The Squirrel brand origins date back to 1890 when it was started as the Austin T. Merrill Company in Massachusetts. From salting to roasting peanuts to chewy candy favorites, Squirrel Nut Company developed a loyal and enthusiastic customer base. It supplied candy and roasted nuts to the armed forces. The flagship product "Squirrel Nut Zippers"--vanilla, caramel and nut taffy--had an interesting beginning. It was named after an illegal drink during Prohibition. During the 1990's, a retro swing band named themselves "Squirrel Nut Zippers," and gave out the candy during their performances.
