As an ancient part of traditional Chinese medicine, edible bird’s nest has been considered a Chinese delicacy for over four hundred years.
Golden Nest, the leading US company which supplies edible bird's nest products, now has its original line available at Costco. Read on to learn about what bird's nest products you can find at Costco, and how you can get exclusive flavors of bird’s nest drink online.
Edible bird's nest products sold at Costco
Golden Nest was the very first company to offer edible bird's nest beverages, and its entire line provides bird’s nest products that are superior in taste, quality, and purity to other brands available in the US. Because of strict USDA regulations, only top quality bird’s nest manufacturers can process and sell their products in the USA.
Golden Nest is the only edible bird's nest product which has earned the privilege of selling its products at Costco, the world's second largest wholesaler.
At Costco, there are two main Golden Nest products. Our Bird's Nest Soup Line and Drink Line with limited distribution throughout the Costco retail store network, because this is still categorized as an ethnic food, they will more likely be available in communities with a higher Asian concentration.
The main difference between the two other than price is the concentration of birds nest per ounce of liquid.
Because of the volume and size that Costco can move, they are able to offer their members the best deal, if you do find them at your local Costco, make sure to pick up a few cases.
As a comparison, we carry the same Premium Original Birds Nest Soup on our website, but each case only comes with 6 bottles and the retail price is $49/box.
This is the same product in the video. It retails for $29.99 for 6 bottles on our website.

Simply Swift™ Is Available at Costco
As you may have noticed, Simply Swift™ is now also available at Costco! This rich and nutrition-abundant bird’s nest is perfect for those who want to make their own bird's nest soup recipes in under 4 minutes instead of consuming pre-made edible bird's nest soup.
With Simply Swift™, you can home cook your own bird's nest soup using your preferred flavors or seasoning. Simply Swift comes in three size variations that you can choose from:
- 2 pieces (5g each piece)
- 6 pieces (5g each piece)
- 12 pieces (5g each piece)
If you’re cooking bird’s nest soup for yourself or a few people, you can go with the 2 or 6 piece pack. If you’re cooking bird’s nest soup for more people in a social gathering, you can go with the largest pack which contains 12 pieces of edible birds’ nests. The 12 piece edible birds’ nests pack is also an exceptional and perfect gift item! Currently, Costco only carries our 2 piece edible birds’ nests pack. If you want to save on your purchase, you can purchase the 6-piece or 12-piece edible birds’ nests set on our online birds’ nests shop!
The production of Simply SwiftTM starts with a diligent and vigorous hand-cleaning process to completely remove natural impurities from the raw swallow nests. Once the raw bird nests are cleaned, the bird nests are further cleansed by undergoing a high-pressure, flash-steaming procedure. This procedure is performed strictly by licensed experts in our facility in California. When the cleansing process is thoroughly complete, the Simply SwiftTM edible birds’ nests are portioned in advance, eliminating time and stress from the preparation process that a customer has to go through if they were to portion birds’ nests themselves prior to cooking the birds’ nests.
To prepare and cook Simply Swift™ ready to eat birds’ nests at home, you can take either of two cooking approaches.
