The GOODS from Beta5
Vancouver, BC | BETA5 marks the impending arrival of Easter with a blast of prism colours. Available now, chocolate lovers can indulge in edible rainbow art in the form of BETA5’s trademark polygon silhouette in chocolate eggs, mini eggs, chocolate bunnies, and chocolate lollipops.
Guests can visit www.beta5chocolates.com to order for delivery within Canada. Dine-in and pick-up service has been suspended for now.
“We had a lot of fun with our Easter collection this year,” says pastry chef/chocolatier Adam Chandler, who co-owns BETA5 with his wife Jess Rosinski. “We wanted to make them colourful but in a distinctive way with a spray paint and splatter effect. Because of this, each egg and bunny will be unique and look slightly different then the next.”
The large rainbow egg ($35 each) features 66 percent dark chocolate cast into a hand-painted polygon egg and filled with 15 peanut butter-filled rainbow mini eggs.
BETA5’s trademark Easter treat, the rainbow mini eggs ($15) are made of a thin shell of 66 percent dark chocolate, filled with a lightly sweetened organic peanut butter filling studded with flaked Vancouver Island sea salt.
Hopping rainbow bunnies ($15 each) are great for those Easter egg hunts, featuring hand-painted polygon bunnies cast in 46 percent milk or 66 percent dark chocolate.
For a quick sweet treat, BETA5 has limited edition milk and dark chocolate lollipops ($3 each or 4 for $10).
