Mossy Greens, Matcha and Mint

The first signs of spring are popping up at BETA5, whose March sweets collection is filled with vibrant, earthy tones and flavours, including new green-themed cream puffs, a matcha cruffin and a vegetable-forward chocolate bar.


With pastry chef/chocolatier Adam Chandler wanting to "create a collection that truly interprets those [spring] themes through chocolate and pastry," BETA5’s March trademark chocolates feature three flavours: birch syrup and black pepper, genmaicha and peated whisky. Its new Polygon Bar ($11), named Verdant Force, is midnight green and made with 66 per cent dark chocolate, aerated mint chocolate and cocoa nibs. And, on the pastry side, we can't wait to taste three new feature cream puffs: a dark chocolate and fresh mint; genmaicha with black sesame and mandarin combination; and a touch of the Irish for St. Patrick’s Day with coffee, whisky, and maple.

Next up: look for Chandler's collab bar with Bryan Satterford of Beetbox, available mid-March. The bar focuses on the idea of “eat your veggies," and we can't wait to see how this manifests in chocolate. —Vita Daily
