If you weren't hungry before, you definitely will be after this. Award-winning dessert shop BETA5 is opening a new location in Vancouver this Saturday, November 16 and the treats are unbelievable. There are so many cream puffs to choose from that making a decision can seem impossible. In order to make sure you know your options, we compiled a list of the best cream puffs at the new BETA5 store in Vancouver.
BETA5 is a chocolate and pastry shop known as one of North America's top 10 chocolatiers, so you know their treats are good.
The shop's new location is opening on Industrial Avenue this weekend. The shop will be a 16-seat, 900 square foot facility, so you can actually sit down and dig into your treat without having to take it to go.
From sweet to savoury, every one of these cream puffs is worth trying. We suggest going with a friend or two so you can take a few bites of each one and decide on your favourite.
Each cream puff is only $5, so it won't cost you too much to sample a few. BETA5 has given Narcity all the mouthwatering details about the offerings at their new store, so without further delay, here's what's good.
Why You Need It: A classic pairing, this sweet and salty duo is loved by everyone and for good reason. This cream puff does the traditional flavour in the best way possible.
Variations of Chocolate
Why You Need It: This is for all you chocolate lovers. There are several different types of chocolate in this one, making it a dream come true. It’s even topped with some of their signature chocolate shavings so you’ll get the best of both worlds.
Why You Need It: Another classic combination, this duo is perfect for this time of year. The seasonal flavours work so well together making it the perfect snack for the holiday season.
Why You Need It: The subtle earl grey flavour of the cream tastes like you’re drinking a cup of tea in the best way possible. Not your typical chocolate cream puff, but equally as yummy.
Mandarin Hazelnut and Coffee
Why You Need It: The coffee mouse, mandarin curd, and hazelnut ganache is even better than how you imagine. This seasonal flavour is only available until November 22 so get it while you can.
Lychee and Rose
Why You Need It: This one is for the adventurous eaters out there. The lychee mousse is something like you’ve never had before but it works with the rose ganache. Plus, you get a little macaron as a topping so it’s like two desserts in one.
