Inside Pepper's

Pepper's Newsletter May 1, 2018

Pepper's Newsletter May 1, 2018

Good morning!  Happy Tuesday and Happy May! Can you believe that it's May 1st already? Where does the time go? It's a good thing, though, because we're feeling a bit inspired. As American naturalist and writer Edwin Way Teale wrote, "The world's favorite season is the spring. All things seem possible in May."

One thing that's once again possible when you come to Pepper's is being able to purchase from our frozen novelty freezer! Yes, it's up and running and filled to the brim with loads of frozen treats to help cool you off on your way to the beach! But in addition to that, we'll soon have a Jones Soda slush maker in the store! Wondering where its location will be? Just look for the mob of youths (yoots if you're from Jersey).

While we're on the topic of frozen treats, we have a great, new product from Vancouver called Tubify Organic Craft Freezies. As per the company website: Tubify, is a one-of-a-kind freezie. Made with 100% fruit ingredients and a base of coconut milk, Tubify is gluten-free, vegan, all-organic, and naturally sourced. A product liked by adults and kids, of any background and any diet. Tubify has gotten rave reviews and looks to expand beyond Vancouver to the rest of Canada. Our freezies feature ethically-sourced, all-organic and minimally-processed real food. Using ingredients from nature means each small batch will be just a little bit unique!

It's important to stay hydrated, moreso as the weather heats up and especially when you're excercising. As you sweat, your body loses vital electrolytes which need to be replaced. But the problem with traditional sports beverages is that they typically contain a whole lot of sugar. That's why we're happy to now offer Nuun Active Effervescent Tablets as a means to create a light and refreshing sports beverage full of the electrolytes you need and almost none of the sugar that you don't! Just drop a tablet in 500-650 ml of water and as it dissolves it delivers potassium, magnesium, sodium as well as Vitamin C to your water. Plop, plop, fizz, fizz: oh, the perfect perfect sports drink it is!

For those of you opting for all of the sugar and none of the electrolytes, then you'll be tickled pink to know that we have A&W Root Beer in a convenient four bottle pack! Get that "frosty mug taste" straight out of the bottle whenever you like!

Flavoured coffee creamers are fairly popular because they add a little pizzazz to your otherwise mundane cup of joe. And you save a step because it's already sweetened. But why stick to the usual stand-bys of hazelnut and French vanilla especially when you now have the option adding International Delight Cinnabon Flavoured Coffee Creamer to your coffee! That's right! It's the famous taste of Cinnabon cinnamon rolls swirled with the flavour of cream cheese frosting. But before you scoff at the notion of combining these flavours with your coffee just know that there are A LOT of very positive reviews for this product online!  Whodathunk it?

We've talked a lot today about numerous kinds of new beverages available at the store and here's one more for you. Organic Meadow Organic White and Chocolate Milks are here and they're just waiting to be tossed into your family's school/work lunch kits. This is delicious and nutritious milk that requires no refridgeration until opened and lasts for up to 6 months! The ultra high temperature (UHT) pasteurization process, as well as its special tetra packaging, allows it to keep for so long without the use of any preservatives whatsoever! Now you can enjoy milk anytime, anywhere!

And finally, Luke, our Produce Manager, would love for you to know that he has locally grown, ripe and juicy cherry tomatoes available from Glanford Greenhouses as well as tender, organic asparagus and sweet, organic strawberries (limited quantities) from Longview Farms. Make sure you get some before we sell out!

That's all for this week. Be sure to have a look at our great flyer and as far as you visiting our store remember what the great Irish actor Charles Macklin once said, "You are as welcome as the flowers in May."

Have a great week!
