Inside Pepper's

Peppers Newsletter February 9, 2021

Peppers Newsletter February 9, 2021

Good morning!  For all you youngsters out there, today, in 1964, the Fab Four, the Liverpudlian Lads, George, John, Paul and Ringo otherwise known as The Beatles, made their first live appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. Needless to say, it made for a "really big shew" as more than 73 million people tuned in to see the shaggy haired yet snappy-looking group. This marked the beginning of the British invasion and was a record-setting event for US televisionsurpassing the viewership of Elvis Presley's appearance on the variety show three years earlier. The setlist that night included "All My Loving", "Till There Was You", "She Loves You", "I Saw Her Standing There" and "I Want  to Hold Your Hand."

There are a couple of things to mention before we get into the meat of the newsletter. Until February 12th, you can have the shopping fee waived if you're a first time user of our online store! Whether you're looking to have your order delivered or you'd rather pick it up at the store, you can save a little bit extra. So if you haven't shopped online with us yet, now's the time!

We have an exciting contest on now as well!

Enter to Win a Virtual Perogie Making Class

Buy some Perogie Pinchers perogies – put your name and phone number on the back of your receipt and drop it in the entry box. One winner will be contacted in early March!

Invite your friends, neighbours and even your in-laws and get ready to roll up your sleeves, do a little pinching and have your very own Private Perogie Party! This is a perfect and unique idea for birthdays, anniversaries, team-building and much more!

100% gluten-free is what Victoria bakery Origin Bakery is all about. Whether you're looking for sweet cookies, chews and bars or delicious, savoury breads, buns and rolls Origin Bakery has it all. Their loaves contain no dough conditioners or preservatives and freeze great! 

get your cheese and crackers all-in-one with two new Cheez-It Baked Snack Crackers! Cheez-It Italian Four Cheese Snack Crackers contain four types of 100% real cheese baked right in! Or choose Cheez-It Crunch Original Cheddar Baked Snack Crackers, the cracker with that extra satisfying crunch!

As long as we're talking about cheese, we may as well talk about cheese-like prodcts new to Pepper's. Daiya Mexican 4 Cheeze Flavoured Blend is the deliciously dairy-free cheese alternative made with chick peas! It contains a blend of cheddar, monterey jack, asadero and queso quesadilla flavoured shreds without the soy, dairy or gluten. Or you could pick up a pack of Daiya Smoked Gouda Flavoured Slices. Their website describes it like this:  Sharp yet sweet with just the right amount of smoked flavor, they’re made with our new, improved recipe for even better taste, texture and melt. Pure plant-based perfection.

How about a plant-based, dairy-free product that's spreadable on your favourite crackers or artisan bread? Boursin, renowned for their incredibly delicious soft cheese spreads, now has something just as good for the dairy-free consumer! Boursin Dairy Free Cheese Spread Alternative is made of a base of high-quality coconut oil infused with Garlic & Herbs. It's a super smooth and creamy cheese-free spread that subs perfectly for regular Boursin!

Looking for an apple that you can bake with, cook with, juice or eat fresh? How about an all around versatile apple that's crisp and sweet yet tangy? Or an apple that's cellared in the fall until the new year in order to enrich the unique taste and texture? If so, may we suggest the most excellent Red Prince Apple? This Canadian-grown fruit is a cross between a Golden Delicious and Red Jonathan apple and the name comes from the grower who first discovered this NATURAL cross apple in a small town along the Dutch-German border: Mr. Princen. He was inspired by its rich, perfect deep red colour. It was originally transplanted to Canada in Thornbury, Ontario, situated along the shores of Georgian Bay.

Here's another very different type of fruit that makes the perfect cocktail or cheese tray garnish or dessert topping for a decadent dessert. Sable & Rosenfeld Bourbon Tipsy Dark Reserve Cherries are, as the company website states: Large, firm, blush variety of Oregon-grown Stardust™ cherries have been packed in our exclusive syrup spiked with Bourbon to create the “Dark Reserve”. I don't know about you but I could probably polish off that jar all by itself. What more of an excuse do you need to really go overboard than a global pandemic?

Another way to get loopy is with new Kashi Organic Cocoa Loops or Kashi Organic Cinna Loops Cereals! Whether you choose the equally delicious chocolate or cinnamon flavour, you get: 25 grams of whole grains, 4 grams of protein and 3 grams of fibre per 40 gram serving of this certified organic and vegan breakfast treat!

It's been awhile since a Health & Beauty product found its way into the newsletter but for all you lovely ladies out there, here are two just for you! If you've ever used EOS Lip Balm, you know just how well these work to keep your lips soft and moisturized. Now you can have that same feeling when you shave with EOS Shea Better Shave Cream Vanilla Bliss which provides 24 hour moisture. It contains shea oil as well as shea butter and can be used wither wet or dry! The non-foaming formula contains vitamins C and E for an antioxidant packed ultra-smooth shave! Or check out EOS Pomegranite Raspberry Shave Cream which contains soothing aloe as well as shea butter for the same type of great shave that can be used on either wet or dry skin!

Perhaps we jinxed things last week by bragging about our balmy weather here on the island. The temperatures are forecast to drop over the next few days here so make sure you're prepared! Pepper's has kiln-dried kindling and firewood as well as firelogs to keep you warm when it gets chilly. So bundle up and stay warm and while you're at it, take good care!
