The end of an era!

Got a letter today from Lisa.
Good afternoon!
I was heartbroken to find out that two days ago, Farmer's Dairy in Nova Scotia have decided to discontinue making Beep. My sis lives in BC, and I've been known to bring frozen beep and Brother's Pepperoni out west when we visit, (once, an entire suitcase) to share with friends who are former residents of Halifax that now live in the suburbs around Vancouver.

When I head home tonite, I'll be going to grocery stores to snag some before it disappears. It's a sad, sad day.
Statemment from Farmers Dairy:
After more than 50 years, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue Beep juice. While Beep was once a staple in fridges and lunchboxes across Nova Scotia, sales have been declining for the past several years. Beep will start disappearing from store shelves over the next few weeks, so if Beep has a special place in your heart, pick up a carton soon.
You can send your condolences and/or complaints to Farmers Dairy HERE.


  1. I'm also going to miss BEEP!

  2. Oh heavens No! I am living in Ontario and when we come home it is one of the things we look forward to. Like Clams and Halifax Donairs. We have a Sobeys up here in the ottawa area maybe they could send it this way and see if it sells well? Breakfast, sometimes lunch, and late noght Donair runs always had Beep.So sorry to hear this news. Wish I could get another container before it is gone...Oh Well we will miss it also.

  3. This makes me so sad! I'm from Cape Breton, living in Saskatoon now. I have happy happy memories visiting the giant farmer's market outside Truro where they sold tons & tons of it. :(
