Inside Pepper's

Pepper's Newsletter September 11, 2018

Pepper's Newsletter September 11, 2018

Good morning!  The first week of the 2018/19 school year is in the books and even though it's still officially summer, the weather would seem to indicate otherwise. Fall is quickly approaching and so is Thanksgiving which means that you need to start thinking about reserving a fresh turkey from our Meat Department. We'll share varieties and prices in an upcoming newsletter but for now we're just putting this on your radar because October 8th is Thanksgiving Monday and that will be here before you know it!

Parents know that getting the kids to eat their vegetables can be a real challenge. That's why it's a great idea to pick up Catelli Smart Veggie Spaghetti! This is white pasta that provides 1/2 serving of vegetables per 85g of pasta. They combine Canadian durum wheat, oat fibre (and lots of it!), carrots and cauliflower into a delicious noodle that you cook to perfection in only six minutes! Now you can get little Johnny to eat a high fibre meal while sneaking in some veggies, too! Best Parenting Award goes to: (your name here).

If you or your family like Cheerios then perhaps you'll want to try this classic cereal elevated to the next level. Very Berry Cheerios is a special edition flavour of four berries (raspberry, strawberry, blueberry and, surprisingly, cranberry) squished into the iconic General Mills breakfast staple. No artificial flavours or colours are used to enhance the taste or appearance of this cereal. It's simply delicious whole grain oats and the taste of real berries combined to create a delicious breakfast that everyone will love!

Another special, yet limited, edition product on the shelf is Olympic Krema Pumpkin Spice Yogurt! After the huge success of this flavour last year, they've brought it back for another run. And why not? You can get a pumpkin spice latte to go with your pumpkin spice muffin at the cafe, a pumpkin spice martini at the bar and heck, you can even buy pumpkin spice waffles and gum and ice cream! It's gotten out of hand! But this is a premium yogurt, thick and rich with 9% milk fat, and fruit on the bottom. And it's only available until November so make sure you get some while you can! And also look for Olympic Krema Strawberry and Olympic Krema Cherry flavours as well!

Another food craze from awhile back was coconut water. You can buy coconut water with pulp, without pulp, with added flavours such as mango, pineapple, guava...you name it. But there's a reason for coconut water's appeal:

  • low calorie
  • contains natural electrolytes and isotonics
  •  rich in potassium
  • fat and cholesterol free

So we've added yet another choice to the list with Everland Coconut Water. Everland is a Burnaby company so you're supporting a BC business when you purchase their products. Plus, they support small scale farmers by donating 1% for every can you buy. 

Closing out this weeks new products is Mocolate by Victoria, BC, company Heartisan Foods. It's the "raw vegan power snack!" But what is it actually? The company website describes it as, "a decadent carob power snack full of complete plant based protein and whole food ingredients for your brain."

The herbal blend contains licorice root, marshmallow root, true cinnamon, ashwagandha, chag mushroom, fo-ti root, shilajit and carob.

The gold bar contains 100mg of hemp CBD (cannobidiol Isolate). No, you can't get high by eating this bar! That would require the compound called THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) which is the main psychoactive cannabinoid of cannabis. This ain't that. In fact, there are zero mind altering substances contained within. But the purported benefits of CBD include pain and inflammation reduction, anxiety and depression reduction and a reduction of cancer-related symptoms, among others.

Pepper's does not endorse the efficacy of this product.

It's up to you to do your homework and see if Mocolate with CBD is right for you.

Closing out, the prize that we're offering currently is a set of two metal Stylecraft Lamps with LED Edison-style bulbs! Simply sign the back of your receipt with your name and number and deposit it in the draw box at the front of the store. The draw date is October 16th and you can enter as many times as you like! 

Take good care until next week!
