Pepper's Newsletter July 17, 2018

Pepper's Newsletter July 17, 2018

Good morning!  Isn't this just the best weather ever? Seriously, it's been nothing but sunshine and blue sky for days and it's hotter than a Georgia parking lot in August! But that's just fine with us because we know that Pepper's has everything that you need if you're headed down to Gyro beach for the day: sliced watermelon, icy cold beverages, cubed and blocked ice, suncreen, fresh salads, cold cuts, breads of every type, ice cream, frozen novelties, Slush Puppies...the list goes on and on. 

When I was a kid I had the luxury of seeing my grandparents whenever I wanted. Their backyard bordered onto my backyard so it was simply a matter of climbing a few stairs over the fence and stepping into their yard. And two things that gram and gramps always had in the fridge during summer was gingerale and lemonade. Well, now you can enjoy both of those classic flavours combined in Canada Dry Summer Blend Lemonade Flavoured Gingerale. Cold can in hand, relax on the porch and take a moment to savour the flavours (and memories) of summer. And just like grandparents, it's only here for a limited time.

We've been unable to source fresh lemongrass for quite some time but despair no more for we now carry Thomas Fresh Lemongrass in a convenient tray pack. Lemongrass is renowned for it's refreshing aroma and delicate flavour. Now you can add some fragrant flavour to your asian inspired dishes!

As long as we're on the topic of lemongrass, you should know that we now carry Rise Kombucha in Lemongrass as well as Ginger flavours! This refreshing beverage from Montreal, Que. is made with mostly organic ingredients and the SCOBY is actually from Hawaii. What's that now? What's SCOBY? It's simply Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast. Othwerwise known as the mother, it's what turns sweet tea into fizzy kombucha! www.risekombucha.com?

Most everyone knows to eat wholesome foods in order to stay healthy. And foods high in probiotics can help maintain a healthy GI tract. Eat Wholesome Food Co. has all the bases covered with their Organic Sauerkraut. The natural fermentation process results in a kraut high in beneficial probiotics. And it's also a good source of vitamin C! 

What do you know about canola oil? That it's one of the healthiest of all commonly used cooking oils? That it comes from the pressed canola seed? But betcha didn't know that canola is not rapeseed despite looking the same. See, in the 1960s, plant scientists used traditional plant breeding methods to get rid of rapeseed's undesirable qualities thereby creating canola! Why is this important right now? Because Pepper's is pleased to stock North Prairie Gold Extra Virgin Canola Oil, that's why. This is a non-GMO, cold-pressed oil made from Saskatchewan cultivated canola. It's minimally processed to create a premium oil for salads, sauteing and baking. And as luck would have it, the company will be conducting an in-store demo today (Tuesday, July 17th) between 11 am and 3 pm! You can sample this oil and ask any questions that you may have about it.

A perennial favourite pleasure for many of our customers is Walkers Scottish Biscuits. What's not to like? The company personally guarantees that the product is made using only the finest ingredients possible. So you can imagine just how good their new White Chocolate & Raspberry Biscuits are! Belgian white chocolate meets delicious raspberries in these fine biscuits baked in Aberlour, Speyside, in the heart of the Scottish Highlands. If it's somethin' ye huvnae tried yit 'en that's somethin' yoo'll hae tae remedy 'en . Aye lads and lassies!

Rover and Kitty deserve a smack sometimes, right? Oh, that didn't come out right. Let's try that again. Surely Rover and Kitty deserve something special every once in awhile. I mean, why should the humans get all the good stuff? Smack Pet Food for dogs and cats is raw dehydrated food for your favourite feline or canine friend. These foods are high in protein, contain no grains, are gluten-free and are 100% natural. No synthetics. And they're handmade in Winnipeg, Manitoba. So if you love your pet, consider giving them a big bag of Smack. www.smackpetfood.com

That's it for this week. As always, we look forward to seeing you in the aisles and for those unable to make the trip don't forget that we offer delivery Monday to Friday (except holidays) and same day delivery if your order is received by 1 pm. Have a great week!
