    The Gift the Keeps on Giving: Why Gift a Candy Club Subscription!

    We're getting closer and closer to Christmas! You may have stumbled upon our website in a search for a gift for that hard to shop for person. If you have a BIG candy lover in your life, why not surprise them with a Candy Club Subscription? Here's a couple of our top reasons why a Candy Club Subscription is an ultimate gift!

    Want to send someone a hint of what you'd like for Christmas this year? Send them this blog for a not so subtle hint why they should get you a Candy Club subscription!

    Three months, a year, or until the end of time... it's up to you!

    The Candy Club is flexible for any person and budget. If you're looking to keep your subscription for only a few months, let us know when you first purchase and we'll make a note to cancel it when you'd like it to end. We love a yearly subscription, as it gives you a full scope of what candy we get in over the course of a year!   

    Really love candy and want to keep the party going? Keep your subscription ongoing and we'll continue to surprise you with new and delicious treats!                                                                                          

    Something New Every Month!

    We switch up the candy club theme every month! While we do include seasonal boxes with candy suited for Christmas and Valentine's Day (See the Smore's and Blackberry Cobbler flavoured candy corn we included for Halloween above), we work hard to come up with new and exciting themes. 

    Some themes we've had in the past include...

    • Around the World (featuring candies from the UK, Netherlands, and US)
    • Under the Sea (Gummy Lobsters, Sea horses, Blue Raspberry Swirls)
    • On the Runway (Gummy Cockroaches, Cherry Cola Bottles, Avocados)

    No matter the theme, you'll be sure to get exclusive access to our newest candies! Did you know our Candy Club members got to try our Gummy Pizza Slices THREE MONTHS before we started putting them into advent calendars and other CandyGrams!

    We can also adjust your Candy Club to your candy preferences. One of our members loves pineapple rings, so we do our best to include those in every one of her CandyGrams!

    Great for sharing, gifting, or keeping all to yourself!

    What we love most about the Candy Club is that you can keep it all to yourself or share it around! Here's a couple of ways people have had some fun with their Candy Club that you could too!

    • Get it for your office and use it as a way to recognize outstanding employees!
    • Share it with your family for a monthly movie night snack!
    • Send every other month to a friend or family member that could use an extra pick me up!

    However you plan to use your Candy Club Subscription, we guarantee that it'll leave any candy love in awe on Christmas morning!

    How to Reuse Your Packaging!

    We try and reuse items as much as possible in the warehouse! One of the biggest questions we get from you is how you can keep your packaging out of the landfill. Unfortunately, we can't take back most of our old packaging to reuse due to food safety but we have lots of ideas for how you can use it! Read on to see our favourite uses for Sugar Cube Packaging AND the stuff we can take back to use again!

    CandyGram Cubes

     

    We love using Baby CandyGrams to hold office and crafting supplies! They're perfect for holding little bits and bobs that you don't want to waste a large container on! You can also use the wrap bags as mini garbage bags for your vehicle! 

    Ribbon has a million and one creative uses! We've seen it used for doll's clothing, homemade jewelry, and even as a cat toy! 

    If you come up with a creative use for your CandyGram Cubes, make sure to share and tag @SugarCubeYYC!

     

    Cotton Candy Tubs

     

    Once cleaned out, these work perfect for holding art supplies! We'll also use them for mixing test sugars! Why not use them to contain chocolate chips, coconut flakes, or as a container for leftovers!

    TIP: If you want your Cotton Candy Tub lid to last, do not let your child open it! They have a tendency to rip the thing open trying to get at the Cotton Candy!

    Candy Basket Boxes and Stuffing Material

     

    This is the one product that we can reuse most of the packaging for! If you order from us often, let us know in the Notes to Staff Section that you'd like us to take back some old basket materials. We will take these from your doorstep when we drop off your order!

    If you'd like to keep it for yourself, the boxes are great to be reused for gifting this holiday season! If you treat it well, the boxes can be used again and again!

    Shop The Shoot: Harry Potter Party with the Dunford Girls!

    You've likely seen a couple of the party photoshoots we've done with Laura Dunford and her daughters. We always have so much fun collaborating with them and this Harry Potter themed party was no exception!

    Laura found this adorable cart on Facebook Marketplace and painted it a dark green to match. Once she had the setting created, she let us run wild with our imagination and we created a Candy Trolley as close as you could get to one on the Hogwarts' Express! 

    Today, we're sharing how we brought this Candy Trolley to life with magical sweets and how you can recreate parts of it for your own Harry Potter themed party. After you're done reading this blog, head over to the Dunford Girls' Instagram Highlights and see how the rest of this magical bash came to be and the other vendors who added their own magical flourish to this celebration!

    Harry Potter Candy Buffet

    Straight from Honeydukes to your Home!

    We started building this table with the closest stuff we have to the real thing. We're talking Butterbeer, Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans, and Chocolate Frogs. We have all these products on our website, ready for you to purchase and have delivered to your doorstep! Click the links below to get taken to each product page. 

    Butterbeer

    Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans

    Chocolate Frogs: Ours do not come in the boxes you're used to seeing in the films but Laura found a printable that you can print to create your own! It's linked in the product description for you!

