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"         


Thank you all for your patience while I took off to enjoy time with my three grandsons and the birth of my granddaughter.  I am now back at the Nest with business as usual!

Most of you know that I have been slowly discontinuing products that are readily available for some time now. It has been wonderful over the years to see all the foods on our wish list become a reality. With most items (or something similar) now available at local levels my mission has narrowed. I have felt a strong loyalty to my customers, holding on till confident many items are no longer hard to find but available from many sources.   That being said ~ more items have been moved to the close out section.   

Hope you are having a wonderful summer!

Warm weather has arrived here in Delaware!

   I have taken the chocolates off the web site. We can not ship chocolates without them melting. During the warmer months marshmallows, hard candies, gum, and gummies are all still available. If you are not home when the orders arrive you may choose to have your order held at the post office. There is no fee for this and keeps things from melting. Yes even gummies and marshmallows melt if left in the hot sun. 


For those of you that live in or close to Delaware. You will find Squirrel's Nest Chocolates at  these locations ~ Lost and Found Again (middletown), Love is The Sweetest (smyrna), Newark Natural Foods (newark), and The Delaware Store (dover). So no reason to do without your chocolate fix from the "Nest"!


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.
