The Candy and Nut Tour That's
Making Milwaukee Famous!
This may be the most taste tempting tour you ever take.
Now under one roof, you can see Quality Candy making award-winning chocolates and Buddy Squirrel creating fabulous nuts, snack mixes and gourmet popcorns.
||Buddy Squirrel's state-of-the-art kitchens is a tour not to be missed. You'll be able to see every inch of Buddy Squirrel's process of making the finest confections anywhere. Buddy Squirrel creates all its own centers from scratch, including butter almond toffee, marshmallow, nougats, crèmes, caramels, meltaways, cordials and much more. Then they're drenched in velvety smooth pure Swiss style milk and dark chocolate.
Buddy Squirrel is Wisconsin's largest retail nut, healthy snack mix, and popcorn operation, making cheese, caramel and other gourmet popcorns. The Buddy Squirrel popping and roasting rooms are a sight to be seen by every nut and popcorn fan! We invite you to witness 60,000 square feet of candy making magic at our state-of-the-art kitchen.
