The Best Part of Waking Up...

I’m not sure how I remember this Folgers commercial if it’s dated from 1986 (although stranger things have happened with my memory from my early months/years), but perhaps it reran for years following. Regardless, I have this distinct memory of being curled up in an armchair and watching this Folgers ad, drowsy, almost drugged, from the energy of the Christmas holidays. I loved this commercial though and kept my eyelids from drooping when it came on. This commercial spoke to me. My family bought Folgers—I recognized that big red tub—and I was the youngest in the family with much older siblings. It only made sense that my family was like the one in the commercial—ideal and caffeinated. I’m glad I found this.
