Do you enjoy coffee? When I was a young adult, I didn't drink coffee much at all. As I got older, I began to enjoy gourmet coffees (which my assistant would bring to our office )... I found out that I enjoyed the 'flavored' coffees ---and the special gourmet coffees the most.
When George and I got married, he introduced me to Folger's French Vanilla Coffee (pictured below). It was perfect for us---just enough flavor to enhance the coffee taste, and not as expensive as some of the other gourmet coffees. We only drink coffee in the mornings --but, since I fix our coffee the night before using a timer, we love to wake up to the smell of coffee each morning. I couldn't imagine a morning without my coffee now.
Recently though, the French Vanilla hasn't been tasting very good to us. I even called Folger's to complain. I don't know what they have done to that coffee but it's just different. BUT-- maybe we are just tired of it--and ready to try something new.
WELL---finding other brands in our price range that offer the French Vanilla flavor which we love isn't easy!!!!! Recently though, while we were shopping in our local Food City grocery store, we saw a new brand that neither of us have ever heard of, Harmony Bay. They have a French Vanilla Creme flavor in that brand so we took it home to try. WELL---let me tell you that that is GREAT coffee. We both are VERY impressed!!!!
Our favorite grocery stores (Kroger's and Walmart) which we use every week do not have that brand--so we'll have to make a trip to Food City to stock up --once in awhile... Harmony Bay is made by Comfort Foods and comes out of Andover, Massachusetts. Have you heard of it???? Below is a picture. IF you see it and enjoy gourmet coffee, give it a try. This truly is a great coffee. It actually has a slight 'smokey' taste which reminds me of one of Starbuck's special coffees (expensive) which we enjoy on occasion.
Wonder if Harmony Bay will give me some free coupons for this advertisement????? ha
