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. Sugartit has been noted for its unusual place name.
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 at the store". The community no longer exists; the last surviving structure was the Sugartit Asphalt factory.
