Pepper's Newsletter June 20, 2017 Peppers Foods Tue, 20 Jun 2017 08:31:00 GMT <p>Good morning!</p><p>We hope all the dad&#39;s out there had a terrific Father&#39;s Day despite the cloud and drizzle. Can you believe that another Tuesday is here already? That means it&#39;s the start of our new ad! &nbsp;And because it&#39;s sockeye salmon season&nbsp;our meat department has&nbsp;<em><strong>FRESH sockeye salmon fillets on special this week for only $4.46 per 100 grams</strong></em>. So fire up the grill or pan and choose some tasty fillets for a delicious and healthy dinner!&nbsp;Here are a few facts about this delicious fish:</p><ul> <li>&nbsp;Juveniles&nbsp;remain in&nbsp;freshwater&nbsp;until they are ready to&nbsp;migrate&nbsp;to the&nbsp;ocean, over distances of up to 1,600&nbsp;km (990&nbsp;mi)!</li> <li>The name &quot;sockeye&quot; is an anglicization of&nbsp;suk-kegh, its name in&nbsp;Halkomelem, the language of the&nbsp;indigenous people&nbsp;along the lower reaches of the&nbsp;Fraser River&nbsp;(one of&nbsp;British Columbia&#39;s many native&nbsp;Coast Salish languages).&nbsp;Suk-kegh&nbsp;means &quot;red fish&quot;.</li> <li>The rich colour and oil content of sockeye may be attributed to their diet which includes a high percentage of shrimp and other crustaceans.</li></ul><p>A great compliment to your salmon could be&nbsp;<em><strong>Field Gold Dipping Sauces</strong></em>.&nbsp;These are mustard based sauces and the<em><strong>&nbsp;Honey Lime Ginger Sauce</strong></em>&nbsp;is excellent for&nbsp;dipping pretzels, crackers, veggies or bite sized chicken or&nbsp;other meat or sausages. The<em><strong>&nbsp;Chipotle Red Pepper Sauce&nbsp;</strong></em>combines rich, smoky chipotle pepper&nbsp;with sweet red pepper and citrus and makes this ideal for grilling or spicing up chicken, fish or shellfish!&nbsp;Be the first of your friends to use this in your next party menu.&nbsp;</p><p>And if you happen to have any leftovers from your dinner, make sure you pack it in one of our newly re-designed insulated lunch kits. Now with a place to write your name on the top, we&#39;ve exchanged the all-black motif for one with our logo. Ask any of our cashiers for one when you&#39;re at the checkout!</p><p>Finally, our line of&nbsp;<em><strong>Newman&#39;s Own</strong></em>&nbsp;products continues to expand with the addition of<em><strong>&nbsp;Salted Pretzel Sticks</strong></em>&nbsp;and&nbsp;<em><strong>Family Recipe Cookies</strong></em>.

Taking place <em><strong>on&nbsp;Thursday, July 6th from 10am-2pm&nbsp;right here at the store</strong></em>, it&#39;s an opportunity for you to come and meet many of the local vendors that supply us with a plethora of delicious and unique products!

