Trick or Treat: The Flyers as Halloween Candy

Happy Halloween, Flyers fans! I hope you all indulged in sweet treats and stuffed yourself so full that Willy Wonka himself would blush. Or maybe you’re into the spooky side of the holiday and had fun scaring people. Either way, the Flyers aren’t really fun to write about anymore so I’m making them fun. Here are the Flyers as the treats you get on Halloween!

Sean Couturier: Pixie Sticks

Pixie Sticks are sickeningly sweet, and yet you can’t get enough of them. That sugar high they put you on sure is something, huh?

Claude Giroux: Hershey’s Chocolate Bar

Probably the most underrated candy of all time, Hershey’s chocolate bars are a classic. They’re a staple in every household. Eat them on their own or roast them with marshmallows and graham crackers and build a s’more, Hershey’s chocolate is simply the greatest.

Travis Konecny: Atomic Fireball

Who knew such a little candy could cause so much havoc in your mouth? You aren’t sure how you feel about other people’s fiery candy, but this one is yours and you love it.

Scott Laughton: Charleston Chew

It’s not the world’s best candy, but take a bite and you’ll be super surprised by how good it is. The nougat packs a punch that won’t give up, and it’s all wrapped up in a feisty packaging.

Jori Lehtera: A Toothbrush

No one wants a toothbrush.

Oskar Lindblom: Whatchamacallit

You’re still not entirely sure where it fits on your favorites list. It’s not like eating a Hershey’s bar. But you’re still super excited when you get to have one.

Nolan Patrick: Kit Kats

Kit Kats are one of the best candies of all time. They also break easily. That’s part of the deal, though.

Wayne Simmonds: Pop Rocks

Pop Rocks used to be your favorite candy in the world. You don’t love them as you once did, and you’re considering swapping them with your friends for something else. But Pop Rocks will always have a spot on you Favorite Candies list.

James van Riemsdyk: Fun Dip

You had it when you were a kid and you were obsessed with it. Your parents didn’t get it, so they wouldn’t buy it for you and the company stopped making it. But now it’s back and just as good as you remembered.

Jake Voracek: Jolly Ranchers

Admit it, you love Jolly Ranchers. They’re not the first candy that comes to mind when you think about your favorites, but they’re definitely up there with the best of the best.

Jordan Weal: Jujyfruits

They’re okay but you’re probably going to have to sit in the penalty box for two minutes trying to pick them out of your teeth.

Dale Weise: Smarties

Smarties are a step up from getting a toothbrush, but still… No one wants smarties.

Christian Folin: Air Heads Mystery Flavor

Sometimes they’re good. Sometimes they’re bad. Good luck figuring out what flavor you’ve got.

Shayne Gostisbehere: Milky Way

It’s so smooth sometimes you wonder if eating one is illegal. One of your all-time favorites.

Radko Gudas: Candy Corn

Candy corn is extremely polarizing. Either you love it or you hate it. Those who love it will swear by it until they die. Those who hate it will never EVER eat it.

Robert Hagg: Tootsie Rolls

They’re not the flashiest of candies, and if your friend wants to trade you a Kit Kat for a Tootsie Roll and a Sugar Daddy you’re going to do it. But you’re more than happy to eat them on your own as well.

Andrew MacDonald: Sugar Daddies

Sugar Daddies aren’t the worst candy ever, as long as you only get a taste. But put a Sugar Daddy out on the ice for too long and you’re going to regret it.

Ivan Provorov: Snickers

All these other options are good, but what’s the one candy you reach for at all times of the year? What’s the one candy that never lets you down?

Travis Sanheim: Twix

It’s packaging is sometimes extremely confused. You still aren’t sure what “Left Twix” and “Right Twix” is all about. But you do know that it’s a top-tier candy that deserves a lot better treatment than it’s given.

Brian Elliott: M&Ms

They’re boring as hell, but at least they get the job done when you really need them. There are so many different versions of them, though. You never know what you’re going to get.

Michal Neuvirth: Gum

You probably should have thrown that piece of gum out a long time ago. But somehow it’s still here. Seriously, it’s lost all it’s flavor by now. Get rid of it.
