We’ve all heard it a million times.
We could sing it in our sleep. Maybe we do.
For some of us, the iconic Folgers jingle transports us back to our childhood.
The Best part of wakin’ up is Folgers in my cup.
I think of days spent with my grandparents and remember my grandmother, reclining in her chair, relaxing with a cup of steaming hot coffee.
I loved the smell of that coffee and couldn’t wait to have a sip- of course, I wasn’t allowed to drink coffee as a child. Sometimes, my grandmother would leave the room and I’d secretly gulp down some of the warm brown liquid. I admit I may have wondered what the appeal was.
It wasn’t until much later when I worked the night shift as a waitress that I began to appreciate a great cup of Folgers coffee.
Today, I can barely brew my morning coffee without humming the tune we’ve all grown to know and love, while softly singing the accompanying words.
It sure is catchy.
The iconic Folgers jingle has become a piece of pop culture with generations of Americans singing the words at the slightest hint of the melody.
My parent’s sing it. I sing it. My children sing it. It’s nostalgic.
