leather, or whatever the upholstery was made of.⁣

It’d been his dad’s truck, and Andy got it when he turned 16, even if he couldn’t really drive it until he got his license at 17. Dad and his comments about how he’d started driving when he was 12. Florida raised, eh?⁣

The Blackberry Elderflower Guava Lotus with Shimmer he’d gotten as a surprise was brilliant, and he liked how it felt more bougie than his 20 year old F-150 made you think he might be. ⁣

Burn the stereotypes to the ground, Andy thought. Give me shimmer and a fun straw and a grin and an old Ford truck, and I’m heading to the backwoods fully caffeinated.⁣

His Spotify went from Dua Lipa to Nirvana to George Strait, both windows down and not a single hair in its place.⁣

Perfect.

Annabelle had spent the better part of the morning sitting in her spare bedroom slash storage room slash office, papers messied in a dozen stacks across the floor and a candle burning in the corner. Her mom would have been rolling her eyes at the flame near the papers, but it smelled nice.⁣

Adulthood as a kid had seemed like you could just do whatever you wanted, whenever you wanted. You had your own cool stuff. Funny, because that’s kind of how kidhood seemed now that Annabelle was a grown up.⁣

She handled most of the family’s business from her Chromebook, but these pesky papers proceeded to perpetually pile up. At some point, it was time to sort them.⁣

The stacks were stacked. There was some sort of rhythm and logic to each stack - work to be done still - but this moment was for something else. ⁣

A break. ⁣

The drive to White Duck was short, the line quick, and Ember took Annabelle’s order with a story and a grin. An Iced Blueberry Shortbread Breve Latte, double fun-strawed in an effort to spark color into the dreariness of the paperwork mush.⁣

Annabelle would return and maybe spend a drifting hour in Eddie’s grade school artwork. Or remember time passed through old utility bills and the notes Michael scribbled in the margins of a Rand McNally atlas and printed Mapquest and Google Maps routes for various road trips.⁣

As she pulled away from her favorite little coffee stand, Annabelle paused to snap a photo of the quirky little metal duck in their garden as if it was sipping her breve. She printed the photo out when she got home. ⁣

Annabelle set the photo in a pile, and took another sip.

RE-STOCK ALERT⁣
BLUE SHIRTS ARE BACK⁣

Order for pickup via whiteduckmerch.com, or stop by the stand to grab yours.⁣

Wear what the baristas wear! Perfect sun shirts, these are the same shirts the team often wears, and they’re quite nice. ⁣

Sublimated printing means that kind where the ink is part of the fabric instead of extra weight and Peely McPeelerson. Yay for nice shirts!⁣

*quack*⁣



~ translation ~⁣

I am a duck. A duck. As I sit here, held not by my own legs and accord but my weight resting less-than-securely in the hand of a stranger, I think of you, and us, and life.⁣

Perhaps our webbed feet are willing - and our thin orange legs are able - to carry us forward. It could be both body and mind have the strength to move us, and yet here we are held by another.⁣

Will I fly? Will I jump to my own motion? Will I stay going wherever this giant human (as all humans are) takes me?⁣

I do not know. I am comfortable, and not having to expend much energy, so there’s that. Doing the things is hard, so maybe it’s nice here. ⁣

But maybe the human wants something different than I. Maybe the human will go humanly about its human way and I want ducky things.⁣

Which would suggest I make the less-comfortable play and exit the hand. ⁣

Decisions, decisions. ⁣

QUACK

MERCH DROP⁣

G’morning, Monday people. As you opened your social media app, was this what you were hoping to see?⁣

New, 32oz White Duck water bottles to help you hydrate through the blistering Florida summer? That happily shock the eye with a vibrant pink, melting to a soothing purple when they experience a chilling temperature?⁣ And cost $7.01?

Then be fulfilled, like your water bottle will be filled, because we have these now. A good supply, ready for your daily hydration need, or your beach days, or your pool moments. ⁣

Cheers to the color-changing water bottle, and cheers to you. May you stay hydrated, and may your smile be frequent.⁣

NOW LET’S GET THIS MONDAY GOING

There once was a smile and a duck and a drink,⁣
And the name of that drink was “SURPRISE!” (shimmery)⁣
The line grew long, the sun beat down, ⁣
But quick those ducky folk move (huh!)⁣

Soon may the Windowman come,⁣
To bring us Lotus and straws of fun,⁣
Espresso Shakes for everyone, ⁣
We’ll hit 19 and go⁣

The line moved fast, the grins were out⁣
A friend from up the line gave shout⁣
The White Duck team were all about⁣
Slinging those drinks you love⁣

Soon may the Windowman come,⁣
To bring us Lotus and straws of fun,⁣
Mochas and Lattes for everyone, ⁣
We’ll hit 19 and go⁣

You ordered drinks, and donuts too,⁣
The hot fresh ones with cinnamon (woo!)⁣
You had a chat, we had it back,⁣
Cuz that’s just how we do⁣

Soon may the Windowman come,⁣
To bring us Lotus and straws of fun,⁣
A nice iced chai for everyone, ⁣
We’ll hit 19 and go⁣

Happy White Duck Weekend you buncha greats,⁣
We’re happy to see your wonderful face⁣
So stop on by your favorite place⁣
(And we’re fixing those potholes soon, yikes!)⁣

Soon may the Windowman come,⁣
To bring us Lotus and straws of fun,⁣
A brilliant beverage for everyone, ⁣
We’ll hit 19 and go
