Welcome to the Squirrel's Nest!

The original all natural candy store.
The store that provides natural alternatives 
for you and your children. 

Voted "Best Candy Shop"         


Spring is on it's merry way here in Delaware!

Which means Easter is close. I have taken off all the chocolates from the web site. We can not ship chocolates with out the worry of them melting.  Miss the boat ordering your Easter chocolates? There is a catagory of non chocolate items that work great to help the Easter Bunny fill baskets. You will find it under Holidays.


Just remember that the holiday items have available dates. The orders ship as soon as I have all the items either in stock or made. Another little reminder ~ the whole order ships at the same time. So if you need something right away you may not want to put it on a holiday order that is not available for shipping until a later date. 


With each year there come changes. Due to family obligations I am no longer able to handle all the different aspects of the store. While I have enjoyed having an actual walk in store front all these years, I am no longer able to have store front hours.  I will be available by appointment, to help plan chocolate favors for your special event or for those of you placing corporate orders.  While you may catch me by chance on the phone, to set up the appointment the best way is to send me an email.   nancy@squirrels-nest.com 

If you live close by and want to "pick up" some of our chocolates ~ Squirrel's Nest Chocolates are available at Newark Natural Foods (you may want call before making the trip to make sure their order is there). The Delaware Store in Dover, Real Food Period, and Lost and Found Again (Middletown). These three have stock on hand. I try and let you know on Face Book when chocolates arrive at these stores.

The mail order section will remain the same. Orders can be placed 24/7 on the web site. If you prefer not to order online, you can send me your order by email. Just remember to add your name, address, and phone number. When filling your order I will call you to get your credit card information. It is VERY important to give plenty of time for me to process your order. I am no longer in the store seven days a week due to responsibilities of elderly family members.  I really do not want to retire but must at this time re-adjust schedules.


As always I hope I have not only made your life a little easier but sweeter as well!
