While all these other ideas are delicious, I think it’s safe to say when you need a little bit of sweet in your life candy is the only way to really get the job done. But for a fun twist on the candy bar why not treat your guests to some sugar on wheels and book a local candy food truck like The Sugar Cube based in Calgary. It’s sure to be an experience your guests remember long after the sugar high is over!
We also had delicious afternoon treats from The Sugar Cube. The founder and Chief of Sweets (I just made that title up), Alyssa, also attended one of my earlier workshops and I was amazed by her business, ethic and lifestyle she was building around her purple candy truck. One of my favourite things about Alyssa is her commitment to her brand. Even before attending my workshop on branding, she was living and breathing her brand by wearing purple, and looking + living the part. And a girl with a candy truck is a girl after my own heart! After all, who doesn’t love candy!?
2. Food trucks. Food trucks are all sorts of awesome. I saw the coolest one at Bridal Fantasy in Calgary this year. It’s called the sugar cube. I’ve also had couples have hot dog stands outside of their dances for guests to grab a snack.

Some candies are exclusive to the club, and you’ll have access to new releases before anyone else. Regardless, sugar will end up on your front step one way or another. Sounds like a sweet deal to us.
Alyssa Tilston, BComm’12, launched The Sugar Cube, Calgary’s mobile candy store, in March 2013. When she is not selling sweets on the streets, she works as a Marketing Manager at Sure Systems Ltd. On this episode of the podcast, we discuss her undergraduate experience at UCalgary, how to successfully use social media to grow a small business, and debate whether or not chips should be considered candy.
A few friends and I were out and about Friday night in Calgary. While we were walking around Inglewood, we stumbled upon this amazing purple truck filled with heavenly sugary treats and my favorite, vanilla Coke.
Alyssa Tilston, who founded The Sugar Cube, has operated the food truck in Calgary for over a year now.
Her love for candy developed as a young girl and it grew even more as she watched her aunt and uncle launch a successful candy store in Ontario. From there, it inspired her to go one step further and try something different in the realm of food trucks.
We called up some of Calgary's best food trucks for this event, including Bento Burrito, Red Wagon, and The Sugar Cube, to serve up some delicious lunch and dessert. The Museum of Interactive Entertainment (MOIE) set up shop and let families play through their collection of interactive games. The Aviation Program at Mount Royal University also graciously gave tours in their state-of-the-art flight simulator.
If you have an insatiable sweet tooth, then you'll likely appreciate the city's newest food truck, Sugar Cube. Blue whales, wine gums and gummi coke bottles are just a few of the sweet treats you can load up on from Calgary's mobile sugar rush. Don't tell your dentist. (sugarcubeyyc.ca, @sugarcubeyyc)
The Sugar Cube is the newest addition to Calgary’s street food scene and it’s stirring up quite a sweet buzz. Alyssa Tilston and Justin Enns, the creators of The Sugar Cube, came up with the idea for a candy truck when they were on a trip to Disney World in the Fall of 2012. “We had seen how kids and adults would light up when visiting the parks and we especially noticed how crazy everyone would get over the Disney candy and treats,” says Tilston. “We knew that we wanted to start something fun in Calgary that would get people excited.”

What’s your favourite favour of all time? My favourite favour of all time was a wedding I did this year. We made candy centre pieces – for each table we had vases that were filled with a different type of candy alongside some great floral arrangements. Each table was named after the type of candy that was in the centre piece. Guests could then go around all evening from table to table, mingling, but also filling up their very own favour bag. It was a great idea to get people up and talking – and it was so much fun!
