Pepper's Foods Newsletter February 11, 2020

Pepper's Foods Newsletter February 11, 2020

Good morning!  Well, the 92nd Academy Awards were handed out on Sunday and this year was a refreshingly upbeat occasion. Whether you agreed with the winners or not, it was amazing to see history made with the first ever non-English speaking film taking home the Oscar for Best Picture (Parasite) by South Korean director Bong Joon-ho who also won for Best Director. The film also won Best International Feature Film and Best Original Screenplay. Parasite was also the first South Korean film to be nominated for International Feature Film (formerly Foreign Language Film). This year was a great one for quality film-making and now's the perfect time of year to settle in and see what all the hype was about!

Pepper's is getting a lot of hype lately for our new, store-made Spicy Peruvian Sauce! It's made in our Deli Department with fresh serano and jalapeno peppers, cilantro, garlic, lime and other yummy ingredients. It's great in salads, sandwiches, pasta and, well, just about anything! Look for it in the cold foods case across from the first till.

Another spicy item that might interest you is Nando's Medium Peri-Peri Sauce 250ml. They made the bottle bigger because people were using so much of this on their chicken! But it also goes great on meat, fish or vegetables. By the way, peri-peri is cultivated commercially in Zambia, Uganda, Malawi, Zimbabwe and Rwanda. It's a very unique blend of vinegar, onion, lemon, various chilis and spices that will packs some heat but also a tremedous amount of flavour!

If you're looking for something to ease your burning mouth afterwards, Riviera Coconut Milk Plain Kefir is here to save the day! Packed with added probiotics and vitamins A, B12 and D, this vegan kefir contains no sugar and makes the ideal substitute for milk. Use it on cereal, in smoothies or just pour some in a glass and slam it back! 

Laughing Daughters of Salt Spring Island just keeps expanding their already stellar gluten-free product line. Now you can purchase their Honey Oat, Multigrain or Cinnamon Raisin Breads! Local just tastes better and Laughing Daughters proves it once again!

Valentine's Day is this Friday and it's pretty common for people to buy their sweetheart something sweet! If the love of your life likes baked goods (like, really, REALLY likes baked goods) then this giant Heart-Shaped Cookie from Lone Tree Bakery will get you back into the good books. Look at the size of this locally-made thing! Good lord! Maybe you'll even get a bite...

Or perhaps sopmething more succinct is your style. If that's the case then Cakes Etc. (yet another local bakery) has options for you in the form of Sweet Solitaires! You could go for some gluten-friendly Chocolate Symphony Solitaires. Or perhaps some White Chocolate Raspberry Solitaires is more to your liking. Oh, oh, wait! This one is a no-brainer: Chocolate Volcano Solitaires! How about some of each? Your sweetheart will love you even more for it!

Which brings us to our next item...black licorice. You either love it or you hate it. If you love it, read on. Because we now carry Tasty Treat Gourmet Oat Licorice! That's right, we said oat! This is so, so soft and unbelievably good licorice. And it's vegan! But beware: because they can't guarantee that this is totally wheat-free, they can't call it gluten-free. 

And finally, we have new Edward & Sons Organic Baked Brown Rice Snaps in Plain, Black Sesame and Vegetable varieties. These whole grain snacks are exceptionally crisp and are certified organic, certified gluten-free and certified kosher. We say they're certifiably delicious!

Thanks for taking the time to read our newsletter and, as always, we wish you to take good care until next week!