There will be give-aways, prizes and Daisy the Island Farms mascot will be on hand for the kids! Don&#39;t miss this super popular annual event that had&nbsp;over 700 people attend last year and&nbsp;even more are expected this year!&nbsp;</p><p>Chances are you have a box of baking soda in the fridge to keep things fresh. Maybe it&#39;s been in there a little longer than the recommended one month. Or maybe it&#39;s been a lot longer than that. Either way, if you&#39;re in need of a fresh box, why not try something new that lasts 6X longer?&nbsp;<em><strong>Ecotech by Aircoal has a brand new fridge deodorizer&nbsp;that&#39;s made from coconut shell charcoal</strong></em>!</p><p><em><strong>FridgePLUS</strong></em>&nbsp;is nature&#39;s other fridge deodorizer.&nbsp;You&#39;ll love that it really works for 6 whole months like 6 boxes of baking soda!&nbsp;PLUS, FridgePLUS will help keep your veggies longer!</p><p>Toss 1 of the 2 pouches into your crisper drawer to capture the natural ethylene off-gassing of your veggies that lead them to look a little tired quicker.&nbsp;Now they&#39;ll stay crisper longer!</p><p>The other pouch stays in the flow through box to sit on your upper shelf looking much like the box you&#39;re used to.&nbsp;After 6 months, cut open each pouch and release the naturally derived coconut shell charcoals into your indoor composting bin or directly into any soil. It&#39;s called Biochar and it&#39;s a great soil enhancer!</p><p>Kefir (pronounced ke-FEER or ka-FEER) is an intensely probiotic food and it&#39;s gaining popularity in a huge way just as kombucha has of late. There is a lot that can be written about the known health benefits of kefir and also how it differs from yogurt (we&#39;ll leave it up to you to do your own research but just know that there is a BIG difference!). Pepper&#39;s is happy to offer numerous choices for those who wish to purchase it, but now we offer another option: you can <em><strong>make your own kefir using&nbsp;Yogourmet Kefir Starter</strong></em>! You don&#39;t need any special appliances like when you make yogurt. All you need is a pot, some milk, a thermometer&nbsp;and a stove. And chances are you have most of that already. Make&nbsp;6 litres of your own kefir with this product that contains four types of active bacterial culture!</p><p>That&#39;s all for now. We&#39;d like to wish all the dads out there a very Happy Father&#39;s Day when it rolls around on Sunday the 18th! Take care until next week!</p><p>Pepper&#39;s Foods</p> Pepper's Newsletter June 6, 2017 Peppers Foods Tue, 06 Jun 2017 08:31:00 GMT <p>Good morning!&nbsp;</p><p>Sunny days have finally arrived with June and what better way to celebrate than with a bowl or cone of&nbsp;<em><strong>Island Farms Lactose Free Ice Cream</strong></em>? It&#39;s&nbsp;<em><strong>ad priced at $2.96</strong></em>&nbsp;(473ml) this week. Whether you&#39;re lactose intolerant or not, it makes no difference. This is delicious, rich and creamy ice cream so if you&#39;ve been thinking of giving it a try, wait no longer! And don&#39;t wait to load up on the dozens of other great ad items from every department.</p><p>Can happiness be bottled? That would be wonderful, wouldn&#39;t it? What about boxed?&nbsp;<em><strong>Happy Water&nbsp;is now offered in a 5L box</strong></em>&nbsp;with a built in convenient spout. This is&nbsp;naturally&nbsp;alkaline lithia water that&#39;s&nbsp;sourced, bottled and boxed in Canada. The packaging is 100% recylable and the box reduces the amount of plastic required to hold the equivalent volume by 85%. And it makes an ideal earthquake kit item. Get ready to get happy!</p><p>With today&#39;s hectic lifestyles, sometimes you just don&#39;t have time to make a delicious and nutritious dinner. And often, convenience meals are frozen and contain loads of ingredients/flavours that would make you want to skip dinner altogether. Well now you can have the convenience of a pre-made meal but with the nutrition you need and the taste you love!&nbsp;<em><strong>Island Fare Meals</strong></em>&nbsp;are based out of Saanichton and offers a variety of culinary creations for the most discriminating diner, and with ingredients that are all&nbsp;locally farm sourced, you can&#39;t go wrong. And they&#39;re all gluten free!</p><p>Finally, Pepper&#39;s has added&nbsp;<em><strong>John Greek Balsamic Vinegar&nbsp;</strong></em>to our shelves.&nbsp;John Greek follows the traditional Greek production method of the balsamico. It all&nbsp;starts with the selection of the ingredients of grape must and white wine vinegar. Choosing the best grape must from a single grape variety and matching it to the right white wine vinegar is the secret that makes this vinegar the most wanted and noticeably different than others. John Greek also offers a selection of kalamata and green pitted olives as well as superior conventional and organic olive oils. Let us know if you would like to see more of these great John Greek products in the store!</p><p>As Bobby Darin used to sing, &quot;That&#39;s all there is. There isn&#39;t anymore.&quot; At least not until next week. And as always, we look forward to seeing you in the aisles and to our delivery customers, to your emails and phone calls.&nbsp;</p><p>Have a great week!</p><p>Pepper&#39;s Foods</p> Pepper's Newsletter May 30, 2017 Peppers Foods Tue, 30 May 2017 08:31:00 GMT <p>Good &nbsp;morning!</p><p>As usual, our ad is attached for you to browse with loads of great deals&nbsp;from every department.

