I customized my coffee using Folgers®, as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #MyIcedCafe
My love of all things coffee hasn’t always been so. When I was in college I was strictly a soda drinker. I didn’t even want to try coffee. I would drink hot chocolate, I would indulge in a sniff or two of the brewing coffee, but I didn’t like it. I just don’t think I had met the right one yet.
My Mother is a religious coffee drinker. I have very fond memories of growing up and waking to the smell of brewing coffee in the house. I would sneak a drink when she wasn’t looking and while I didn’t care for coffee then, I did love doing something I knew I wasn’t supposed to do. (I wasn’t mischievous at all….lol) My Mom’s brand of choice has always been Folgers®. I have quickly learned that people are serious about their coffee. You like your coffee the way you like it and that’s the only way you want it. I have come to realize this about myself as well.
So a few years ago when I was in the middle of a job change and I needed a little extra pick me up, I decided I would give coffee another chance. I went to the familiar aisle that hailed that sweet aroma that immediately brought me back to my childhood and I picked up a red canister of Folgers® in a Robust flavor. I brought it home and started testing out different ways to drink my coffee. After what felt like years of trial and error I finally figured out that I like milk in my coffee with a little sweetener.
As you can imagine, I am married with a child and so life gets hectic and busy, especially with Hannah being in school now. So I can’t always take the time I would like to make my beloved café just the way I would like it. Well that’s until I was introduced to a new Folgers® product Iced Café concentrated coffee. My mind was blown, I mean could this really be the morning jolt I needed? I set out to try and find out. The directions said to just at a few squeezes to milk. I warmed my cup of milk in the microwave, and got it to the correct temperature that I prefer and then added a few squeezes to make a most delicious cup of coffee. I was amazed that in the time it took to warm my milk in the microwave I could make my morning Java and be out the door and on my way all the while help to get Hannah off to school!
I was so excited that I decided to try all the flavors available! When I had more time I decided to try the Folgers® Iced Café in frozen form by blending the drops and milk with ice in my blender! Again I wasn’t let down. So when I have extra time in the morning I will blenderize my Folgers® Iced Café and make a frozen coffee to die for! Check out Folgers® Iced Café and try it for yourself!
