About Sugar Momma’s
What started as an idea for a candy shop blossomed to include fresh, home-made pie, frozen delights, and gifts for locals and visitors alike.
Opened in 2013 by Tammy Bruckerhoff, Sugar Momma’s was inspired by the original Sugar Momma, her mother, Sylvia Bruckerhoff. Infamously known as the Pie Queen in her hometown of Rhineland, Missouri, Sylvia’s delicious from-scratch pies were coveted. She baked pies for local restaurants, church events, as well as family and friends. One year, she made over 600 pies!
The secret behind her notoriously delicious pies? Everything was from scratch. Home-made crust with lard from the hogs, eggs from the chickens, and milk from the cows on the farm. She hand-picked apples, cherries, gooseberries, grapes, strawberries, blackberries, plums and raised her own rhubarb. Sylvia instilled that kind of home-grown love that’s infused into every homemade pie today.
So Much More Than Just Pie
In addition to pies, we delight in offering nostalgic candy, retro candy, bulk candy, bulk salt water taffy, German candies, Amish candies, Jelly Belly . . . and so much more. Something as simple as a piece of candy can make someone’s day, and that’s our goal at Sugar Momma’s.
