Pepper's Newsletter January 2, 2019

Pepper's Newsletter January 2, 2019

Happy New Year!! The slate's been wiped clean, the reset button pressed and it's out with the old and in with the new. If your 2018 was a bad year then no doubt you're looking forward to putting it behind you and starting fresh. If your 2018 was good then no doubt you're looking forward to another year full of opportunity. Either way, we're starting things off on the right foot with our first newsletter of the year!

If you made a resolution to eat healthier and reduce your sugar intake then pay attention because we have two new sweeteners that might interest you. Swerve is the Ultimate Sugar Replacement comprised of a unique blend of non-GMO ingredients that are derived from fruits and vegetables. It has zero calories, almost zero carbs, tastes, bakes and measures just like sugar, is tooth friendly and is easy to digest!

Lakanto Sweetener is very similar to Swerve with the exception that it also contains high-purity monk fruit extract. Monk fruit extract is almost 300 times sweeter than sugar so a little goes a long way! This sweetener also cooks, bakes and tastes like real sugar. So if you've decided that you need less sugar, you can still live the sweet life with these two products!

In previous newsletters we've extolled the benefits of including the "good" fats into your diet. And one of the products that contains them and sells like crazy is Fatso Hybrid Peanut Butter. This is an all-natural peanut butter enriched with plant-based superfats. Well, coming toward the end of the month is Fatso Cocoa Peanut Butter! It's still the same amazing high performance peanut butter except it's now even better because, well, everything's better with chocolate! Let's reiterate that this is not yet available! It will be soon, though, so put it on your radar and look for it on our shelves in about a month! We're sure this is going to be a BIG hit!

"Hey friend, pass the Nooch!" That's something you might hear at a vegan potluck. Nooch is a popular term among vegans for nutritional yeast. And nutritional yeast is a very popular topping for all kinds of foods because of its cheesy/nutty flavour, high protein and vitamin B12 content. So it only makes sense that somebody (actually three people) out there would put it on some popcorn and call it NoochPop by 3 Nutritious Sisters. They pop their corn in a blend of three organic oils: coconut, olive and avocado (see above product description for reason why), season it with nutritional yeast and voila: you get a gluten-free, vegan and dairy-free snack that tastes amazing and is 88% organic! And it's made in Vancouver! Available in numerous flavours, too! www.noochpop.ca

If you're going to have some delicious popcorn, you're probably going to want to have a drink handy as well. That's why it's a great idea to try one (or all) of these three new beverages from Fever-Tree. We have The Ultimate Tonic Water Selection consisting of Mediterranean Tonic Water, Premium Indian Tonic Water, Aromatic Tonic Water and Elderflower Tonic Water. Or you could try the Smoky Ginger Ale made with apple wood naturally smoked water and roasted barley malt extract for a unique and refreshing beverage taste! Finally, there's the Spiced Orange Ginger Ale containing the flavours of clementine, cinnamon and ginger! So if you've got a fever, the only prescription (in addition to more cowbell) is drinking these new Fever-Tree bevvies!

The next time you decide to serve up some veggies and dip, why not take it to the next level by adding Frank's Red Hot Buffalo Ranch Dip Seasoning? To make a crazy good dip simply take some cream cheese and sour cream (we have Island Farms 250ml Sour Cream in our ad this week for $1.26!), add the seasoning pouch and blend well. Then stir in some sliced green onion and crumbled bacon. It's the perfect blend of flavour and heat that'll spice up your next get together!

Heirloom tomato. You've heard the term before but do you really know what an heirloom tomato is? Simply put, an heirloom tomato is one whose seeds have been passed down from generation to generation which allows farmers to pick the seeds from the tomatoes with the most desireable traits such as size, shape, colour, juiciness, etc. And they're also open-pollinated which means that they are pollinated through natural means (non-hybrid). Heirloom tomatoes often taste less acidic than regular red tomatoes and can come in funky shapes and colours. Now you can get these lovely Canadian grown beauties in a can by purchasing Hunts Early Harvest Diced Heirloom Tomatoes. These tomatoes are grown in the Chatham-Kent region of Ontario and are canned within 24 hours of harvest. 

We should also mention that our Thursday Only Special for this week, January 3rd, is Lactantia Salted Butter 1lb for the low, low price of $3.99! Make sure to stock up because it's only priced this low for the day!

Here's hoping this first newsletter of 2019 finds you well! Until next week, take good care.
