Folgers Jingle 30th Anniversary

Celebrating “The Best Part of Wakin’ Up™”

It’s one the most recognizable pieces of advertising that’s been stuck in your head and lingering on the tip of your tongue since 1984. It’s the Folgers® Jingle—and we’re celebrating its 30th anniversary! Composed by Leslie Pearl, the original Jingle debuted in 1984 and has since been transformed into country, gospel, jazz, R & B, folk, Celtic, and a cappella versions.

Over the years, fans have embraced its timeless melody and made it their own. To celebrate its 30th anniversary, take a look back at our Folgers Jingle Contest, which began in 2010. Watch how the classic jingle inspired so many finalists to create their own renditions.
