Flavored Iced Coffee

On August 26th, Folgers unveiled two new coffee products . . . Folgers Filter Packs Coffee and Folgers Instant Coffee Single Serve Packets, which are available in both Classic Roast and Classic Decaf.  The filter packs work with any coffee brewer that has a basket or cone filter.  Sold in two different sizes, one Filter Pack can make up to six 6oz cups of coffee without the mess of using paper filters and loose coffee grounds.

The Instant Coffee Single Serve Packets are the perfect thing for when you are on the go.  Each box contains 7 packets.  The box is so compact that you can easily store it in a kitchen or desk drawer, your purse, a briefcase, or your backpack.  All you need is a cup and some hot water or milk to turn one packet into a hot cup of Folgers coffee.

Recipe:  Easy Caramel Flavored Iced Coffee

1/3 cup warm water
2 Tbsp half and half, creamer, or milk
ice cubes
whipped cream

Step 1.  Pour water over coffee in an 8oz glass.

Step 2.  Add Caramel Syrup and stir until dissolved.

Step 3.  Stir in creamer.

Step 4.  Add ice cubes.

Step 5.  Top with whipped cream

If you prefer to drink unflavored coffee, simply replace the Caramel Syrup with 1 Tbsp of sugar.  This recipe was provided by Folgers.  For more coffee drink recipes, visit
