Sweet-tooth heaven comes to Rosemont this summer, when Sugar Factory American Brasserie opens its first mid-west location at MB Financial Park.
The new 8,000-square-foot brasserie and retail store will deliver the “MTV meets Willy Wonka” appeal that has made Sugar Factory an international favorite. Created by a team of world-class chefs, the menu selections will include everything from pancakes and sweet and savory crepes to salads, burgers and pizzas, all available throughout the day.
Sugar Factory’s legendary desserts will also be available at the new brasserie. The King Kong Sundae will pack a sweet punch for up to 12 people with 24 scoops of ice cream, two cupcakes, sprinkles, caramel sauce, fudge sauce, strawberry sauce, marshmallows, Reese’s Pieces, chocolate chip cookies, crushed waffle cones, gummy bears, white chocolate strawberry shavings, sliced bananas, toasted walnuts and whipped cream, and then topped off with giant swirly pops. Sugar Factory’s decadent shakes, hot chocolate and frozen hot chocolate selections will include the chocolate cookie jar shake, made with Oreo cookie crumbles, chocolate chips, caramel, vanilla ice cream and pure melted chocolate, topped with whipped cream and Oreo cookies; coconut hot chocolate; classic frozen hot chocolate; and peanut butter hot chocolate. Wow. If ever there was a place to go to break a diet, this is it!
Sugar Factory’s premium spirits will mix sweet treats with spiked adult beverages, including Sugar Factory’s signature 36-ounce alcohol-infused smoking candy goblets. The Lollipop Passion is made with coconut, pineapple and melon flavors, and adorned with candy necklaces and swirly lollipops. The White Gummi is a playful blend of fruit and floating gummi worms. The martini selections will include the Blow Pop Martini, finished off with a Pop Rocks rim and Blow Pop in the glass, as well as the S’Mores Martini, a comforting combination of chocolate and marshmallows, garnished with a graham cracker rim.
The goblet and daiquiri bar will provide guests with signature Sugar Factory duck yards and goblets. The bar will allow patrons to walk around the Rosemont area and enjoy a delicious drink while they shop. A Chocolate Lounge will be a part of the sweet new venue, allowing guests the opportunity to enjoy the brand’s popular Almond Joy Martini.
The brasserie will feature a sampling of the company’s signature treats and merchandise, including their world-famous Couture Pops. Synonymous with the Sugar Factory brand, Couture Pops have become a pop culture phenomenon and have made confections a celebrity accessory. Britney Spears, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, Rihanna, the Jonas Brothers, Sting, Charlie Sheen, Kim Kardashian and Drake are just a few of the celebrities who have been spotted with the sparkly lollipops.
