As long as I can remember that Folger's Wakin' Up jingle has been a part of my memories. In fact, it has been around for 32 years. When I see the Folgers can in the cupboard or as I walk past it in the grocery store the jingle immediately comes into my head. Do that happen to you too? Every time I hear it come on I sing along. It's such a fun cheery song. I was that little kid that went around singing the commercial jingles. I loved singing. I even loved singing them so much I use to burst out in jingle singing during church. My mom wasn't too happy when one time I started singing an old beer jingle on Sunday right in the chapel in the middle of Sunday services, HAHA.

Folger's jingle contest is back with a big old prize of $25,000!! What would you do with an extra $25K? A vacation, a shopping spree, a day at the spa, pay for your kids' college or even a new car?

I was just watching some of the past winners and they are pretty darn good. I especially like the entry by Sawyer and no it’s not just because his mother was smart enough to name him Sawyer like I named my son ;)

Wouldn’t it be fun to get together with some friends, family or even your kids and write your own version of the Folger’s Jingle? I love the photo above of the father-daughter duo. You don't’ have to be a professional to enter. Don’t be intimidated by what you think other people are doing. Give it a go. Be creative. Have some fun. What sweet memories you can make while enjoying a cup of Folgers and scheming up a great entry!
