We used to go to MMMuffins every morning before school. I loved their Apple Cinnamon muffins. Those were the days.

Its disappearance must be due to brand/marketing mismanagement rather than market trends. That's my theory, 'cuz they had a tasty product.

The article says that there are two left in Canada. One of which is in downtown Toronto in the PATH.

That same article suggests that when the lease ends it may end those locations, turning them into something else.

For those of you who are going to reply "TL;DR" let me summarize this total waste of newspaper column inches/net bandwidth in one sentence (is it that slow of a news day for the Star to waste space on this?)

MTY Group is propping up yet another dying/dead mall food court chain.

Whoop-tee-doo...
Friendly reminder: South Street is the second coming of Licks, and Works Burger is a bad ripoff of Red Robin put out by those purveyors of garbage, MTY Shit Restaurants Group.

Back in the 80s, their chocolate chip cookies were amazing, thick, full of chips, soft.

From the article:

"MTY is more interested in the high-traffic locations of where the two Mmmuffins are and will likely transform the remaining two stores into another food concept once the franchise leases expire in the next two years."

Back in the day when I worked downtown I would hit up the store in the Path at Scotia Bank Plaza. Don’t know if it’s still around or not.

Their corn muffins were a favourite with my dad and I.

We used to buy a whole pack of 6 or a dozen sometimes as a nice treat.

Yup, those were the days, indeed! Sigh. Winking Face

Back in Victoria we had Marvelous Muffins I n the 80s/90s. Basically like eating a big piece of cake. So good. I loved their butterscotch chip it ones, and any of their fruit ones with cream cheese filling and frosting. OMG so good.

I think it was the same chain, just went as "mmmarvelous mmmuffins".

Really rings a bell now recollecting on those days with them.

They were indeed the best!
