Do you remember growing up and hearing this commercial jingle? “Best Part of Wakin’ Up?” This has been a song that I have enjoyed from Folgers over the years. It amazes me that it still is a part of my brain. My mom used to make Folgers every morning and it always made me think of their famous jingle. Its a memory I can share with my kids from when I was young to when I have grown and they are now experiencing it. It’s the little things that really brighten my day.
Generation after Generation
I wasn’t the only generation that has enjoyed the jingle. Many generations have enjoyed this jingle and many more will continue to enjoy it. Matter-of-fact my own kids sing this jingle already.
Make your own jingle
Are you a musician who loves this jingle? You’re going to love it even more! This year, Folgers has teamed up with country music singer-songwriter Chris Young to encourage aspiring musicians to create their own version of the iconic Best Part of Wakin’ Up™ Jingle in the Folgers Jingle Contest. This is going to be fun! I already love the original jingle, so I can’t wait to see what these musicians come out with next.

It’s simple to enter this contest. Simply upload your best version of the jingle on the website from January 30th through February 27th. It has to include the complete melody and lyrics to “The Best Part of Wakin’ Up is Folgers in Your Cup.” Eventually, 5 semifinalists (February 27th to March 19th) will be chosen. These songwriters/musicians will have a chance to be mentored by Chris Young.
