Advent Calendar Contents

Our Candy Advent Calendar contains sweet, sour, and other gummy candies we curate yearly. We want to give you a taste of nostalgic classics and let you discover new favourites! It’s the perfect gift for yourself, friends, family, staff, and clients that’ll last all month!

Check out the Sugar Cube's Candy Picker from December 1, 2023, to search for your candy! But, before you do, utilize the guessing sheet included with your calendar to wager what flavour you might be sampling and give it a name while you're at it! It makes for a super interactive anticipated moment in your day!

For the Full 25-Day Advent Calendar, we do a Gluten & Dairy Free option and a Peanut & Nut Free option.

There is a $5 surcharge per calendar for allergens. Please ensure you have selected the correct allergen variant when checking out. We cannot make these changes after you have completed checkout.

Due to the high volume of Advent Calendars, we are producing, we are unable to accommodate special requests. However, we will not include spicy or licorice candies in our 2023 Calendars. You're safe!

We know the boxes look very cute all lined up, but please only remove them from their shrink wrap once you've reached those specific days. We wrap the boxes to keep them fresh as long as possible! We recommend putting any leftovers in a Tupperware container to preserve freshness for those pieces of candy you couldn't eat on the day and would like to enjoy later.

At this time we are only able to ship our product within Canada. We are working on avenues to ship to the USA in the future. If you have a friend in Canada who is also shopping, have them take advantage of the bulk purchase option and when the receive those Calendars they can ship it off to you as a gift instead!
