Inside Pepper's

Pepper's Newsletter June 19, 2018

Pepper's Newsletter June 19, 2018

Good morning!  We do sincerely hope that all you dads out there enjoyed your picture perfect day on Sunday. It was quite possibly the nicest day of the year so far! And we're hoping to receive that same kind of weather on Thursday, July 5 when we host our 9th Annual Local Island Showcase from 10am-2pm. It's a day devoted to showcasing the people that bring you the fantastic, local products that you've come to love. Come out and say hello, put a name and face to the products and have a chat. Sample many of the unique and delicious goodies that we are so very fortunate to be able to purchase day in and day out. And take advantage of lowered prices on the vendors' products when you come inside and shop! Plus, there are prizes and give-aways (and one of them is BIG)! Don't miss out; join us and make the day an even bigger success than last year!

One of life's simple pleasures is cooling off with a refreshing drink on a hot summer day. And a staple beverage of the summer is iced tea. So now that the mercury is rising, you're going to want to make sure to have a bottle of Gold Peak Lemon Iced Tea standing by in the fridge. Remember those commercials where the person takes their ice cold glass and draws it across their sweaty forehead before chugging whatever it was that they were drinking? That could be you! Look for it in the Dairy Aisle.

Also new to Pepper's are these convenient grab and go sized Triple Jim's Premium Apple Cider and Apple Cherry Cider Blend! For over 35 years, Triple Jim's has been providing ciders and juices from fruits grown either in the Fraser Valley or the Okanagan. If you're looking for all natural refreshment (not from concentrate) made from fresh BC fruit then why not give these a try?

Another new beverage to Pepper's is Avalon Dairy Conventional Chocolate Milk in a more affordable 500 ml glass bottle. Here's why this is a great choice as per the company website:

Real. Belgian. Cocoa. Say that slow enough and the Avalon Chocolate Milk Genie just might make an appearance! Avalon’s Chocolate Milk is the real deal, and it’s packed with the excellent nutrients of calcium and vitamin D so you can go ahead and do it, especially if people are looking. There is nothing like pouring Avalon Chocolate Milk straight out of the glass bottle and drinking it ice-cold! (perhaps milk wasn't that bad of a choice for Ron Burgundy after all) Maybe you know a few tired hearts who need mending? Heat up some chocolate milk for their mug. Shake up the lunch bag routine when you add Avalon Chocolate Milk to your regular muffin or cake recipe! 

We've had several requests for real, authentic provolone cheese and as a result, we brought in Italissima Provolone Piccante Cheese. In case you're not too familiar with this Italian staple, here's a few tidbits of information to expand your culinary knowledge:

  • Provolone is known as pasta filata, an Italian term meaning "spun paste" which is essentially a pulled or stretched curd cheese which is then shaped and molded into balls and then left to age for between 6-12 months, typically
  •  is a semi-firm cheese
  •  is derived from the Neapolitan words "prova" and "provola" which mean "globe shaped"
  • good provolone is called provolone piccante, and it's actually quite closely related to mozzarella
  • was the traditional cheese of Southern Italy 
  • authentic Italian Provolone is a grating cheese, full-bodied and buttery with a slight snap. Aged Italian Provolones are much more flavourful than standard issue sandwich provolone. 
  • succulent, sharp, buttery flavour would be the star of an antipasto plate.
  • serve with Italian olives and thin slices of Prosciutto di Parma. Provolone as they eat it in Italy! Grate it over pizzas and pastas. 
  • melts best when shredded first. For a scrumptious treat, try it with some red grapes, pears, figs, tomatoes, roasted red peppers, olives or hearty breads drizzled with olive oil

And for all you sweet treat lovers out there, we now have YumEarth Organic Licorice and Organic Sour Beans, respectively. These delicious organic candies are certified gluten-free, non-GMO, dairy and nut free and contain naturally sourced colours and flavours! The kiddies will love 'em (and so will you)!

Your weekly advertised specials are attached so don't forget to have a look and make sure to take advantage of the savings. Remember, our ad runs from Tuesday to the following Monday.

Have a great week!
