BETA5 Chocolates‘ has launched their Valentine’s Pop-Up on Cambie and 17th in Vancouver.
Starting Thursday, February 2 the pop-up will be open 7 days/week from 12 pm – 7 pm until Tuesday, February 14. I came here for a sneak peek of their new temporary space and the unique chocolates and treats they are launching for Valentines Day.
What is so awesome about the pop-up is that they work with local artists in their mural, decor and furniture. Love how they always strive for local collaborations.
Strawberry and Jasmine Tea Cream Puff
This beautiful cream puff is topped with a macaron and gold flakes. A fancy cream puff made right. The flavours go well together and isn’t too sweet. I ate the macaron first and then devoured the rest.
Valentines Day Chocolate Collection
The Valentines Day collection has 6 different flavours in each box:
- Sparkling Raspberry
- Turkish Coffee
- Red Velvet
There are 2 sizes for this collection – $15 for 6 pieces or $30 for 12 pieces.
One of the most unique experiences because once you pop this into your mouth, you can hear the ‘pop rocks’ in action.
This snowy white chocolate with a golden heart has a rich chocolate coffee taste. I love coffee, so this chocolate really made my day.
Hibiscus – Pistachio
The combination of hibiscus and pistachio is so interesting. I wouldn’t have thought they would go together, but it works.
Sriracha – Sesame
The Sriracha and sesame is a very interesting combination I tasted the sesame dominating the flavour then the subtle spice from the sriracha started to kick in.
This pink chocolate has 3 tiny hearts on top. The red velvet surprise hides underneath the chocolate coating.
Chai balances out this Valentines Chocolate box with this great combination.
Heart of Gold
The Heart of Gold is shaped in a sphere and it has raspberry jelly, dark chocolate and tonka bean ganache, and crunchy almond-hazelnut praline.
Queen of Hearts
Their Queen of Hearts chocolate bar has freeze-dried raspberries and candied earl grey tea in 35% white chocolate. The raspberries give this bar a beautiful pink colour. It tastes great too.
Ice Cream Social
To celebrate the launch of the pop up shop, they help a one-night only ice cream social. You can get their raspberry and earl grey sundae, which has earl grey ice cream, raspberry sorbet, raspberry compote, vanilla chantilly and macarons.
They have these socials one in a while, so keep an eye out on their social media to find out when they happen.
They also have a few other items to purchase at the pop-up shop. Lots of chocolate to choose from.
