Pepper's Foods Newsletter January 21, 2020

Pepper's Foods Newsletter January 21, 2020

Good morning!  So you thought we had it bad here in Victoria for a few days last week with all that snow, huh? How about the record-setting dump that the island on the other side of the country received? Unreal! They called in the troops to help out and, as of this writing, the St. John's International Airport was still closed! Most schools, businesses and shops are all shut down, in fact. It's a good thing that it didn't happen here, though, because you can only scrape so much snow and ice off your windshield with a credit card...

In the event of a storm, it's vital to make sure you have provisions on-hand, especially ones that enhance your libation. That's where Esquimalt's Rootside Provisions comes in! In addition to the already extensive line of mixes of theirs that Pepper's already carries, we've added new Rootside Provisions Rosehip Lemonade Mix! Made with organic lemons, Bulgarian rosehips, and hibiscus flowers, this makes a great cocktail sour! And check out that label! There's a lot going on there, that's for sure!

Most of the items listed here today are local and another one that's new is Laughing Daughters Island Crisps! These hand-made gourmet crackers are another delicious addition to their all gluten-free line of sweet and savoury items that we stock. And they're made on Salt Spring Island.

Victoria's Parachute Ice Cream opened shop at 2626 Bridge Street not too long ago and is likely one of Victoria's best kept secrets for traditional and vegan ice cream! So when they decided to expand into grocery retail, we jumped (Get it? Parachute?) at the opportunity to sell it! We have Brown Sugar Vanilla, Brown Butter Brownie, Dark Chocolate Peppermint, London FogChocolate Truffle and Lemon Cream, made with fresh squeezed and zested lemons that will have you yearning for warm summer days. And as far as vegan options, there's Vegan Dark Chocolate which really requires no further description except that it's insanely rich and decadent. And there's also one of the shop's most popular ice creams: Vegan Coconut Mango, a creamy and refreshingly fruity frozen flavour! By the way, the glass jars that contain these frozen treats DO NOT have a deposit which means that you can either re-use or recycle them but please don't return them to the store. Thank you.

Duck eggs are becoming so popular with our customers that we've added another local supplier's eggs to our Dairy Department! Maple Bay Farm is located just east of Duncan where they've been established since 1948. Free range, GMO, corn and soy free, Maple Bay Duck Eggs are available by the dozen and if you haven't yet discovered the taste of these eggs from our webbed-footed friends, now's the time to check it out!

Many of you know that the easiest way to get that homemade tasting pasta sauce is to simply purchase Classico. Now, you can get that same homemade taste with Classico Organic Pasta Sauces! Made with ripe, organic tomatoes, Italian herbs and spices and other savoury ingredients these pasta sauces taste amazing! Available in Marinara, Tomato Garlic and Sweet Tomato Basil. Buon appetito!

If you love seafood then you'll love new Aquastar Smart SeaFood Crunchy Breaded Scallops! These responsibly sourced, sweet and delicate scallops are surrounded in a crunchy, golden panko breading that'll make the perfect appie or main course! Pepper's also carries Aquastar Salt & Pepper Calamari as well as Aquastar Shrimp & Scallops. Look for all three in our frozen food aisle!

Donuts and milk make a great flavour combo, right? If you've ever dreamed of filling a big bowl with Tim Horton's Timbits and pouring delicious and creamy milk over it but thought better of it bcause your family would think you were nutters, well, rejoice! For behold, now you can do it (sort of) with new Post Tim Horton's Timbits Cereal! Available in Birthday Cake and Glazed Chocolate, you'll actually feel like you're eating breakfast inside your favourite neighbourhood Timmies if you close your eyes and concentrate really hard. Note: cereal pieces do NOT actually have tiny little legs protruding from them.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read our newsletter. We hope you enjoyed it and we hope you'll find something to your liking in our attached advertised specials. Until next week, take good care!
