Pepper's Newsletter June 5, 2018

Pepper's Newsletter June 5, 2018

Good morning!  According to Wikipedia, on this date in 1956, Elvis Presley debuted the single  "Hound Dog" on the Milton Berle Show scandalizing the audience with his suggestive hip movements. And you might be shocked as well when you take a look at the attached advertised specials for the week! Scott's put together some amazing deals for you so grab your pen and notepad and get ready to make your shopping list!

Not only that but we have loads of great new items to tell you about today so let's jump right in!

Water, water everywhere...you know the quote from the Rime of the Ancient Mariner. Except today there's bottled water everywhere and so much selection that it's kind of ridiculous. But new to Pepper's is Icefield Water, available in 500ml and 2L sizes. Icefield Water is springwater bottled at Rosewall Creek, BC. It has a low hardness, tastes exceptionally clean and because it's right from the island, you'll feel good knowing that you're buying locally!

And speaking of water, we now offer al wadi Orange Blossom Water. What does one use orange blossom water for, anyway? Apparently, there are many, many uses for it! (who knew?) But instead of listing them all in this newletter, we'll provide a link for you to read up on this extremely versatile product! Just copy and paste into your browser bar.

Now that summer is just around the corner, you're going to want to make sure to apply copious amounts of sunscreen when you head outside. But many people are very cautious when it comes to the ingredients found in many brands of sunscreen. That's where ThinkSport Sunscreen comes in. With a content of 20% zinc oxide as the active ingredient providing broad spectrum sun protection, it doesn't contain PABA, parabens, BPA, phthalates, Oxybenzone, Avobenzone, Dioxane or any other toxic chemicals. It applies and absorbs extremely well without an oily feel. We have a type for everyone: babies, kids and athletes as a cream and also in stick form!

Think you're one smart cookie? You are if you choose to buy Sproutalicious Smart Cookie! These cookies are made in Vancouver from organic sprouted ancient spelt grain (we talked about the benefits of sprouted grains a few weeks ago). Aside from being vegan (and, delicious!) these cookies contain no high fructose corn syrup, refined sugars, cholesterol, trans fats, eggs, dairy or animal products or anything artificial. Just clean, plant based nutrition! Aside from Chocolate Chip, we also carry Oatmeal Raisin and Breakfast cookies! And don't forget to try new Sproutalicious Smart Coconut Caramel Popcorn

Baguette is loved by so many as a go-to staple for lunches, picnics and with dinner. Now you can enjoy the same rustic baguette flavour but in the form of Sabine's Collections Baguette Crisps. As taken from the website: "These double-baked, healthy treats work as a snack or paired with cheese, salsa, bruschetta, paté, hummus, dips, you name it. Great with salads, soups or charcuterie trays - the opportunities for this crunchy, healthy and satisfying baguette snack are endless."

And if you're putting together a charcuterie tray you may want to include Preservation & Co. Hickory Brussels Sprouts!  Anyone who has ever tried bacon and roasted brussels sprouts and loved them will want to try these! Though there is no meat in this recipe, these are zesty, hickory smoked and PICKLED brussels sprouts that you can also toss into a stir fry or even use as a delicious garnish with a Bloody Mary!

We hope you enjoyed this week's edition of the Pepper's Newsletter! We would also like to put on your radar the Local Island Showcase which is our annual celebration of the vendors who provide our store with incredibly yummy artisanal food and beverage products from the island and lower mainland. You get to meet the people who create and bring to you some amazing products (and try them out!). Every year gets better and better and this year we are holding it on Thursday, July 5th. We'll tell you more about it as the date draws nearer so stay tuned!
