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"         


As the lazy days of summer come to an end school is starting for many of you. If you find the teachers are handing out sweet treats for rewards we maybe able to help. We offer several goodie bags just for this reason. Two of these bags are featured at the bottom of this page. Over the years it has proven to be helpful for teachers to have a special stash of all natural goodies tucked away in an air tight container for your child to avoid melt downs.

I will post all the chocolates for you to see around the end of Sept. Please note they will not be available to ship until mid Oct. when the weather is turning cooler.

The Squirrel's Nest will have a team again this year in the Rehoboth Beach Walk. To help with the fund raising efforts I will be donating all the money from the sale of the items listed in the Alzheimer's Fund Raiser section. Since there are only two purple items in the store I added a few purple baby items. Babies to me are a sign that life goes on no matter what we are going through.

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, The Delaware Store in Dover, Lost and Found Again (Middletown), and Real Foods Period also in Middletown. I try and let you know on Face Book when the 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!



Since 1980 The Squirrel's Nest has been providing families with natural sweets. My mission is to continue offering great tasting-fun foods that do not contain synthetic ingredients.
