Inside Pepper's

Pepper's Newsletter March 26, 2019

Pepper's Newsletter March 26, 2019

Good morning!  On this day in 1874, Robert Lee Frost was born in San Francisco, going on to become widely regarded by many as the greatest American poet of the 20th Century. He won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry four times, only one of four to achieve this accomplishment and the only poet ever to do so. In honour of his remarkable and enduring body of work, and because spring has finally arrived, here are a few lines from his 1923 poem Nothing Gold Can Stay:

Nature’s first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf’s a flower; But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf, So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day, Nothing gold can stay.

This week we have a lot to tell you about so without further adieu, let's get to it!

If you refuse to purchase conventional spray air fresheners because they contain loads of chemicals that you'd rather not expose yourself and your personal space to then you need Purple Frog  Aromatherapy Travel Sprays available in three scents: Recharge (Peppermint & Eucalyptus), Relax (Lavender & Chamomile) and Refresh (Lemongrass & Tea Tree). These natural air care products are made with plant-based essential oils and contain absolutely zero chemical additives, fragrances or odour masking additives. And because they come in a stealthy 15ml tube, you can have on-the-go freshness wherever and whenever you like! www.purplefrogproducts.com

Everybody likes ice cream. Ok, that might be a stretch. There are probably a lot of people that don't like ice cream. If that's you, skip ahead to the milk. For those of you who do happen to like ice cream, you'll be very pleased to know that we have expanded our Nestle Ice Cream flavours to include Oreo CookieChips Ahoy Cookie, Caramilk and Turtles! Your birthday cake will be green with envy for its companion ice cream having upstaged it!

But for those of you who insist on nothing but the best, you're going to want to try our new lineup of Haagen-Dazs Extraaz Premium Ice Creams. As if Haagen-Dazs could get any better, right? Well it has, and you're going to want to taste it for yourself. With flavours like Banana Peanut Butter CupCookies & CreamRocky RoadStrawberry Cheesecake and Cookie Dough Dynamo there's no shortage of extraordinarily rich and decadent ice cream to choose from. So go ahead and take some home. Feel free to slam back the whole tub.

As long as we're riding this dairy train, let's tell you about a brand new size of glass bottled milk from Avalon Organic Dairy. Now you can purchase Organic Homogenized MilkOrganic 2% Milk and Conventional Chocolate Milk in a 1.89L glass bottle. Because let's face it, one measly litre of milk just won't cut it.

And what goes great with milk? That's right, breakfast cereal! So why not pick up a box of new Post Honey Bunches of Oats Apples & Cinnamon Bunches when you buy that big bottle of milk? Talk about a great one-two punch, especially now that it's got a new improved taste!

Pepper's has been supporting local business Stubborn Chef since its inception by selling Stubborn Chef Ginger Dressing and it has been one heck of a huge seller because it's just so delicious. So when they told us that they were offering new Stubborn Chef Spicy Mayo, we didn't hesitate to find space on the shelf. If you want to spice up your sushi but not burn your tastebuds, then this is exactly what you need!

Though not new, Sawmill Sesame Steak Sauce is back after being unavailable for quite some time. This sauce is one that was created by a restaurant but found its way onto grocery store shelves and has been a solid seller (at least at Pepper's) ever since.

If you love rice crackers, chances are you've tried Laiki Red Rice or Black Rice Crackers, both kinds having been available at the store since they were released ages ago. But now they've added two new exciting flavours: Red Rice with Cracked Black Pepper and Black Rice with Cheddar Flavour. And as luck would have it, all four varieties are in our ad this week for $2.86 each! Made with 100% whole grain rice, sustainably sourced oils and sea salt, these crackers are certified vegan, gluten-free and super addictive!

Bigger isn't always better so if your preference is to snack on something smaller, Sesmark Mini Rice Crackers are defintely going to pique your interest! We've got Lightly SaltedBlack Bean Salsa and Chili Lime flavours and with one serving of 40 crackers consisting of only 130 calories, you get a nice sized snack to fill you up without a giant calorie hit!

Just a reminder that Easter is right around the corner. So if you're looking for chocolate treats, baskets, egg dying kits and lots of other easter goodies, we've got you covered. Come in and take a look at what we have to help you put together a stellar cache that even the Easter Bunny would be jealous of!

Another not so new line of products that we've been out of for awhile is Smart Sweets Candy! Well thank your lucky stars  'cause they're back! Available in Fruit Gummy BearsSour Gummy BearsSour Blast Buddies and Berry Sweet Fish, they make highly colourful additions to those Easter baskets you may have in mind but they're low in sugar with only 3 grams per bag (85% less sugar than the leading gummy bear candy)! No artificial flavours, colours and no sugar alcohols are contained in these chewy and yummy treats. This is healthy candy you can feel good about. Kick sugar. Keep candy.

And just like that, another newsletter has come to an end. As always, thanks for taking the time to read it. And until next time, take good care and have a great week!
