Beak Appetit Went Out of Business

November 14, 2009

According to their website, Beak Appetit has shut down due to economic pressures. Beak Appetit Gourmet Entrees are popular pre-made meals for parrots that are super easy to serve (just add water and boil for a few minutes) and come in a variety of appealing flavors. They are (were) a great way to offer some variety into your birds diet on those days when you just don’t have time to cook for them.

I think a bunch of stores probably have them on sale now because they are clearing the remaining inventory. But even if they aren’t discounted, this is probably your last chance to get your hands on this brand of cooked bird food.

Flavors include:

  • Cream of Tweet is a mix of bananas, dates, rice, raisins, and other grains.
  • Instant Nuts for Alfredo is made up of cous-cous, other grains, nuts, and vegetables in a cheese sauce.
  • Cinnamon Sunrise contains apples, coconut, raisins, cous-cous, and other grains.
  • Instant Calypso Spice is a combination of grains, nuts, fruits, vegetables, and exotic spices.
  • Caribbean Crunch contains grains, peas, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and Caribbean spices.
  • Cheese Teaser combines grains, vegetables, and nuts with an irresistible cheese taste.
  • Apple Carrot Harvest has apples, carrots, vegetables, and grains
  • Veggie Heaven contains carrots, red/green peppers, peas, broccoli, anise seed

There’s also a variety pack that includes the first six flavors of Beak Appetit so you can sample what your little beaks might have an appetite for.

For now, you can still get Beak Appetit at Drs. Foster and Smith. So hurry up and grab up your favorite flavors before they are all gone. Bon appetit!



  1. Thank you for the info!! I just purchased a bunch for my picky Amazon who loves Nuts for Alfredo.

  2. I hate seeing this happen. I liked the company and I like the products. It’s too bad.

  3. Several of the sites that are members of the Avian Advantage Buyers group still have some in stock for those still seeking it.

    I will very much miss this product

  4. Make sure that you check the expiration dates. I checked out the remaining stock at some of the shops local to me and most of the products were out of date by 6 months or more!

  5. I finally found a bird food that you cook up really fast, just like Beak Appetit used to – and my birds really love it. Yeah! They have lots of flavors. My birds especially love CinnaSpice DelightSince Beak Appetit products aren’t being made anymore and whatever is left in store stocks is really getting old, you might want to check out the Bird Street Bistro website at http: //www.birdstreetbistro.com Hope this helps!

  6. I just now found out and my birds are desperate. LOL Any idea where I can find some??

  7. Hi Barbara,

    Beak Appetit is all but gone in the stores now. You may find some around, but is quickly getting past the expiration date if so.

    We’re using Bird Street Bistro now and our birds don’t miss the Beak Appetit at all. They have a $5 shipping special going on for all size orders:


  8. Hey!!! Beak appetit is coming back. I heard that that from a reliable source!

  9. I found out that beak appetite is under new ownership and has reopened doors for business. I just bought 2 buckets of calypso spice for my bird(Ruby). I was told by a friend that I could reach them at gourmetpetsupply.com

  10. Good News! Beak appetite is back. http://www.gourmetpetsupply.com/
