The Squirrel Brand Co. has been kettle-roasting nuts since 1888. It’s a U.S. company, but Squirrel Brand draws inspiration from around the world to create unique, flavorful blends. Just imagine sweet California almonds seasoned with black truffles that were harvested in Northern Italy and ground into a sea salt. Or pecans laced with Squirrel Brand’s take on Herbes de Provence, the classic French blend of dried herbs. And that’s only the beginning.
Brent Meyer is the president and CEO of Squirrel Brand, which has been run by different families over the years but has maintained its focus on inventive nut recipes and sublime flavors—from the sweet to the savory.
Squirrel Brand’s presentation is as memorable as the flavors, which makes these artisanal nuts great for gifting. The nuts are packed in black and gold tins, and the larger quantities come in a beautiful wooden outer box. If you want to boost the flavor quotient at your next shindig, or give a gift that hits the spot, Squirrel Brand’s roasted nuts are classic crowd pleasers.
