Where can I buy Burgess Excel Apple Snacks?:

  • The moment I opened our bag of Burgess Excel Apple Snacks I was met by a delicious fruity aroma.
  • Compared to other dried apple pet products we have reviewed these Burgess Excel Apple Snacks feel a little less dried.
  • This lusher texture causes the apple slices to retain more tarty apple scent, and glorious fruity colours; this combination seems to be very popular with the Squidgypigs.
  • At 99% Apple and 1% Parsley stalk; I have to be honest and say I didn’t expect to see a lot of parsley but this certainly didn’t distract from their deliciousness and I thought the parsley actually added a really nice compliment to the Apple. The proportions worked.

Apple (and parsley) snacks.

  • As delicious little treats Burgess Apple Snacks are a great option for both hand feeding and hiding in hay to encourage natural foraging behaviour.

Foraging fun.

  • I mixed Burgess Apple Sticks and Gnaw Sticks into a tray of Feeding Hay and the Squidgypigs had a wonderful time digging about for their favourite bits.



  • Juicy, fruity and ever so nice for piggies to eat whether as a handheld treat or as a foraging snack.
