It’s the most beautiful time of the year! Its full of laughter and cheer, joy and good times. It can also be a time for companies to join their products together and sell them as a pair.

My favorite pairing is Twizzlers (my favorite candy) and the NHL. The candy company remade the shape of these cherry flavour candies to look like mini ice skates! Tell me, how cool is that!  I had to buy them to check it out and yeah, they look like the real thing.

It is hard to get a NHL License Agreement. The agreement is dealt with the marketing division of the NHL Enterprise. The product needs to be in the public eye for five years at least. If your thing is shirts, then you need to be talking to the Players Association. All Associations have strict rules and regulations to follow. The NHL has given their name in the past to furniture, hats, clothing, toys, sports gear and much more.

This article is not about agreements, it’s about candy, the NHL and the holiday! There is not much around on the web for NHL candy. But, I did see some.

Candy to some is an immature gift. It could be. But as a hockey lover nothing is really immature for the holiday. It’s just a gift! So, with that in mind I looked up Hershey’s. Yes, they have a few NHL treats. They do make some candies and chocolates that have a NHL buzz about them. In case you are wondering, I am a chocolate lover, there is no bad chocolate in my world!

I noticed that the private candy makers are really the ones who make candies/ chocolates that includes the NHL logo. Some companies make a package with your favorite team colors. One adds six candy canes and a chocolate puck. Others already are selling chocolates in the shape of the cup. Its a bit early for that, I think?

I have a list of a few candy websites for the hockey lover on your list:,, and

So you have it, a hockey lovers guide to paradise! Remember more is merry, liquor is great and all eat-able gifts are welcome! So, bring it on!



Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, her team is always the Toronto Maple Leafs. Instead of falling for movie stars, Rochelle fell for hockey players. As she grew up, her passion grew to include wanting to be the first female NHL player, the first female 'water' girl for her team and catching a true NHL puck. She did try for the puck, only to learn that A) the puck could have killed her, if she tried to get it or B) you needed to buy one. Years later Rochelle still loves the game! Now a days instead of wanting to join the players, (don't let her fool you, she still wants to join the team) she writes about them. Her one wish in the world is to be alive when the Toronto Maple Leafs win their next Stanley Cup! Rochelle has a certificate in Marketing/Communications at the British Columbia School of Technology and a writing certificate from Simon Fraser University. She has started her own writing company, "From Rochelle's Pen".
