I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Folgers. I received product samples (free coffee flavors!!!!!) to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
So the story goes that in 1991 on the day before school was letting out for holiday vacation, I fell asleep watching the Babes in Toyland 2 movie at school. I blamed the movie itself for my foggy, achy, all-around horrendous feelings, and then meekly got on the bus and went home. It was holiday vacation, after all. My mom was so excited to meet me at the front door after I got off the bus and shrugged off my backpack, with enough time to snuggle with our then two-year-old Samoyed, Chelsea.
All bets were off and all rules were changed. It was holiday vacation, after all, and we were about to celebrate Chanukah or Christmas or “Big Chanukah” or whatever we were calling it back in those days. My mom offered me a Twix bar. A golden Twix bar! I wasn’t allowed Twix bars.. ever. I declined her amazing offer. She looked confused and then brought out the big ones. The biggest guns in fact. “Coffee! Do you want a little Folgers with heavy cream??” I declined that too and slumped into a chair. And THAT is when she took my temperature. I declined Folgers coffee so she knew something must be wrong.
One of my favorite memories was to have Folgers with my mom, and yes, with heavy cream. It was so rich and delicious and something I miss a lot from living in New Jersey and close to my parents. I was so excited to learn about Folgers Flavors, and how they’re letting us brew exactly what we want. When I worked as an Innkeeper, I would always try to make coffee as good as my boss did. A co-worker and I would try anything to flavor coffee for the guests – we’d sprinkle cinnamon on the beans and then grind, or sprinkle it on the finished coffee and see what was better. We even tried caramel sauce meant for ice cream! I really love flavored coffee. I’m not it in for black coffee. I’m a decaf girl, with cream, sugar and whipped cream.
On a day like today, during a week like this, it feels like spring and I can take my coffee outside on the deck. For me, caramel is my flavor of choice today. For many of my loved ones too, waking up in the morning doesn’t happen easily. As adults, sometimes we need that first sip of morning coffee – knowing that the rich and bold flavor will help us get inspired to tackle our days. We all like our coffee differently – some with a touch or splash of cream, some with hazelnut, some with caramel, and some with both! Folgers knows that we like our coffee differently, so they’re helping us to customize it as we want it.
