Coffee Essayists Can Win Trip Home for the Holidays


Chance to win a holiday trip from Folgers or a Coffee Lovers Gift Basket from Folgers and The Food Channel

Are you one of those people who just aren’t themselves until they’ve had that first cup of joe in the morning? Do verge on being passionately poetic about your emotional attachment to a steaming mug of coffee on a cold winter’s day? Well, then, here’s a contest you may want to look into.

Folgers Coffee has announced the launch of its second annual “Home for the Holidays” Essay Contest.  This year, five more lucky families will have the chance celebrate the holidays at home with their families.

Winners Get a 7-Day, 6-Night Trip Home for the Holidays

Entries are now being accepted through November 30, 2010, and consumers can visit for a chance to win a trip home to celebrate the holiday season with family.  Five winners will receive a seven day, six night trip in December, 2010, for themselves and up to three other guests to travel to their hometown destination within the 48 contiguous United States.

To enter, visitors to the site will be asked to answer what they think is the best part of wakin’ up at home with Folgers during the holidays. Winners will be announced on or about December 17,2010. Each trip includes round trip airfare, hotel accommodations, a rental car, $1,000 spending money, one digital camera and a Folgers gift basket.  Open to legal residents of the 50 United States and D.C. 18 years old or older.  Void where prohibited. See for Official Rules and complete details.   

“The sights, sounds and aromas of the holiday season often stir up a sense of nostalgia and a yearning to be at home with family, but everyone may not have the opportunity to go home and be with their loved ones,” said Maribeth Badertscher, Director, Corporate Communications, The J.M. Smucker Company. “Our hope is that Folgers will help the five lucky families celebrate old traditions and make new memories together this holiday season.”

Bonus Chance to Win a Folgers Gift Basket from The Food Channel

You could win a Folgers Gift Basket filled with cool coffee goodies in our Coffee Morning Moments contest. Just submit your most memorable coffee moment–funny, touching, quirky, whatever–on our Food Channel Facebook page. Three lucky Facebook fans will walk away with the Folgers gift basket valued at more than $70. For more information, visit the Food Channel Facebook page. Contest deadline: November 30, 2010.
