|“||This is the Sugar Bowl we're talking about! You know, where we hang out EVERY single day?||”|
|First appearance||Arthur and the Real Mr. Ratburn|
In "Sue Ellen Chickens Out," Carl Manino decides to sell the Sugar Bowl. It would then be turned into a Chickin Lickin'. Sue Ellen rallied her friends to protest against Chickin Lickin' to save the restaurant, but few of them had the desire or courage to stand up for its survival. By the end of the episode, Carl decides not to sell it because he found that he and his customers still loved it.
The Sugar Bowl has existed for at least 50 years. In Carl Manino's flashback from Sue Ellen Chickens Out the Sugar Bowl was seen in the 1950's. Back then, Carl Manino probably did not own it because he was mopping the floor. It was one of the main hangouts of high schooler's that attended Elwood City High School (one of them being Grandma Thora) and was decorated with pennants, records, and posters on the walls. It also had a jukebox.
In an alternate future in "D.W. and the Beastly Birthday," the Sugar Bowl became the "Sugar-Free Bowl."
Annual Baking Contest
In "How the Cookie Crumbles," it is shown that the Sugar Bowl hosts the annual baking competition for the annual Strawberry Festival in Elwood City. Muffy is a regular in this competition, having won twice so far. She won her second victory with her "Scrumptious Snackeroodles" which she and her friends made together, and now the Sugar Bowl sells these cookies as well.

- In the song "Elwood City: A Report," Buster claims that the Sugar Bowl is located "Right by Arthur's, in back of the school." While the map does depict as being in back of the school, it also shows it as being nearby Buster's house and the Brain's, rather than Arthur's.
- Inside on one of the walls, there is a poster of a yellow submarine, which may be a reference to the Beatles.
