Summer Heats up with the Return of BETA5 Chocolates’ Summer Ice Cream Socials. With the arrival of summer comes the much anticipated, ‘Ice Cream Social’ season at BETA5. This year there is even more to enjoy, as the weekly Saturday socials are complemented by a series of pop-up ice cream socials hosted by friends of BETA5, in and around the city.
SATURDAY, ICE-CREAM SOCIALS:
Every Saturday until September 30 | 1pm to 5pm | 413 Industrial Ave, Vancouver
Enjoy a new sundae every week, hand-created by the talented BETA5 team. The fine dining background of the team is evident in this season’s slated ice cream sundae line-up: Mimosa, Green Tea Latte, S’more, Melon Fro-yo, Black Sesame & Grape, Apple Pie, Mint Chocolate Chip, Raspberry Earl Grey, Peach Cobbler and more. Their quirky sundae ideas, like Mango Bubble Tea, and masterful execution makes each and every ice cream social a taste expedition.
Not only are all the ice creams and toppings made in-house, each weekly sundae is crafted with special attention to flavour, contrasting textures, and nostalgia. For example, the delectable S’more sundae is made up of a 66% dark chocolate ice cream (created with the custom BETA5-Valrhona chocolate), a ceylon cinnamon ice cream, graham cracker macaron – filled with a burnt cinnamon ganache, and toasted house-made marshmallows. BETA5 sundaes are an out-of-this-world taste experience offering an elevated take on your most deeply held ice cream sundae memory.
WEEKLY INSTAGRAM CONTEST:
BETA5 is bringing back their “weekly repost” Instagram contest.
To enter snap a picture at a weekly ice cream social and post to Instagram by the following Thursday, tagged with #beta5icecreamsocial (or DM direct to BETA5Chocolates). Weekly winners will be announced every Friday and will receive a $25 gift card and the chance to win the end-of-the-season grand prize.
The last ice cream social will be held on September 30th and the flavour of the last sundae will be chosen by the grand prize winner of the summer-long contest. This is fan-driven ice cream at its finest, and a chance for the loyal weekly ice cream followers to get one more taste of one of the season’s top sundaes.
