Pepper's Newsletter February 5, 2019

Pepper's Newsletter February 5, 2019

Zaoshang hao!  Today marks the beginning of Chinese New Year and one of the customs associated with this is for a family to do a deep clean of the house in order to remove any residual bad luck and to de-clutter to allow for good fortune to enter. So as soon as you finish reading this, get out the broom, mop and sponge and get to it. Even if your luck doesn't change, at least you'll have a tidy place to return to after you've come back from shopping at Pepper's! And this week, our ad is built around Chinese New Year which means that many of your Chinese culinary needs are on sale. 

Oh and before we forget, we've started printing out this newsletter and placing it by the entrance, right beside where we keep our flyer. So if you get to the store and you've forgotten what it was that you read about in the newsletter, feel free to take a copy, refresh your memory and never worry again about what it was you were supposed to buy!

Kicking things off in the New Products category is Caboo 100% Bamboo and Sugarcane Paper Napkins! These 100% tree-free (and chlorine-free) paper napkins combine the strength of bamboo with the softness of sugarcane fibres. They're readily biodegradable and safe for all septic systems. And they utilize waste up-cycling, meaning that the sugarcane fibre is used once it's been harvested for making sugar. And just so you know, the bamboo used in the creation of these napkins is not a food souce for Pandas so the manufacture of this product in no way has an effect on their habitat!

Though not new, this is the perfect opportunity to tie-in one of the items featured in our ad specials this week: True Earth Dragon Towels are ad-priced for $4.96. On second thought, you might want to shop first before you clean your house like we mentioned in the opening paragraph because these paper-free yet re-usable towels will certainly help with any mess. And one roll can last up to 6 months! You can machine wash each towel up to 25 times and once it's worn out, just toss it in the compost! And just like the napkins, Panda habitat is not impacted by the harvest of the bamboo. Plus, True Earth Paper Corp. is located right here in Victoria, BC and is the same company that brings you Silk N' Soft Bathroom and Facial Tissues.

Now let's move from True Earth to Yum Earth. Specifically, Yum Earth Organic Gummy Fruits. With Valentine's Day just around the corner, instead of the kids giving out the usual paper valentines, why not have them give a sweet treat to pass out instead? There are 10 mini snack packs in each bag that make instant valentines! And with flavours of  Very Very Cherry, Perfectly Peach and Strawberry Smash, who wouldn't just love to receive these delightfully vegan sweets? There's no high fructose corn syrup, dyes, gluten, or allergens either so you can relax about whether the receiver can actually have them!

If you're looking for a more "grown up" gift to give your sweetheart then Victoria's own Pure Lovin' Chocolate Assorted Cremes are definitely going to get you some lovin'! Six different creme varieties (well, five cremes and one caramel) are enveloped in organic, fair-trade dark chocolate and come in a loverly heart-shaped box. Or there's a Pure Lovin' Chocolate Sweet Heart which is a heart-shaped chocolate filled with vanilla bean creme and comes with the Charles M. Schultz quotation printed on the bottom of the package: "All you need is love but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt."

A little while ago we started carrying Yeshi Nutritional Yeast Dressing (of Mill Bay, BC) and it's quickly become a very popular choice for shoppers seeking a dairy, nut, gluten and egg-free dressing. And now there's a new Smokey Chipotle flavour!  If it's half as good as the other three flavours that we stock, you're in for a treat! 

Hellmann's has been making traditional mayonnaise since 1913 but only recently has it moved into making an organic version. Hellmann's Organic Mayonnaise is made with organic free run eggs, organic expeller pressed oil and no preservatives. It's great because now you don't have to spread a regular mayo on that organic free-range turkey, organic lettuce, organic tomato on organic whole grain bread sandwich that you just masterfully created in the kitchen.

And if you're looking to wash said sandwich down with something, perhaps regular old ordinary water just won't do. No, you need something like Infused Hemp Water in Frosted Mint flavour. That's right, it's ozonated spring water with hempseed and pure peppermint oil added for a refreshing beverage containing healthy omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. But don't worry, there's no mood altering THC in the bottle. The only thing you'll alter by drinking this Canadian water is your thirst.

Remember, each Thursday we offer a one-day only super low-priced item that's on sale all day. And this week it's locally produced Stubborn Chef Ginger Dressing for the great price of $6.49! We sell a boat load of this condiment so it must be good! Try some with your dinner this Thursday!

As always, thank you for taking the time to read up on what's new at Pepper's. Until next week, take good care!
