I consider myself a coffee addict – one thing that the hubs and I have in common. Our day starts with not only a cup of coffee, but plenty…2 to 3 for me (sometimes 4) and just as many, if not more for the hubs. The hubs and I always kid about coffee as our source of “power” for the day and we would be powerless without it. And our favorite brand? Folgers, of course! But in all honestly, I hadn’t tried Folgers coffee until I got here in the U.S. And yes, it was my husband who introduced me to such delicious coffee. It has been his coffee of choice for as long as he can remember. His good taste is undeniably excellent. Got to give the credit where it is due, right? 😉
With a cup of coffee in hand, let’s talk more about Folgers, shall we?
“The best part of wakin’ up is Folgers in your cup…”
Who doesn’t recognize that jingle? The Folgers jingle has become an iconic piece of pop culture. I must admit, I am guilty myself of singing along with the jingle whenever I see the advertisement on TV. It’s one of those tunes that get stuck in your head and it stays right there in your head the entire day and you find yourself singing it over and over again. Can you relate to that?
And speaking of the iconic jingle, Folgers is sponsoring the Folgers Jingle Contest and is inviting aspiring musicians to join!
Together with country singer Chris Young, Folgers is encouraging aspiring musicians around the country to create their own version of the jingle, Best Part of Wakin’ Up™.
You can submit your video on their website from January 30 to February 27, 2017. Your version of the Jingle must include the complete melody and complete lyrics of “The Best Part of Wakin’ Up is Folgers in Your Cup.”
Five semi-finalists will be chosen from February 27 to March 19, and they will all have a mentoring session with Chris Young before the online vote.
All you fans around the country can vote daily for your favorite jingle from March 27 to April 24. Each vote automatically gives you the chance to win prizes up to $10,000. And the jingle contest winner will be selected and win the grand prize of $25,000 in May!
Isn’t that awesome?! So go ahead…have a cup of Folgers coffee while creating your own version of the jingle then enter the Folgers Jingle Contest and follow your dreams! Good luck!
