    "Its difficult for Paula to let go of any control because she is so passionate about the quality of the product, Huber explained. Its possible that when the time is right we look at other options, but for now we are happy with the way it is.

    "We can't wait to be a part of Paula's upcoming birthday party next Tuesday morning! Plus, for every dozen donuts purchased throughout the day, Paula will donate $1 to Autism Services. That's a lot of dough! A special thank you to all of our friends at Paula's Donuts and Mix 96!"

    "Why you knead it: First of all, any doughnut place that caters weddings deserves an A+ already. Paulas claims to use a super secret ingredient that you wont find in any of the big chain store donuts, so they have to be amazing. Their Frosted Angel Cream is filled with homemade whipped cream and topped with a layer of fresh icing and glittery sprinkles. You can even order it to be the size of an actual cake."

    "Paulas Donuts: These doughnuts absolutely rank with some of the best Ive ever had. More specifically, their sour cream old-fashioned absolutely hits the mark. Theyve nailed it."

    "There's no better place to start than with the store that sets the bar for many Buffalonians: Paula's Donuts. While some may say that the bellwether of a fine donut shop is its fry cake, I contend that the peanut stick is a far better indicator." "A single bite makes you realize that you're eating the real deal, and not a simulacrum of a donut."

    "After losing the lease and moving out of her long-time store at 308 Kenmore Ave. last weekend, Paula Huber and her crew moved into more spacious digs at 2319 Sheridan Drive.

    The store was very busy with some new faces, Huber reported this morning.

    "It seems like a lot of the neighborhood are really supporting us," she said."

    ""It's bittersweet," Huber said. "I hate to leave, but we're excited about the new location."

    After losing the lease on her current store near the Budwey's supermarket (a CVS Pharmacy is planned for the site), Huber said she searched for a nearby replacement, but couldn't find a suitable space she could afford to renovate. Instead, she ended up 2.5 miles away at 2319 Sheridan Drive in the Town of Tonawanda.

    "The people who walked here every day and actually built the business can't get to the new place, so that's why I'm torn," Huber said. "These people become friends and we're really going to miss them.""

    "Kevin O'Neill showed up for work with no location set up ahead of time, and let the viewers offer suggestions for where he should go live. Paula's Donuts was the most popular suggestion (among viewers and Channel 2 employees).
    So Kevin went live and interviewed Paula and her husband, even know they both had no idea they'd be on TV when they woke up for the day."

    "I'd been off doughnuts for a while. I thought I'd kicked the habit. I even almost lost my doughnut belly. Then this past summer, my son discovered Paula's Donuts. I'm hooked again. I'm trying to cut down to once a week, but so far, no cigar, just more doughnuts"

    "We loved the cheese doughnut*, its silky, tangy cream cheese filling nestled in a fluffy glazed doughnut with the most delicate of doughnut crusts; the cinnamon roll had a sparing cinnamony swirl and that same barely crusty edge. The rasied doughnut dough is pillowy and soft; the glazes, not too sweet or sticky."

    Paula's Donuts - Best Sugar Fix
    3380 Kenmore Ave., 862-4246

    I lived within five minutes of Paula's Donuts on Kenmore Avenue for about two years, and in that time, I drove by its red-lettered sign roughly nine to ten times per week. I never stopped. Then, somehow, a peanut cream-filled beauty came my way. And I was in love. In fact, I damn near OD'd on cream, and can't even recall where that tasting occurred. I should note that doughnuts are pretty much my favorite food; as a tyke, I demanded them as a birthday party dessert over - ewwwwww - cake. My family used to joke that I might someday be a Dickie's Donuts corporate executive. So, yeah. I know 'nuts. (Please don't quote me out of context.) And Paula's are the best I've ever had, period. Out-of-town family members from as close as Ithaca and as far as Nebraska agree - there's nothing like them. There is no best doughnut category this year, and Paula's has won the honor before, but I won't let this issue pass without Paula.

    "Walking in, as you can imagine, it smelled fantastic. The shop was pretty tiny but had a couple seats if you wanted to grab a coffee and donut on the spot. As soon as you ented you are able to take a look at their "donut wall" which includes pretty much every traditional donut you may want and also a nice assortment of muffins and cookies to satisfy everyones sweet tooth."

    "While you might not think of donuts as a traditional Super Bowl food, at Paula's Donuts in Buffalo, they make something special for the big game.

    "We have what is called the Texas donut which I like to call the big donut. It's a round donut and it serves 5 to 7 people. We make it specially at this time of year for football season in a football shape," said Meegan Lococo, an employee at Paula's Donuts.

    Lococo says the shop has been offering the specially-themed donuts for a few years now and they're growing in popularity,"We decorate them specially for team preference or however you like.""
