“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Folgers. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”I have to admit, I love coffee, and even though I only drink one cup a day, I need that extra boost in the morning. You see, mornings start early at our house. Even though I am a morning person by nature, waking up at 5:45 a.m. is even tough for me and I don’t feel energized until I have a cup of coffee.The first thing I do when I wake is look at my phone. I check for any missed calls or texts I received since I always turn off my ringer at night. Now that fall is here, I usually turn on the heater to make the house cozy and warm.The next thing I do is wake up my son, which is not an easy task. A growing 12 year-old boy doesn’t want to be up at the crack of dawn. While Danny rolls over, ignoring my wake up call, I am off to the kitchen to make coffee and say ‘hi’ to my little pooches who are happy to see me. I wish I could be this energetic first thing in the morning.
This is the calm before a busy, hectic morning. Let the search for missing shoes, books, glasses, clean clothes begin. The race to make the 6:35 a.m. school bus is on. Thank goodness for coffee!My coffee routine has been the same for as long as I can remember. Coffee, milk, a hint of sugar. Good but a bit boring. Thanks to Folgers, I now have a pretty tasty way to jazz up my coffee. If you want a fun little spin on the typical cup you drink each day you need to try Folgers Flavors. These little squeeze bottles are concentrated flavor enhancers and are great in both iced and hot coffee. With Folgers Flavors you can customize your coffee. The handy little bottles come in four flavors: Hazelnut, Caramel, Mocha, and Vanilla. I love, love anything with hazelnut – It’s like Nutella coffee. Seriously, so good. Caramel is my second favorite.My morning coffee is warming, soothing, and despite its bad rap, in small doses coffee is actually good for you. It’s filled with B vitamins and magnesium, and it even clears the liver and bowel of harmful toxins. It also helps increase your metabolism. Did you know coffee is great to drink right before you work out?The key to keep it healthy is to avoid the sugars and creams coffee often comes with, and instead, make your own with a few alterations to it. I like to use regular sugar to sweeten my coffee, and almond milk or regular milk as creamer. Now I also add a small squeeze of Folgers Flavors.
Another thing that’s great about Folgers Flavors is that they don’t require refrigeration. The small bottles are great for when you’re on- the- go. I will for sure throw a couple of bottles in my purse when I visit my daughter in Chicago. Why not keep a bottle in your car?If you want to #RemixYourCoffee experience, add Folgers Flavors to your coffee and you’ll never look at a cup of “joe” the same way again!
Speaking of remix, here’s a fun video by YouTube sensation Mike Tompkins. He has put his unique spin on the iconic Folgers jingle and created an original a capella version. This guy is so talented. Check out Mike’s YouTube page and his other videos.
