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"         


March 15th ~ Last day for ordering Easter chocolates to be mailed.

March 6th ~ Last day to place Easter Egg orders to be pick up at the Nest.

March 9th ~ Last day to place non Chocolate Easter orders to be mailed.

May 22nd ~ Look for us at Christiana Hilton Hotel where we will be set up for the Delaware State Federation of Women's Clubs Convention. If you are up that way stop by to see us!

May 8th, 9th, and 10th ~ We will once again be the candy vendor in the Childrens Tent at The Wilmington Flower Market. Three full days of fun for such a great cause!

If you live in Delaware and would like to just "pick up" some of our chocolates ~ Squirrel’s Nest chocolates are available at Newark Natural Foods, The Delaware Store in Dover, and Lost and Found Again in Middletown. I will let you know on Face Book when the orders arrive at these stores. There is another store opening this spring that has also requested to carry our chocolates. 

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 

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.
