About Sugar Britches

Welcome to Sugar Britches, an old-fashioned candy store nestled in historic downtown Rockton, IL. I built this little store for my favorite little town. I wanted to create a destination for families, couples, teenagers, foodies, both local and visitors alike. I wanted to be part of the happiness people feel when they rediscover a piece of their childhood. We have over 200 jars of bulk candy, 10 drawers of saltwater taffy and a generous offering of your favorite nostalgic candies. But that wasn’t enough for me! I also learned how to make chocolates, caramels, toffee, brittle, marshmallows, turtles and fudge. We make all our chocolate confections using fine Belgian chocolate and manage some seriously unique ingredients. And a lot of booze.

This video is from our store launch. We are no longer running a campaign. However, we would still like your money so come in and buy some candy.
We invite you to visit us when you’re in the neighborhood. We’d love to show you around and have you sample some of our favorites.
