Bon Bon Bon and popular vegan pop-up Street Beet team up for chocolate collection

A new collection of gourmet confections from Bon Bon Bon was inspired by the food prepared by popular vegan pop-up Street Beet. 

The Street Beet collection, which is 100 percent vegan, has flavors like chick n waffles, cookie dough, fakin' bacon bourbon, cinna-twistin, caramel apple empanada and chocolate raspberry paczki. 

Street Beet vegan pop-up and chocolate maker Bon Bon Bon have teamed up for a collaboration box set.

The 10-piece collection is available in Bon Bon Bon stores for $35. Only 150 boxes have been produced. 

It can be ordered online, but shipping costs as much as the collection due to having to keep the chocolates cool. There are Bon Bon Bon stores at 11360 Jos Campau in Hamtramck and 719 Griswold in downtown Detroit. 

Street Beet — chefs Nina Paletta and Meghan Shaw — makes vegan versions of fast food favorites. They regularly pack places like PJ's Lager House in Corktown when they pop-up for one-off dinners. They'll serve crunchywraps and nacho fries out of Third Street Saloon, 4626 Third street in Detroit, Saturday starting at 11 a.m. The bar is just outside the footprint of the Dally in the Alley street fair. 

"We love what Meghan and Nina are doing," said Bon Bon Bon creative director Megan DeKok, who said she went to a Street Beet "Taco Hell" pop-up and ordered one of everything. "Based on their bomb food and our chocolate adventurousness we knew this would be a great combo." 

Later this month Street Beet will bring back vegan and gluten-free apple cider and doughnuts at Anthology Coffee, 1948 Division in Detroit, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Sept. 29.
