From Sept. 26 to Oct. 10, Folgers asked fans to take a pledge on their Facebook page and pour a mug of their favorite Folgers coffee. Coffee fans pledged online to take a coffee break and were entered for a chance to win various prizes ranging from exclusive Folgers coffee mugs to $100 VISA gift cards.
Folgers coffee launched the campaign to see if the company could create the largest coffee break in the world and become a Guinness World Records holder with the help of the public.
The company posted on its Facebook page:
"We did it - we broke the world record! Thanks to all 104,291 pledgers who joined the World's Largest Coffee Break and helped us make history."
Folgers coffee has been around since 1850 and was the first in the drip coffee and instant coffee industries. Folgers coffee is promoted with the slogan "The best part of waking up is Folgers in your cup!"
While history has been made, don’t forget that each and every day deserves a coffee break!
