Sugartit (also known as Gunpowder) is a former community in Boone County, Kentucky, United States. It was located at the intersection of U.S. Route 42 and Kentucky Route 237 between the cities of Florence and Union. According to one account, the community received its name when the local men would spend all day at its general store and return home late for dinner; their wives would remark that they "had to have a sugartit [a pacifier made of cloth tied around a sugar cube] at the store". The community no longer exists; the last surviving structure was the Sugartit Asphalt factory.
