The Candy Kart is the current kart under the possession of Vanellope von Schweetz. Her previous kart, the Likkity Split, was destroyed by Taffyta and the other racers in an attempt to keep her from entering the Random Roster Race.
In exchange for the return of his Medal of Heroes, Vanellope has Ralph break into the Kart Bakery and help her make a new kart. The two go through the mini-game with several mishaps, including smothering the kart in frosting and sprinkles in an attempt to decorate it, and accidentally destroying much of the machinery. Despite all this, Vanellope is thrilled and ecstatic to have a real kart. The two are just signing their proud creation when they are interrupted by King Candy and the security team.
Vanellope reveals to Ralph she doesn't know how to drive a real kart, and so the two barely escape Candy's forces into Diet Cola Mountain with Ralph's brute strength alone. Later on, Ralph makes a track for Vanellope to practice driving on by punching a trench into the ground, and she learns remarkably fast.
When King Candy deceives Ralph about the game's unplugging and Vanellope's emminent death, Ralph decides to destroy the Candy Kart "for Vanellope's own good".
When Ralph returns, he discovers the truth by interrogating Sour Bill, who is sweeping up the remains of the kart into a trash bin. Taking the scraps, Ralph breaks Fix-It Felix Jr. out of the Fungeon and implores him to fix the kart with his magic hammer. After rescuing Vanellope shortly after, all three head off in the Candy Kart to the Random Roster Race, and Vanellope drives off to try and cross the finish line.
