Enjoy a Coffee Break with Folgers Gourmet Selections {+Keurig Giveaway}

Being home with young children all day, there's not much I do to treat myself other than a hot shower and hot coffee (and the shower is optional most days, the coffee is not).  Coffee is the one small pleasure that I give myself each day, even if I only have 5 minutes to sit and enjoy it.

When I do drink coffee, I want something bold and flavorful, not something you'd typically find in a diner.  When I was contacted about trying out Folgers Gourmet Selections coffee, I'll admit I was skeptical.   I mean, my late grandparents drank Folgers, and they weren't exactly coffee snobs.

I was sent a huge variety of flavors, specifically10 oz. bags of Toasted Hazelnut, Mocha Swirl, Caramel Drizzle, Vanilla Biscotti, Baked Berry Cobbler, Coconut Cream Pie, as well as K-Cups containing Folger's Classic Roast and Morning Blend coffees.
To my surprise, I really liked these coffees, particularly the K-Cups for the Keurig (which Folgers kindly sent me as part of my tasting package).
While not overly strong, the Classic Roast and Morning Blend were both perfectly balanced, with no bitter after taste.  If I had been given a blind taste test, I would have guessed that they were both higher-priced coffees.
The convenience of making a perfect cup of coffee via the Keurig machine has been great.  I don't have to worry about measuring out the Folgers coffee, and it comes out exactly how I like it every time.

I'll be honest and say that the flavored coffees were not my favorite, but I am personally not a fan of flavored coffee, no matter what the brand.  The ones that most appeal to me are nutty or spicy blends, like hazelnut, mocha and cinnamon, so I can say that I did like the Toasted Hazelnut and Mocha Swirl, mostly as an alternative to dessert.
With the holidays close at hand, I think that Folgers Gourmet Selections would complement your Thanksgiving and Christmas desserts.  You could play barista and mix up some lovely holiday drinks using these flavored coffees.  This Cinnamon Mocha Coffee sounds amazing.
There are more holiday recipes on the Folgers' website, including ones for entrees and desserts.

You can learn more about Folgers Gourmet Selections via the Folgers Facebook page.  As a Folgers Facebook fan, you have a chance to win one of 500,000 FREE SAMPLES (.9 oz each).
