Inside Pepper's

Peppers Newsletter September 15, 2020

Peppers Newsletter September 15, 2020

Good morning!  If you have the soundtrack to the film 2001: A Space Odyssey (the Richard Straus "Sunrise" theme) put it on now and continue with the newsletter. For today marks a very special day for Pepper's Foods! Actually, it was yesterday but that's not important right now. What is important is that the Pepper's Foods Online Grocery Shopping site is, well, online! Yes, we are all-systems-go with a right proper site to allow you to shop with convenience and ease. If you want to use it right now, head on over to peppersfoods.ca.shophero.com/shop/home

In a day or two you'll be able to access the link from our website but for now,  just cut and paste or click on the link to access our online store! You will need to create an account in order to place an order but it's quick and easy to do. The first thing you'll see are a series of 16 thumbnails that will take you to the most frequently purchased items. You can access all categories through the Shop Now tab at the top of the page. You can view our Weekly Ad, see what's on sale, check out your orders, see what's trending and access loads of recipes and other cool stuff. There's also a FAQ section to help you, if you need it. You can choose whether you want your profile to save your credit card information or, if you prefer due to privacy concerns, you can provide it each time. There's even a My Favourites section where you can store the items you love most for easy ordering next time you shop!

But please keep this in mind: there will inevitably be some bugs and things to fix such as things that are miscategorized or items missing. Please be patient! There are literally thousands of items that need to be catalogued. This was a huge undertaking and several members of our staff worked tirelessly getting this up and running. We want it to provide the best shopping experience possible for you and we'll get there. In the meantime, enjoy this new way to shop at our store! As Gord Downie of The Tragicaly Hip once said, "It's been a long time coming. It's well worth the wait."

We have numerous bakery items in our newsletter this week. The first brand to tell you about is from GluteNull, a vegan, gluten-free, paleo, keto-friendly and organic bakery that we introduced you to a few weeks ago when we only had one kind of their bread (Coconut Ciabatta). But now we've added three more: GluteNull Buckwheat, GluteNull Amaranth and GluteNull Quinoa because it seems it's what the people want! All three are sugar-free, yeast-free, dairy-free, egg-free and they're also free of the top 11 allergens! 

In addition to the bread we also have GluteNull Almond Fatty Buns. With these you get the same keto and paleo-friendly traits with a good amount of protein, ulta low carbs and a high fat content! It's an innovative product for our ketogenic customers!

Croissants are one of life's simple pleasures. Flakey, moist, buttery and delicious are all perfectly acceptable adjectives describing these baked beauties. But wouldn't it be amazing if you could buy not a loaf of bread but a loaf of croissant? Now you can! Our Deli Department has available two kinds of delicious Croissant Loaf: Classic as well as Cinnamon & Brown Sugar! Pull off a hunk and just chow down! Make a sandwich! Use it as you see fit! These loaves are super satisfying and yummy no matter how you choose to eat them!

Irene's Bakery is Vancouver Island's largest family owned and operated wholesale bakery. And it's located right here in Victoria. In 2019 they merged with another beloved company, 6 Mile Bakery, and took over its Carey Road production facility. Both bakeries had always focused on producing traditional European breads. Combined, their bakers have over 200 years of baking experience! And now you can purchase several types of 6 Mile Bakery Loaves at Pepper's! In addition to the foil wrapped Garlic Bread (not shown) there's Homemade White, Homemade Whole Wheat and Homemade Peasant Loaf. It's the freshest sliced bread around! 

And now for something new from Irene's Bakery. They know that the simplest ingredients often make for the best products. And that's why we now carry Irene's Bakery Peanut Butter Cookies and Irene's Bakery Ginger Cookies! You can't go wrong with either of these two flavours. They're the staple flavours of the cookie realm for good reason. 

Here's a little history taken from the website of our next new item: In 1890, Chemist John J. McLaughlin of Toronto, started to manufacture soda water, which he sold to drugstores in siphons as a mixer for fruit juices and flavoured extracts. 14 years and hundreds of experiments later, McLaughlin finally perfected the formula for his Canada Dry Pale Ginger Ale. He also developed mass bottling techniques and served Canada Dry wherever people gathered. In 1923, P. D. Saylor and Associates purchased the entire company from the McLaughlin family and formed the public corporation, Canada Dry Ginger Ale, Inc.

New Canada Dry Premium Ginger Ale is the ultimate in ginger ales. It's crafted from cane sugar and we're not sure what else makes it a "premium" ale but that's what the packaging says so we're going with it. It comes in a four pack of glass bottles so you know it's good. Only inferior sodas come in plastic bottles or aluminum cans. Everybody knows that. 

And lastly this week, we bring you two excellent new teas from Tazo! Does an infusion of green tea, matcha, mate and grapefruit sound inviting? If so, you'll want to pick up a box of Tazo Matcha Mate Graprefruit Tea! Or how about the herbal happiness of aromatic golden turmeric and the flavour of sweet passionfruit? You'll find it in Tazo Turmeric Bliss. There's a chill in the air and a new season calls for a new tea or two!

As always, you'll find our advertised specials attached to this newsletter. And don't forget to noodle around on the new shopping site! We're confident that once you get familiar with it, you'll want to use it every time you shop with us! Stay safe out there and take good care!
