When partners Adam Chandler and Jessica Rosinski chose an off-the-beaten-track location to open BETA5 Chocolates in October 2011, their decision was partly practical. They knew a new endeavour like this could have them working all hours, so a space near where they lived made sense. The fact that the storefront wasn’t a traditional retail space also meant they could keep costs low.

In addition to the practical considerations, Adam and Jessica felt felt there was a creative appeal in setting up in an unexpected location; a sort of "mystique" so to speak. They believed visitors would delight in hunting down the address to discover a hidden treasure.

The business partners applied a similar two-part strategy in developing their award-winning chocolates, cream puffs, ice cream sandwiches and other coveted treats. Adam, who serves as BETA5's pastry chef and chocolatier, explains: “I really connect with pastry from a scientific perspective in terms of the precision of what we do, but I really like the creative freedom that both chocolate and pastry provide.”

Science is also reflected in their name; the form-5 beta crystal is the most stable form of cocoa butter crystallization. The creativity component is on clear display in their seriously slick and irresistible marketing, which is spearheaded by Jessica.

    Outrageously good ice cream sundaes in Vancouver

    Outrageously good ice cream sundaes in Vancouver

    Science, art and taste come together in the confections at Beta5 Chocolates. You know you’re in for something special when you order a sundae from this award-winning chocolatier. The signature chocolate sundae features two scoops of ice cream topped with a variety of chocolate forms, including chocolate aerated rocks; there’s a bit of a space-y feel to it, which is fitting since the flavour will put you over the moon. Remember to act quick; Beta5’s sundaes are only available on Saturdays during the summer months.

    Beta5 Chocolates might be tucked away in Strathcona but it’s certainly not a secret. Best known for their scrumptious cream puffs, Beta5 Chocolates has become a go-to location in the city to satisfy your sweet tooth. The mouth-watering cream puffs are not only tasty, but each beautiful tiny tower is also extremely Instagram-worthy. Visit in time for Easter to pick up limited-edition treats like peanut butter quail eggs and dark chocolate praline eggs. An oversized bunny sculpture made with layers of white, blond, milk and dark chocolate would make a great centrepiece for your Easter dinner table.
