New dessert shop opens in Rockford

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

ROCKFORD (WREX) — If you're craving cotton candy, ice cream or even a sno-cone, you can find them all at a new dessert shop.

Sweet N' Eats just opened on Walton Street near East State Street in Rockford. But while the name and location are new, the sweet shop itself actually isn't. It used to be called La Fiesta Candies, and was located on East State Street next to Chuck E. Cheese.

Store workers say they wanted to try a new location, but their specialties, like tasty ice cream, remain the same.

"We can do anything with ice cream. And that's a really big thing for people, just a comfort sweet, is ice cream," said Amy Quintero, manager of Sweets N' Eats.

Managers say they decided to try a new area and some new concepts. While the shop has plenty of sweets, it also now serves authentic Mexican food.

Sweets N' Eats is open every day 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
