Inside Pepper's

Pepper's Newsletter February 19, 2019

Pepper's Newsletter February 19, 2019

Good morning!  Yesterday was Family Day and what a beauty of a day it was!  The sun tried its best to shine, the snow was melting, the birds were chirping and hopefully people put down their phones and picked up their kids and spent time with the people they love. As a family owned and operated business, we know that nothing is more important than family. We like to think of our staff as one big, happy one! So with whomever and however you spent your day, we hope it was special!

In 1839 Robert McVitie opened a bakery in Edinburgh. Fifty-three years later, the original McVitie's Digestive Biscuit was created. They're still making them to this day and we sell an awful lot of them here at Pepper's because they're so darn good. And a few weeks ago in the newsletter we mentioned how everything's better with chocolate. So it only makes sense that we brought in McVitie's Milk Chocolate Digestive Thins! Take delicately crispy golden baked wheat cookie thins and dip them in real milk chocolate and voila...! Your next newest favourite cookie! We ordered the dark chocolate ones, too, but they're not in stock yet. So keep your eyes peeled!

Don't worry, all you gluten free folk who are turning green with jealousy. We have something for you as well. Schar Gluten Free Chocolate Honeygrams are graham style cookies coated in dark chocolate and offered in three convenient portion packs! These are certified gluten-free and are also wheat-free and non-GMO. Plus, Schar supports celiac disease research and organizations that help people with special dietary needs! Why not pick up a bag of marshmallows and create the most  amazing s'mores EVER?!

While we're on the topic of chocolate, let's take this opportunity to mention that we have new Nestle Rolo Hot Chocolate! It's the delicious Rolo flavour combination of chocolate and caramel that you can drink as hot or you can mix it into a glass of milk and make awesome chocolate milk! 

Camu Camu. Sounds like something Mork from Ork would say to greet earthlings. But no, Camu Camu is a seedless berry pulp powder from the Amazon Rainforest that has the highest vitamin C content of any fruit in the world! In fact, 1 teaspoon has 270% of the RDI of vitamin C. Impressive! This is an antioxidant powerhouse of a fruit and you can mix it with water for a refreshing drink (either hot or cold), sprinkle on ice cream, stir into yogurt or smoothies, juice, tea or oatmeal! Imported from Victoria's Healinka Organics, when you purchase their products, you empower indiginous communities and help preserve the great rainforest! www.Healinka.ca

Has this ever happened to you: you're running around trying to get dinner ready and the only thing that you have to serve as a side dish is rice? And not the instant kind? That'll easily set you back thirty or forty minutes and there's no way you can keep your family waiting that long, right? Well now you can prepare Floating Leaf Pure Wild Rice in Minutes (10 minutes, to be exact)! That's right, the goodness of pure wild rice prepared in a fraction of the time it would normally take! But how is this possible? According to the product box their, "proprietary process achieves convenience without compromising the unique taste, texture, aroma and nutrition attributes of pure wild rice." That still doesn't explain it but all you need to know is that you can make nutritious and tasty rice real quick-like! You can check out this Winnipeg company's website at eatwildrice.ca.

Another question: have you ever eaten Chicago Mix popcorn? It's a unique combination of caramel and cheddar cheese flavoured popcorn. Your first reaction to hearing this may be to scrunch up your nose. And rightfully so; it kinda sorta sounds like it wouldn't taste very good. But wrong you would be to make that assumption! Very wrong, in fact. Because this is one of those snacks that will make you say, "I can't believe I never tried this before now!" the moment you take your first handful. Pepper's has long carried G.H. Cretors Chicago Mix Popcorn but only recently have we stocked a convenient 42g snack-sized bag! Now you don't have to purchase a huge bag if you don't want to, but if you buy the snack bag to try it out, you'll want to purchase a huge bag! It's THAT good!

There you have it, folks. Another newsletter is in the books. Don't forget to check out our weekly specials which start today and run until closing next Monday. See you next week!
