Sweet is an unincorporated community in Gem County, Idaho, United States. It is located in open countryside approximately 16 miles (26 km) northeast of Emmett, along a county highway 8 miles due north of its intersection with State Highway 52. Founded in 1885 by Ezekiel Sweet, the community initially was a supply location and post office for farmers and ranchers in the nearby Lower Squaw Creek Valley. Sweet grew significantly as a result of the later Thunder Mountain Mines gold strike; by 1900, it supported three saloons, three hotels, several businesses and a newspaper, which lasted until the gold mines petered out. Several subsequent fires destroyed most of the historic downtown. Today, a smaller Sweet is the location of a restaurant and post office.
