Inside Pepper's

Pepper's Newsletter March 5, 2019

Pepper's Newsletter March 5, 2019

Good morning!  After a brutal February it was so nice to see March come in like a lamb again (last year was the same)! And now that it's arrived, let's remind you that Sunday is the start of Daylight Savings Time. DO NOT forget to set your clocks ahead one hour before you hit the hay on Saturday night!

Alright, now that you've been forwarned, it's time for everyone's favourite part of the newsletter: new products! Let's jump right in starting with IOGO Fruitbottom Yogurt 12x100g Multipacks! Available in Mango-Pineapple/Orange-MandarinStrawberry-Rhubarb/Strawberry-Raspberry and Blueberry/Blueberry-Blackberry this exquisite yogurt is made with plain, whole milk yogurt layered over real fruit creating a creamy and fruity yogurt with probiotics and 35% less sugar!

Another new product that can be found in our non-dairy section is Emborg Vegan Mozzarella Slices. Toronto Vegan Chef Doug McNish, who, by the way, was awarded the Now Magazine Readers Choice Award in his home town of Toronto Ontario, as Best Chef in the City in November 2017, has this to say about Emborg Vegan Cheese, "When I first tried Emborg Vegan Cheese I was blown away by not only the taste, but the texture and mouth feel. Not only does Emborg have the best taste of all Vegan cheeses on the market, but it melts like no other vegan cheese I have ever had. I am excited for what the team at Emborg has done and for the world to taste it." And look for Emborg Vegan Cheddar Slices on our shelves when it becomes available later this month!

Kellogg's Special K Protein Honey Almond Ancient Grains Cereal is crunchy flakes made with whole grain wheat, white and black rice and whole grain burgundy sorghum. You get a high protein, high fibre cereal and an opportunity to "Own Every Bite" whenever you eat it!

The next items aren't new but they are very popular so when we were unable to acquire them for some time, we thought it worth mentioning that they were back on the shelf! Umi's Kitchen Simmer Sauces in Coconut Curry and Butter Chicken are made in Canada (Vancouver) from domestic and imported ingredients and are necessary items for your kitchen pantry. And each jar offers four servings which means you can use one to cook a meal for your whole family!

Pepper's has long stocked an extensive line of La Tortilla Factory soft tortillas. And we've added one more! La Tortilla Factory Street Taco Size White Corn & Wheat Tortillas are like the slider burger buns of tacos! At only 10 cms across, you can make micro tacos in the comfort of your own home. Street meat and fresh ingredients required! And by the way, there are no GMO ingredients, hydrogenated or interesterified (is that like when you can't look away from a horror movie?) oils, artifical flavours or mono or diglycerides in these tiny tortillas.

Everyone loves to sip a refreshing beverage through a fun, colourful straw. And that little, innocuous act is becoming a big problem. It's estimated that 500 million straws are used just in the United States every single day. Imagine what that number is world wide. However, it's now becoming much more common to be served a drink at a bar or restaurant without a straw. But let's face it, straws are indeed fun and sometimes necessary. That's why we're now stocking The Future Is Bamboo Re-usable Drinking Straws! Each box contains six bamboo straws plus a convenient cleaning brush! Vegan and biodegradable, you can use and re-use these bamboo straws, clean and air dry! Drink. Clean. Repeat.

What do you do when it's time to replace that plastic handles toothbrush. nine times out of ten you toss it into the bathroom wastebasket and carry on with your life. Well, all that plastic ends up in the landfill and that spells more trouble for the planet. So in addition to straws, we also have The Future is Bamboo Toothbrushes! Whoa, that's pretty cool, right? Indeed it is. Because bamboo is naturally antimicrobial, you don't need to worry about yucky germs growing on it! And this bamboo is also panda friendly, grown by responsible farmers. It's a no-brainer when it comes time to choose your next toothbrush. Enjoy a clean mouth; enjoy a clean earth!

As we do every Thursday, Pepper's offers one deeply discounted item. And this week, it's Tre Stelle 100% Grated Parmesan Cheese 125g on for a ridiculous price of $2.79 each! Put it on your list and we'll see you on Thursday!

Remember last week when we mentioned that we have an authentic Toronto Blue Jays embroidered jersey up for grabs? It showed up here at the store the very next day and is hanging up to the left of the store entrance. Don't forget to enter the draw to win this great prize by signing your receipt with your name and contact information. Spring training has already begun!

Thanks so much for taking the time to read our newsletter! And for those who have taken the time to find a staff member or email us saying that you enjoy reading it, we'd like to say thanks again! Very kind of you, indeed.

Until next week, take good care!
