Inside Pepper's

Pepper's Newsletter August 20, 2019

Pepper's Newsletter August 20, 2019

Good morning!  On this day in 1910, the largest forest fire that the United States has ever had (though not the deadliest) started and burned for two days charring a 3 million acre area (4700 square miles/12,100 square km) of the western USA. That's roughly the size of the state of Connecticut. It was actually the combination of between 1000-3000 wildfires burning throughout the states of Idaho, Montana, and Washington due to hurricane force winds. Today it's known as the Great Fire of 1910, The Big Blow-up, The Big Burn or The Devil's Broom Fire. And as long as we're talking fire, we've got some hot deals in our ad this week so make sure you scroll down to the bottom and have a look when you're done reading the newsletter! Now on to the new items!

If you're looking for an easy way to start a fire of your own then If You Care Firelighters are going to get the job done! Great for lighting charcoal BBQs, fireplaces, woodstoves or campfires, you'll be able to light between 7-9 fires with one package. And because this product contains only two products: FSC (Forest Stewardship Council wood from responsible sources) and non-GMO vegetable oil, that makes it 100% natural and 100% carbon neutral emissions. No paraffins or kerosene is used and that's good because those are petroleum based and petroleum is a fossil fuel. And the world could use a little less burning of that. But please, use responsibly (see opening paragraph).

Liberté has added three new greek yogurts to their extensive line of multipacks. Already offering some of their multipack yogurts in 0%, 2% and 5%, these new flavours of VanillaMango and Raspberry are 3% milk fat with 35% less sugar than their regular greek yogurts. 

Not too long ago, we brought in some new Cookie Barrel cookies made by Waterbridge. They sell so well that decided to add another: Waterbridge Cookie Barrel Shortbread Rings. Perfect to pair with a hot cup of tea, these sweet shortbread swirls will please everyone at your next afternoon get together!

Fudge-In-A-Round is the fun fudge that comes in super cool flavours and it's the one with the little spoon! It was gone from the shelves for awhile but new ownership is ensuring that we have a steady supply of rotating flavours from now on. 

Speaking of super cool, Lays Canada has even more crazy flavours of potato chips for you to try! Now available in Pizza and Cheesy Garlic Bread, these chips are loaded with intense simulated flavour! But you'd better hurry up because these are only around for a limited time!

You may, however, prefer something a little less over the top than those Lays. How about something made with organic yellow, non-GMO corn instead with other ingredients such as millet, quinoa, chia and flax? New tortilla chips from Late July Snacks include SeaSalt MultigrainJalapeno Lime and Lime Tortilla, respectively. All three are vegan, kosher and made with no artificial flavours, colours or preservatives.

If you aren't aware of the current plant-based food craze that is currently happening then you've been living under a rock. It's huge right now. But not everyone wants the meatless products that look and brown like real meat. The good ol' fashioned veggie burger lives on with Morning Star Farms Harvest Veggie Burgers and Morning Star Farms Spicy Black Bean Burgers! You can cook them in the grill, in a pan, baked in the oven or even in the microwave! And they're loaded with nutritious ingredients like carrots, onions, mushrooms, whole grain oats just to name a few. Plus, the package is resealable!

Another popular meatless option is bruschetta. This classic Italian antipasto consists of grilled bread topped with has numerous ingredients such as garlic, olive oil and salt. But there are lots of variations and one of them is Kitchen of Love (Cucina & Amore) Bruschetta Sun-dried Tomatoes. Made with a delicious combination of sun-dried tomatoes, basil, cheese and nuts, you can spread it on grilled bread or use as a dip for vegetables.

Curry dishes are just so amazing, aren't they? If you agree, then you probably already know how good the Daksha's Gourmet Spices Curry Mixes are. What makes them even better is that they're made on the Saanich Peninsula. We have an extensive array of their curry mixes for all of your Indian inspired cooking but there are a few new ones, too! Aloo Gobi, Vindaloo, Spicy Fish and Tandoori round out this amazing line of local curries!

But not everything from Daksha's is savoury! New Daksha's Chai Honey is all natural honey infused with Daksha's Gourmet Chai Spice! Use it as a spread or a sweetener for your favourite tea!

Did you know that micro-greens boast 10-40 times the nutrients than their fully grown brethren? It's a fact. And we mention this because we've added Tim's Nutri-greens Pea Greens to our shelves. These nutrient-dense greens are grown locally in North Saanich and we've been proud to carry Tim's quality, local greens for quite awhile. Instantly boost the healthiness of your salad, sandwich or anything else you can think of with these tiny shoots!
