CLOSED! Folgers Coffee & Coffee Maker Giveaway

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on August 26, 2011

This giveaway is now closed…thanks for all your entries!

Winner is Virginia!!! Congrats to you!

They’ve been unveiled!

The brand new products from Folgers are coming hot off the coffee press…right to your grocery store shelf!  The Best Part of Wakin’ Up™ is about to get even better and Folgers® would like you to be one to know about their brand new products.

  • Folgers® Filter Packs
  • Folgers® Instant Single Serve Packets (shown above in Classic Roast and Classic Decaf)

That are sure to make your mornings a little smoother, a little brighter and a lot tastier!

Steve has been enjoying these new products immensely this week. (He is the resident coffee drinker.) He really likes the convenience of the filter packs…and the instant single serve packets with a little caramel syrup is a delightful way to start the day.

You’ll just have to try them yourself…and the best (and cheapest) way to do that is to win some samples…and a new coffee maker!!! Over the weekend, we’ll be giving away a gift basket to celebrate the premier of these new products!

The Folgers Product Premier gift basket ($250 value) includes:

  • Samples of two new Folgers products
  • Cuisinart Drip Coffee Maker

My husband is the coffee drinker; although he has been trying for a very long time to convince me to drink it. I do love the smell of coffee. I occasionally make his coffee for him the night before, so that helps make waking up better. He said an enhancement he would make is to have a way that he can get “every last drop” of coffee out of the container easily as it gets caught on the lip of the container, so it can continue to be “Good to the Last Drop!”

I am trying to enhance my coffee experience by making it at home rather than buying it everyday at a coffee house. I just want to find a coffee that I can make at home that taste just as great as the Coffee House brew.

6am comes very early some days! The best part if waking up would be to gave the coffee already made when I got up!

I am trying to enhance my coffee experience by brewing it at home. It is a whole lot cheaper and tastes almost as good with some flavored creamer.

My husband freelances out of our home so any time of the day or night could be coffee time. Our current coffeemaker is somewhat leaky so replacing it would definitely enhance the coffee experience.

I would have a timer on my coffee pot so I can wake up to a fresh pot of coffee.

Michele August 27, 2011 at 8:50 pm

I love my morning coffee! But one of my kids recently broke my coffee maker! Aaaarrrggghhh! And I don’t have the extra funds at the moment to replace it! :-( Right now the best way to enhance my morning coffee routine would be for me to get a new coffee maker!

One thing our household has never figured out is how to have fresh coffee for the different times of the morning we drink it. My husband’s coffee is fresh because he uses the timer before bedtime. He leaves work at 4;45AM, so by the time I get up at 7:30, it’s cold and takes time to change the filter and make another batch. The other thing that irks me is when the filter slumps over and the pot is full of grounds. Yuck!

I like this: in 1453: Turkish law makes it legal for a woman to divorce her husband if he fails to provide her with her daily quota of coffee.

I’d get a coffee maker that makes coffee on a timer.

Enhancements? I love me some cheese danish (ok don’t tell my diabetes doc) with a good hot cup of Folgers. I don’t make any decisions until I have a cuppa Folgers Decaf. Coffee makes all foods taste great; iced or hot. Decaf or regular. Coffee makes baked goods; bought or homemade (especially chocolate), happy and delicious with a deeper taste. And on occasion (with the advise from you, Erin & $5 Dinners) I can afford to treat myself to lox bagel and cream cheese on Sunday morning. And what better way to enjoy it than with a cup of Folger’s coffee freshly brewed or with their wonderful new product; coffee crystals!

I would stop buying coffee at the coffee shop and make it at home with different flavoring.

To have a coffee pot with a alarm/timer so I could wake up to fresh coffee 5 minutes after my alarm goes off would make my morning routine better for sure!
