SENSUS: Halloween Candy

We polled the locker room to find out which Halloween treats need to be fired into the sun.

by Craig Medaglia @craigmedaglia / Ottawa Senators

As the kids get ready to hit the streets for Halloween tonight, we asked the Senators about their least favourite candy to receive while trick-or-treating.

Pretty straight forward question: if you could eliminate any one candy/treat from being distributed on Halloween, what would it be?

1. Connor Brown: Coffee Crisp

"They always snuck them into those little pre-made packets. As a kid, I remember picking those out. It was more of an adult candy though because I like them now but when I was younger I didn't like them at all."


2. Brady Tkachuk: Anything sour

"I'm not a sour guy. Let's keep it nice and classy."

3. Christian Wolanin: Candy Corn

"The answer is candy corn. One million percent. Terrible. It was bad enough in the big bags but even worse if they took the time to give you less in a small baggie. I love candy but I'm not going to eat candy corn."


4. Vladislav Namestnikov: Licorice

"Is licorice a candy? I hate that stuff."


5. Tyler Ennis: *declined to provide an answer*

"As soon as I got home, I'd pour out all my candy and divide it up into all my favourites. I liked everything though. I've never not had Halloween candy that I didn't like. I like any food really. I guess I wasn't huge on Rockets but I always ate them as much as I could. I love chips too…any kind of chips…I was obsessed with chips. Twix: unreal. Coffee Crisp: unreal. They're all delicious."


6. Logan Brown: Rockets

"American Smarties (aka Rockets). They're kind of round, chalky sugar tablets. Totally different from the candy-coated chocolate Canadian ones."


7. Craig Anderson: Ferrero Rocher

"It was super rare to get those on Halloween though but I definitely did when I was a kid."


8. Mark Borowiecki: Rice Krispies Squares

"You know what I hated getting as a kid on Halloween? Those Rice Krispies Squares. We went to the store the other day to get candy and there were those stupid little individually wrapped Rice Krispie Squares. Apologies to anyone who is handing those out tonight but maybe don't? I wasn't a fan."


9. Dylan DeMelo: Coffee Crisp

"I'm not a big Coffee Crisp guy."


10. Nick Paul: Mars(?)

"I'm not a big chocolate guy but thinking back on when I used to indulge myself. What are those chocolate bars that have the caramel in them? Mars, maybe? It has the gooey caramel…I don't remember what it was called but when you bite into it the caramel kind of oozes out of it. Yeah…Mars…I think…I don't know."
