Make Mom Feel Like a Big Deal with BETA5's Gorgeous Mother's Day Offerings

Bright, beautiful and totally irresistible, BETA5 Chocolates' pays tribute to mom with their salute to spring. April showers give way to BETA5's thoughtfully crafted pastel florals in the Mother's Day Collection that features flavours of Strawberry-Basil, Rhubarb-Oatmeal and Sparkling Mimosa Praline.

As much as mom says she appreciates those handmade gifts, she'd happily trade in that painted rock for an elegant Bowl of Strawberries. This hand-painted chocolate bowl filled with strawberry marshmallow kisses and topped with six chocolate strawberries that are each filled with a strawberry-almond praline.

The BETA5 team also has some great advice on becoming mom's favourite child. Croissants. These irresistible flakey, buttery and flavourful treats will be available in three flavours at BETA5's Industrial Avenue location for a very limited time over Mother's Day weekend. Get in line early to enjoy - Rhubarb Crumble and Classic Butter Croissant, Pain Au Chocolat and Decadent Cinnamon-Walnut Monkey Bread. All are sure to sell out quickly.

Blueberry-Lavender and Carrot Cake cream puffs are May's feature cream puff flavours along with a Honey-Lavendar Polygon Bar. Customer cream puff favourites Salted Caramel, Chocolate, S'More, Raspberry Earl Grey, Strawberry Jasmine, Matcha, Vanilla, Vietnamese Coffee and Mango Bubble Tea will be available at the pop-up and Industrial Ave locations.

Don't miss the return of BETA5's ice cream socials and ice cream sandwiches. The next ice cream social will take place at BETA5's Chocolates' 3345 Cambie Street Pop-Up on Friday, May 6 starting at 7pm.
