Bring Your Sweet Tooth to the Sugar Cube!
The Sugar Cube has all the wonder of an old fashioned candy store mixed with modern choices and plenty of sweet options for the whole family!
Walking into the store you will be amazed at the variety and selection available. There is a whole wall of self serve candy jars, and at least 20 different types of licorice! (I didn’t even know there were that many varieties in existence!)
Whether you are looking for a unique chocolate bar from around the world, color specific candies, or fresh made fudge and caramels, The Sugar Cube is the perfect place to stop by.
The Sugar Cube was opened in 2006 by Alyssa Theodore and Kimberly Theodore who believe that good sweets should be treated like any fine food. You can feel their care as they greet you when you walk in and offer to help you find that perfect treat.
The location on King Street in Old Town Alexandria made The Sugar Cube a great stopping place as we headed home from the waterfront. Parking is available on the street or at local parking garages; there is no parking lot for the candy store.
My children were very excited to be going to a candy store. I told them that they could each choose one treat while I filled a bag with assorted goodies from the candy jars.
My daughter found a Neapolitan lollipop that she clung to and my son was delighted to discover a bag of building block candies. When we got home he built a candy fort before beginning to devour it. I was impressed with the variety and assortment of sweets available at The Sugar Cube.
The Sugar Cube also offers candy making classes for children. You can check out the schedule on their website. The classes are held on site and are age specific for children ages 4-6, 6-8, and 8-12.
Due to space limitations, parents do not attend with their children. Your child gets to create and enjoy a yummy masterpiece. Some of the classes offered include candy sushi, edible flowers, and cherry delights. Yum! Maybe they will make classes for adults someday too!
While I was at the store I got to peak in on a birthday party taking place. Similar to the candy classes, The Sugar Cube offers birthday party packages that include candy making and games.
The party I peaked in on was for an eight year old girl. The ten little girls in attendance were clearly having a wonderful time as they mixed ingredients to make candy sushi. The birthday girl’s mother told me she was thrilled to find a party place that wasn’t laser tag since that seems to be the current popular party venue of her children’s friends.
I think a birthday party at The Sugar Cube would be awesome. Mixing birthdays, cupcakes, candy, presents and friends? Sounds like a winning combination!
If you’re looking for a fun class for your child, a birthday party location, or just some really good sweets, The Sugar Cube is a shop you won’t want to miss!
