Last week I hung out with Hershey Canada to kick off hockey season at NHL FaceOff in Dundas Square. Being Canadian it’s my blood to like hockey! I usually get to at least one game per season and we finally got the HD hooked up so we can watch in style at home.
The day long event shut down Yonge Street and filled Dundas Square with hockey fans. I was blown away by just how MASSIVE the event was! It’s always fun to see Dundas Square transform, there was a massive stage on Yonge Street and the Tragically Hip were scheduled to play just before the puck dropped.
Hershey Canada was sampling their new Oh Henry! Big Crunch which is a twist on the original (my fav chocolate bar since I was a kid) and a layer of cookie crunch. TBH I ate like 3 that day they were so freaking good!
Fans were lined up all day to take a ‘shot’ at the Oh Henry! Big Crunch Hardest Shot Challenge. The top scorers had their names posted on the winners board all day. I put my GoPro in the net and was gave it a shot and although I didn’t make the score board I managed to hit the camera RIGHT after I said “I won’t hit it’. Camera was ok!
Everyone who took part was rewarded with an Oh Henry! Big Crunch loaded with peanuts, caramel, fudge, and chocolate.
In addition to all the sampling, Oh Henry! Canada is donating $50,000 to Food Banks Canada and they want to give YOU an NHL experience of a lifetime. For details on how you can STICK IT TO HUNGER and win, visit them at facebook.com/OhHenryCanada or click the image below.
Sean and I took Embot to see the Tragically Hip after school and it felt REALLY Canadian. Sadly the Leafs didn’t win that night.
Props to the crew at Gearwerx for pulling together a great activation! The team sampled 30,000 Oh Henry! Big Crunch bars throughout the day and gave away 500 limited edition shirts.
Here’s to hoping our home town team can make us proud this year! Go Leafs Go 🙂
