SHELL GAME: Family-owned since 1888, McKinney-based Squirrel Brand specializes in the “ultimate nut”. Enjoyed by G.I.’s, world travelers and everyday folks for well over a century, these bite-sized beauties are step up from the typical snack. Classically simple boxes and tins are filled with treats like Artisan Peppercorn Cashews and Crème Brulée Almonds, any of which would disappear in a flash at upcoming spring and summer parties. …That is, if they make it through the weekend. GET IT: Shop online or find Squirrel Brand at Paper & Chocolate in Inwood Village in Dallas.
