Pepper's Newsletter December 11, 2018

Pepper's Newsletter December 11, 2018

Good morning!  We're getting right down to the wire as Christmas looms large and this will be the second last newsletter before the big day arrives! Next week we'll include our holiday hours for the week of Christmas and the week after so keep an eye out for that. And as always, there are some new goodies on the shelves to let you know about. Shall we?

A few weeks ago we informed you of a new, vegan line of cheeses and butter from California called Miyoko's. As seems to be the trend now with non-dairy products, the response was tremendous. It's certainly a growing line so we added two more items from Miyoko's line-up. Miyoko's Classic Vegan Mozz is a fresh, Italian-style, cultured, organic vegan mozzarella that melts, bubbles, browns and slices just like real mozzarella! Excellent hot or cold, you can use it on pizza (obviously) or cold on a sandwich or in a caprese salad. As well, we've added Miyoko's Smoked Farmhouse Vegan Cheese. The website describes it as: a semi-hard wheel with rich, smoky and sharp tones that linger on your tongue. Best served at room temperature with crackers, warm in sandwiches, or added to sauces. Take your next get together to the next level with any of the Miyoko's products. Everyone, not just vegans, will enjoy them!

For those of you who prefer your cheese made from cow's milk instead of from cashews, our new holiday Paradise Island Variety Pack Cheese will get you in the holiday spirit! You get four kinds of delicious, natural cheese that will make shopping for your holiday get-togethers super easy! Actually, it'll make your holiday gift shopping super, easy, too! Paradise Island has been making cheese for over 40 years so we're thinking they might know a thing or two about it. Besides, who wouldn't like to receive a package of naturally aged, island produced cheeses? Just don't wrap it up and put it under the tree unless of course the tree is still growing outside and it's between 0 and 4 degrees Celcius or if your home is kept between 0 and 4 degrees Celcius and the present is in some sort of container that vermin and other animals can't get into. On second though, just don't put it under any tree.

Another non-dairy favourite for this time of year is Earth's Own SoFresh Almond Nog. It's dairy free, egg free and soy free but full of delicious fortified almond nog taste! Like it says on the bottle: an excellent source of holiday cheer!

Again, for those of you who prefer the real deal, we're now stocking Avalon Conventional 1L Eggnog in the glass bottle and Avalon Organic 1L Eggnog in the festively designed carton. These two are both very rich, creamy and decadent. If Canada Dry is the "champagne of gingerales" then this is the champagne of eggnog! Get it while you can because once the holidays are over, so too, is your opportunity to buy it. Oh let's not forget to mention that we have Island Farms 2L and 1L Eggnog cartons on the shelf now, too!

Just in time for the holidays (and the cold weather) are two new caffeine-free teas from Yogi. Yogi Tulsi Spiced Berry Cough & Cold Relief Tea contains holy basil/tulsi which is traditionally used in Ayurveda to help relieve coughs and colds. And for those of you who overdo it during the holidays (or who have kept on overdoing it since last Christmas) there's Yogi Roasted Dandelion Spice DeTox Tea. Dandelion is used in herbal medicine as a diuretic and to help treat (festive) digestive disturbances. Warm up to Yogi and get yourself better!

Bake My Day provides quality, gluten-free products. We've bragged about this Duncan, BC company in the past for their great tasting baked goods. And this year, they've added their Bake My Day Gluten-Free Christmas Cake. Each cake weighs over a pound and it's chock full of currants, cherries, raisins, lemon peel and other yummy ingredients. You're going to love this rich and dense fruit cake. Just don't drop it on your toe. By the way, we also have Bake My Day Pumpkin Pies in stock as a holiday dessert option!

Just in time for your holiday breakfasts is Bob's Red Mill Paleo Pancake & Waffle Mix. The company website states: Paleo Pancake & Waffle Mix is a grain-free breakfast or snack solution featuring nourishing almond flour, coconut flour, simple root starches, and organic coconut sugar. It’s the perfect recipe for a paleo-friendly breakfast or snack! Eggs and coconut oil are the only ingredients needed from your kitchen.  It's also certified gluten-free!

There you have it. Another newsletter is now history. Stay tuned for another next week and until then, take good care!
