The Choking Legacy of Cinnabon.
Megamall sniffs, snuffs out Candyland

One of the joys of downtown St. Paul is the aroma of popcorn and caramel wafting from Candyland out onto Wabasha Street, but officials apparently have a different scents-ibility at the Mall of America.
Candyland owners Brenda and Doug Lamb were booted out of the Bloomington mall this week when, they say, a mall leasing agent said their products stink and refused to extend their lease.
After more than 10 years at the megamall -- they were among the original tenants -- the Lambs said they waited for months to get their lease renewal papers, but mall officials kept putting them off.
"We finally got a call back; he said they'd decided not to renew our lease," Brenda Lamb said. "We asked why and he said: 'Because of your smell, you stink.' We were shocked."
"We have a strong scent, I know that," she said. "But Cinnabon does, too."
I don't know why I thought that was funny, but in all seriousness, Cinnabon is totally rank.
