Everyone knows the tune -> The Best Part of Wakin’ Up is Folgers in Your Cup. It’s so catchy, bright and fun, don’t you think?
I remember hearing this jingle when I was a kid. The smell of coffee immediately comes to mind, along with adults chatting in the background and sitting on the couch watching television with my brother. It’ also reminds me of my grandparents too.
I love how a piece of music and/or a certain scent can bring you back somewhere you haven’t been in a while. It’s sort of magical.
But, back to the music -> It’s no surprise that the iconic Folgers jingle has become a piece of pop culture – generations have heard the tune and sing along with the words. With this partnership with Folgers®, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that they have a long-standing tradition of inspiring musicians to follow their dreams. This year, Folgers has teamed up with country music singer-songwriter Chris Young to encourage aspiring musicians to create their own version of the iconic Best Part of Wakin’ Up™ Jingle in the Folgers Jingle Contest.
I think it’s really cool that Folgers is using their iconic tune to inspired musicians to chase their dreams and come up with something amazing their own. Such a great challenge for young people to work on and grow their passion. I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with!
And now I am sure I’ll be humming along with “The Best Part of Wakin’ Up is Folgers in Your Cup” the rest of the day! Ha!
