Inside Pepper's

Pepper's Newsletter April 23, 2019

Pepper's Newsletter April 23, 2019

Good morning!  Another Easter Weekend has come and gone and the weather for it this year was amazing, perfect, in fact, for spending time outdoors looking for hidden eggs that the Easter Bunny left behind! Hopefully, your basket on Easter Sunday was as equally amazing, filled to the brim with loads of chocolate goodies! 

The arrival of warmer weather means that our frozen novelty freezer will soon be back on the floor. We're hoping to have it here by the end of the month and filled with all of the glorious frozen treats that you can imagine. So keep your eyes peeled for it!

Speaking of glorious treats, Rock Coast has added to their already stellar lineup (they offer amazingly good chocolate toffee bark that you can purchase here at Pepper's) by adding three new Dark Chocolate MeltsPeanut Butter, Mint and Orange! Made with 54% ethically and sustainably sourced dark chocolate, these all natural, vegan chocolates contain simple ingredients free of artificial flavours and colours. And the best part is that they're made in Saanichton!

BBQ season is pretty much in full swing (at least in Victoria it is) so make sure to pick up a jar of Hengstenberg Original German Mustard Bavarian Style. It's made from coarsely ground yellow and brown mustard seeds and is seasoned with caramel and spices to give this mustard an exceptional sweet and delicious taste. And in our ad this week we have Schneider's Natural Beef Burgers in a 4 pack for just $9.96! A match made in BBQ heaven!

Sauternes are sweet white wines which can really enhance dishes with fish, shrimp, clams  and lobster as well as many kinds of desserts such as poached pears or sweet sauces. Tosca Sauterne Cooking Wine is, as the description states on the bottle, "A medium weight, white wine that enhances chicken and fish dishes, light sauces, stocks and white sauces."  Cooking wines typically have a high salt content so adjust your recipes accordingly.

Vermicelli is, according to the dictionary, pasta made in long, slender threads. And we have a new one for you to try. X.O.Brown Rice Vermicelli is so easy to make. Just soak in hot water for 3-4 minutes and you're good to fry it up or add it to soups. Or you can add to meat, seafood, meat balls, fish balls or curry. And like all rice types, it's gluten free!

Maybe the kidlets don't like rice vermicelli. You're in luck because we've added new Annie's Homegrown Organic All Stars and Annie's Homegrown Organic Bernie O's, pasta in tomato and cheese sauce, to Aisle 2. Wait, who's Bernie? Oh he's just the rabbit that you see on the label, Annie's pet Dutch rabbit, the "Rabbit of Approval". He "represents all the simplicity, care and goodness" in all of their products. 

It's remarkable what can be made from plants these days. Seriously, they can pretty much mimic any kind of meat or dairy product now. You've got veggie burgers, milks, yogurt, bacon, you name it. Sometimes, though, they just don't taste quite right. But new Noble Jerky Vegan Jerky isn't one of those products. It's like meat jerky but it's made from soy protein marinated and seasoned to taste like the real thing! And we have it in Sweet BBQ and Teriyaki flavours! This comes from another great BC company, Urbani Foods Inc. of Port Moody BC! #benoble

If you're going to chow down on some dried soy protein then you're probably going to want a tasty beverage on hand (no disrespect intended to Noble Jerky. It's just that good jerky deserves a good bevvie.). New Barq's Spiced Cherry Soda is made with cane sugar but isn't too sweet and it has the perfect amount of tart cherry flavour that will get your tastebuds' attention.

Every cat deserves and requires 100% complete and balanced nutrition whether they're a wee little kitten or a big, grownup cat. That's what your pet will get with Purina Friskies Cat Concoctions available at Pepper's in Scrumptious Salmon & Chicken Liver Dinner as well as With Chicken in Creamy Crabby Sauce. Mmmmmm yummy. These are, "curious combinations chosen by cats." Cats from all over the world emailed the people at Purina urging them to create the kinds of wet food that they really want! And apparently they listened! Online customer reviews seem to indicate that cats everywhere appear to LOVE it!

And just in case you happen to get that cat food on your fingers when opening a can, you'll want Dr. Bronner's Pure Castille Bar Soap to wash it off! Available in Peppermint and Lavender. This soap is 100% biodegradable, certified fair trade and made with organic oils! And, interestingly enough it showed up right before Earth Day. These words appear on the soap label: In all we do, let us be generous, fair & loving to all Spaceship Earth and all its inhabitants. For we're all-one or none! All-One!

Please take a minute to scan our attached advertised specials which start today and run until closing on Monday, April 29. And stay tuned to learn about an exciting promotional draw from Arla Foods where one lucky winner will win a NHL jersey!

Until next week, take good care!
