Incorporating Cotton Candy into your Event!

The Sugar Cube started as a mobile candy store in the summer of 2013 bringing the freshest, most delicious candy to events all over Calgary and surrounding area. Birthdays, weddings, corporate parties, food truck frenzies – we do them and much more. More than just a food truck, we have grown our offering to include candy buffets, a subscription service, apparel and gourmet cotton candy.

That’s right, gourmet cotton candy. 


When was the last time you had cotton candy? At a movie theatre? A carnival? What were your flavour choices, red or blue? Those aren’t flavours!

Sour watermelon
Cappuccino
Birthday cake
Pina colada
Cinnamon bun
Canadian maple
Cola
Bubblegum

THOSE are flavours – and they are just some of the flavours you can get from The Sugar Cube.

There’s something special, even nostalgic, about cotton candy. It’s a delicious but light snack that puts a smile on everyone’s face.


Looking to make it extra special?
Cotton candy favours can be customized with gourmet paper sticks, sprinkles and personalized tags on each puff.


How about some adult cotton candy?
Grapefruit vodka
Rum and coke
Gin and tonic
Ya, those are flavours too.  And those are just a few! There are much more where those came from!

 


Going for a more minimal approach?
Let us provide you with some of our gourmet cotton candy to garnish some drinks at your next event. Nothing sweetens up your cause for celebration like some of our champagne cotton candy to top off your bubbly for the night!


Make a buffet out of it!
Select a mixture of different flavours and we will set up an entire cotton candy buffet for you and all your guests to enjoy!

Interested in having something more interactive?
We can bring our gourmet cotton candy carts to your event and spin fresh cotton candy right before your guests eyes. Everyone can handpick which flavour they would like to have and we will make them a puff the size of their head on a paper cone! We will even top it off with some colorful sprinkles!

Cotton Candy Fun Facts!

We LOVE Cotton Candy here at The Sugar Cube so much that we wanted to share with you all some of our favorite fun facts about this tasty treat! Listed below are 5 facts about Cotton Candy that you didn’t know you needed to know!

 

William Morrison was the first to invent cotton candy back in 1897! The name “Cotton Candy” was then later trademarked by another dentist by the name of Dr. Josef Lascaux.

Contrary to popular belief, cotton candy is actually the less of all evils when it comes to candy and sweets (with only 1 tbsp of sugar in each puff – and less than 50 calories per puff, it is actually a special treat that parents don’t have to feel guilty about their kids consuming).

Just how thin is it? A strand of cotton candy is actually thinner than a strand of human hair!

We know this sugary snack as Cotton Candy here, but it also goes by the names of Fairy Floss in both Finland and Australia. Probably its most unique name is in the Netherlands where it is called Suikerspin which translates to Sugar Spider!

December 7th is National Cotton Candy Day! Mark it in your calendars so that you don’t forget!
