The GOODS from Beetbox
Vancouver, BC | Popular born-in-Vancouver brands Beetbox and BETA5 have teamed up to launch a limited-edition, plant-based chocolate bar called ‘Eat Your Veggies!’, now available at both locations as well as part of a new Beetbox ‘Pantry Pack’ that includes three of the restaurant’s Beetbox Basics vegan condiments.
Blending 66-per-cent dark chocolate and beet chocolate with crunchy beet, carrot and parsnip chips, the Eat Your Veggies! bar is the sweet-meets-savoury realization of a long-simmering project between Beetbox Chef and Co-Owner Bryan Satterford and Beta5 Co-Owner Adam Chandler. It is the latest edition in BETA5’s line of chef-collaboration bars that debuted earlier this year.
The bar can be ordered on its own or as part of a Beetbox Pantry Pack that includes three of the restaurant’s new Beetbox Basics vegan condiment line — one 8oz Vegan ‘Mayo’, a choice of a 16oz jar of either Sweet & Sour or Spicy Pickles and a package of a dozen ‘Bac-un’ Slices. The Pantry Pack is available for $28 for pickup from Beetbox, with delivery to be added in the coming days.
“Bryan and I have known each other for a long time and always wanted to work together,” says Chandler, who co-owns BETA5 with wife Jess Rosinski. “With Beetbox being a plant-based restaurant, we definitely wanted to create something that was veggie-forward, and we’re thrilled with the result.”
BEETBOX BASICS | Beetbox is helping at-home chefs add effortless finishing touches to their own culinary creations by making a selection of its most popular vegan condiments available in a take-home format with its new grocery line of ‘Beetbox Basics’. The lineup comprises the key ‘secret ingredients’ that have made the West End restaurant’s range of plant-based comfort food fare so delicious and in-demand.
