About Skeeter Nut Free
Skeeter Nut Free (also known as “Skeeter”) based in Westport, CT was founded in 2012 by two dads of nut-allergic kids. Tired of scrutinizing ingredient lists and frustrated that the snack food industry was responding to this widespread issue with warning labels and disclaimers rather than new products, they decided to do something about it. The result? A trusted brand that makes it a “no brainer” for parents, kids and groups to choose nut-free snacks that EVERYONE loves. Skeeter is in retailers and schools nationwide and its products are also available for purchase via Amazon.com. Wherever kids go, Skeeter the squirrel is right there too. With taste like this, the question is “why wouldn’t you be nut-free?”
