Inside Pepper's

Pepper's Newsletter December 3, 2019

Pepper's Newsletter December 3, 2019

Good morning!  Sunday's Caroling In The Village was another HUGE success this year with loads of people turning out in the chilly night air to socialize, eat and drink delicious things and listen to the  amazing Mount Doug High School Jazz Band and Choir! Rumour has it that old St. Nick even made a brief appearance to the delight of children and adults alike! For those of you who attended, thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you again next year!

Today's newsletter is dedicated to a very special lady reading from all the way out in Ontario. So R.L. Happy Birthday! Enjoy celebrating the day you arrived to make the world a much better place! Coincidentally, today is also Ozzy Osbourne's birthday so you might as well just go off the rails on your birthday Crazy Train!

Alright folks, let's get to the stuff you all want to read about: new items at Pepper's Foods. We have a hefty amount to talk about so let's get cracking!

Victoria is known for many things: tea at The Empress, peacocks roaming Beacon Hill Park, horse-drawn carriages, being the last major North American coastal community to pump raw sewage into the ocean...

But it's also the place along Canada's West Coast to open the first plant-based butchery! The Very Good Butchers love butchering not meat, but beans! And we're thrilled to now offer our customers several delicious plant-based products such as The Very British Banger, The Very Good Burger and Smokin' Burger! With an impressive shelf life (up to 4 weeks in the fridge), you don't have to worry about not being able to consume them before they spoil! And because they're made with premium organic herbs and spices, you're going to absolutely love these soon-to-be meatless staples. Look for them in our tofu section at the end of Aisle 1.

For all you coffee drinkers who also dislike/can't tolerate dairy, we have a great new item: Elmhurst Original Unsweetened Hemp Creamer! That's right, it's coffee creamer made out of hemp (and only three other ingredients). We keep it in our non-dairy section in the Dairy Department but this item is totally shelf-stable. It really only needs to be chilled once opened. But that's not important right now. What is important is how much you're going to love this creamer! It's vegan, kosher, carrageenan, gluten, sugar and gluten-free and it's high in Omega-3 fatty acids. 

If we told you that there's a fermented probiotic yogurt without dairy that also tastes great, would you believe us? Well, you'd better believe it because it's hanging out right near the hemp coffee creamer! New Yoggu is a 100% vegan, plant-based yogurt alternative made with organic coconut cream, agar and bacterial cultures. It contains only 1 gram of sugar per serving and we gave both Original and Vanilla for you to love!

Gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan products just keep on coming! Next is new Shockingly Healthy, the decadent and delicious desserts made with chick peas and dates to form the ultimate sweet yet healthy treat created by a nutritionist in Ontario! Pepper's has Coconut Chocolate Chip Blondie Bars, Chocolate Chip Salted Peanut Butter Blondie Bars and Double Chocolate Brownie Bars, so tasty you'll be shocked they're not unhealthy!

If you're looking for another way to get shocked, look no further than Mum's Okanagan Sauce Co. Hot Sauce available in Sorta Hot and Darn Hot! A hybrid of hot sauce and gourmet BBQ sauce the company website states: it is made from 100% natural ingredients, is gluten free, contains no preservatives or MSG. Mums Sauce can be used in many ways, adding to it's unique versatility. Use it as a baste, marinade, dip, or in addition to other sauces. As the creator of your kitchen, you are only limited by your imagination. It really works great on anything and everything, from eggs, meats, sea food and veggies. Plus, it's a 100% Canadian owned and operated family business (much like us!).

Smoothie lovers listen up. We have a new line of organic frozen fruit that will make your anytime smoothie a delightful thing of beauty! Earthbound Farm Organic Fruit in Berry Blend, Strawberry and Mango Chunks offer all the goodness of organic fruits with the convenience of a resealable package. 

A lot of people love crepes. Ricky Bobby did but he didn't know it ("The really thin pancakes? Oh my God I love those!"). And a lot of people really love cheese. Now you can have the glorious taste sensation of Gavottes Mini Crepes with either The Laughing Cow Cheese or Boursin Garlic and Fine Herb Cheese. These little crispy crepes are stuffed with soft cheeses and are equally as fun to eat as they are delicious!

Rounding out today's new products comes from the oh-so popular The Little Stand from right here in Victoria. We've had their regular antipasto since it became available, but now there's a new Vegan Antipasto available! More choices means happier customers. And we're all about offering more (local) choices!

So long for now good people of the internet. Thanks and take good care until next week!