Now that the sun has finally showed up, don&#39;t forget to sign the back of your receipt, along with your phone&nbsp;number, and place in the draw box at the store entrance for your chance to win one of two sit-down&nbsp;kayaks! Draw date is June 20th so don&#39;t miss your chance to win some sweet, summer fun!</p><p>You know what makes summer that&nbsp;much more fun? Ice cream! And&nbsp;<em><strong>Island Farms</strong></em>&nbsp;has three&nbsp;<em><strong>new flavours: Maple Raspberry Doughnut, Strawberry White Chocolate and Pirate&#39;s Bounty</strong></em>&nbsp;(licorice and butter toffee). You can find all three in Aisle 5.</p><p>Everyone knows that ice cream pairs so wonderfully with cake.&nbsp;But who wants to bother with all the ingredients required to bake one, especially if you live alone? Leave it to&nbsp;<em><strong>Dr. Oetker</strong></em>&nbsp;to come up with&nbsp;<em><strong>Mug Cake</strong></em>! Simply combine the pouch with some milk in a mug, stir and microwave for a minute. Voila! Instant cake! It doesn&#39;t get any easier than that!</p><p>Another sweet treat new to the store is&nbsp;<em><strong>Road Crew Crunch</strong></em>. It&#39;s the perfect blend of sweet and salty &nbsp;natural and non-GMO&nbsp;ingredients drenched in fair trade chocolate. And it&#39;s gluten free!</p><p>That&#39;s all we have to tell you about for now! Until next week, take care and have a great week!</p><p>Pepper&#39;s Foods</p> Pepper's Newsletter May 23, 2017 Peppers Foods Tue, 23 May 2017 08:31:00 GMT <p>Good morning!</p><p>We hope that you had&nbsp;in incredibly fun, relaxing, safe and memorable long weekend! Mother Nature finally cooperated with us (at least here in Victoria) and brought out the sunshine and warmth and boy did it feel good. Hopefully you had a chance to escape to a local lake or beach to soak up some rays and play in the water.</p><p>Speaking of water, have you ever tried water buffalo yogurt? Pepper&#39;s has been carrying&nbsp;<strong>McClintocks Farm Buffalo Yogurt</strong>&nbsp;for quite some time and it has become a very popular seller and a favourite of many of our shoppers. And this week, you&#39;ll find it&nbsp;<strong>ad-priced at $4.96</strong>&nbsp;for a 500g container.&nbsp;So why is this grass fed, award winning yogurt from Courtney, B.C.&nbsp;so coveted?&nbsp;</p><p>It&#39;s made in a traditional, small batch kettle using 100% grass fed water buffalo milk and culture.&nbsp;Buffalo milk is very different from cow&rsquo;s milk as it is naturally homogenized, higher in calcium and protein and lower in cholesterol. &nbsp;The fat molecules are much smaller making it easier to digest.&nbsp;The protein is different as well making it suitable for many people who have intolerances to traditional cow&rsquo;s milk yogurt. The yogurt is naturally thick without any thickeners, cream or skim milk powder added and has a mild, smooth, great taste.</p><p>Pepper&#39;s is BIG on local products and currently our Produce Department has all kinds of <strong>tomatoes from</strong>&nbsp;<strong>Glanford Greenhouses</strong>. Tomatoes on the vine, romas, beefsteaks and cherry tomatoes in a clamshell package are all available! We also have l<strong>ocal, conventional asparagus from</strong>&nbsp;<strong>Sterling Farms</strong>. And&nbsp;you can also find <strong>local, organic snap peas from&nbsp;Longview Farms</strong>&nbsp;of Central Saanich. These are just some of the delicious, local items that you can find in every department at Pepper&#39;s!</p><p><strong>New this week at Pepper&#39;s is&nbsp;Mediterranean Gourmet Dolmadaki</strong>. This Greek specialty of selected grape leaves stuffed with the finest rice is not only simple but it&#39;s also very tasty.&nbsp;</p><p>It used to be that the only way you could get a burger that tasted like a Big Mac was to go to&nbsp;<strong>McDonalds</strong>. Well, now you can recreate that favourite flavour by purchasing not only their&nbsp;<strong>Big Mac&nbsp;sauce</strong>, but also the&nbsp;<strong>Filet-O-Fish&nbsp;and&nbsp;McChicken sauces</strong>&nbsp;right here at Pepper&#39;s! Why order take-out when you can make your very own Big Mac right in your own kitchen. Or at least a reasonable facsimile of one.</p><p>Type 1 diabedes (T1D) is a serious health concern for millions of people and can be a life-threatening disease.&nbsp;For more than 40 years the Junior Diabedes Reasearch Foundation has been the leader in the search for an end to T1D but they understand that the word &quot;junior&quot; is no longer descriptive of the disease or those burdened with it. Many adults suffer from this disease. For that reason, the organization is now recognized as simply JDRF.&nbsp;If you would like to make a donation&nbsp;in any amount (minimum $2.00) towards finding a cure for T1D, simply tell any of our cashiers and a paper sneaker representative of the <strong>Telus Walk for a Cure</strong> (June 11, 2017 for Greater Victoria) will be posted in the store. Let&#39;s see how many sneakers we can hang up!</p><p>That&#39;s all for now. We hope to see you in the aisles very soon. Have a great week!</p><p>Pepper&#39;s Foods</p> Pepper's Newsletter May 16, 2017 Peppers Foods Tue, 16 May 2017 08:31:00 GMT <p>Good morning!</p><p>Here&#39;s hoping all the mothers out there had a terrific weekend and an even better day on Sunday.

