Open Post: Hosted By The Hockey Fan Who Ate Mayo-Dipped Licorice
We all have our food-based guilty pleasures. I, for one, enjoy candy corn. It tastes like congealed sugar, but that’s part of its disgusting charm. Other people pop green olives like they’re M&Ms. It’s not our place to judge what someone else consumes. Well, sometimes, anyway! People are questioning if we should more rigidly define what a “snack” is after seeing a Toronto Maple Leaf fan’s choice: licorice dipped in mayonnaise.
Complex described the scene:
A Toronto Maple Leafs fan is getting noticed on social media for dipping his licorice in a jar of mayonnaise and eating it.
The fan was front row outside of Scotiabank Arena watching game two of Toronto’s series vs. the Tampa Bay Lightning. After getting blown out in game one, the Leafs turned the tables with a 7-2 victory, so maybe the licorice/mayo combo is a good luck charm nobody’s thought of yet.

No one is fazed by his choice, so maybe this is a little-known Canadian hockey fan delicacy, which might explain why a Montreal Canadiens fan went viral for eating from a tub of mayo at a game a few years ago. Most internet commenters shared the vomit emoji after seeing the video while a few say that the container must actually be filled with vanilla pudding or cake icing. I choose to believe that this man has stumbled upon a new dunking-based snack. Does he usually bring mayonnaise to hockey games? Which goes better with mayo: Red Vines or Twizzlers? If he was willing to lug a bag of licorice and an entire jar of mayo through security, it’s gotta be worth trying!
