Pepper's Newsletter August 27, 2019

Pepper's Newsletter August 27, 2019

Good morning!  Another Tuesday has rolled around and that can mean only one thing: you've survived Monday. That's a good thing. But the weekend is still far away (sigh). That's a bad thing. It's not all bad though because this weekend happens to be a long one! Plus, you get to read another newsletter so there's that...

Before we proceed to the new products, there are a couple of things to update you about. Firstly, Wildfire Bakery had a delay getting their new ovens which is why they still don't have any bread on our store shelves. And the latest we've heard is that it won't arrive until after Labour Day. Secondly, Natrel Lactose Free Milk is currently not available either. We're not sure what the problem is or what the ETA is but rest assured, the moment it becomes available again, it'll be back on the shelf.

Ok, now that you know what we don't have, let's tell you what new items that we do have starting with Millstone Farm & Organics Inc. of North Saanich. We started carrying their re-usable cotton mesh produce bags and woolen dryer balls in July and now we're super excited to offer new Organic Laundry Soap! It's a biodegradable and fragrance free, organic plant based castille soap made from a blend of organic coconut, olive & jojoba oils, organic aloe vera, purified water androsemary & palmarosa oils. And it's free from any dyes, phosphates, sulphates, chemical preservatives foaming boosters detergents and optical brighteners.It's also certified cruelty free, vegan and safe for all skin types! This is also great for the environment because there's no plastic waste generated! All you do is pay a deposit on your first bottle which you can return for a refund. Or if you choose to re-purchase the soap, you won't need to pay the deposit again (unless you don't bring back the empty bottle). And while you're at it, we have very snappy, very durable, 100% organic cotton bags that you can use for shopping or anything that you like. Check it out!

If you're in the market for a way of washing tiny bodies, then Attitude Little Leaves Blueberry Bubble Wash is going to get the job done! This product description, taken from the website, pretty much sums it up: Turn bath time into a blast of foamy bubbles. Enhanced with hypoallergenic and EWG VERIFIED™ ingredients like blueberry leaf extract to cleanse, nourish and protect their delicate skin, our Parent Tested Parent Approved (PTPA) bubble wash acts as a cleansing body wash and a bubble bath. You’ll want to let them soak in the suds as long as they want! If you're wondering what EWG stands for, it's Environmental Working Group. And what do they do? According to Wikipedia: The Environmental Working Group (EWG) is an American activist group that specializes in research and advocacy in the areas of agricultural subsidies, toxic chemicals, drinking water pollutants, and corporate accountability.

As long as we're talking about natural things, you'll be happy to know that we now carry new Danone 100% Natural Source Yogurt! Smooth and delicious, there's no added sugar whatsoever. That means that the sugar present is only naturally occuring. And the fruit is real fruit puree added for flavour. But wait, there's more! The Canadian whole milk used to make this yummy stuff is 100% traceable. And finally, Danone Canada is a founding member of the Breakfast Club of Canada serving more than 220,000 nutritious breakfasts daily in 1,600 schools throughout Canada,since 1994. www.breakfastclubcanada.org Shop smarter and help make a difference.

Another smart choice is Smart Sweets Peach Rings. If you just have to indulge that sweet tooth of yours, this is the way to do it. The entire bag contains only 3 g of sugar, is high in fibre and it's another of the many plant based products taking over! No sugar alcohols, artificial flavours or colours here no sirree! And they're gluten-free, peanut-free and nut free. Kick sugar. Keep candy.

A more traditional sweet snack made with real butter and fresh cream is Werther's Original Caramel Popcorn. It's the classic combination of popcorn and Werther's original caramel. What more is there to say? You know exactly how this is going to taste!

Let's switch gears from sweet to salty. Canada's first sea salt harvestry was established in 2009 right here on Vancouver Island by the Vancouver Island Salt Company. We've talked about them and their products before. But now we have hand harvested, all natural Sea Salt Flakes. With a crystal size of 3-10mm, we have it in original, Flake Sea Salt and also Maple Smoked Sea Salt Flakes and Kelp Sea Salt Flakes. Why use regular salt when you can add so much more to your grilled meats, veggies, salads and desserts?

There's another newsletter in the bag. Thanks for having a look and have a great Labour Day long weekend!
