You can feel it in the air. It’s that time of year in WNY where Mother Nature can’t decide what season we are in. Yep, those changes in temperature are back and can only mean one thing… fall is just around the corner. If you are ready to kiss summer goodbye and say hello to all things fall, you’ve come to the right place.  One of the best things about fall is the seasonal treats that are making a return. Specifically, the infamous Apple. Cider. Donut. If you have been waiting all year for one of these babies, the wait is finally over!  Read on to see all the places around the Buffalo area and WNY that offer these sugary sweet creations.
