Buddy Squirrel combines the best of both worlds when it comes to satisfying your sweet tooth or craving for salt. The company specializes in award-winning confections, boxed chocolates, stylish gift tins, premier nuts from around the world, snack mixes and award-winning gourmet popcorns.
Buddy Squirrel’s history began more than 96 years ago when immigrants founded Quality Candy, a confectionery company in Milwaukee, Wis. In the 1960s, Quality Candy then purchased a nut roasting, gourmet popcorn and snack mix operation called Buddy Squirrel. In 2010 the newly renamed, Buddy Squirrel LLC, began revitalizing bulk sales with new kosher confections, healthy snack mixes and redesigned packaging.
Today, the company continues to evolve within its wholesale division. Buddy Squirrel recently debuted Bull Whips and White Cheddar Cheezzzy® Cheese Corn. It now also offers Buddy Bars, made from the original 1916 Quality Candy recipes. Available both packaged individually and in bulk, the collection of flavors includes Sea Salt Caramel, Butter Almond Toffee, Peanut Butter Caramel, Peanut Butter Meltaway, Mint Meltaway and more. Additionally, Buddy Squirrel is thrilled to introduce Honey Bars, a honey and granola-based alternative to the company’s Buddy Bars. This new collection includes flavors such as Almond & Raisin, Cashew, Coffee, Craisin & Peanut Butter and Raisin & Seeds.
Buddy Squirrel currently owns and operates three retail locations in the metro Milwaukee area. Celebrated products include Butter Almond Toffee, Pecan Tads®, Cheddar Cheezzzy® Cheese Corn and Fairy Food®.
Buddy Squirrel confections are also sold across the country through wholesalers and specialty food and candy stores and can be directly purchased from its website.
The heart of Buddy Squirrel is the company’s mission to delight customers with friendly service and the experience of the world’s finest confections made from premium chocolate, nuts and popcorn.