Super easy for when you&#39;re camping, too! Oh, and did we mention it&#39;s produced in Vancouver?</p><p>Everything&#39;s better with ice cream! That&#39;s why we&#39;ve added&nbsp;<strong>Betterwith Ice Cream</strong>&nbsp;to our shelves! But not just because it&#39;s produced locally in Vancouver or because it tastes incredible. This ice cream is different than most because Betterwith uses <strong>traceable cream</strong> and 100% real ingredients. They know how the cows at one specific dairy farm are treated (it&#39;s whwere all their cream comes from) and exactly where their local strawberries and other ingredients are sourced. Nothing artificial is ever added. So make your life better with Betterwith Ice Cream!</p><p>That&#39;s all for now.

We love to support local. Here&#39;s a description of the farm and conditions that the hens live in:&nbsp;</p><p><em>Our egg chickens are provided with a spacious, indoor living environment with freedom to move and access to constant fresh clean water and only certified organic grain. They also are provided with access to the outside (from sunrise to sunset) to range freely and have access to green grass, the ability to scratch and search for food such as bugs and worms, to have areas for sun/dirt bathing and loafing. We often supplement their diet with fresh vegetables and greens from our certified organic garden. All the above makes our chickens as happy and healthy as possible. No pesticides, herbicides or poisons of any kind are used on this farm.</em></p><p><em>Our eggs are collected 4 times daily from rear roll out nests to ensure cleanliness and freshness of all eggs. When our egg laying chickens no longer lay eggs, they are kept as retirees and remain part of the flock.</em></p><p><em>Our poultry are housed in a spacious state of the art poultry barn with ample light, roosts, clean bedding, access to continuous fresh water and feed, and out of door areas. This poultry barn has been designed and meets all certified requirements as identified by national, provincial and local organic certifying bodies.</em></p><p><em>Our eggs are certified organic, graded in a CFIA approved and provincial licensed egg grading facility.

These oysters are naturally smoked (no liquid flavour enhancers) and packaged in a retort pouch. This is significant because the cooking time is much less than if the oysters were sold in cans, thereby preventing them from being overcooked. Plus, there is no chance of any &quot;tinny&quot; flavour that can occur in foods sold in a can.</p><p><strong>Neal Brothers Organic Salsa</strong>&nbsp;has arrived! This fresh and delicious salsa contains no sugar or anything artificial. Here&#39;s the list of ingredients for the medium salsa:</p><p>&nbsp;Organic diced tomatoes, water, organic onions, organic cider vinegar, organic tomato paste, organic green bell peppers, organic jalapeno peppers, sea salt, organic spice, organic cilantro.&nbsp;</p><p>That&#39;s it! No junk in there. So grab a bag of your favourite tortilla chips and give this lively and tasty salsa a try!</p><p>Phillips is a successful brewery right here in Victoria and a few years ago, they entered the soft drink market by releasing&nbsp;yummy rootbeer and gingerale. They followed with a lively&nbsp;orange soda and now, finally, they have added a cola!&nbsp;<strong>Phillips Speed King Craft Cola</strong>&nbsp;is a craft brewed natural soda containing natural cane sugar and kola nut. Cola drinkers won&#39;t drink one that&#39;s generic and blah. And this cola is neither! Give it a try and support local while you&#39;re at it!</p><p>Last but not least is&nbsp;<strong>Laiki Rice Crackers</strong>. Three ingredients comprise this tasty snack:&nbsp;&nbsp;rice, oil and salt.&nbsp;Taken from their website:&nbsp;</p><p><em>That&#39;s it. We believe food should be both simple and&nbsp;satisfying. Laiki&reg; Rice Crackers&nbsp;are made with red and black rice which contain more phytonutrients,&nbsp;antioxidants and,&nbsp;most importantly - flavor - than white or brown rice.</em></p><p><em>We only use red and black rice from farmers in Thailand where we are sure we&#39;re getting the best, most flavorful&nbsp;wholegrain rice possible. We also sustainably-source palm fruit oil from Thailand where there are no orangutans or orangutan habitats to be harmed. Finally, we use just enough naturally harvested sea salt to bring out the subtle flavors of the red and black rices.</em></p><p><em>The best part?&nbsp;With only rice, oil, salt &nbsp;and&nbsp;nothing else - you can snack guilt-free with no labels to read and&nbsp;no ingredients to worry about. Just 100% wholegrain goodness!</em></p><p>That&#39;s all for now. Until next week, take care!</p><p>Pepper&#39;s Foods</p> Pepper's Newsletter March 28, 2017 Peppers Foods Tue, 28 Mar 2017 08:31:00 GMT <p>Good morning!</p><p>Welcome to another Pepper&#39;s Foods weekly update where we provide info for new products, store news, promotions and contests,&nbsp;neighbourhood activities/events and anything else that we think you should be aware of!</p><p>At Pepper&#39;s, we strive to offer our customers the latest products and we buy locally whenever we can.

When beef enzymes are at work, some of the protein and fat are broken down into amino acids, fatty acids and sugars, all of which enhance the flavour and tenderness of the meat.
