Inside Pepper's

Peppers Newsletter March 16, 2021

Peppers Newsletter March 16, 2021

Good morning! There's been a whole lot of news and social media coverage lately about space travel. With NASA's Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover successfully touching down on the red planet (launched July 30, 2020 and landing Feb. 18, 2021) and the numerous SpaceX flights that have occurred recently, these are very exciting times! But noine of it would be possible without a fellow named Robert H. Goddard. This American physicist, professor, engineer and inventor imagined, created and built the world's very first liquid-fuelled rocket. And he launched it on today's date in 1926. It only flew 56 meters into the sky but it was a remarkable accomplishment which led many to dub him "the man who ushered in the Space Age." This brilliant man patented 214 inventions, wrote several exemplary monographs regarding rocket science and because of these and other achievements, NASA had the Goddard Space Flight Center built named after him in 1959, 14 years after his death.

We have loads of new items to reveal this week so let's get down to business, shall we? Let's start off with another great local business based out of little old Victoria, BC! Moon Organics creates delicious and nutritious Superfood Powder Beverages containing ingredients from all around the world that are also used in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda diets! Choose from a variety of types and flavours in containers ranging from 18-30 servings! We have Happy Dreams Creamy Hot Chocolate (raw cacao, lucuma, bacopa, lion's mane & ashwagandha), Matcha Ritual (ceremonial matcha, lion's mane, MCT oil), Wake Cup Chai Chai Cha! (carob, chai mix, eleuthero, cordyceps, MCT oil & lion's mane), Sunny Delight Soothing Golden Beverage (turmeric, banana, lucuma, shatavari, MCT oil & reishi), and Mighty Berries (guava, maqui, acai, raspberrym, amla & chaga). Head on over to their website to read all about these innovative and nutritious mixes, as well as to learn more about the owners and their story! www.moonorganics.ca

Our Deli Department has added a bunch of new stuff this week, one of them being geared towards those on a paleo or keto diet. New Crepini Egg Wraps are made with, you guessed it, eggs but one of them is made with Cauliflower (no grains) and the other one Gluten-Free Grains! Neither contains any sugar, dairy or carbs and only 10 calories per wrap so if you have dietary restrictions these are the way to go!

And if you want a sweet treat that's 100% plant-based, sugar-free and also paleo and keto friendly, choose Sweets From the Earth Sugar-Free Cookies in either Peanut Butter or Chocolate Chip flavours! Each kind has only 1 gram of net carbs per cookie and absolutely no sugar, plus, they're certified gluten-free by the Canadian Celiac Association.

Most of us think of some kind of jerky if we've got a hankering for some meat snacks, right? But now you can get Freybe (fry-bee) Snack Salami Slices in Chorizo, Classic and Italian Wine when you want some meat to go! They're gluten-free, lactose-free and 100% pork! Toss one in your lunch kit or reach for one for your mid-afternoon snack to get you through until dinner. So good!

Could real, authentic bagels taste any better? The answer is...YES! By adding some Epicureal Everything Bagel Seasoning you're adding a blend of crunchy, nutty and salty flavours to your already delicious bagel! This product of Canada contains sesame seeds, sea salt, onion powder, poppy seeds and garlic and you can find it in aisle 3 with the other seasonings and spices!

In 1962 in the Okanagan, Mr. Ted Atkinson founded Summerland Sweets, a company which specializes in fruit flavoured syrups and jellies! Pepper's already carries several of the syrups and now we have another sweetly satisfying one for your breakfast table: Maplapple Syrup! It's an apple-flavoured syrup that goes perfectly on your pancakes, waffles, french toast, crepes, ice cream cheesecake or plain yogurt!

Let's move on to some dairy products. We've been expanding our lactose-free choices steadily over the past few years as the demand steadily rises. So we're very happy to now offer Tre Stelle Lactose-Free  Traditional Feta! it's the same taste and texture as their regular traditional feta but without the lactose! Woo-hoo! This is so new, it's not even on their website! But if it's anything like their other multi-award-winning feta cheeses, it's sure to make your salads, pizzas and Greek dishes extraordinary!

Olympic Dairy Organic Vanilla Greek Yogurt contains real vanilla beans and milk from grass-fed cows. It's 100% all natural. There's not much more to say about it, really. We know that Olympic makes great tasting yogurt so if you're in the market for organic greek yogurt, here's our newest offering.

Cam, our Produce Manager, just loves adding new items to his inventory! Whether it's Mangosteen Fruit, Mini Bananas, Cotton Candy Grapes or something savoury like Save Da Sea Foods Vegan Smoked Salmon or Very Good Butcher Very Good Dogs, he likes to "keep it real" so to speak. Our customers appreciate a varied selection instead of him just offering the same old stuff. So keep an eye oput for things like Pluots (a tangy cross between a plum and an apricot. I'm not sure if I prefer that or Apriplum.) or Starfruit (aka the Carambola which is a sweet and sour fruit from Southeast Asia).

Easter is coming up quickly and if you look around the front of the store, you'll see that we are starting to get in some goodies for this holiday. But you don't have to wait until Easter to indulge just a little bit right now. That's why you should pick up some Christie Chips Ahoy! with Cadbury Mini Eggs Cookies! This is a family-sized bag because they know all who partake will quickly deplete the contents! Seriously, Chips Ahoy! plus chocolate eggs = off-the-hook amazing taste! Get some now before they're gone!

As if March is halfway over already! It's kind of crazy just how quickly the time goes by. So make good use of yours by reading the attached weekly advertised specials and either place your order online or by a good old fashioned telephone call. Of course, you could always come down to the store and check things out for yourself. We love seeing our customers in person. So as Ron Burgundy and Veronica Corningstone would say, "Stay classy." and "Thanks for stopping by." (Oh, and take good care!)