    Magical Candies to Request

    To fill out the rest of the cart, we looked through the Harry Potter Wiki and pulled candies that were close to candies mentioned in the books and films. You can request these candies in your order in the Notes to Staff section at checkout. We rotate candies often but will always include them (or something similar) if we have them in stock! If you let us know your theme, we'll pull some other fun things that you're sure to enjoy!

    These are the candy names we pulled from the Harry Potter series and the delicious sweets we used to represent them.

    Exploding Bon Bons: Munchies. The ones pictured here are grape and apple flavours.

    Cockroach Clusters: Gummy Cockroaches. Trust us... we won't get them confused with anything else.

    Jelly Worms: Gummy Worms. We used Neon Gummy Worms for an extra pop of colour!

    Sour Gummi Poppers: We didn't actually change the name for these! Request Sour Gummi Poppers for a bright, colourful, and delicious candy!

    You can request any of these candies in a Candy Bag or CandyGram!

    Harry Potter Acid Pops

    Extra Touches

    Not everything could be pulled from our existing CandyGram Candy so we pulled these extras from our Packaged Candy selection to add some finishing touches to the candy selection!

    Acid Pops: We use Astro Pops as a dupe for Acid Pops. They're a fun retro candy with a conical shape that feels quirkier than your average lollipop! Click here to get them

    Licorice Wands: Red Vines or Twizzlers depending on your preference. We don't always have them in stock but you can grab extra in your local grocery store if needed!

    Sugar Cube Harry Potter Candy Buffet

    With a couple finishing touches from Laura, we had an amazing Candy Trolley that delighted the young witches and wizards who attended the Harry Potter celebration!

    What's your favourite part of the Candy Trolley? Let us know in the comments. 

    Thanks again to Laura Dunford for involving us in another fun collaboration! Make sure you head over to the Dunford Girls' Instagram Highlights and check out the other aspects of this party, including the Great Hall, Ollivander's Wand Shop, and a Potions' Class with a questionable professor!

    Advent Calendar 2021 FAQ

     

    2021AdventCalendar

    It may only be September, but we're already busy in Santa's workshop for the holiday season (PS there's less than 100 days till Christmas!). We've been busy making some big changes to how our Advent Calendars work based on tons of great feedback we have received!

    Here, we outline some of the changes we're bringing to Advent Calendars for the 2021 year! Advent Calendars go on sale starting at $85 + GST on October 1st. Available while quantities last. 

    Sign up for our Early Bird Advent Calendar pricing starting at $75 + GST from September 25-30th ONLY by clicking this link! (That's the cheapest they will be all season!).

    Pick Your Packaging

    Traditionally, we've always used our plastic boxes to wrap your Advent Calendars. This year, we're introducing a cardboard version that will fully conceal your candy and reduce the amount of plastic in each Advent Calendar!

    With the cardboard version, we will continue to shrink wrap the boxes in groups to ensure freshness.

    Choose Your Own Adventure

    We love getting to bring you the newest and best of the candy world! For an experience that mixes classic favourites with stuff that you truly haven't tried before, try out our Holiday Adventure version. May contain spicy, sour, and lots of other exciting candies that you likely haven't tried before!

    If you're sharing this calendar with little ones or have a more conservative palette, you might want to opt for our Family Friendly version. We'll give you all the delicious classic candies you love, but without any of the crazy stuff like spicy mangoes!

    Dietary Restrictions

    At this time, we are able to confidently accommodate the following diet restrictions:

    • Gluten Free
    • Gluten and Dairy Free
    • Nut Free
    • Peanut Free
    • Halal

    If you are Vegan, we recommend getting the 12 Days of Christmas Calendar (which will be released November 1st) as we don't have a wide enough selection for vegan candies at this time to do the full advent.

    We are unable to accommodate other allergies, such as soy, at this time. If you have an egg allergy or multiple restrictions on the list above, please let us know in the "notes to staff" section at checkout. This may restrict your candy options and may incur additional fees.

    Shipping and Delivery

    All Advent Calendars will ship in time to arrive on your doorstep for December 1st, as long as the cut off days below are adhered to.

    If you are ordering an Advent Calendar to be shipped outside of Calgary, the order cut off date to ensure you receive your calendar on time is Friday, November 12th. If you order after that date, there is a high likelihood your calendar will arrive later in December.

    Local Calgary deliveries will all be made in the last two weeks of November to ensure freshness. Please note that if you have other items in your order, they will be held until your Advent Calendars are ready to ship! Advent Calendar cut off for Calgary deliveries is Thursday, November 25th (or earlier if we run out of stock!).

    Caring for your Advent Calendar

    We know that the boxes look very cute all lined up but please do not remove boxes from their shrink wrap until you've reached those specific days. We wrap the boxes to keep them as fresh as long as possible! Any candy you don't eat on the day and would like to enjoy later, we recommend putting in a Tupperware container to preserve freshness. 

    See which candies you got in your calendar!

    Each calendar will come with a batch number which will let you see exactly what you got in your calendar and let you request it in future orders!

    More details on this new feature coming soon!
