Inside Pepper's

Pepper's Newsletter August 21, 2018

Good morning!  You know what's great about summer (besides everything!)? One thing is that we get to eat fruits and vegetables that aren't otherwise available locally. Take for instance the cucamelon! This is a fruit that looks like a tiny watermelon but tastes like a tart cucumber. But it's not some hybrid plant. It's been growing naturally in Latin America since forever. The Spanish name is Sandiita which means "little watermelon." Pepper's gets ours locally from Sol Farms in Saanichton. You can eat them raw as is or sliced in a salad, pickled, added to a stir fry or even as a garnish to a martini or cocktail! Despite their small size, this cute fruit packs a BIG nutritional punch: cucamelons are rich in Lycopenes (a heart improving antioxidant), beta carotene (helps to maintain eye health and young skin), minerals, and vitamin K, E, C and fiber.

Here's a different kind of summer flavour to tempt your tastebuds: Bonne Maman Mango-Peach Preserves. The tropical flavour of mangos combined with the sweet, ripe flavour of peaches join together to make a unique and delectable preserve. Add to plain yogurt, spread on toast, top vanilla ice cream or just go for it and have a spoonful right out of the jar!

Most everyone loves a BBQ (yet another summertime bonus). So next time you're having one, make sure you include one or all of these new Lays STReatS of the World Potato Chips. That's right, you can now buy chips that taste like Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Taco and Pizza. They're not quite as over the top as some of the offerings you'd find at a State Fair but as far as potato chip flavours go, they're pretty darn bold!

And don't forget to have a bottle of Suzie's Organic Mayonnaise handy to dress up your hotdogs (some people do it, you know), brats, burgers, salads, fries (Belgian style), sandwiches, dips or whatever else you like to put it on. 

If you're looking for an alternative to wheat flour then it's your lucky day becasue we now stock GoGo Quinoa Organic Quinoa All-Purpose Flour. This is certified organic, certified gluten-free and vegan flour that makes delicious, high-protein bread, pancakes, muffins, cookies and anything else you can think of baking. Quinoa is also relatively high in fibre, contains all of the essential fatty acids and is high in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. So you can ditch the gluten but keep the nutrients, many of which are higher than in traditional grains. Hashtag: winning!

Another brand spanking new item for all of you gluten-free lovers (gluten haters?) is Kikkoman Gluten-Free Panko Style Coating. Finally a product for people who just want to eat some delicious, crunchy, fried shrimp without gluten for crying out loud! Fill your boots, folks. You're welcome.

Do you want to know a secret? Sometimes people sweat. And smell. Ok, that's no secret. We all know this. The problem is that sometimes we do this when we can't afford to: just before a business meeting, a job interview, a date (gack!). I'm talking to all you ladies out there. Because unfortunately, us men don't have something like Secret Freshies On-The-Go Antiperspirant/Deodorant. This stealthy little ball goes with you anywhere in your bag or purse "for those moments when you want a little boost of freshness and protection."  Never get caught in a situation again where someone notices your BO before they notice you!

Oh and just FYI, Gulf Island Coffee will be doing an in-store demo this Saturday, August 25th from 10am-4pm. Their organic, direct trade coffees are "designed to bring you back to the leisurely mornings spent on a boat, the thrill of going into the open water, and the satisfaction of having the perfect drink in-hand to face any new challenge."
