Creating Memories with Folgers Perfect Measures
When I was a little girl my family owned a duplex. There were 8 of us; Mom, Dad, my two sisters, me; the youngest one, and my maternal grandmother. We lived on the first floor of the duplex. My dads mom and sister lived upstairs in the other half.
(I’m sitting on my moms lap (1 year) & lounging on the stairs outside our duplex @ age 3) On Sunday mornings my sisters and I would join my dad and go upstairs to his moms for a Sunday morning breakfast. I can still recall the aroma of Folgers coffee and bacon that filled the space – it was magical! For hours we would spend the morning upstairs eating, laughing, and playing. What I remember most vividly was sitting on my dads lap at the dining room table while he drank his Folgers coffee. I loved the smell so much that at the ripe age of 3 my dad offered me a sip.
Coffee was what the grown-ups drank, so sharing his cup was quite special! My dad took his Folgers with a touch of cream – it was heavenly! Many decades later I still drink my Folgers that same way. To this day when I smell coffee I reflect back to the days of sitting on my dads lap and sharing his cup of Folgers. Truly the best part of waking up those Sunday mornings was sharing the Folgers from his cup.
When I was invited to take part in the unveiling of a new product this past Tuesday by Folgers in St. Louis, I was eager to attend. The event took place at Lucas Park Grille in downtown St. Louis. There I met other St. Louis Bloggers along with Folgers representatives, Taisha & Cori, and spokesperson Danielle, where they shared with us the new Folgers Perfect Measures. It was so exciting to be able to test market this new product, which is revolutionary, in my opinion. What is Folgers Perfect Measures?:
- They’re 100% pure coffee to be used in an automatic drip coffee maker. (Currently available at Sam’s Club and Schnucks in St. Louis, Kansas City, and Indianapolis).
- They come in 5 flavors: 100% Columbian, Breakfast Blend, Classic Roast, Classic Decaf and Black Silk. I’m a decaf drinker and found the Classic Decaf to be smooth and full of flavor. Although I had to try the Black Silk what many of the others tested, and it was sensational too!
- Perfect Measures are small Tabs, the equivalent of one 6 fluid ounce cup of coffee – depending on how you like your coffee will determine the number of Tabs you use. Making Perfect Measures easy to personalize, so you create the perfect cup every time!
- They require NO measuring, and NO mess – what could be better!
I wish we’d had Folgers Perfect Measures when I was growing up. I know my kids would have enjoyed these as well when they went to college since finding that perfect scoop was always a challenge for them. Plus they’re environmentally friendly without small containers to toss away. I think this would be an ideal gift for a new bride combined with a coffee maker, a college student, an office, and for myself. Folgers Perfect Measures are a convenient way to make a consistent, great tasting cup of coffee every single time!
Of course, don’t take my word on it, try it for yourself. I’m sure you’ll agree with me. I had the best time meeting everyone on Tuesday, while sampling the new Folgers Perfect Measures and also enjoyed a wonderful lunch! To top off the afternoon, I got a new coffee maker with a variety of Folgers Perfect Measures to take home and share with my family and friends. Making coffee this Thanksgiving will be a snap! By the way, while at the event I conducted a live broadcast on Periscope.tv/VickiBensinger with Cori & Danielle sharing the news about Folgers Perfect Measures.
