New This Week:


  1. Folgers, An Eye Opener

    I wake up and smell the fresh morning air.
    Knowing that today I will have no care.
    From my cup I take a little sip.
    Of Folgers Coffee that tastes sweet to my lips.

    The taste of Folgers always brightens my day.
    And makes me feel good in every way.
    When I drink Folgers, a flood of emotions erupt.
    Because the best part of wakin' up is Folgers in your cup.

  2. I recently heard that Folgers will be doing a jingle contest for 2011. Is that true?
