Target Made Me Do It: 1850 Brand Coffee Style!

Last day of school, last day of school!

My kids are rather sad, actually, and that's making ME sad! Summer is all about boldness and bold choices, and I'm excited to have 1850 Brand Coffee.

My kids are rather sad, actually, and that’s making ME sad! Summer is all about boldness and bold choices, and I’m so excited to have found 1850 Brand Coffee at Target. I’ve been writing for Target Made Me Do It for over a year now – sharing some pride and joy and new finds monthly on their blog. This month it’s about 1850 Brand Coffee and how much I love it.

There are a few great things about 1850 Brand Coffee. For one, it’s a new premium coffee from the makers of Folgers. For another it’s available in four signature blends of Ground and K-Cup coffee and will also be available in 3 Ready to Drink flavors. It’s bold and smooth, and never bitter. I can’t keep talking about it here, though! I don’t want to give away any spoilers. You’ll have to go read the post and tell me what you think about my choice in coffee, in little cakes I eat while I drink my coffee, and how wonderfully scenic it is on my deck! Seriously, it’s gorgeous. You’ll want coffee there.

Check out my post on the Target Made Me Do It blog. You’ll love it there!

Meet you there!

Thank You to the Meal Makers: Buddig Sweepstakes!

This review was made possible by iConnect and Buddig. I was provided compensation to facilitate this post, but all opinions stated are 100% mine.

In honor of the 75th Anniversary, the Buddig Sweepstakes is giving customers the opportunity to win up to $75,000 worth of prizes. #ad #ThankYouMealMaker

Think about the best meal maker in your life.

For me it’s my mom, of course. She made meals for seven family members, tirelessly, over the course of many years. In fact, it doesn’t really stop! The five of us kids are in our 30s now and she still makes us great meals when we visit, or when she visits us! In fact, she made me my favorite scrambled eggs just this morning. We have ten chickens so all we had to do was go outside to get the freshest eggs around, and then she made magic with them. I’m already thinking about lunch, which will no doubt be a sandwich with thin-sliced Buddig lunchmeat. Maybe with some cheese, mustard and fresh lettuce.

Mmm.. and pickles and chips. A perfect lunch for a family.

Buddig Sweepstakes

On top of the Buddig Sweepstakes, for a bit more info on Buddig, they’re based in Homewood, Illinois. Carl Buddig and Company is owned and operated by third generation Buddig family members. And in recent years, fourth generation family members have also joined the organization that is known for their convenient and affordable meats. They offer the best quality of thin-sliced lunchmeat to communities across America. And they’d loved to extend their gratitude to everyone who has made more than just a sandwich. The “Meal Makers” bring families closer together by feeding bellies, and I love that Carl Buddig and Company are celebrating 75 years of feeding family traditions by honoring those “Meal Makers.”

Don’t forget to enter the Buddig Sweepstakes here for your chance to win!
